Project 86 is back with their latest release Wait for the Siren, their eighth studio album due out August 21, 2012. Project 86 is from Orange County, CA, with a progressive sound that is very common in today’s urban metal scene. Using a Kickstarter campaign, the band took to the fans saying that now “the fans are our record label”, the band was able to record Wait for the Siren. Project 86 has had a lot of success selling over 500,000 units worldwide, giving fans a much-anticipated release.
Overall, without sounding harsh, we’ve heard this all before. With so many ways you can go in metal, it would have been nice to see Project 86 really challenge themselves and put an album together that shows their talent. Time will tell; maybe we’ll have to look past Wait for the Siren and hope their next album really pushes the boundary of what this band is all about, because Project 86 is a band that could break out in the metal scene.
