Easter High: With deep-toned and at times liturgics vocals!

Eastern High - Halo

Hailing from the Øresund harbor of Malmö, Swedish progressive metal quintet Easter Highwas and the band will soon relaese their new album Halo. The Svensson brothers lay the foundation of their highly modern and melodic songwriting, melding a thoughtful progressive sound with the heft and drive of modern Swedish death metal and metalcore. Halo is a punchy and finely produced statement of intent, and there is no way you won’t be compelled by Ola Svensson’s deep-toned and at times liturgics vocals! The track Emperor,

Lyrics:

We let the beast come in

Demons came out of the blue

They dance with the devil and push their agenda through

Their fingers are reaching for you

Scratching the surface and twisting our minds into…

Suffocation where we never will see the light again

Forced to bow for the emperors imperial reign

Rapacity so viciously

You will never bring us prosperity

Insanity is all you breathe

We let the beast come in

Voices are calling for war

We must stand together and fight in the darkest hour

All these shattered dreams becomes destiny

If we don’t prevail we will fall into…

Suffocation where we never will see the light again

Forced to bow for the emperors imperial reign

Rapacity so viciously

You will never bring us prosperity

Insanity is all you breathe

We let the beast come in

Rapacity so viciously

You will never bring us prosperity

Insanity is all you breathe

Suffocation where we never will see the light again

Forced to bow for the emperors imperial reign

Rapacity so viciously

You will never bring us prosperity

Insanity is all you breathe

We let the beast come in

Rapacity so viciously

You will never bring us prosperity

Insanity is all you breathe

We let the beast come in

 Eastern High was founded in the Øresund harbor of Malmö in Sweden, by brothers Ola and Johan Svensson. Both were previously members of local thrash metal fame Wasted Shells, a band revered in the Swedish underground metal scene, which split up in 2015. Eastern High emerged as a new vessel for the brothers’ more progressive approach in songwriting.

Their revered 2017 debut Garden Of Heathens helped the band gather a solid fan base, with lead single Bottled Insanity reaching over 600k Spotify streams and each of their videos resulting in instant appreciation from metal fans across the globe. Ola and Johan then decided to continue further and turn this project into a full-scale band, with Fredrik Rosdahl, Niklas Cvetkovski, and Christian Lindström completing the lineup.

Eastern High played their first live show in the summer of 2019, quickly followed by several gigs and tours… until the pandemic put the world to a halt. The quintet focused on writing and recording their sophomore full-length Halo. 

New album Halo was mixed and produced by Erik Wiss at Tone Tension Productions, mastered by Thomas Johansson at The Panic Room. The artwork was designed by Christian Wallin. It will be issued on vinyl, CD, and digital on July 30th, 2021.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6873 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
