A lot has changed for Project 86 in the three years since the release of “Picket Fence Cartel.” Guitarist Randy Torres and Bassist Steven Dail have officially exited the band leaving lead vocalist Andrew Schwab the only original member. Shortly after, Project 86 announced their departure from their long-time home Tooth & Nail Records. The band’s eighth endeavor, “Wait For The Siren” marks their first attempt in the independent arena.

Despite all the changes, Project 86 remain true to their sound. It’s evident from track one that aggressive riffs and in-your-face vocals are still the foundation of their music. “SOTS” is arguably the heaviest Project 86 song to date, helped by the deep growls of Living Sacrifice vocalist Bruce Fitzhugh. Other guest appearances are made from musicians of top hard rock and metal bands, including Brian “Head” Welch of Love and Death, Andrew Welch formerly of Disciple, and Rocky Gray formerly of Evanescence to name a few.

Multiple guest appearances is not the only surprise the band has in store on “Wait For The Siren.” From the start of the album with “Fall Goliath Fall” listeners will notice that Project 86 weaved in some non-traditional instruments like the dulcimer. This Celtic inspiration is taken a step further on “Ghosts of Easter Rising” with the addition of a Uilleann pipes.

After the departure of two original members, fans (including myself) may have been apprehensive as to whether the new music would sound like Project 86. “Wait For The Siren” proves that the band is not only still going strong, but also taking the classic Project 86 sound to new heights.
