Established in early 2007 and hailing from Whitby, Canada, Strings of Ares is comprised of four individuals who have been keen on melting their art together for over half a decade. Hank Bielanski, Trevor Brook-Allred, Jonathan Krem and Jeff Longo share a hunger for something real and new – various talents and experiences from these four musicians have come together to create some of the most unique, intricate and extreme heavy metal to come out of Canada in a long time.
Conceptually (or lyrically) Strings of Ares is a force that was the brainchild of Jeff and Hank (given their namesake by London scholar Mark Dolson), focusing primarily on ancient Rome and ancient Greece – themes in war, mythology, the cosmos and beyond.
After a short period of working together and creating their works (along with a handful of select performances around Ontario), Strings of Ares are now gearing up to record their first release in early 2009 at Chalet Studio with Ian Bodzasi (Randy Bachman, Nelly Furtado, The Tea Party). The EP, “Temple to Mars” will feature six numbers that are sure to turn some heads with both industry professionals and heavy metal fanatics alike and is tentatively planned to be mixed by Neil Kernon (Nile, Cannibal Corpse).
Featuring a sound that is fresh and ground breaking in an era where something new is definitely tough to come by – a sound that is all their own, indescribable perhaps; it can only be called the Strings of Ares.
