A band that isn't so much trying to re-create the sound of Linkin Park as update it, Dangerkids blend EDM with heavy post-hardcore on their debut album, Collapse. While rap-rock is a sound that's prone to disaster, the band has the confidence to make it work, finding just the right blend of angst and swagger to pull the whole thing off. When combined with Collapse's intricate production, Dangerkids prove to be worthy successors to Linkin Park, taking a lesson from the rap-rock stalwarts while still being influenced by more contemporary styles.
