Sleeping With the Enemy(RIP) was a metal band who was very influential to the kids that went to see their shows. Mostly known for br00tal breakdowns, catchy 2 steps, and powerful power steps. They took metal and put a whole different spin on it combining elements of metal and hardcore fusing a sound never heard before by the virgin ears of metal listeners worldwide. Sharing the stage with Emmure and Winds of Plague they were easily identified in the scene.
There are at least two bands using this name:
1) Arbiter is a metal band known for their clear-cut mix of many types of metal and hardcore music. From dark, brooding elements to nearly humorous passages, Arbiter's music truly spans the spectrum. Arbiter formed in late 2009 and in late 2010 the band had self-recorded and self-released 'Colossus', their critically acclaimed debut album. Only a year later and Arbiter has landed aboard Famined Records and will soon unleash their sophomore effort 'Ironclad/Machinations', a "split-album" that explores the concept of having two sides to one story.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Donnybrook brings an old-school, in-your-face style that has drawn comparisons to Madball, Death Threat, and District 9. The group was formed in early 2003 by six friends who were fed up with the insincerity plaguing the scene they grew up loving and believing in. With their debut four-song EP now out on 1917 Records, coupled with their plans to tour both the East and West coasts (and soon after, the world!), and you'll see why Donnybrook is poised to thrust themselves into the mix with hardcore's heaviest hitters.

DIY in the literal sense of the word, Canada's Powercup may book their own tours, screenprint their own shirts and press their own tofu etc, but they're also slavishly devoted to the cult of the power tool and 'Home Improvement's blue collar patriarch Tim Allen. The gimmick alone isn't the selling point, but 2010's brilliantly named, "Renovate At All Costs“, the Montreal trio's debut full-length, is a ferocious blast of rough hewn...
