New at Sonic Cathedral: Review of Apparatus’s “Evolution”

Apparatus Evolution cover

At first listen, Apparatus sounds like your typical North American alternative rock/metal band. But once you’re two songs into their second album Evolution, it’s clear that they’re far from the typical. This quartet from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada weaves progressive influences through in-your-face alternative metal and top it off with sweeping clean vocals, guttural screams (all from the same singer, Melanie Laquerre), and lyrics that embrace social awareness and spirituality. Those are all reasons why I said Evolution “takes you on a journey that’s as intense as it is insightful.”
