The band’s first single is tight and polished metalcore inspired number with amazing female clean vocals and dark lyrics detailing an awry and toxic relationship.
Lead singer, Kiarely vocals will be the first thing that catches the listeners attention. Her crystalline voice is imbued with deep emotion and doesn’t just stand out in the mix, but soars to great heights. Screamer Suzie’s vocals will likely be the second thing the listener focuses on. Her angry and distressed growls provide the fury and heaviness for the band, and play contrast to Kiarely’s clean’s. Instrumentally, the song is basic, but the guitars and bass fulfill their roles. Tamara’s drumming is the instrumental highlight of the track. Her quick drum fills are spot on and her double bass drumming is awesome.
Original it is not, but for a single, Eyes Wide Shut is more than good song and showcases the talent that is clearly just the tip of the iceberg of what these girls hold.
Now let’s meet Conquer Divide.
This all new female metal band describe themselves as girls with a passion for music. The group has released one single, Eyes Wide Shut, and while it is one single song, it provides a very positive indication for the future of the band and has been garnering the band new fans every day. The girl’s passion for music certainly comes across in what the band has shared with the fans so far. For one they have worked and are working with prestigious metalcore maestro, Joey Sturgis. The few videos of the band working with the producer on youtube provide an inside look at the band recording several songs and was at a time, the only exposure the band had.
Getting to work with Joey Sturgis is in itself impressive and a dream many bands have, but there’s more to the girls than simply having a well regarded and in demand producer. According to the band, they spent a year auditioning members from all across the country to find the perfect match for their band. This is a clear indication the band has a high level of quality they want to achieve and maintain. A standard that will set them apart from the rest of the pack and have huge payoffs for them in the future.
In a relatively short amount of time, the band has gone from a small and mysterious band on facebook, to a band picking up steam and recognition in the scene. In the last few months they’ve released their first single on itunes, put out a lyric video, picked up spots in magazines, released their first wave of band merch and have been promoted by the likes of Bryan Stars. All of these things may have been in the works months in advance, but is further proof of the bands passion, determination and hustle.
It’s hard to predict the future of any band, but from what Conquer Divide has showed so far, they have very promising future and are ready to explode onto the scene. Be sure to follow the band on their facebook, and buy their music and merch.
