Is This The Future of Extreme Music?

Last week, we posted an episode of Ask The Artist where we asked a bunch of bands on the tour where they see extreme music going. There were some interesting answers but surely nobody thought it would come to this.

The band Skip The Foreplay just released a video for the track "This City (We’re Taking Over)" and I am a little scared to say this might be where metal is headed. Featuring vocal appearances by Alexandre Erian (ex-Despised Icon), Tyler Hoare (Blessed By A Broken Heart) and Jonathan Cabana (Blind Witness), the track blends club synth and old-school hardcore style breakdowns to create a track that I am sure would be played in LA clubs. I guess this not THAT new, as bands like Genghis Tron and iwrestledabearonce have experimented with synth before, but never this poppy/mainstream. If you haven't regurgitated your lunch, let us know what you think in the comments…
