With impressive, powerful vocals and sweeping, exhilarating riffs, Sovereign Council have received tons of attention in their home country of Canada and even more internationally. From raving reviews, radio appearances, and magazine features it is clear that they are definitely a band you should check out! Comprised of five members, this band lineup lends a noteworthy blend of male and female vocals, which is particularly unique to the metal scene. The band’s third studio effort ‘World On Fire‘ is on its way and leading up to that is the single ‘Breathe You In‘, the band shares their excitement:
“This is the oldest song from this release. The first versions of this song were actually written and recorded in early 2018. It has gone through various stages of development before we settled on the final version. Our fans may be surprised by our new sound and line-up change. We feel it’s a step in the right direction and hope that our fans agree.”
With a large focus placed on their live show, Sovereign Council has played with some of the biggest names in the power and symphonic genres. They try their best to make their audience feel like they are performing for each individual in the crowd. They strive for listeners to be completely immersed in their meticulous storytelling, and contagious music. They want fans to experience the energy of the music and connect with the songs visually and audibly.
Since 2012, Sovereign Council has continued to evolve, their sound is maturing and becoming more accessible, relatable, and marketable. Going from gothic melodic metal to now, more modern metal, they are recommended for fans of Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, and Evergrey.
