Vanguardian releases “Back to Stone Age” single

Metal band Vanguardian hailing from Jyväskylä Finland releases their first single “Back to Stone Age” from their upcoming EP on Wednesday 8th of June. Single is accompanied by a music video.

Vanguardian took a leap to the unknown, threw away their prejudices, and recorded their second EP in a full analog session at Astia studio in Lappeenranta.

“Back to Stone age” opens the game with force, and truly shows the diversity and aggression the band can deliver. Due to non-existent possibilities to edit anything, every note, and every phrase is heard exactly as they were captured in the studio. Absolutely nothing is fixed or edited afterwards. This is something that is not heard too often in modern metal.

Band tells:

“We wanted to record these songs in the sincerest way possible and prove to anyone out there doubting analog recording methods, that modern technical metal is possible to record using a full-analog approach. We quickly realized that we were producing something truly unique in the studio. The upcoming EP is not only proving a point of doing things differently, but also pays homage to all those records that have influenced us since we first picked up our instruments as kids.”

“Back to Stone Age” was recorded and produced by Anssi Kippo (known especially for his work with Children of Bodom) with Sakari Soisalo. Music video was filmed by Arto Kettunen, who was responsible for the band’s previous music video “The Witchhammer”.
