Heavy Metal is more than just a style of music; it’s a way of life. You often come across this saying from a handful of various people from all around the world. But what does it really mean? What’s behind the world known as heavy metal or simply put “metal,” anyways?

Well heavy metal is a genre of rock music that developed within the late 1960s and early 1970s, growing a mass community in England and the U.S. Metal caused a major uproar all its own, which broke the sound barriers for all metal artists in recent time, which attracted large amounts of audiences that were the breaking points for the metal genre overall.

Metal slowly, but surely, made its way into the music scene until it blew up with no one being able to control it. Thus, the birth of a dozen other sub-categories was awoken once the 80s and 90s had opened up the metal music world even further. Developing the glam metal zone down to thrash metal that lead down a more darker path of destruction; metalcore, black metal, death metal, hardcore, and a wide range of various elements were blended in to create this outstanding obsession. This brings us back to how it all began with the simple genre known as “heavy metal.”

From the outskirts of Providence, RI a unique metal band gave re-birth to this genre with “Was and Is to Come,” a solid piece of work with such raw intensity and emotion engraved behind it; it was sure to make its way to a follow-up. A few years later, 2009 had struck and “In Ancient of Days,” was unleashed. Delivering 11-tracks that truly displays a strong and distinct mix of their influences. Ranging from Testament, to Metallica, down to Slayer, Thy Will Be Done, delivers.. And they deliver in a whole new way.

“Unto The Sanctified,” breaks the sound waves when opening up this album, creating this thunderous guitar rapture of heart pulsing guitar riffs with repeating soloing texture to back it all up sending a pulsing wave of energy that never seems to fade away. “And Fire Will Fall,” tends to pour out the Metallica influences sounding a lot like “Master Of Puppets,” with that enraging fast energy with ground breaking vocals that shatter the instruments altogether.

“(Rebel Or Regret),” makes you regret not listening to this album sooner, wrapping up all the intensity that was previously played in one single rhythm that it makes you want to go back and listen to the album over and over again.
