In a world saturated with bands playing heavy music just to be "heavy" or fit a mold, It Prevails sets the bar on an entirely differently plain.
It Prevails is a five piece melodic metalcore band hailing from Portland, Oregon,formed in 2004. They are now based out of Denver, Colorado. The band draws influence from 90’s metal hardcore. Bands like Shai Hulud, Twelve Tribes, and Strongarm were on constant rotation at hangouts during their inception. A premium was placed on lyrics related to struggles of the human condition and altruistic actions. It Prevails released a four song EP, Indelible in 2005, their debut album The Inspiration in ‘07.
Influenced by this life's struggles and hardships. Love and pain. Beauty and patience. It Prevails fits no mold, or even genre. But expands on the music they grew up on alone. Bands ranging from Strike Anywhere and Osker to bands like Taken and Strongarm. With their brand new album Capture & Embrace, It Prevails teams up with Rain City records and help from producer Ryan Furlott and mixed / mastered by Beau Burchell (of Saosin) to create quite possibly one of the most genre bending, focused records this generation has seen in years. Sit back and enjoy the work of five friends doing what they love, with no pretense or filler, Capture & Embrace pushes the envelope of heavy music in its purest form.
