As people across the northern hemisphere brace for winter, Canada’s Exes For Eyes are releasing a new single, the aptly named “The End Of Summer”. This will be the first music released from the band since 2019, and they are eager to get back into the ears of fans. Featuring Björn Strid of Soilwork, the idea behind the single was to question our integrity as a species. “Do we as western humans have the ability to toughen up? Or are we basically just fucked on a biblical scale?” Exes For Eyes continue to explain the track:

“It can be heavy, it can be subdued, it has tension and release, and a few good old-fashioned earworms. Having Björn onboard has only solidified that this is a song with something special. When we sent him the pre-production, he instantly knew this was a song that had substance. “Your best work” he called it. It has the ability to uplift you to euphoria, and the bottom will instantly drop out, leaving you wondering what exactly happened and looking for a repeat play.”

Essentially a metaphor for the amazing quality of life we take for granted, the song explores the notion that without facing true adversity in life, we are becoming soft and approaching the end of that golden era. This single is the first of four, which will make up an internet fourth release, due to the global situation, the band is taking the time to perfect this next offering and give it the revel it deserves when the time is right. 

Exes For Eyes has been going for almost ten years, during which they released three albums, toured heavily, and shared the stage with an impressive list of metal titans. They have a level of cohesion that only comes with that much experience. 

Melodic, with plenty of low-end grooves, Exes For Eyes is recommended for fans of Lamb of God, Slipknot, Soilwork.The music video for “The End of Summer” ft. Björn Strid of Soilwork can be seen and heard via its premiere onTheCirclePit YouTube channel

About:
EXES FOR EYES is a project born of an overwhelming amount of mutual respect and admiration between two men. A respect for one another’s work ethic, musical proficiency, stylistic taste and of course, for each other as people. The concept of blindness, be it willing, involuntary, inherent or otherwise is so foreign and far removed from anything within the realm of experience for these men.

However as the process has begun to create this music, it has become apparent how limited one’s own vision can be when staring at the broad side of limitless potential and ambition. With the musical vision of Dave Sheldon (ex-Annihilator, Man With Target) and the lyrical conception of vocalist and frontman Big James (Endast, Authors) the project is very quickly taking shape into something more than either anticipated. The hope is to see the world of metal in a new light, with EXES FOR EYES.

The Nordic country boasts a thriving extreme music Swedish metal onto the world with the “thrash n’ roll”  band LEACH with catchy riffs as well as the pounding drums and wailing solo.

LEACH has established a style and a sound that makes them stand out from the crowd with their own blend of thrash, hardcore, metal, punk and even a bit of traditional rock and roll, the sound is visceral and pumped full of energy just waiting to take out a wall close to you!

If it’s burly, melodic, and fits together perfectly, it’s probably from Sweden. LEACH certainly are, and their warts-and-all style of thrash-n’-roll is just begging for a throwdown.

“Lovely light of Life” is their third major rodeo, and straight out the gate, a mission statement of thrash, hardcore and rock’n’roll. “Carry the stigma” knows how to get the pit started, and it’s pedal to the metal until the last track. “Sweet Blasphemy” thunders through its chugging grooves relentlessly, while “Trench Walk” is an anthemic riff-out carved from the foundation of rock itself.  

To top it off, the production is the right level of crisp and rough-n’-ready – a tip to the skills of Christian Silver at Studiomega (Arch Enemy, Kreator, Soilwork, Dragonforce).

When coming from such a rich scene as Sweden (Borås), a band cannot help but take some influence from their forefathers – in this case, the insistent energy of a Raised Fist, the rock n’ roll parts of a latter-day Entombed, and the infectious melodies of The Haunted. But it’s not all Svenska – the US gets a look in, with Hatebreed’s snarling bravado, and the thrash-fest of Exodus and Nuclear Assault.All of these influences have been distilled into a potent concoction that is instantly recognizable and wholly theirs.

LEACH are a band built for the stage – that much is clear. And with live experiences that stretches through Europe and as far as Dubai – their frantic energy has been proven. But there’s more than enough replay value in “Lovely light of Life” if a bedroom mosh is in order. Invite some friends, throw the windows up, and let the music fly.
