Progressive metallers Halcyon Way have premiered a new ripping track from their upcoming album, Conquer. You can stream the track over at GuitarWorld.com, where you can also get some insights from guitarist Jon Bodan, which includes:
The intro riff has a nice thrashy feel, with some diminished intervals and harmonies. When the verse kicks in, it goes into asort of groove, and the guitar riff is deep in the pocket but has a cool, technical streak.
The chorus has a nice groove as well; it’s good and catchy, and it has some interesting layers to it. Once you get to the bridge, we modified the intro riff a bit to give it more of a groove, and the solo is very vocal and slinky. I like to make sure my solos take you somewhere and give you some melody you can latch onto but have them move and build up.
Conquer will be available in North America on August 19th and in Europe/rest of the world on September 19th. Pre-orders can be made at www.halcyonway.com.
