Atreyu will be releasing their first album in six years on September 18! Their wonderful press person was kind enough to send us an advanced copy of Long Live and it may have been six years, but Atreyu remains the same.
Their classic, unique metal sound has returned! The title track, "Long Live" almost instantly proves that and every track holds that familar sound fans have always known and loved.
Different messages can be heard through the album, but several do have words of strength for listeners. Such as, "Somehow we'll make it through the pain", in Long Live, and "There is more to this life" in "Heartbeats And Flatlines." Some tracks may even get you to stop and think about your life, and what you are capable of in your life.
We personally think its one hell of a comeback and that several of the tracks were pretty much made for live performances. Those include "Do You Know Who You Are" and "Cut Off The Head." Its best not to risk giving too much away, but we can say Atreyu is back in action, and they're onto great things.
Don't forget Long Live comes back comes out officially on September 18! Pre-order it now while you still can!
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
