Polaris Smash Aussie iTunes Charts; Get Added To Legion 2017


Huge news from the Sydney breakdown scene today – melodic shredders Polaris have welcomed their sophomore EP, The Guilt & The Grief, with a #1 debut on both the Australian iTunes Rock and Metal Charts! Not only that, but they’ve also managed to come in at #6 in the overall Album Charts, which considering that heavy music is often snubbed in favour of more “accessible” fare, is nothing short of fucking incredible. BLUNT have always tipped Polaris as an especially promising act, so as to be expected, we’re frothing pretty hard over the boys’ success right now!

The quintet have also been announced as part of the lineup for next year’s Legion Festival, following news from earlier in the month that the crowdfunded event would no longer take place in 2016. Announced today via the festival’s Pozible campaign, they’re (potentially) set to join fellow local killers Capture The Crown, and Perth-based Karnivool and Gyroscope supergroup Heard Of Cows? All three of those bands will potentially join Finnish costume-metallers Lordi, who you may recognise as one of the acts set to have played Soundwave ’16, had it not, y’know… Been mercilessly slaughtered.

Watch the video for Polaris’ crushing “Regress” below!
