Country: Sweden
Title: Discovery
Label: Art Gates Records
Year: 2017
Style: Modern Metal

Art Gates welcomes its probably first Swedish signing, a band presented as "an up-rising, promising sextet recognized not only for their music but also for their sense of fashion and style on and off stage" a reference to the band members' tendency to dress in suites, but that's not a novelty on the scene anymore, probably even the opposite, people might be tired of this by now... Anyway, they look sharp indeed, and that pretty much give you an accurate idea on their music, which is clean and modern as well, although still Metal in its bones. It's that kind of Metal based on a classic skeleton but with a body of synths, effects, breaks, clean melodic vocals (even female vocals at times) intertwined with angry Metalcore-like screams, and a polished, classy production on top of all. It really sounds good, you don't have to be a fan of the genre to enjoy what they do, and maybe that's the best quality of their music, is so open and versatile it will get on a lot of different types of persons' tops. All in all I have to agree with Art Gates about the serious potential of this band, check them out if you're open-minded.
