New Called To Arms album

So I haven't posted in here in awhile. Got married, bought a house, got a real job...but I still found time for my fellow shredder and I to write a new full length for our band. It will be coming out this summer on Tragic Hero Records. We aren't officially promoting the album yet, but I have put up a 5 minute un-mastered teaser on our purevolume account(titled, CTATeaser):

www.purevolume.com/calledtoarms

I figured I would post the link here since one of the guitars I used a lot on this album was an S5470 I fell in love with while reading the S-series thread on this site haha.

We are definitely a metal band but our sound really varies a lot over this album. Has a lot of prog elements and a lot of shredding (at least as best as the other guitarist and I can haha)

Let me know what you think!

(for fans of bands like Cynic, Between the Buried and Me, Opeth, etc.)

Nice, sounds awesome! I remember discovering you guys back in like 04-05, a time before myspace was the place to find bands.

Glad you like it! And especially since you have heard some of our stuff in the past. That time frame makes sense because that was around the time we were most active and promoting ourselves (2003-early 2006ish). Seems like so long ago, but I miss playing all those shows and just being more active as a band then. We came back in 2007 and played shows through 2008 and then we kind of got too busy with other stuff. But writing this album last year was a lot of fun, even if we don't have the time to play out like we used to.

Thanks again for listening; it's awesome to hear from someone who listened to us before the Myspace era.

swing and a miss I guess with other people. I'm assuming the vocals probably turn a lot of people off here haha.

Re: New Called To Arms album

so far, early pre-release reviews of the album have been awesome. Here's one where we got a 4.5/5.

"Peril And The Patient has without a doubt made my list of favorite albums. If you’re looking for exciting, relentless, diverse, and powerful metal then look no further. Called To Arms dishes out a stellar helping of awesome by fusing together a plethora of heavy metal sub-genres, all the while keeping a varied, original and interesting sound." -TNR

Re: New Called To Arms album

well done. I love the riffage but can't handle the vocals.

You don't have plans to release just the riffage, huh?

Re: New Called To Arms album

thanks man! And I can understand about the vocals haha. To answer your question, we actually have thought about releasing the instrumental version of the album via itunes. I'll definitely post in this thread if I get more details on that; seems like kind of a cool thing to do.

Re: New Called To Arms album

That would be awesome. You'd probably get a bunch of wannabe singers singing your songs though and youtubing them... its a way of viral marketing I guess.

Re: New Called To Arms album

We have 4 of the songs from our current album up on the myspace now. Album has been received extremely well so far .

I understand lots of people aren't big on the vocals but hopefully some people still check out the new tunes from a guitar standpoint. And hopefully I can get some instrumental versions of it from the studio soon even.
