Polyphia have hit a new high on New Levels New Devils. They’ve developed a style that’s as intense as it is fresh, something you could use to tempt the pop fans in your life down the dirty road that leads to heavier things.

How has this not gotten more traction? Math Rock with prog elements + great musicianship + TRAP AND EDM ELEMENTS
