New Interview with Brittney Slayes of Unleash the Archers!
3/30/2018 by Frank Hill




With a name that evokes medieval imagery and a sense of urgency, Unleash The Archers formed as a band in Victoria, Canada in 2007 and have subsequently been developing a fanbase with the release of four full-lengths and by playing shows throughout the world. The band's fusion of traditional, power, and melodic metal combined with Brittney Slayes' power/traditional lead vocals and harsh, male backing vocals are the staple of their genre-defying brand of music. Their increased global presence and talent led to the band signing with metal label Napalm Records in 2015.

In 2017, UtA released the well-received concept album titled 'Apex'. The album debuted at #3 on iTunes metal charts, and became their first to make Billboard charts. It also debuted at #12 on the Canadian Top Hard Music chart and landed on many Year End favorite album lists. A subsequent tour of Europe with Orden Ogan and Rhapsody of Fire followed.

Maximum Metal had a chance to speak with UtA's phenomenal, four-octave mezzo-soprano lead vocalist Brittney Slayes about a range of metal subjects including an in-depth look into the story narrative within the songs of 'Apex', its music and production, band videos, and some other fun stuff!
