German post-hardcore band Alazka have released their first track ‘Empty Throne’. Alazka is made up of members of Burning Down Alaska, who recently changed their name Alazka (the wait to find this out lead to speculation that the band had broken up).
While I was expecting Alazka to completely drop screaming with this name change, Empty Throne does have a lot of similarities with Alazka’s previous sound. However, their is a far stronger emphasis on clean vocals and more upbeat instrumentation than before, but is still an enjoyable track.
What do you all think?
