Despite another year of no touring, Like Moths To Flames still managed to have a solid year of music this year by releasing their second EP under UNFD this past November, Pure Like Porcelain. Proving they’re one of the US’s biggest metalcore exports this year, the EP saw tracks like ‘The Preservation of Hate’ produce serious carnage to our braincells this year with some mega-crunchy riffs.
While they weren’t stirring up a storm playing around with experimental metal and all that, rhythm guitarist Zach Pishney definitely made his rounds seeing what else was the year was cooking up music-wise. Hear what he was inspired by this year…
