Despite having won "best new act" awards from both Kerrang! and Metal Hammer last year, London-based metalcore five-piece Rise to Remain have attracted almost as much attention for the fact that frontman Austin Dickinson is the son of Iron Maiden singer Bruce. Twin-guitar harmonising aside, there's little in common with Maiden here, Dickinson Jr screaming as often as he sings. The urgent-sounding "This Day Is Mine" is the pick of their largely impressive full-length debut, the melodic choruses offset by barked vocals and shred guitar.

Their review was positive

A fine debut from a British metal band with a great future. Raziq Rauf 2011 Rise to Remain have been sitting on City of Vultures for a while now. After signing to EMI the London five-piece took a year to shape this debut LP – but now it’s seen the light of day, delivering on the anticipation, any awards to come its way are wholly warranted. This is as good a debut album from a British metal band as you’re likely to hear in 2011.
