Dublin Based ‘Rouen’ Release Debut Single ‘Breed’



Based in Dublin, Rouen are a five piece band who utilise the best elements of Metalcore, Hardcore and Punk to create a sound that includes heavy riffing, hardcore vocal delivery and bouncing grooves.

When we were sent on their track and promo pack I was very surprised at first. How did this band go under my radar? It would turn out the lads were building everything behind the scenes before even creating a Facebook page. Which has to be admired! Most start a page and when the music drops they are forgotten by most. Not these lads though! They got it right! 

If this their debut single is anything to go by, these lads could be a real force very soon! This is a track you expect bands together years to produce and definitely not their first single!  When I saw the mail  I thought ‘Right, lets see how I can swing this into something positive…’ I was certainly not expecting this! 

The energy throughout this track is infectious and I can image it will go down really well in a live environment. There’s a great dynamic throughout,  moving up and down the gears effortlessly!  Full of hooks, riffs, great use of duel vocalists  all while also creating a sense of atmosphere.

I can’t say enough good things about this track really. I’m more than a little interested to see what this band produce next. The bar has been set so high here James Cameroon is nowhere in sight! 

I’ll be keeping a firm eye on these lads as they develop. They claim to be the best aspects of their influences, while a bold claim especially from a band releasing their debut single. These lads back up their words! 

One to watch!!
