Reigning in the powerful midwest attitude, Affiance
combines elements that tear from the sleeve of metal legends with powerful guitar riffs and soaring vocals. "We are still a relatively small band in a very big metal world and we hope to change that with this album. Blackout is a bit darker than our previous albums, and I think it's time for heavy music with melodies to make its presence known in American metal culture. I am proud to be a part of that."
