Press release:

Area 54

The London based quartet are metal in the best sense; intricate and assured musicianship, powerhouse riffing with often progressive, landscapes and majestic vocals. Since their inception in 1997 they have developed a watertight, yet aggressive sound that combines the intensity of bands like Fear factory and megadeath with the melody of Disturbed and other forward thinking post millennial metal bands

Beckoning of the end, is the follow up to the bands 2002 debut LP CD 'No visible scars'. The critically acclaimed record capitalised on the Bands ferocious live reputation, and this Latest release builds on that by firmly announcing that they have talent to spare.

Released on Casket records (CSK015) and featuring a guest appearence from Tomas Lindberg (ex-At the gates - vocalist) Beckoning of the end represents a solid statement of intent from Area 54 that they mean business
