Las Vegas, NV.  independent Hardcore/Metal band TAKE have recently dropped their EP, The Dead Will Rise, and we think you should take a listen. After a ten-year hiatus, TAKE is back with their powerful, game-changing sound that mixes elements of hardcore, metal, and rock. It’s edgy, it is abrasive, and it is going to hit you over the head like a two-ton brick of pure adrenaline. Step into the pit and prepare to throwdown with one of Nevada’s best kept secrets. Influenced by bands like Rage Against the Machine, Kiss, Deftones, Sleeping Giant, Iron Maiden, Soulfly but spitting out a sound entirely their own. RIYL: Imagine if Rage Against The Machine, Iron Maiden, and Sleeping Giant had a baby, that little bundle of joy would be TAKE.
