The Skinny: Vancouver, BC-based metal band Tribune are streaming their upcoming author inspired concept album Tales via their YouTube channel (see below) before its official release on Tuesday, October 29th. Inspired by the writings of some of the world’s most renowned authors, including H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, Homer among many others, Tales explores a more melodic and progressive sound than ever before, but still staying true to the group’s extreme aggression roots.

The follow-up to 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts, demonstrates Tribune’s brawn and brains with a collusion of extremity and accessibility. As the band’s appetite for more extreme metal increased, bands like Carcass, Death and At The Gates began bleeding into their melting pot of influences, resulting in a fresh take on their fine metal sound, which can be heard echoing in the depths of Tribune’s Tales.
