Forgotten Lore: Frontier
An extremely well rounded, warm, and full production allows for the band's prowess in writing and musicianship to shine through. Impossible to compare to any other band, yet pragmatically familiar sounding, Frontier offer a brilliant mixture of ferocity, melody, emotion and energy. Painfully strained vocals, varied and driving match the melodic guitarwork and complex drumbeats, fills, and accents. Beyond all of that, each track transgresses whatever pigeon hole might aim to falter their run and keeps the momentum up and our interest piqued.
As the demo is nearly impossible to get a hold of, the band happily advocates it's download.
Sangre y Tierre and bassist/singer Mark Pechak has gone on to form Desolate Wind.
Be happy to have something, but I wouldn't blame you to be upset at having nothing to look forward to.
