Longtime vocalist and founding member of the first-ever metalcore band Atreyu, Alex Varkatzas, has reportedly left the band after over 20 years and countless shows as one of metalcore’s most commercially successful acts.
Execution Day has been on the upwards climb up with their music as of lately with the release of their newest EP ‘Illusions’. Execution Day is a New York metalcore band with their first song ‘Disconnect’ releasing in 2016. The up and comers are good at capturing emotional meaning and energy inside their music. Execution Day’s newest EP ‘Illusions’ is currently skyrocketing for the band. The EP has set record numbers for Execution Day – reaching the iTunes metal charts, and cumulating over 150k streams on their EP on Spotify. ‘Illusions’ is a great push forward for the band. The collective work is by far the bands most ambitious, and successful release to date. Fans of We Came as Romans, Like Moths To Flames, Ice Nine Kills, and Wage War will certainly find something about Execution Day they’ll love.
