Vancouver metal heavyweights Unleash the Archers are streaming two more pre-production tracks from their upcoming release, Demons of the AstroWaste, due out this May.
The album is a concept piece telling the tale of an all-powerful sword that is created to protect mankind, but ultimately corrupts whoever wields it to evil.
General Of The Dark Army – (album track 4) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oI9PWxb9MkU
“With the sword firmly in hand, our protagonist journeys to a distant system to meet the General about a job,” explains vocalist Brittney Hayes, “but any work he may offer will only lead our mercenary further down the path of darkness…”
Daughters of Winterstone – (album track 5) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QTal4YLek0
“This song tells of the plight of a planet called Ental, whose people have been forced to mine fuel from a mineral called Winterstone,” says Hayes. “They are enslaved by the corporation that sells the fuel, and now the General has set his sights on this precious resource.”
Kicking off with Demons of the AstroWaste release shows in Nanaimo (May 19th), Victoria (May 20-21st) and Vancouver (May 22nd), Unleash the Archers will be embarking on a massive cross-Canada tour in promotion of the album. Stay tuned for info and check them out in your town!
The band’s 2009 release, ‘Behold the Devastation’, is out on CDN Records and available at these locations:
