Herod  


This Buffalo quintet came together in 2000, the members coming from several more hardcore-oriented bands but wishing to play a more metallic style. Herod's music seems rooted in the style played by several metalcore bands these days (occasional shades of Swedish melodic death, frequent guitar harmonizing), but Judah Nero's vocals set the band apart a bit. Unlike most metalcore singers (who either employ the hardcore shouting exclusively, or mix in a scant few clean vocals to the screaming), Nero opts for the clean, melodic style for the most part, saving the shouting bursts for a few punctuating moments. As such, Herod comes off as a bit more dynamic, melodic, and multidimensional than most bands in this field.
