Facedown Records is excited to welcome Onward to Olympas to the family.
Coming up among such North Carolina bands as Between the Buried and Me, Beloved, and He Is Legend gave the members of Onward To Olympas an appreciation for an array of genres. Since their formation in 2008, OTO has meticulously cultivated their sound, blending progressive metal, straight hardcore, and elements of death metal. That the band can indulge all their musical proclivities, yet produce such consistent results, while making it seem easy is a testament to their craftsmanship. Says vocalist/guitarist Justin Gage, “We like the challenge of including all the genres that we most enjoy without making a song sound like it is being performed by three different bands.”
On their new album This World Is Not My Home, recorded with Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, For Today) Onward To Olympas make sure to bring the intensity, effortlessly melding melodic singing with thick metal-core screams, occasionally bringing a little old school back to the table with crisp gang vocals. The album is polished and impressive, and will be available on Facedown Records in January 19 2010.
