Armed For Apocalypse
Armed for Apocalypse came from nowhere and nothing. The sludgy four-piece from the small Northern California college town of Chico have worked relentlessly to leave their imprint on metal. Through tours across Europe, around the states and up and down the West Coast, they've continued to spread their name in the best way possible: word of mouth. They don't play dress-up and they don't turn down. They just play crushing songs that go from slow to slower, from muck to mire, from mosh to circle-pit. And sometimes they'll make a left turn and end up at epic. Simply put, it's rock 'n' roll music tuned way down and pissed way off.
The upcoming full-length, "The Road Will End," promises to be a complex study in heaviness. One-finger chords and single-string riffs, complicated by sophisticated voicings and even an occasional solo. No triggers, no wanky "shredding," no posturing, no cowardice, no frills.
The Lion's Daughter
The musical equivalent of what the most frightening, violent, and disturbing scenes from a good midnight movie might sound like. THE LION'S DAUGHTER from St. Louis, Missouri unleash a crushing assault of dense frying riffs, pummeling rhythms, pumping bass lines, and throat-shredding vocals supported by creepy synthesizers creating a seething intensity that borders on the frightful. Their third full length album, 'Future Cult' is without doubt a fitting soundtrack to the post-apocalyptic hellscape that is to come.
THE LION'S DAUGHTER was formed in 2007 by guitarist / vocalist Rick Giordano, drummer Erik Ramsier, and bassist / vocalist Scott Fogelbach. The band was originally conceived out of hatred for the insincere and uninspired fodder that was choking the mainstream metal scene. They take inspiration from a myriad of extreme metal’s subgenres but live by no musical limitations and are driven to please no audience but themselves. THE LION'S DAUGHTER don't just play as if they want to see this world end, their sound implies that they want to be the ones to destroy it.
Since the band’s inception, THE LION'S DAUGHTER have built a reputation as a formidable live force, sharing stages with HIGH ON FIRE, PIG DESTROYER, BEHEMOTH, TORCHE, MISERY INDEX, NACHTMYSTIUM, DARK FUNERAL, and many others. True to their underground ethics, the musicians toured around the United States on the backs of several independent EPs and split releases.
Back in 2016, 'Existence Is Horror' came with the expected anger and aggression and easily detectable undertones of early NEUROSIS. Yet something of the creeping mood and atmosphere that also reminds of groups like SKINNY PUPPY or even GOBLIN.
Let THE LION'S DAUGHTER guide you on an even darker musical ride through the mind with the 'Future Cult'!
