- Better Angels CeVILAIN 3:36
Laced with grit and sheer determination, CeVILAIN splatters your speakers with their new guitar-driven epic opus titled ‘Better Angels’. This is a sheer guitar attack on the senses, which I love. A stunning mix of prog and hard rock, CeVILAIN give a positive spin to the much-aligned dreariness that usually accompanies this music while preserving the hard edge and subtle discord that is rock. Well done!
CeVILAIN is a hard rock band that clearly stands out for the genre – they craft thunderous pieces that aspire to evoke positivity, unity, acceptance, and inclusion rather than solely expressing simple angst and discord. They channel their creative energies into captivating tracks whose impact is only surpassed by their energetic live performance and their ability to engage their audience.
Inspired by titans of the genre – Breaking Benjamin, Bring Me The Horizon, and Thrice – CeVILAIN is a band that will never be satisfied resting on their laurels. Building upon the success of their first EP – the independently produced and released “RISE” (2018) – the band is already back with brand new material that continues to forge ahead their heavy, melodic and driven sound.
Mixed by Mike Langford (Deadset Society) and mastered by Peter Leitros (Wreckhouse Mastering), the new single “Better Angels” showcases their ability to hammer home searing instrumentation with soaring melody and harmony. This ability is on full display as the vocalization plays off each contributor before coming together in a massive chorus hook.
CeVILAIN was formed in Ottawa, Canada in 2018 and quickly became the go-to, must see the artist in the Nation’s Capital. In short order, their first single – “Hush” – surpassed 10,000+ streams across all platforms and has become a mainstay, and regular request, on rock radio. The band has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with exceptional talent such as: Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace), Bif Naked, Jeff Marti (The Tea Party), One Bad Son, Crown Lands, The Lazys, and Richie Kotzen (Poison, Mr. Big).
2019 looks to be a massive step forward for CeVILAIN as they continue to establish their presence and influence in mainstream rock.
