In 2020 they released a two piece release concisting of 2 EP´s

Current Tiers Chapter 1, featuring the single “Open My Eyes”, 2020
CurrentTiers Chapter 2, 2020
Fans of Within Temptation, Epica and Nightwish should find themselves in a familiar landscape. For me being a huge fan of symphonic metal and bands like Within Temptation and Tarja Turunen (formerly of Nightwish) this is the closest Christian alternative to them I’ve heard so far.
On Bandcamp the band describes themselves as:
“Emerging from the ashes of brokenness, the emptiness of clinging onto
worldly traditions. Breaking down the barriers of sub-genres and the hype of
trends. With a vision in mind to share personal trials and testimony through
music and share the love of Jesus Christ with others”.
So if you’re anywhere nearby California at these dates, don´t miss out on the rear opportunity to see this Christian symphonic act perform live.
