Plagues of the Armada

Plagues of the Armada is an interesting djentcore band with a sound that is hard to get into, yet extremely rewarding once you accept it into your heart. With cathartic solos and epic sweeping passages this is a band who will sweep you off your feet and 'dazzle you with djent'. Their music is shockingly heavy and uses strange rhythms and melodies that seem specifically made to make the listener uncomfortable. Their is a great deathcore and even groove metal influence here too, it gives the music a bit of a more accessible vibe and tempers the super technical elements of the groups sound. Also important to note is the bands motto "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who believe they are free" which asides from being pretty much true, dictates the overall philosophy of the lyrics. With lines like "An Omnipotent being with celestial like ascendancy, the deceiver keeping mankind in a veil of obfuscation continuing to propagate the conception that it is our pro-creator" you get a feel for the hyper intelligent lines that permeate this bands music. A stellar act who seem ready to make it to the stars I can't wait to see what they produce next!
