With a modern metal sound that some say is evocative of Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold, Nova Scotia’s A Call for Submission was poised to expand their reach with the release of their first studio album, Rise or Fall and the guys did just that. Known for their catchy hooks and melodic vocals, the group has been playing since 2009 and continues to maximize their momentum by continuing to work outside the box and explore territories beyond their comfort zone, only bettering them as a band on and off the stage.
The band cites bands like: Metallica, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, As I Lay Dying, Atreyu, Pantera, Megadeth, and KISS among many of their musical influences. These influences are evidenced in the band’s musical evolution across multiple genres. At a show, fans can expect to hear intense original sounds blended with popular new and old rock and roll and heavy metal. You can find a sample of their sounds on the band’s Facebook fanpage, ReverbNation, Soundcloud, MySpace or from their official website at www.acallforsubmission.com
Of A Call for Submission’s sound, guitarist Jesse Harris says, “I believe our music balances on the fine line of heavy and melodic. I see people head banging in the front row, but at the same time singing along with the chorus. It gives you the fist pumping, devil horn bearing energy that people crave in music, and the singable, soaring vocals that keep it stuck in your head for days.”
