Riddlebreak Ring in the New Era of Progressive Metalcore in “Allegiant” Music Video [South Africa]

Riddlebreak

Riddlebreak is a progressive metal act based in South Africa and holding a lineup of Jade Osner (vocals), Gareth Reed (guitar, backing vocals), Julian Vosloo (guitar), Roushan van Niekerk (bass), Laura Atkinson (violin), and Gordon Bosma (drums). They’ve shared the stage with Periphery, Monuments, Unearth, Protest the Hero, and more.

Just recently, the band dropped a new single, “Allegiant,” which has a modern progressive metalcore style in the vein of Erra or to a smaller extent Born of Osiris, yet there is larger focus on musical virtuosity and pacing rather than vocal melodies or heaviness. You can watch the music video for the single below.
