On April 18th Unleash The Archers will be holding a video premiere show at The Red Room in Vancouver BC for their second single "General Of The Dark Army". The music video is directed by Richard Olak, creator of the indie cult film 'The Battle Of Burgledorf', and was filmed with the keen cinematographic eye of the infamous Talbot Twins. The song can be found on their 2011 release "Demons Of The AstroWaste", which debuted in the top ten on !Earshots Loud Charts.

This is UTA’s second music video, the first being for their song “Dawn Of Ages”, also on the 2011 album: They filmed the first video themselves with the help of a friend, in the wilderness surrounding Hope, BC. Needless to say, they have taken a slightly more professional approach to their second video, and hope it will meet the expectations of fans. The new video will be posted on their youtube channel shortly after the premiere.

The April 18th show will also serve as the tour kick off for their two week jaunt through western Canada, aptly titled “Quest For The West”, during which they will travel as far as Winnipeg, MB. The new video will be shown prior to their set at every show, providing the venue has the capacity to do so. Show dates are posted below, check out their facebook page for details and more shows as they are confirmed!


Unleash The Archers is a five piece metal band currently hailing out of Vancouver BC. Formed in late 2007, the band is heavily influenced by all metal genres, and incorporates elements of power metal, melodic death metal, thrash and metalcore into their music. Their sophomore album Demons of the Astrowaste was released in May 2011. Since then the band has toured Canada extensively and soon the rest of Northamerica, in order to continue to grow its already strong fan base.


Nylithia is a word and a hyperthrash band created in 2008 by founding members Royce Costa (guitars), Tyler Erhardt (drums), and Kyle Scott (vocals). The word Nylithia was created out of the conceptual idea of a nihilistic utopia, which in itself is contradictory since it is impossible for a nihilist to have a utopia when there is no option for a perfect world within their view. With that in mind, Royce, Kyle, and Tyler set out to create a soundtrack of calamity; a sound which would be uniquely identifiable in its overall tone and unbridled aggression. Soon after the first rehearsal sessions, bassist Nathan Rothstein was added into the fold, and the stage was set to bring the hyperthrash sound to a wider audience.


Over the Coals is a female fronted metal band, based out of Vancouver BC. Currently working on their new EP to show off the new line up, new songs and heavier sound.
