Formed in 2003, Your Last Wish is a death metal band with thrash metal overtones, melodic yet aggressive, which should appeal to fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, Hatesphere and Darkest Hour. Hailing from Montreal, Canada the group has encapsulated a wide variety of influences to produce a sound that is haunting and harsh, delicate and disciplined.
Using 8 strings guitars, the band has even more possibilities to achieve the desired sound of frantic riffs and evil vocals. You Last Wish has intrigued and entertained audiences across the region, appearing at festivals including Grind Your Mind Open Air and sharing the stage with bands such as Kalmah, Beyond Creation and Archspire.
Eight years after their sophomore album 2012’s “Desolation”, Montreal, QC melodic death metallers Your Last Wish is back in full force with a new darker and heavier sound with their third studio release 2020’s “Eradicate”. The concept album beautifully exploits post apocalyptic themes. The album was composed and recorded entirely by guitarist David Gagné, while all lyrics were written by vocalist Roxana Bouchard. More than half the songs on this bilingual album are in French. Track ‘Pandore’ features a guest appearance by Beyond Creation’s Simon Girard.
With their new lineup of experienced and talented musicians, Your Last Wish is ready to conquer the world with their new album!
Track by track explanation:
– Eradicate: Thrashy melodic death metal madness. It’s the most straightforward song of the album. It was made to be a single.
– Exile: Oldschool thrash influences, also introduces odd-time signatures.
– Monarque: One of our four songs in French, long instrumental passages and probably the most progressive song of the album.
– Décimé: It has a strong middle-eastern / tribal vibe and oldschool death metal riffs.
– Lost: Groovy, mid-tempo and orientally ambient soundscape to bang your head to.
– Pursuit: A clash of modern and oldschool death metal, all in one package!
– Pandore: Tribal prog duet with Simon Girard from Beyond Creation. Musically unleashes the apocalypse.
– Prestige: Originally written by Jean-François Gagné, very reminiscent of the previous album “Desolation” (2012).
– Le cri du monde: Thrashy beginning leading into an epic, cinematic conclusion to the whole album.
