Wall of Sound presents “2015 YEAR IN REVIEW” – by Tempest Rising’s, James Ward-Armstrong

Perth metal band, Tempest Rising continued to build a solid foundation around the local scene in 2015, following on from the band’s debut album, Transmutation of 2014. A favourite amongst locals, Tempest Rising is quickly gathering a reputation as one of the tightest local acts around Perth, with singer Vin Trikeriotis‘ towering vocal style and the riffs coming fast and heavy! Despite numerous local appearances, the band also ventured out on an east coast tour in March/April, playing sharing the stage with Sydney’s Hard rock/prog band, Red Bee. Tempest Rising also dropped a new single/video, ‘Know My Name’ in the latter parts of 2015 – check it out below!

Joining the Wall of Sound website for a run down of his best of the best for 2015 is guitarist of the band and the king of riffs, Mr James ‘Slaytanic’ Ward-Armstrong! Enjoy….
