FAIM - "Opus"

There's nothing quite like discovering a band just as they're breaking up. Denver's FAIM have announced that they're upcoming album will be their last, and they've released another single off of it. We don't normally cover a lot of hardcore, but something about "Opus" just works. FAIM's latest is heavy and full of screaming vocals, but somehow it isn't quite as abrasive as hardcore normally is. There's just something about "Opus" that is sucking me in. I think there's just enough of a sense of melody here to soften the blow just enough. And when I say there's just enough melody, I mean barely any sense of melody. This is definitely a hardcore song, and not a melodic hardcore song.

You can listen to "Opus" below. Your Life and Nothing Else is due out March 3 on Safe Inside Records. The album can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on FAIM, check out the band's website.
