Yesterday's Saints Releasing Beer

Fair Winds Brewing Co. has brewed "Seas of Annihilation," a crisp and refreshing black kolsch for Yesterday's Saints.

Brewer Will Cook (previously featured in Decibel Magazine) created the recipe alongside Yesterday's Saints. The beer is dark as the night sky and has a touch of smoke from the embers of hell.

At 5.1% (a sad amount of alcohol for a beer if you ask this writer) you can drink it all day in the summer sun and it'll keep you cool. "Seas of Annihilation" will be available at Fair Winds Brewery in an exclusive release on August 1st in the Fair Winds Tap Room at 7000 Newington Rd., Lorton, VA.

In addition to the beer release party, Yesterday's Saints has lined up a handful of shows for August and an additional show in October. Included in this run are headline shows, dates with Battlecross, IKILLYA and Arkona. A complete list of dates can be found below. More...

Exclusive

Yesterday's Saints Streams "Generation Of Vipers"

Concept albums are not new territory in metal by any means. But Northern Virginia's Yesterday's Saints elevate the notion of conceptual metal to a whole other level, thanks to the rich, extensive storytelling and the pummeling metal in "Generation of Vipers." The music is as smart and thought provoking as it is extreme, that's not an easy thing to do. Striking an artful balance is difficult, but Yesterday's Saints make it seem easy.

The current iteration of Yesterday's Saints, who play death-thrash-power combo, has been in existence since summer 2010 and with a self-released EP and some local touring under their belt. They knew that a full concept album was the next step they wanted to take. But they did not go about it capriciously. The decision to go with a concept for the 11-track "Generation of Vipers" was driven by the most important things —the songwriting and careful thought.

The album is assembled like an opera, with three acts, along with an instrumental interlude and outro. It traces the story of Satan, one of the most notorious characters in history, throughout time, from his desire to usurp God's throne to his modern infiltration of mankind to the indication that all of Earth's inhabitants are now his descendants.

The album opens with a flashback and what corresponds chronologically to a third song is actually listed as the first track. The story then resumes from its chronological beginning with the second track. The final song alludes to two theories of the universe: One that asserts we are all a figment of a man's dream, along with the multi-dimensional membrane theory, where the Big Bang Theory was/will be the result of an intersection or collision between our current dimensional membrane and a parallel one.

As a result of either theory, whether "the man" waking up or the collision between dimensional membranes, the end of days is the outcome. Time is then reset again by the man falling asleep again or the explosion of another Big Bang.

The album is out via Draconum Records next week - February 3rd, 2015. Check out our review for the album at this location. Metal Underground.com is proud to present an exclusive stream of the entire album here for you now. So sit back, enjoy and let us know what you think about the debut of one of the more exciting acts to break out the U.S. in some time: More...
