PALEFACE SWISS describe themselves as „Switzerland’s finest heavy music” – and we can only agree. The band from Zurich blasted into our ear canals so brutally at FULL FORCE 2022 that we couldn’t help but invite them again for 2023. Even though PALEFACE feel most comfortable in (beatdown) hardcore, the guys often show off influences from slam and nu metal acts like Slipknot. One topic that is especially important to these guys is mental health, which they deal with in their music in intense and often extreme ways. No light fare but definitely a recommendation on the FULL FORCE menu!
