Now here's a band I haven't heard of in a little while. In fact, this was among the first few bands we discovered during the inception of The Circle Pit.
From Tacoma, Washington Stealing Axion have been working hard since 2010 to create a fresher link between brutality and melody. They succeeded in this when they released demos naturally combining intricate progressive metal with elements of death metal and fusion. Their first full length album "Moments" was released a little over two years ago through Century Media and InsideOut Music. It was certainly a great introduction.
Now, the band is aiming to make a return through their sophomore effort, "Aeons". The first musical evidence of this has just hit the world with the track "Lost Awakening". You can give it a listen through the Bandcamp player below. It will officially be released next week on October 14th.
