Behold the Devastation
This is Unleash the Archers' first studio album and it was first UTA album to showcase artwork by JP Fournier (Edguy, Blind Guardian, Dragonforce) Comprised of eight gripping tracks, 'Behold The Devastation' is a fantastic display of their talent for combining several metal genres into one seamless entity. Notable tracks: 'The Ritual and the Reckoning' and 'The Filth and the Fable' Unleash the Archers are a quintet that know how to melt faces. Their style of metal seamlessly combines death elements with power vocals, thrash riffs with breakdowns, blackened screams with the walking bass lines of British heavy metal; they've shared the stage with 3 Inches Of Blood, Dismember, The Faceless, Leaves Eyes, Blackguard, Stratovarius... The band is not confined to one genre, but instead strives to span them all. They play metal, plain and simple. They've been ripping it up across Canada for the last five years and have built a huge coast-to-coast fanbase. This summer they toured the rest of North America and brought their new wave of heavy metal to the US and Mexican masses. Their enthusiasm on stage is contagious, their charisma is catching, and they bring an exciting live show every time they play, no matter where they are or who shows up. Brittney works the merch booth every night and is always down to chat, and the boys will be drinking at the bar right along side you (shots are very much appreciated ;). UTA are extremely hard working, they've always got a project on the go, whether it's new songs, a music video or new artwork to add to your t-shirt collection. Ever changing, never slowing down, they are driven by their immeasurable love of music, and united in their quest for success. UTA recently released a three track EP titled 'Defy The Skies' on 7' vinyl, and it is a great example of the new direction they are taking with their music. Immediately following the release of the EP, UTA hit the road; with dates ranging from Vancouver to LA, on to Mexico City, through New York and Toronto, the tour was the largest undertaking of their career. In May 2011 their sophomore album 'Demons Of The AstroWaste' was released to rave reviews and a massively positive reception. The subsequent tour across Canada was a roaring success, and included 40+ dates from Victoria BC all the way to Charlottetown PEI. This 12 track concept album was recorded at Vogville Studios and Harbourside Studios with Nick Engwer, and vocals were done at the Hive Soundlab with Stu McKillop of Rain City Recorders. Album artwork was completed by JP Fournier (Blind Guardian, Immortal, Dragonforce, etc;) In August 2009 Unleash the Archers released their first full studio album titled 'Behold The Devastation', recorded by Jason Martin of OmegaMediaCore Studios in Richmond BC. Future plans for the band include another music video and a new album to be written this winter.
