Armed with progressive anthems and songs propelled by a sense of utter urgency, Forevermore, who are newly signed to Solid State Records, are on a focused, metallic mission.

The individual members of Forevermore may be familiar to fans of Christian metal. Vocalist Kramer Lowe did time in Onward to Olympas, while guitarists Alex Smith and Jared Storm were members of The Onset prior to Forevermore. Bassist Michael Taylor played guitar in Wings of Martyr. While the members cut their teeth in other projects, Forevermore has proven to be the outlet for which they were destined.

"None of our old bands were great, but I feel like we have been able to combine some of the best elements of each of our old bands into the Forevermore sound," Storm muses.

That "Forevermore sound" he speaks of is guitar-driven -- a post-metalcore style played with surgical precision. Telos, the band's upcoming record and label debut, offers up thinking man's metal that will also satisfy the simpler urges of the headbanger that prefers a visceral and physical listening experience.

"The whole philosophy and the writing mentality for this band is to attempt to create music which strikes a balance between being interesting and enjoyable," Storm says, breaking their collective approach down to its base parts. "We want our songs to have enough creative elements to intrigue more analytical listeners while retaining enough intensity, feel and melody to appeal to a wider, more casual audience. Most of our favorite metal bands have been ones which have managed to incorporate both sides of this equation to a high degree, and our goal is to try to achieve this balance through a unique combination of elements from various metal subgenres."

"Telos" is Greek for end, purpose or goal. "The album attempts to draw the listener's attention towards things that are of greatest importance, and to challenge them to consider one's life in light of its ultimate goal or purpose," Storm explains. "On a deeper level, it raises the question of whether one's life does indeed have any ultimate purpose or significance; a question for which the answer is largely dependent on one's fundamental worldview or beliefs about ultimate reality. The concept that the word 'Telos' encapsulates should prompt us to consider the implications that our fundamental worldview has on these questions about life's ultimate purpose, and to reflect on how they should influence the way we live our lives."

The song "Force Fed" was a bit of an experiment that forced Storm out of his songwriting comfort zone.
"In the past I have always written using a program called TabIt, which allows you to tab out and playback compositions in MIDI," he explains. "But during the writing process for this album, I began to demo out some ideas with real instruments to get a better idea of how the final product would actually sound. 'Force Fed' was the first song that I've written solely by recording the ideas as I write them rather than putting them into TabIt. This method has its pros and cons, but the main benefit is that it reduces the problem that comes from trying to imagine how songs written in MIDI will actually end up sounding with real instruments."
Something You Whisper
Something You Whisper is showing they have what it takes to become an iconic band in the post-hardcore scene. Recently dropping their new EP "From The Other Side", a strong Canadian tour history, and the cultivation of an American fan base, SYW seem destined for the next step.

The Cambridge, Ontario-based band began to take shape in early 2011; harnessing the talent of Wes Will (vocals), Tom McArthur (drums), Kyle Adshade (guitar/vocals), Austin Palladini (guitar/vocals), and Brian Shepherd (bass/vocals). The quintet defines themselves in their songs and performances, emanating an intense energy that masterfully blends with catchy hooks and choruses. This was exemplified in the bands debut EP, "Nostalgia", with the help of producer Jordan Valeriote (Silverstein, Structures, and Dead and Divine) at Sundown Studios. In February 2013 the band re-issued "Nostalgia", including two songs previously unavailable and their brand new track "20/20 in the 3rd."

Something You Whisper has toured extensively in support of their music, in 2012 alone performing 125 shows across Canada as an unsigned artist. They have shared the stage with acts like Sleeping With Sirens, We Came As Romans, Like Moths to Flames, Set It Off, Ice Nine Kills, Abandon All Ships, and The Word Alive. In 2013 SYW embarked on another Canadian tour, playing strong festival dates including select dates with Silverstein and The Wonder Years. The bands epic live show has won thousands of fans over as well as a slot on their local Warped Tour date in the summer of 2012.

In 2013 SYW travelled to Detroit to work with Brent Allen and Devin Oliver of I See Stars. While there they honed their musicianship and song writing skills, which can be seen in their latest singles: "Who I've Become", and "Anti-Conscience." The tracks on their new release, "From The Other Side" were mastered by Joey Sturgis and recorded by Doug Meadows and has garnered the band their highest recognition yet. Since the EP's release, SYW has reached goals, and gained a better understanding of who they are as musicians, and who they will become in the future.
