Rising Victorian metal outfit ATLVS are undergoing somewhat of a metamorphosis.
Not that long term fans should throw in their arms in the air in complaint. Quite the contrary.
Their sound has become increasingly heavier since debut EP Memoir, with upcoming single Nazareth set to emphatically announce ATLVS are not here to make up the numbers, they are here to take the world by storm, starting with their home country!
Matt and Nick from the band joined HEAVY to chat about the new single and heavier direction, with Matt offering first opinion.
“Its definitely more into the hardcore route than we have released up to this point. Our last release was Sorrow and that was branching into the sound where we wanna be at. This release is definitely cementing that sound that we wanna be pushing from now on.”
As for the musical direction, Nick chimed in.
“I think in terms of the change it just comes down to different influences in our music styles and evolution as a band as well. At the start, when we wrote our first EP Memoir, we kinda didn’t really know what we wanted at the time. We were literally writing as we were going, and as we grew up playing shows, meeting new bands and listening to new bands and exploring it a bit, and then discovering these new styles we went hey, we’re leaning more towards this now.”
In the full interview, the boy discuss the single in greater detail, including its meaning, the new direction and why it is important to the future of ATLVS, upcoming releases and when to expect them, having the song mixed and produced my members of fellow Aussies Alpha Wolf, future plans and more.
Don’t forget the HEAVY premiere of Nazareth at 11 am EST Wednesday, October 6.
