Metallers Prisoner

High-energy Canadian heavy metal band Prisoner is thrilled to announce the release of their electrifying new single, “Skies are Blackened,” from their eagerly awaited EP “House of Cards,” set to drop on August 21, 2024. Renowned for their hard-hitting riffs and unmistakably tight grooves, Prisoner continues to push the boundaries of modern rock music with this latest offering.

Commenting on the new single, the band stated, “It’s a hard-hitting, in-your-face hard rock/metal track rooted in thrash metal influence. Its upbeat tempo and high-energy rhythm drive the listener into the anthemic chorus topped with soaring high vocals. Lyrically, it speaks on world ideals and how we interact with one another in society under a scoped direction created by the upper echelon of people running our world.”

The creation of “House of Cards” reflects Prisoner’s dynamic journey, with the current lineup solidifying during the recording process. Founded in Calgary, Alberta, in 2020, Prisoner draws from classic hard rock, heavy metal, and blues to craft a sound that is both rooted in tradition and refreshingly modern. The band comprises frontman Murray Emery, guitarist Jeremy Hartmann, bassist Trevor Macdonald, and drummer Karl Pflug, each contributing to a powerful and cohesive hard rock experience.

“House of Cards” promises to be a conglomeration of music with multiple elements from varying sub-genres, bridging the gap between emotion and life experience. Both the single and the album are a must-listen for anyone interested in modern rock and heavy metal that pays homage to its predecessors from the 70s through the 2000s. Fans of Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Metallica, and AC/DC will find much to appreciate in Prisoner’s latest work.
