Lutharö, from Hamilton, Canada is proud to premeire their music video for their single “Unleash The Beast” via Bravewords.com. The single is the title track off their upcoming EP and is an enticing amalgamation of death metal growling and punchy double kicks accompanied by power metal cleans and fiery guitar solos.
The myriad of dynamic elements and groovy bits make this one powerhouse of a song. Its lyrics follow the familiar situation of someone restraining themselves for too long in fear of judgement or emotional pain; as this goes on they feel an anger grow inside of them until it eventually turns into a full on monster seeking vengeance. The range on the vocals masterfully paint a vivid image of all hell breaking loose.
Further expanding on where Shipperbottom’s lyrics come from:
“The lyrics specifically on this EP were all inspired by emotional experiences in her day to day life with a more morbid twist and added metaphors.”
The band has crafted this EP in the hope their listeners will have a positive and and lasting experience, finding it enjoyable and authentic but also relatable. Giving nods to some of their noticeable influences including Arch Enemy, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Behemoth and Iron Maiden, Lutharö sits imposingly on the border of the death, power and thrash sub-genres.

Born in 2013, Lutharö (Elvish for “the enchanter”) has been refining their sound which is complete with catchy riffs, blazing solos and vocals ranging from vicious growls to cleans that will send a chill down your spine. Starting out as more of a fantasy band, Lutharö has deviated into taking a more intimate path and now explores more relatable concepts.
Victor Bucur (guitar) initially starts the writing process with an idea or a few cool riffs which John Raposo (guitar), Cory Hofin (drums) and Ruslan Lypovsky (bass) add their own ideas to. Krista Shipperbottom (vocals) then adds the lyrics and melodies twisting the songs together into something dark and charismatic. Dominating the stage with an enormous presence, they have so far produced two EPs “Incarnadine” in 2015 and Unleash the Beast in 2018. They have hinted at returning to the studio late 2018 to start work on an anticipated third album.
