Progressive Metal/Deathcore band Spades and Blades have released a music video for ‘Salvation’. The song comes off their forthcoming album “The End Is Near”, which will be released, if all goes well this month. The video can be seen below.
In an recent interview with frontman Jason, he said: “The album is based on The Book of Revelation and John of Patmos’ perspective/spiritual journey while being isolated there, along with our own interpretation of how he was feeling and how his message should be communicated to our audience. There are a lot of lyrical messages that serve as breakdown chants like “You will know The End Is Near when Hell on Earth is Here”, or “We were meant to live divine, We were meant to live to die”, and “You’ll need more than a Crucifix to save you from 666.”” Read the entire interview with Jason here.
Spades and Blades formed in 2006 by founding members Jason Todd, Josiah Wiswell & Justin Bullock. They had been playing as a Street Punk band called The Havoc since 2001, but decided to change their name and sound to persue a career in the metal community. They released their debut album in the winter of 2010 and shortly thereafter, they parted ways with drummer and bassist.Being replaced by TJ Stiles on Drums and Garrett Rizzi on bass, our current lineup was finalized. In October 2012 they released the first single off their upcoming album “The End Is Near”, entitled “Isolation.” Estimated release for “The End Is Near” is September 2013.
