Flavor of The Week: Last Years Tragedy



I know this isn't succinct with the list of the next blog post topic but I wanted to do a little flavor of the week about them.

Hailing from the budding Nairobi, Kenya metal/rock scene, LYT is a metalcore band who's influences include Underoath, Born of Osiris, and As I Lay Dying. You can clearly hear these in their song, "Walking Through Walls". Many of LYT's songs deal with the unstable political environment of the present and past in Kenya.
This band has been through the grind the past couple years (I believe since 07'), playing tons of local shows to the rock audience in Nairobi and are finally getting some good press. I hope one day we can see these guys in a North American tour someday as they would fit in just swell with the metal core scene here.
Currently they are unsigned.

As you all know, I'm not a huge metal core person but if YOU are, you may definitely take to them.

(Am I the only one who actually wanst to see more of this Tribal Metal like D-FE?-sort of the equivalent of European Folk Metal- I did a post about a while ago)

Also, check out their debut video, "How to Kill a Daredevil"

Yay or Nay? I want your opinion
