Bandcamp Series: Stand Your Ground - Standards (2013)

Stand Your Ground are an American hardcore metal band from Tennessee.

After touring relentlessly and gathering a strong US fan base, the band released their first full-length album Despondenseas in 2011 and this 5 track EP Standards in 2013.

The band are currently made up of Brandi Pillow on vocals, Daniel Taylor and Micah Messamore on guitar, Jonathan Taylor on bass and Tyler Domingues on drums.  Their sound is aggressive but also melodic, their EP is short yet sharp.  The tracks are real crowd pleasers and I am sure they would be immense when played live.

Take a listen to Standards on Bandcamp (and get it bought while you are there!):

The EP is available to buy for just $4.95 USD and the first album can be downloaded from Amazon for just £7.49 GBP.

As if that wasn't enough, here is the official video for Nautilus, a track taken from the album. Enjoy.
