Unleash The Archers is a five piece metal band currently hailing out of Vancouver BC. Formed in late 2007, the band is heavily influenced by all metal genres, and incorporates elements of power metal, melodic death metal, thrash and metalcore into their music. They have worked dilligently over the last three years to create a niche for themselves in the west coast metal scene, as well as build a fan base in the prairies and eastern Canada. Being fronted by a female singer adds to their distinctive sound, and their energy on and off stage captivates listeners of all musical tastes. Their professionalism has been honed by several western Canadian tours as well as three cross Canada tours, and they've gained great experience through sharing the stage with big names like Kataklysm, Dismember, Toxic Holocaust, 3 Inches of Blood, Augury and Stratovarius.
In May 2011 their sophomore album titled 'Demons Of The AstroWaste' was released, and a cross Canada tour followed. This would be their longest tour yet, with 40+ dates ranging from Victoria BC to Halifax NS. The album is a concept piece detailing the exploits of a mercenary as he is taken over by an all-powerful sword. Guitars and bass were recorded at Harbourside studios by Nick Engwer, drums were recorded at Vogville Studios by Nick Engwer, and vocals were recorded at The Hive Soundlab with Stu McKillop of Rain City Recorders. Once again artwork was completed by JP Fournier.
In August 2009 Unleash The Archers released their first full studio album titled 'Behold The Devastation', recorded by Jason Martin of OmegaMediaCore Studios in Richmond BC. The album features artwork by JP Fournier (Blind Guardian, Immortal, Dragonforce, Edguy, etc;) and is comprised of eight gripping tracks, all written over their first two years as a band.
Future plans for the band include a tour of the US in Spring 2012, a second music video for another track from DotAW, and the printing of a detailed novel telling the full story of the album.
