    Thought-provoking and positive, which the genre of all things heavy could certainly use a lot more of.

    For Today will release their sixth full-length album, Wake, on October 2 via new label Nuclear Blast. It follows up the Sioux City metal outfit's bruising fifth offering Fight The Silence, which dropped just back in 2014 and debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums Chart. The group—Mattie Montgomery [lead vocals], Ryan Leitru [lead guitar, clean vocals], Brandon Leitru [bass], and David Puckett [drums]—manage to fine tune their sound to perfection with the first single from Wake, "Broken Lens."

    Right out of the gate, "Broken Lens" shatters the sense with a distinctly bludgeoning groove a la Pantera and Hatebreed-style intensity. However, this is distinctly "For Today" with its syncopated slam and Mattie's entrancing scream. Moreover, there's a message at the heart of For Today's music. It's thought-provoking and positive, which the genre of all things heavy could certainly use a lot more of. They might just incite a different kind of awakening.
