Believe it or not, there are still bands out there making top-notch melodic metalcore and not being horrible at it. In fact, our friends in Seattle based group Numbers are among the best you’ll be able to find in the genre, record deal or not. What helps their cause is the prog influence and the adept piano skills of vocalist Kyle Bishop. Their upcoming album Three isn’t quite complete yet, but the album’s already in the midst of its pre-release promotional cycle well ahead of its spring release. Another album to add to the list of anticipated albums this year? You bet.
During the break, the group released the first music video from the album in the form of ‘Legal Lee Speaking.’ The song itself is pretty stellar, and it’s hard to not be impressed by that insane keyboard solo at the end of the track. There just aren’t enough keyboard solos in metal these days. Check it out:
If you dig what you hear, you can pre-order the album on Bandcamp. It’s slated to be out April 1st.
