Spiritbox, “Holy Roller (feat. Ryo Kinoshita)”
HQ: Vancouver Island, Canada
RELEASED: Oct. 1
Spiritbox and Crystal Lake are among the most exciting bands in modern metalcore, so when the former dropped a new version of their already popular “Holy Roller” featuring that latter’s vocalist — Ryo Kinoshita — the community was understandably hyped. And the track didn’t disappoint. The song is still equally beautiful and brutal with Kinoshita adding some truly incredible lows that complement Spiritbox vocalist Courtney LaPlante perfectly. Both of these vocalists are top tier.
HQ: Baltimore, Maryland
