After their critically acclaimed debut album Look and Behold (2011) and follow-up Monstrorum Historia (2013), the metallers of Lo!, hailing from Sydney, Australia, are back with a new EP: The Tongueless.
2014 was a big year for Lo! In Australia: the band supported Trivium, In Flames, Corrosion Of Conformity and Torche, to name a few. Besides the massive live presence on their continent, Lo started working on new material, immediately after the departure of former vocalist Jamie-Leigh Smith in late 2013.
”Stylistically I aimed for a harsher, more venomous tone as Lo!'s voice”, says new vocalist Sam Dillon. “Lyrically I was looking towards themes of extinction and mankind's extreme ignorance towards creatures. The track 'Orca' was inspired by the 'Blackfish' documentary highlighting the history of killer whales in captivity.”
Check out 'Orca' below.
