UNLEASH THE ARCHERS Release Music Video For Track “The Matriarch”!


The definition of matriarch says: “A woman who rules or dominates a family, group, or state; specifically:  a mother who is head and ruler of her family and descendants.”

“The Matriarch” is also the brand new track and music video off of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS’ upcoming album Apex. The album marks the tenth anniversary of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS! These heavy metal heroes are celebrating this honor with an exhilarating feast on their fourth masterpiece – out on June 2nd via Napalm Records!

Brittney Slayes states:
“This track is chapter three in the story, and in it we are introduced to our antagonist “The Matriarch” in all her malevolent glory.  We call this one our “quick banger” because it’s fast, catchy, and fun, and hopefully it won’t take long to learn the words!  It is sung from an omniscient point of view, drawing the listener in with tales of The Matriarch’s depravity.  The best part is the bridge, because the song is so dark, and then it launches into this flowing wraithlike guitar melody that is so memorable, I sing along to it every time and I think the fans will too!  Absolutely can not wait to play this one live  ;)„

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS – First Track & Music Video From Upcoming Album!


Cleanse The Bloodlines is the first track off of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS upcoming album Apex!

This one is really going to get you banging your head!  With chest-thumping bass lines and penetrating guitar melodies, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS newest release compels you to chant with fists raised high in the air “All hail heavy metal!”

Powerful front woman Brittney Slayes states:
“We are beyond stoked to finally debut a track from the new album, and this song was unanimously chosen as the first single by the whole band, no question. It’s a heavy song so we wanted a heavy video, and we think that Richard (Olak, director) did an incredible job of capturing the essence of the album perfectly. It was a brutal two days of filming in zero degree weather, but it was worth it, and we think it turned out well. We filmed with a 6K RED Weapon, one of the best cameras out there right now, and the cinematic quality adds to the dark nature of the lyrical content.  We think our fans are really going to like this one!”

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS Unveil Details Of Upcoming Album!

It has now been 10 years of UNLEASH THE ARCHERS! These heavy metal heroes are celebrating this honor with an exhilarating feast on their upcoming album entitled Apex – out on June 2nd 2017 via Napalm Records!

Channeling the fiery brilliance of shooting stars, there is immense beauty on Apex, and it clutches you with a fervor that lingers well beyond the last cymbal decay.

 

The band states:
“We are extremely excited to release another full on concept album; it’s just so much fun to play out a story when you’re up on stage.  This one has a protagonist that we call ‘The Immortal’ being forced to serve the antagonist, a.k.a. ‘The Matriarch’ as she embarks down a very dark path to achieve immortality.  We had a great time writing this record, and I think the cohesiveness of the story has really shone through in the music as well.  It has a certain vibe throughout, from beginning to end, and we can’t wait to hear what our fans have to say about the direction this album has taken.  We don’t like to write the same record over and over again and we are very happy with the progression of our sound on Apex.  We think it will appeal to all of our fans old and new; it has the best parts of our past albums combined into one with just a little more spit and polish  ;)“

 

 

Ken Sarafin created the picturesque album artwork for Apex. This album takes nerves of steel; from its opener “Awakening” to the title track that closes the album, the listener will partake in a furious adventure, weaving through elements of the strongest metal genres of our time. You’ll be guided by the shimmering heat of sweeping lead guitars, face-melting solos, deafening growls, pummeling bass lines and of course the thrilling hooks of Brittney Slayes’ queen-size voice.
