‘THE FALL’ – Available as a free download.
A ferocious, no-holds-barred blast of melodic metal, ‘The Fall’ is the first taste of what’s to come from brand new London 5-piece metal stars, As Lions. Available to download for free, this debut track is a four-to-the-floor foot stomper, with crushing riffs, and the signature vocals of Austin Dickinson, tackling themes of desperation and determination with the lyrics – “did you live or die on your last day” and “I will survive another day”. The 5-piece marry heavy, melodic, epic and insanely catchy, concocting an absolute beast of a debut single.
Fresh from the ashes of Rise To Remain and other previous projects, Brit metallers As Lions feature Austin Dickinson (Vocals), Conor O’Keefe (Guitar), Will Homer (Guitar), Stefan Whiting (Bass) and Dave Fee (Drums). Lead singer Austin Dickinson says: “’The Fall’ is a song seething with an energy and determination that I have never felt before. Coming off the back of our former projects, it would be far too easy to release something that ‘treads the water’. We wanted this one out there first because it has that crucial diversity that sets us apart, but at its heart has the anthemic core and the fleshed out heaviness that made me want to make music in the first place. It’s a direct, impassioned and honest statement of intent for our future. 2015 is the year that UK Rock breaks down even more walls, and we are here to help light that fuse.“
With an EP due out in Spring, and also a potential debut album to be released this year, the UK has a new beast on its hands. As Lions have arrived.
