It’s time to stand up and take notice of Ovtlier. The band will release their debut EP What Doesn’t Kill You tomorrow (Dec. 8), but they’re giving Loudwire’s readers a preview with an exclusive advance EP stream.
The Rochester, N.Y. outfit started off as a one-man project in the summer of 2014, but has grown to a five-piece outfit featuring vocalist Joey Arena, guitarists Paul Milne and Joe Syracusa, bassist Cosmo Pusateri and drummer Joey Lana. Their debut disc is pulsing with heaviness, with a booming low end and a mix of fist-to-the-air anthems and driving rockers. Highlights include the electronically-tinged opener “Your Disease,” the triumphant “Set the World in Flames,” the crushing “Vice” and the hard-hitting “Buried Me Alive.”
