Devoted UNLEASH THE ARCHERS fans – don't miss this!

Frontwoman Brittney Slayes says:

"We are so excited to hit the stage again! Even though we will just have to imagine all of our loyal fans' smiling faces are behind the cameras, we know we are going to have a blast playing these new songs for everyone. It is also a great chance to enthusiastically support one of our favourite local venues that has been hit really hard by the global pandemic. The Rickshaw is a huge part of the metal community in Vancouver, so we are happy to have a chance to give back to them. We absolutely can't wait to rock out and let the music take us far away from all the darkness in the world right now, and really hope everyone can join us and take a little break from the madness for a while!"

Thematically, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS' new album Abyss is the direct sequel to the band’s 2017 albums Apex. Beginning with an acoustic introduction “Waking Dream” quickly punches into a colossal wall of sound, setting the stage for the auditory escape that is Abyss. The powerful metal-encapsulated title track “Abyss” and metallic pop-tinged ear worm “Through Stars” conjure classic elements while maintaining an entirely fresh, forward-thinking approach. Andrew and Grant turn heads with wicked work on stellar tracks such as “Legacy”, while Slayes showcases her incredible vocal diversity and range on mighty epics like “Return To Me” and “The Wind That Shapes The Land.”Drummer Scott Buchanan makes technical strides on burners “Soulbound” and “Faster Than Light” – setting breakneck twists and turns ablaze with his band mates. UNLEASH THE ARCHERS rounds the edge of Abyss with throwback-hued “Carry The Flame”, and wraps up with the soaring, rewarding concept closer “Afterlife.”

Abyss was once again engineered, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios in Denmark, with production by guitarist Andrew Kingsley. Additionally, unique closer track “Afterlife” features orchestration contributions from Francesco Ferrini of Italian symphonic death metal machine Fleshgod Apocalypse. Fans will notice that, a massive dose of synth in the mix, and for the first time, all tracks were written on seven strings – the album’s sounds as it explores a celestial realm.
