“After a seemingly endless pile of crappy hardcore and deathcore bands, I was completely overjoyed when I finally found these guys. They play technical-melodic metal and they sound like what I imagine you might get if Veil Of Maya and Misery Signals had a baby. That’s a very good thing.”- Heavy Blog Is Heavy
Los Angeles, CA – BlkHeart Group have released a new EP titled “Earth” by Elitist. The band initially wowed progressive and heavy music fans with their debut EP “Caves” in 2010. Now the band has returned with a lethal batch of their technical and melodic DJent metal that is both shredding and epic. A lyric video for the new song Specter is on the band’s facebook page (link below) and demonstrates what guitarist Julian Rodriguez says of the new EP being “more aggressive but yet more rounded than Caves.”
A key element of the band’s attack is Rodriguez and Sean Hall’s dual guitar wizardry. Music geeks will even be more impressed with the knowledge that both guitarists received musical training from AJ Minette of The Human Abstract. Minette impressed with what Elitist was doing was integral in introducing the band to the music industry including the Blk Heart Group who now manage the group. Minette was even going to take the band on it’s first national tour this past spring on The Human Abstract’s headlining tour which unfortunately had to be cancelled.
Elistist formed in December 2010 when Rodriguez and original vocalist Jacob were trying to re-start their previous band Another Day In Vain and recruited Hall and original drummer Robert from another previous Rodriguez project The Fortune Teller as well as bassist Mike Danese. The group decided to create a whole new sound which Rodriguez says is “a balance in our music that will appease both musicians and non-musicians with smart songwriting and a main lyrical theme of having strength to keep pushing forward.” A progressive viewpoint as well as a progressive sound as it were.
