ALBUM REVIEW: SAVIOUR - LET ME LEAVE

SAVIOUR, an Australian melodic hardcore band who are just about to release one hell of an album. It's fresh and it's heavy. 

SAVIOUR_LET_ME_LEAVELet Me Leave is the band's third studio album and will be released on 13th January 2017 with UNFD. I've literally had it on repeat since I received it. Four years since their release of their debut album, First Light To My Death Bed, the band have done nothing but grow and develop after a two year hiatus and a change in band members including the addition of Shontay Snow on soft vocals, taking them to the next level. 

The mix of Shontay's soft and unique vocals and the powerful masculinity of Bryant Best come together to cause a collaboration of some of the most unique and effective sounds in the genre and I think that this is what hit me so hard when I first listened and the reason I haven't stopped and I'm pretty sure you will be hooked too. 

Ahead of the release, Saviour have already shown their capabilities and built up excitement with the first single off the album, Pressure and Composure which showcases all aspects of what to expect from the rest of Let Me Leave. Lyrically, this track will hit everyone as it's all about struggles and pressures in day to day life when you're trying to achieve your dreams.  

Some hardcore albums are heavy throughout but what I like about Let Me Leave is that midway through the album, things slow down a little in The Quiet Calm and The Low In Hello which allows you to sit back, relax and listen before it returns back to it's fast-paced tempo in Wildfire before Little Birds completes the album. My favourite track has to be Like This which reaches all levels of emotions.

Overall, everything gels together to make incredible music from the duel guitars to the different combination of vocals and lyrically relevant. All 10 tracks totally blew me away from the off and fans of this genre really shouldn't miss this flawless album, remember, it comes out this Friday (13th January)! If you're in Australia you can catch them at the UNIFY festival - for those of you in the UK, you'll have your fair share of Saviour soon.

You can preorder the album now along with adding some sweet merch to your basket too with 24Hundred, alternatively you can preorder with iTunes. Check out the video for Pressure and Composure below!
