City of Industry is a promising hardcore punk/noise/stoner/screamo/sludge rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 2 months ago with their super dynamic song; I Digress, off from their latest single release with the same title which was released in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2017. They have started their careers with an EP called; “City of Industry EP” in 2017, continued with another single; “Guilt” in 2018, a full-length album; “American Habits are Hard to Break” in 2018, then released another full-length album; “Conspire Conspire Conspire” in 2019, and their latest single; “I Digress” in 2020. Their discography and work ethic is simply amazing, talking highly positive about the band alone. Now please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
City of Industry is one of the very few bands I have seen who is making a big difference with their discography as I have also mentioned above. They are simply born to rock. Period. I came across their music a while ago on Submithub and immediately decided to feature them here on Metalhead Community. They call it hardcore punk but I don’t know how to define this music style properly, to be honest. They have screamo, progressive, sludge, and stoner rock elements in their music, and I’d choose not to limit anything by naming the genre here. I Digress is a very powerful song with its overall vibes. Strong character, tense atmosphere, powerful attitude, and super raw sound. You hear it once and it immediately carves its mark in your memory. I loved the energy they are channeling to the listener through speakers in this song. They have done a phenomenal job by catching all the raw energy in their performances. Believe me, not everybody can do this. I can sense live performing vibes in their recording which perfectly suited what they do, took the song up to another level. These American gentlemen are obviously very talented and experienced musicians, showing huge potential with their raw energy, dynamics in their music, instrumentation, energy flow, and of course understanding of music. I Digress begins with a super tense atmosphere and leaves the listener breathless for 2 minutes long. You never feel like getting bored or losing the excitement, on the contrary, I felt like I could continue listening to it at least for 2 more minutes!
