Plaguebringer: The New EP brief but epic

Within many local music scenes there is a pervasive feeling that some artists might have gone amiss. That there is a diamond in the rough of bands that push forth trying to get their sound out and heard. Plaguebringer is one of those diamonds. With just over five years since their inception, a couple member changes, and a bit of a hiatus since their 2014 release Hallowed, the band is back in full force and ready to drop their newest EP, Three Kings.

Firstly, it must be pointed out that the first track off the three track EP,MALEFICARVM, is a mind-bending, masterpiece of a song. It’s accompanying video, which can be found on YouTube, is also a DIY production by the band. Even after a long hiatus they have still found a way to push their ability to another level. Lyrically they’ve explored psionic cognitive function with the title track “Three Kings.”

“It’s kind of like a psychological situation, the mirror phenomenon, where you set up two mirrors on either side of you, in the dark,” Explains vocalist Diaro (DJ) Irvine. “The idea is that it separates your psyche into your id, your ego, and your superego. It ends up being like you’re talking to yourself but with different personalities. I wrote it from that perspective based off a chapter in the book from the 1800s, The Yellow King. Sort of an interaction between spirits.”

With such deep lyrics to accompany the masterful riff writing from guitarist, Aaron James, it’s hard not hard to want more than just a three song EP. But with all the members having careers and/or families, they are enjoying it while they can. “It’s been five years and I really love it, we’re not planning to give it up anytime soon,” says Irvine. The band has hopes of releasing a more complete album in the future and have also made plans to go on a Canadian tour in June.

Amongst the balance between life and music they have a knack of staying true to their form and love for their respective sound. “We’ve always been very honest with everything that we’ve done musically. To this day, we’re still writing the music that we love to write regardless of what trends exist out there. We’re always playing the music that we want to hear,” guitarist Aaron Lang explains. Showing that kind of passion which many great metal bands exude, Plaguebringer, with their brief but epic EP, Three Kings, are shredding to keep the love of music alive.

Plaguebringer release Three Kings on March 18th, with a Western Canadian tour to follow.
