I've been chomping at the bit for Tempest since Countless Skies announced that they had something new for us a few weeks back. For fans of the U.K. based melodic death metal group and their highly addictive debut LP, New Dawn, the first single from their as-of-yet unnamed follow-up feels like a natural evolution for a band that proudly wears their influences on their sleeves. If you've got multiple Insomnium or Be'Lakor records in your stack and aren't listening to Countless Skies, today is a great day to expand your horizons. And with the band taking all funds raised by the sale of this single to help fund their sophomore effort, you can help make that album a reality for the low, low price of whatever you want to spend. Check out Countless Skies' Bandcamp page and give Tempest a spin or two for yourself. The band's on Facebook too, of course, because they're not middle schoolers and don't snaptweetkik every freaking thing that they do. I'm excited for you all to hear this and would love your feedback in the comments section, which is always open. Rage on! JPR
