Canadian metallers ALL ELSE FAILS unleashed their new album ‘The False Sanctuary’ this past December. Keeping with their tradition of crushingly heavy and progressive metal, the album features 2 new songs along with 5 B-sides that were never released digitally from their critically-acclaimed 2016 full length ‘The Forever Lie’.
To follow the band’s music video for their track ‘A Dream of Names’, ALL ELSE FAILS has put together a band playthrough for the release’s lead single. The playthrough showcases the band’s technical guitar parts against melodic vocals and thought provoking lyrics that address the current state of the world.
Watch ‘A Dream of Names’ band playthrough below.
Vocalist/guitarist Barrett Klesko adds:
“In a lot of ways this album is at a state of the union address. It’s been 2 years since the release of The Forever Lie, and already the themes of financial corruption, abuse of religious power, and political scandal seem tame. I wrote this one half with a sarcastic smirk, half with a crippling sense that we are well past the point of return.”
‘The False Sanctuary’ is available on Bandcamp (pay what you want), along with stream and download on Spotify, iTunes, and all major online retailers.
