life

Artist: More Than Life
Release: What’s Left of Me
Label: Holy Roar  
Genre: Rock

Charting a distinct evolution from their starting point of darkly melodic hardcore to almost alt-rock/indie inflections and tones, More Than Life are undeniably crossing over to pastures new without ever forgetting their roots nor history of their sound. Whether a conscious move or not – ‘What’s Left Of Me’ is an album for every rock fan – emotionally raw, heartfelt, energetic, anthemic and epic in the truest sense of the word. This could be just the beginning of a brave new chapter.
