Out Now! KOLONY Unleash Debut Album ‘Sledge’ + Post Video ‘The Making of Sledge’
L-R – Antony: Drum | Myk: Bass, Back Vocals | Maxxx: Lead Guitar, Back Vocals | Reno: Vocals, Rythm Guitar
Best described as crafting melodic rock metal, Montreal, QC’s KOLONY believes in doing things a little differently. Boldly combining elements of old school metal, NWOBHM, modern metal and rock, the band loves fast tempos, melodic vocals and all-around high-octane music with each track coming from the heart and reflecting the way its members think about the world. Setting out to write a full-length debut album at the start of 2013, KOLONY has arrived at its latest record, ‘Sledge’, an 11 track power adventure produced by Jef Fortin and the band that they are proud to unleash to the masses today, November 14, 2014.
“Here we are, finally after almost 2 years of hard work, we are thrilled to share with you our latest record Sledge! We have had many good moments while recording this album and yet many more are to come. So turn up the volume knob and let’s celebrate rock/metal together! To our fans, thank you very much because without you, all of this would not be possible. Rock on!!” comments vocalist / guitarist Reno Benoit.
The album is now streaming and available for purchase at the band’s bandcamp here.
