A blend of Melodic Hardcore Punk with a little influence from 90’ emo and a dash of confidence with a lot of guts – that’s NO GUTS NO GLORY.

A storm of hard riffs with a restless rhythmic battery combined with a soaring chorus – those are the things that could describe The Dead Lay Waiting – one of the most promising newcomers from the UK’s metal scene.
