Progressive Extreme Metal Band ‘The Beckoning’ Reveals Artwork for “The Desolation of War”


Nosral Recordings has compiled The Beckoning‘s “Desolate” EP (2014) and “War” demo (2012), remastered the tracks and will be releasing it as one release. The tracks have been remastered by Luke Dinan (Children of Wrath) and will be released December 29, 2017. Check out the artwork for “The Desolation of War” below.

Progressive extreme metal band The Beckoning is hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that fuses the aggression of Extreme Metal with the majestic ambience of Gothic music and the eccentricity and odd song structures of progressive Rock/Metal. Founded by Meghann and Roy Turple and joined together with guitarist/bassist Eldon Loewen, the trio combine their influences together in a songwriting formula that is both unorthodox and organic.

Originally started as a Gothic/Doom Metal band “The Beckoning” has evolved into a more progressive unit, leaving behind the more straight ahead approach that was heard on their earlier releases. Merging influences from 70’s Prog Rock such as Rush,Pink Floyd and early Genesis with a myriad of Extreme Metal bands and Goth Rock/Metal acts such as Saviour Machine and Virgin Black, the trio feel like they have found their stride with a sound that most adequately expresses their musical aspirations.

Sofar they have released: “Bloodlet” [demo] 2010, “Demystifying The Oracle” (full length, 2011) , “War”(demo, 2012), “Desolate” (demo, 2014).

The band consists of: Roy Turple – Drums/Lead Vocals, Meghann Turple – Keys/Piano/Vocals, Eldon Loewen – Guitar/Bass.
