Initiation (Orange Vinyl)


1. SINGLE - ENCrowned by expert, airtight vocal domination from frontwoman Skye "Sever" Sweetnam, "Bystander" owns the listener with its aggressive, fast-paced attack of low, grooving metal riffage, relentless, erratic drums and slinking electronic accents. Tied together with a gritty hook, the track cements what "Cycos" can expect from the heavier side of Initiation.2. SINGLE - ENSauntering, forceful and haunting, "No Surrender" track shines as a prime pick on Initiation. The anthem fills the room with a pointed vocal attack and chugging lead riff of the heaviest metal, underlined by creeping electronic murmurs, seamlessly blending several more under-the-radar genre influences ranging from industrial to world while never losing its primary hard rock flavor.3. SINGLE - ENPurely electrifying and in-your-face throughout, "Vertigo", unlike its title suggests, is nothing but balanced - connecting like a sucker punch as soon as its electro-laced intro breaks into the first verse. Featuring the production mastery of Juno Award-winning producer Kane Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, In This Moment, Papa Roach), the anthem stands tall with its airtight, gritty pop rock sensibility.4. SINGLE - ENAs unpredictable and infectiously manic as the news itself, "Bad News" is a rollercoaster of charging, metallic rock riffage, jolting rhythms and catchy, sing a-long vocal lines. Poised as one of the most eclectic offerings on Initiation, lyrically, the timely track careens the listener down a road all too universally familiar - exploring tensions and eventual emotional explosions ignited by the cycle of never-ending bad news that has seemingly saturated the world.
