Distant Shores


Distant Shores are a wonderful metal band from Guernsey who fuse thrash metals raw aggression with modern metal refinement to achieve a sound vaguely reminiscent of bands like Machine Head. They do an especially impressive job of mixing cleans with growls, and while I prefer the growls the cleans do indeed have their place. This is perhaps best seen on the track Cloaked By Shadows. The songwriting on this record is often excellent. I love the melodic guitar lines that underscore so much of the music, it gives a special flavor to the band and really makes them unique. There are not a lot of musicians who can play, or even write this kind of music and then pull it off with such aplomb. If you're looking for a band who bring something fresh to the world of modern metal then you have found your combo. These guys have been crushing skulls since 2011 and I for one am very excited to see what the future holds for these English bone destroyers!
