Progressive metal outfit As A Conceit are streaming their debut full length album Frown Upon Us ahead of its official release tomorrow via Famined Records.
Taking inspiration from bands such as Architects and Northlane, the Progressive metallers deliver a crushing blend of technicality and melody, without losing sight of the message they want to deliver: anger, dismay but at the same time also a sliver of hope for the world we live in. And the timing for such feelings has never been more spot on. For any fan who enjoys technicality, ambiance and gut-wrenching vocals supported by an thundering musical assault, or for anyone who’s enjoyed the latest Architects albums, this is an album that should not be missed out on.
The band elaborate on the whole LP and what the meaning behind it is, how it came together: “Frown Upon Us sings about the struggle of the human nature. We, among the others, try to cope with the absence of reference points, ready to face the nothingness that’s waiting for us on the other side. It’s about oppression, about injustice and coarse reality that nullifies hope. Alternating the heaviness of researched guitar riffs and sharp vocals with punchy gang choruses and drifting interludes we tried to achieve the perfect balance to entertain the listener while sharing our burden under the shape of a clear message: we are all doomed”.
