Manchester UK-based ORION’s follow-up to their first album, Where Whales go to Die, is finally upon us after a one year wait with their second offering entitled All This World Means, which was released today by their label, Rogue Records America, which signed the band in January 2012.
The five-piece outfit has changed their style just a bit by adding not one, but two vocalists to the band’s power-house signature sound. The hard-hitting screamo-styled pipes of Nathan Hayes mixed with the soft and clean vocals of Tyler Houghton, add an entirely new dynamic to the band’s already hard and progressive sound, introducing complex layers and far more emotion to the music.
The lead-vocal duo additions are sure to please both old and new fans alike as band mates Ryan Robb (guitar), Alex Huzar (rhythm/guitar) Rob Booth (bass) and Nathon McLeish (drums) continue to mature their sound with tracks like ‘Omnes In Pulverem,’ ‘The Lucifer Experiment,’ and ‘Epiphany.’
Known for their high-energy live shows, we are sure that we’ll be seeing ORION all over the U.S. in 2013 either as support for some national acts, on some of the huge festival bills or perhaps even a couple of geographically strategic headlining dates. Stay tuned to RockRevolt because you WILL want to know if they’re coming to your town!
You can find and download All This World Means on Amazon, iTunes, Deezer, CM DISTRO or directly from Rogue Records America that includes a bonus digital booklet on the ORION Bandcamp Page and stream the whole album free!
Physical copies will be available in the U.S. on December 25 , 2012 – just in time for Christmas!
All This World Means contains eight tracks including the first single ‘Epiphany,’ which was featured in a lyric video, released just two days after the single was put out worldwide. Hoping to attract American fans with a tried and true Brit fan favorite, an updated and revised version of ‘Relatively Minor ‘off the first EP was included on the new album as well.
