Hardened metal heroes from Alaska knock us out with ‘Lanterns’
Tough guys from Anchorage, Alaska, who have been preaching the virtues of heavy metal for more than 20 years now. They’ve already survived umpteen metal styles (nu-metal, metalcore, post-hardcore, heavy metal) and remain as relevant as ever on seventh longplayer ‘Lanterns’ (out via Spinefarm since Sept. ’17), more so than the baker’s dozen of metalcore-bands that have been shooting out the ground like mushrooms in recent years. Well-seasoned metal métier that will still knock you sideways!
For fans of Killswitch Engage, Norma Jean, Atreyu, Deftones, Chimaira
In the press “The songwriting is sharp and focused, with ample heaviness for metal fans and enough hooks and melodies to make hard rock fans happy.” – Loudwire
“The band’s evolution is as challenging as it is cathartic. ‘Lanterns’ shows they’ll never stop fighting, no matter what’s thrown their way.” – Metal Hammer
