If you're into driving guitars, drums beaten senseless and a voice that sits just at the surface of your favourite whiskey, Crack the Lens might just float your boat.
For years, eastern influence has found its way into Crack the Lens' songs as a result of frontman Justin Wilson's childhood Nova Scotian summers and drummer Aiden Dunne's Newfoundland upbringing. With the release of the band's 3rd album, The Armoury (Fall 2018), the band decided to highlight that this new album really is a coming together of everyone's influence and ideas. Thus, CTL decided to slightly alter their moniker from the Gaelic-inspired "Craic the Lens" to the band's current spelling; a sort of new beginning to showcase the collaboration of four guys with varied influence - not just a couple guys who like Celtic tunes. The songs are loud, the drums are fast, the vocals are gritty. It's an album meant to be turned up.
