Only the Chosen at The Lost Horizon

On Dec. 26 the Lost Horizon hosted 95X’s Local’s Only Winter Warmer. The spirit of the holidays was still in effect as entry was free when a donation of warm clothing for the needy was brought to the door. Closing out the six band lineup was Only the Chosen, a high energy hardcore band from Syracuse, NY. The band is tight and the vocals show a dynamic range from melodic singing to guttural screams. While formed in early 2014, Only the Chosen is earning a following for their kinetic stage performance. Their lead singer has been known to jump off of risers, throw kicks, and strip off his shirt. The group describes themselves as ‘Post Traumatic Hardcore’ but they deliver so much more. Always entertaining and more musical than their genre suggests, they are definitely worth checking out.
