Last Year’s tragedy is at it yet again. This Kenyan rock band released its first EP at the beginning of this year. The EP, dubbed Challenge Accepted, has been long in the making. According to the LYT, it has been an evolving album ever since the Kenyan rock outfit’s birth in 2006. It has not been smooth sailing all through for the band either. They had to go through 3 studios, overcome gear problems not to mention paying handsomely for the recording. However this Kenyan rock band swears it was entirely worth it. Songs in the EP include the title track, Challenge accepted, elephant in the room, Generation Light, How to kill a Dare devil and March from the underground. In an interview with Kenyan Rock Band the outfit stated that creating a sound that they loved was their top priority.
“We were always going to go for a sound that best pleases us first and then the fans. We always strive to make music that we love and that we can identify with... ”
If you are wondering about the title, these musicans felt it best represented what their music stands for. The band said it was about facing problems regardless of how daunting they appear. Response from Kenyan metal fans has been positive: Overwhelming is how the band put it. The band is planning a show soon to promote the EP. It’s still hush hush but stay tuned to Kenyan rock band and LYT’s facebook pages for more info. You can get their music on Reverbnation or the Kenyan music site, Mdundo.com as well.
