+ ISAAK (Heavy Psych Records, Italy)
California’s SAVIOURS continue to forge ahead with towering riffs, colossal rhythm, monumental guitar harmonies and an obsession with the end of times, the occult, psychedelics and the arcane. Still building upon the the foundation that BLACK SABBATH, IRON MAIDEN, THIN LIZZY and MOTORHEAD laid, SAVIOURS enter their second decade in a new partnership with French label LISTENABLE RECORDS, preparing a new album for a fall 2015 release.
Rooted in hardcore punk but preferring to cruise in outer space, the lysergic hessians of SAVIOURS have always brought a ton of swing and swagger to their forward-charging heavy metal. The band melds sounds from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, progressive rock, and proto-doom, and delivers it all with a snarling West Coast hardcore edge. The result is an absolute beast of a sound that is all Saviours’ own.
Since the 2005 release of SAVIOURS’ first EP, Warship, the band has worked relentlessly, touring North America, Europe, and Japan with the likes of MASTODON, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, THE SWORD, HIGH ON FIRE, SAINT VITUS and CLUTCH. In a few short years, SAVIOURS have risen to become stalwarts of the world’s metal scene, ambassadors of an aggressive-yet-stoned West Coast vibe, inspired by the 70’s but totally real and relevant in 2015.
