5. Laid Down
NUMENOREAN was founded by Brandon and Byron Lemley in Canada’s most northern major city, Calgary. The brothers released a two song demo under the title ‘Demo 2014’, and created waves among the northern underground scene. Following a strong reception for the demo release, NUMENOREAN finalized a live lineup and has performed at Canada’s Sled Island Festival in 2015, where the band shared the stage with DRIVE LIKE JEHU, GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, and SUMAC.
