We’re living in a time when a lot of bands that once tended to the heavier side have made a turn for more clean vocals and a quieter less aggressive sound. Will White Arms of Athena follow this trend? Find out for yourself after the jump.
For White Arms of Athena fans, many of whom are passionate about the Jamie King-produced Astrodrama, it’s no surprise that the five men from Texas plan a lot of change in the new self-titled record due out in December.
“Fans can expect a very different album,” singer Josh Everett says. “We feel the new material is intense as ever but channeled into different moods and movements than the ones explored on Astrodrama.”
It’s that intensity that seems to set this self-titled release, produced by Travis Kammeyer at Farenheit Studio in Johnson City, Tennessee apart from a lot of other bands that have softened their overall sound.
Josh actually sings all cleans on this record while bassist Tom “T-Sif” Sifuentes and Colin McDonnell contribute some harsher vocals. But as you can tell in this new 51-second teaser released by Prosthetic Records, this band is still filled with energy and yes, intensity.
Look for an announcement soon of pre-orders for the December 2 release.
