From: DC, United States
Genre: Metal, Thrash, Melodic Death
Originally formed in 2008, Yesterday's Saints worked primarily as a local act until being featured in 2010 on "For The Headbangers - Brutal New Music Volume One" with Overkill, Kingdom of Sorrow, High on Fire, and others. Complied by Jamey Jasta.
In 2010 a line up change brought vocalist Matt Rice a new band to increase the metal fortitude of the band and expansion to a regional market. With influence from Slayer, Metallica (pre-Black Album), Scar Symmetry, Nevermore, Warbringer, Amon Amarth, Suffocation, Manowar, and others; Yesterday's Saints' sound has developed in to a heavy and very intense dynamic musical force. However, restriction to one metal sub-genre has yet to encompass Yesterday's Saints with Albert Born's drumming being complex and diverse and Matt Rice's vocals spanning from guttural lows across 5 octaves to soaring highs. Yesterday's Saints musical composition, driven by Witt Black and Nick Gosseaux, contains depth and melodic complexity yet does not give up intensity or hook while lyrically maintaining individual song concepts.
Yesterday's Saints have been touring the US East Coast with eyes of international expansion with the release of their first full-length album in the coming year.
