Nashville hardcore band CHAMBER have released their debut album “Cost of Sacrifice”, out today, October 23 via Pure Noise Records. Following the band’s 2019 EP “Ripping / Pulling / Tearing”, “Cost of Sacrifice” is a study in strength from adversity, written and recorded during a period of transition and turmoil for the band. Guitarist Gabe Manuel elaborates: “We were all going through our own personal struggles and we found solace in working on these songs and getting everything we were feeling out on the table. We are all influenced by a lot of different kinds of music and art, and while it was a challenge to represent all of those things on the record in a cohesive way, we grew as songwriters and musicians as a result of that challenge”.

In its entirety, “Cost of Sacrifice”, produced by Randy LeBoeuf, is a gob-smacking, life-affirming, invigorating smack across the face to anyone who dares to despair that the genre’s salad days are forgotten. Angry, ferocious, mournful and at times blissfully melodic, Chamber deal in devilish speed and frantic nervosa, without sacrificing unrelenting heaviness. Emotional confessions abound in the lyrics, with a plainspoken examination of trauma and personal upheaval, befitting the music.

Chamber offer a stark reminder of the true spirit of hardcore, when the authentic community becomes a shelter for outcasts and outsiders. The Nashville band has blazed a trail in clubs and theaters in North America and the UK, sharing stages with Counterparts, Can’t Swim and Gideon. The band are at the vanguard of a full-on throat-ripping revival, in attitude and spirit, stubbornly pushing forward, with their own signature on what was in danger of becoming a lifeless genre. Chamber are champions of the outcast, with a foot in the past and fists banging at the future.
