About Lead Us Forth

Lead Us Forth is a metal band born in Auckland, New Zealand with a passion for heavy music that holds a melodic edge and a progressive influence in its songs. It is forged from a desire to speak out a message of hope and encouragement from a platform of intelligent and intense music. The band formed in 2010 by vocalist, Kent Hartmann and guitarist, Luke Welten who started writing songs while studying at a performing arts school.

Each of the members of Lead Us Forth come from various backgrounds of musical influence, spanning jazz and gospel to hardcore and various forms of metal. They strive to bring to the table a sound that is fresh and also incorporates elements which lie outside the box of what is traditionally metal. Offering crushing riffs, and memorable grooves, Lead Us Forth is an upcoming band that demands attention.

Common factors that unite humanity are their experiences, their losses, victories, hopes and failures, and within the lyrics of Lead Us Forth lies a resounding call that even in the midst of brokenness and darkness, the light of redemption and purpose can be found. The journey of a band endeavouring to take its music to the masses is not a road easy to travel, but it is one that Lead Us Forth has chosen to embark on with resolve and purpose.
