With a modern metal sound that some say is evocative of Metallica with Iron Maiden style guitar harmonies, Nova Scotiaâs A Call for Submission was poised to expand their reach with the release of their first studio album, Rise or Fall and the guys did just that. Known for their catchy hooks and melodic vocals, the group has been playing since 2009 and continues to maximize their momentum by continuing to work outside the box and explore territories beyond their comfort zone, only bettering them as a band on and off the stage.
The band cites bands like: Metallica, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold and many more among many of their musical influences. These influences are evidenced in the bandâs musical evolution across multiple genres. At a show, fans can expect to hear intense original sounds blended with popular new and old rock and roll and heavy metal. You can find a sample of their sounds on the bandâs Facebook fanpage, ReverbNation, Soundcloud, MySpace, CD Baby, Itunes or from their official website at www.acallforsubmission.com
Of A Call for Submissionâs sound, the band says , âWe believe our music balances on the fine line of heavy and melodic. We see people head banging in the front row, but at the same time singing along with the chorus. It gives you the fist pumping, devil horn bearing energy that people crave in music, and the singable, soaring vocals that keep it stuck in your head for days.â
A Call for Submission plays events and venues across the Maritimes and beyond with the promotional assistance of their Manager Jessica Brewster of Fusion Entertainment Co. who hosted and promoted Two "Rise or Fall" release parties at Michaels Bar & Grill in Halifax, Nova Scotia (May 17, 2013) and West Side Charlies in New Minas, Nova Scotia (June 8, 2013). In 2013 the guys played Riverfest- Rock the Bush 2013 with the Denmark Productions Halifax-Plugged In 2012 line-up. Then their original tune "Walking Saviour" won them 2 spots at "Festival et Macadam" in Quebec City in September 2013;one to open for Pennywise and one to play after NOFX. They were also 1 of 3 Maritime rock bands to be chosen to play the New Glasgow Jubilee Winter Rock Show 2013.
They have now completed a tour of Eastern Canada in August 2014 and released their 2nd album & 1st full length album "Our Silence" in which they celebrated 2 release shows both in Halifax and their hometown. The guys have really raised the bar with their new material and are excited for the response from fans and look forward to gaining many more. They have taken their music to new levels and have stepped outside their comfort zones bettering them as musicians . Stay tuned for what the future brings for this band as they are on the rise and plan to make 2014 even better!
