Louder Than Quiet slaps hard AF and now their very own Alireza is the breaking barriers as the first-ever hip hop signee to noted metal label, Earache Records.
A diehard rocker of his own making, Alireza is used to fusing musical sounds and bending genres to his will. Inspired by his metal work with Louder Than Quiet, the new solo artist has been drawing inspiration from artists like Denzel Curry, Bring Me the Horizon and even folks like Rico Nasty. Teaming up with Revolver for a new documentary, The Man Behind the Bars, about his musical journey, Alireza says, “There are a lot of Black metalheads in the DMV. You go outside of here and everyone’s acting like I’m an alien because I listen to certain music. It’s wild.” But not anymore.
Marrying Norweigian Black metal with anthemic post-hardcore melodies, this groundbreaker is forging his own path on the hardcore scene.
