It’s always a treat when you hear a release that you instantly fall in love with. Our friends in Mandroid Echostar were able to do just that almost immediately I began listening to their new EP Citadels, which opens with haunting acoustic guitars and some of the most beautiful vocals I’ve heard all year. The rest of the EP blows the doors wide open as a highly potent cross-pollination of Protest the Hero and Coheed and Cambria. This is really throwing a wrench in my plans for a best of 2013 list. Check it out below.
Citadels will be out officially this Thursday, November 21st, but you can still bag a pre-order over at ManageMerch.
