Keychain / Press

“These guys are bringing back Nu-Metal in an energetic and intense manner. They put on a hell of a show here in Dallas, and dominated the stage at Rocklahoma.”

“Limp Bizkit wishes they were Keychain.”

“The next Limp Bizkit? Keychain has the sound and talent that you can make the argument they are!”

“Keychain bring Nu Metal back in an unashamedly brutal yet anthemic way, and they are a better band than half of what came out the first time around. 'Breaking Out' is imperative listening and downright genius. 10/10”

“Their groove is extraordinary and infectious, and the vocals are very strong. There's no denying this band's amazing energy and skill.”

“Keychain has taken the best bits of bands like Static-X, Linkin Park, Testeagles, Korn and the mighty Bizkit, and mixed it all together to create a new wave sound that captures more melody than any of the aforementioned ever could. 8/10”

“Think of a fine blend of Korn, Limp Bizkit and Papa Roach. Add a bit of Ill Nino and P.O.D., and then top it all off with some Rage Against The Machine for the most exciting pieces. Here is the recipe for instant success.”

“The new Korn, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit has been born". 9/10”

“It’s not often we break our rules and review an EP/Album that’s already been released but Montreal’s Nu Metal Sensations Keychain are an exception as this release is gonna blow your mind. 9.5/10”

“After hearing the first track "Prime Time", I was hooked. I knew they were the real deal as each track shows their musical sensibility and incredible power. If you dig the metal sound of the late 90’s early 2000’s, then Keychain should be on your list of bands to watch.”

"The group is still in its early stages, but there is already some talk that we are dealing with the successors of Korn, Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park."

“Musical styles don't die easily and as far as Nu Metal is concerned, there's a new rising star. Their name is Keychain, they hail from Canada and they have enough energy to electrify a small city. This EP should be their breakthrough since they have everything a nu-metal band needs.”

“Nu Metal with massive Rap-Rock influence right here, right now! This band kicks it out like Korn did back in the day but brings in their own fine-tuned elements to the sound.”

“Ringing in what seems to be a “New Uprising Of Old-school Nu-Metal”, Canuck boxer short flashers KEYCHAIN seem to be doing everything necessary to grab our attention. Well done and Very Highly Recommended! 8/10”

“Keychain are in fact looking to revive the Nu Metal genre once popular in the 1990’s which brought out acts of the likes of Limp Bizkit and Korn, and Keychain may be among Canada’s only original bands of the style.”

“The mix of styles, the energy, the grooves and the power of bands like Korn, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit and Skindred together, multiply that by five and you get Keychain.”

“Keychain is undeniable! The hardest thing in the world to do, would be to imagine a band MORE Nu Metal than Keychain.”

“Taking the path that few others have taken (Mudvayne, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, P.O.D., Sevendust) but bringing it to the the modern rock and metal world is KEYCHAIN. Hailing from Montreal, Canada, they are here to not only shake things up but to take it off the hook.”

“Their mixture of genres makes them their own unique sound that as soon as you hear them, you know exactly who they are. They are not one of those "guess the band" types where you listen to a band and you end up so frustrated because there are so many that sound alike. No, Keychain is one of a kind band that you'll have no problem saying, "That's the band 'Keychain'," when they come on the radio or pop up on you're playlist.”

“They don't seem to care what anyone thinks about nu-metal and just want to become the next Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park. As far as I'm concerned, they can. They certainly know how to make a contiguous piece of music in great nu-metal tradition.”

“Nu-Metal is making a comeback! And it's starting with Montreal's Keychain!”

“Through “Prime Time,” the band effortlessly stitches together various genres to create a sound that is quick to capture and demand the listener’s attention. The song seems to resonate an upbeat and energy packed feel that will have the listener head banging along in no time!”

“Let us introduce you to Keychain, quite possibly the modern day answer to Korn, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot.”

“Can't get his tune out my head, good job lads!”

Peter Clone Moore - Anti-Clone

“Their single, “Prime Time,” was quite the refresher in the modern Nu-Metal scene where you have Limp Bizkit still sputtering along and rapcore groups like Hollywood Undead confused about what to do with the future of their sound. 9/10”

“Sounds really good. Reminds me of early Saliva. I'm digging it.”

Jeremy Williams - 11 Degree Management Group

“Keychain combine elements of metal, alternative rock and hip hop to create a really catchy, bouncy sound that still hits you like a ton of very sharp bricks.”

“The Montreal act is crafting a hard hitting sound out of metal, alternative rock, and hip hop vibes.”

“It's 'Prime Time' - Montreal's KEYCHAIN are ready to rebirth Nu-Metal.”

“Channeling Sevendust, Korn and P.O.D, “Prime Time” simply let’s rip with huge choruses, heavy-ass riffs and enough aggression to tear the skin off your motherf*ckin’ face! Nu Metal is back and KEYCHAIN could very well lead the charge! 8/10”

“Keep 'em coming guys!”
