“The New Faces of Metal leads us up the burning road to Avery's Decent! These guys are true Metal.” – Patrick Smart (Montreal Metal Podcasts / Programming Director at Radio Rock Drummond) - Patrick Smart (Montreal Metal Podcasts / Programming Director at Radio Rock Drummond)


"It was so cool to play at Foufounes Electrics & The Opera House with so many great bands including Avery's Descent. They are old school, kick-ass rock n' roll in style and attitude. If you like "Burning Roads" check them out live where they take things to a new level!" – Don Jamieson (THAT METAL SHOW on VH1 Classic) - Don Jamieson (THAT METAL SHOW on VH1 Classic)


“This is the kind of band that makes you want to mosh and break stuff, as well as having memorable riffs and songs. Once you hear them, you'll know why.” – Kevin Jardine (Slaves on Dope, The Monarchy, Uplift Productions) - Kevin Jardine (Slaves on Dope, The Monarchy, Uplift Productions)

Bio

Originally conceived by frontman Andrew Stevens, Avery’s Descent assembled its present line-up and sound by rounding out the line-up with four childhood friends, Raymond Montour, Brady Cross, Kevin Lahache and Marshall McComber, from Kahnawake, a small Native community outside of Montreal. Having grown up together, their songwriting process incorporates every band members’ input of ideas, criticisms, and influences - which range from old school to new school metal and the several metal sub-genres in between - and their experiences of living on a Native reserve. “We try to have a piece of everyone’s mind and body on every track. We want to write songs that we would want to rock out to,” explains Stevens.

In early 2009, the band began to record their debut album with producer Kevin Jardine (Slaves on Dope, The Monarchy) at Uplift Production Studios in Montreal, Canada. The album called Burning Roads blends such topics as religion, betrayal, self-destruction and addiction into a musical and emotional rollercoaster ride. “We honestly thought this album would have never gotten off the ground. We lost a lot of time with studio issues before we got in with Kevin [Jardine], we had a member leave, we had Marshall [McComber] come in and learn every song and put his input in on all the songs, we saw first-hand how much work goes into an album and we learnt a lot of things the hard way. In the end, a lot of these songs reflect what has been going on in our heads and in our lives for the past while and this is the best representation of us,” adds Stevens. Burning Roads made its way to the public on March 4th, 2010 and is available on iTunes worldwide, Napster, AmazonMP3 and most major mp3 retailers as well as the band’s online store.
