Lyric Video Premiere: Lycanthro’s “Plague the Land/King of Decay”Wednesday, 4th July 2018
Hungry for some epic metal to get you through the midpoint of your week? We’ve partnered with Ottawa’s Lycanthro to host their latest lyric video for that of “Plague the Land/King of Decay,” which is from the band’s latest work, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The album is currently available for purchase HERE if you dig what you hear, and you can check out the Bandcamp widget below if you feel you need some more convincing (or just want to jam the rest of the release).
Of the song:
“Plague the Land”/ “King of Decay” is an epic two-part odyssey into the lands of diversity, the first song very commercial in the melodic metal sense with James Delbridge accentuating his vocals with mid-range strength and splendor, while “King of Decay” ramping up the power metal proceedings through a barrage of battle tested riffs and galvanizing hooks.
Snippets from Matt Coe’s review of Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse:
“Canadian band Lycanthro released a self-titled EP last year that co-mingled power, traditional, and thrash aspects to their sound, establishing a presence which has been built upon for the follow-up Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The four-songs contain interesting twists, especially for those who enjoy the epic side of the genre as there’s 33-minutes of music to consume.”
“Lycanthro offer hope for the Ottawa metal scene – taking some classic influences and intertwining them into a potent, headbanging outfit. International attention and accolades aren’t far behind as these members grow.”
