Album Overview

  • Formed in 2014, Harbinger is their 3rd full release

  • The new album takes a shift to more atypical tunings and arrangements

  • Dark, gritty, ecentuating despair and pain throughout

  • Shared vocal time makes for an interesting take

  • Harbinger’s theme - “growing fear that new technology and crisis would bring our society closer towards authoritarianism. The album title Harbinger is a reference to the omens these internal struggles imply for the future of human society.”


Track by Track Breakdown:

1. Initiation (3:39)

Psychedelic opener. Sets the cadence for a very overcast landscape. We get a little taste for Lauren and Ryan interplay at end.

2. Skin of Your Teeth (3:05)

Gritty industrial feel as the title suggests. Nasty video accompanies this one.

3. False Prophets (2:34)

Uptempo higher range swirling fret work. Lauren engulfs the essence of despair.

4. Convenient Drowning (1:40)

Pummeling percussion with some wild tempo shifts. Ryan’s vocals dominate here.

5. Pendulum (2:39) Standout Track

Bellowing creeping undercurrent. 2:10 mark hits some of the best fretwork on the album.

6. Dystopia for Dessert (3:31)

Lauren brings us home. Great contrast on this one. They bring things down exceptionally.
