This past March, Montreal’s Your Last Wish performed at Quebec City’s Le FestEvil, a festival celebrating women in metal and created to coincide with International Women’s Day. The goal of the festival was to highlight the great contribution and need for more presence of women in the Quebec metal scene. Le FestEvil was founded by the Canadian death metal band The Flaying guitarist Didier Samson and co-produced by Rope Dancer Productions and District 7 Production.
During their set at Le FestEvil, Your Last Wish captured live video of their track ‘Pandore’ with guest vocals from The Flaying‘s William Murray. The video can be viewed HERE.
The studio version of the song is on the band’s new album “Eradicate” released this past February and is a tribal prog duet that features Simon Girard of Beyond Creation. Listen HERE.
With roots in classic death and thrash metal, the melodic death metallers are darker, heavier and have matured in their sound. Their new concept album “Eradicate” beautifully exploits post-apocalyptic themes. It is a bilingual album with songs in both English and French along with being composed and recorded entirely by guitarist David Gagné, while all lyrics were written by vocalist Roxana Bouchard.
Friend and fan of the band Dan Mongrain of Voivod had this to say about the band:
”Your Last Wish’s new Album “Eradicate” will take you on an epic journey through extremely powerful musical landscapes that will transform your mind and emotions forever. That’s what quality art is for, and that’s what they do!”
For fans of old school Arch Enemy, Soilwork, and Black Dahlia Murder, “Eradicate” is available for stream and download on Bandcamp.com, Spotify, Apple Music.
