Loathe (stylized as LOATHE) is an English metalcore band formed in Liverpool, England in 2012, from the demise of other local bands, including Our Imbalance.[1]

Musical style[edit]

Loathe have been categorized as progressive metalcore,[2] metalcore,[3][4][5] death metal,[6][7] nu metal,[3][4] progressive metal,[5][8] and avant-garde metal.[9] Flick of the Finger described the band's style as "a complex sonic architecture which weaves post-punk, hardcore, heavy electronics, djent and deathcore with a side of prog... melding their sonic threads into an anguished and searingly surreal entity which reels you deep into the abyss"[9]. The band have also cited influences including Slipknot, Deftones, Korn and the Silent Hill 2 and Akira soundtracks.[10]
