With a modern metal sound that some say is evocative of Metallica with Avenged Sevenfold style guitar harmonies, Nova Scotia’s A Call for Submission was poised to expand their reach with the release of their first studio album, Rise or Fall and the guys did just that. Known for their catchy hooks and melodic vocals, the group has been playing since 2009 and continues to maximize their momentum by continuing to work outside the box, only bettering them as a band on and off the stage.
The band cites it's influences from bands like: Metallica, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold and many more. These influences are evidenced in the band’s musical evolution across multiple genres. At a show, fans can expect to hear intense original sounds blended with popular new and old rock and roll with a modern metal touch. You can find a sample of their sounds on the band’s Facebook fanpage, ReverbNation, Soundcloud, YouTube, MySpace, CD Baby, Itunes or from their official website at www.acallforsubmission.com
Of A Call for Submission’s sound, the band says , “We believe our music balances on the fine line of heavy and melodic. We see people head banging in the front row, but at the same time singing along with the chorus. It gives you the fist pumping, devil horn bearing energy that people crave in music, and the singable, soaring vocals that keep it stuck in your head for days.”
A Call for Submission plays events and venues across the Maritimes and beyond with the promotional assistance of their Manager Jessica Brewster of Fusion Entertainment Co. who hosted and promoted Two release parties for their debut EP "Rise or Fall" (May 17, 2013 & June 8, 2013) as well as 2 release parties for their 1st full length album :Our Silence" (both in June 2014). In 2012 the guys closed Riverfest- Rock the Bush and played again in 2013 with the Denmark Productions Halifax-Plugged In 2012 line-up then played a full slot in 2014. Their original tune off of their debut EP "Walking Saviour" won them 2 spots at "Festival et Macadam" in Quebec City in September 2013;one to open for Pennywise and one to play after NOFX. They were also 1 of 3 Maritime rock bands chosen to play the New Glasgow Jubilee Winter Rock Show 2013.
They have now completed a tour of Eastern Canada and are right back at it writing for a new EP expected to be released by June 2015. The guys have really raised the bar with their new material and are excited for the response from fans and look forward to gaining many more. They have taken their music to new levels and are exploring new ways to create an original sound . Stay tuned for what the future brings for this band as they are on the rise and plan to make the future even better!
