Emerging from Pennsylvania in 2018 and combining the percussive force of second-generation drummer Max Portnoy with the pure, war-torn fury of vocalist and YouTube sensation Justin Bonitz, nu-core gang Tallah are on a mission to revamp and modernize the much-loved sound of popular nu-metal sensations of the early 2000s.
Drawing inspiration from the musical influences of their youth (the likes of Slipknot, Korn and Linkin Park), Tallah fuse the razor-sharp precision of these acts with the raw edges of modern hardcore music displayed by current sensations Code Orange, Vein, Candy and Fire From The Gods.
The band’s debut album Matriphagy, a harrowing concept album of brutally disturbing metal, was met with critical acclaim, with Slipknot’s Knotfest crowning it “one of the best metal releases of the year” and Metal Hammer declaring Tallah are ‘leading the charge on the new wave of Nu-Metal”. Matriphagy was also devoured by the fans, with the album racking up 13 million Spotify streams in the months since its release.
2021 saw Tallah indulged fans with a colossal collaboration “Vanilla Paste” (where they were joined by members of the formidable Chelsea Grin, Fire From The Gods and Guerrilla Warfare), team up with Avatar for their North American tour in Sept/Oct 2021, hit up spots at major USA festivals such as Blue Ridge Rock Fest and Welcome To Rockville, and receive nominations for Best International Breakthrough Band at the UK’s Heavy Music Awards and Best Live [Streamed] Act at the AIM Independent Music Awards.
Tallah’s cruelly ferocious new album The Generation Of Danger, due for release on November 18th, 2022 via Earache Records will only serve to extend their fascinatingly dark nu-core metal further into the metal community.
To date, Tallah have clocked up 16 million streams and 6 million YouTube views. They have over 114k monthly Spotify listeners and have had tracks added to 25 Spotify editorial playlists.
