Brit melodic death metallers EARTHBOUND will unveil their much-anticipated sophomore EP, Desolate, on Friday 11th October. The explosive riff merchants have also just revealed a new track, Of Suffering – https://youtu.be/ygBmiIfzcQA .
UK metal crew EARTHBOUND have been causing a stir throughout the metal fraternity for the past eighteen months. Possessing a reputation for delivering a sound that is a face-melting concoction of modern metal entwined with dynamic passages and alluring vocal lines, the band skillfully tip their hats to a host of varied influences, mapping from Iron Maiden and Trivium to Soilwork and Arch Enemy.
Originally formed as a quartet in Hitchin in the early months of 2017, school friends: Tom Watson (vocals), Louie Penfold (guitar), Chris Stroud (bass & keys) and Richard Shearing (drums) soon hit the live circuit and began making serious waves throughout the Hertfordshire area. The band’s self-produced debut EP, Endure, spiked continual interest, however, it wasn’t until additional guitarist, John Stacy, arrived that everything clicked into place for the newly invigorated five-piece. A stunning appearance at Bloodstock Open Air Festival and supporting Doyle and Countless Skies have also helped to place the band on the map.
EARTHBOUND now aspire for new heights with their brand new EP, Desolate, which is an utter beast of a record. It’s an impressive EP that has enough power and precision to level an apartment block. The band comment about the release: “For our second EP ‘Desolate’ we wanted to build upon the foundation laid by our debut EP ‘Endure.’ We all felt motivated to create a follow up that was bigger in every sense. We recorded the EP at Avenue Studios with Dan Kerr which provided the record with the level of production we believed the songs deserved. Musically the record follows on from ‘Endure,’ with the songs becoming more focused and lyrics building upon our underlying concept.”
The emerging fivesome are also poised to play a host of shows throughout the rest of the year. Stay glued to their social sites for festival updates.
