Listened to a few songs from Alien but haven’t given it much of a chance. I thought Mesmer was pretty good but I can’t listen to it for months on end like I can with Discoveries. Northlane was my introduction to the genre and their lyrics in the first 2 albums really drew me in.
I like pretty much everything from Neck Deep, their albums do get a bit more poppy as they go but still not bad.
Tried listening to Alaska after hearing about them a lot but I’m not a big fan of high screams. From what I’ve heard by Crystal Lake I might be able to get into them. Haven’t heard of the others so I’ll check them out.
Recently been listening to August Burns Red. They’re pretty good but I don’t think I could listen to them for months on end which is what I usually do when I find something I really like. For me it’s almost like certain albums are connected to 3-6 month periods of my life
