UK metallers FORLORN HOPE continue their surge and have released a powerful new track, Vitoria, taken from their forthcoming debut album, Over The Hills, out on Friday 26th July.
FORLORN HOPE come at you from Merseyside and astutely blend history and heavy metal with colossal results. The band use hard-hitting, hook-filled heavy metal and vivid, meticulously researched lyrics to retell, through the medium of metal, some of the most dramatic stories in military history. High octane classic metal riffs and imposing keyboards bond to give these tales the sense of excitement, power and scale that they deserve.
In March 2018 FORLORN HOPE dropped their self-titled debut EP. Throughout the year, the band played a series of stand-out sets, performing at the Northern Symphony Festival and in the Merseyside heat of the national Metal to the Masses competition. The fivesome also went on to support NWOBHM legends Raven and Swedish symphonic heavyweights Eleine.
FORLORN HOPE stride forward with the release of their intoxicating debut album, Over The Hills. The release is a collection of stories of horror and heroism from the Peninsular War of 1807-1814. With further releases on the horizon and a string of live shows planned for the Summer, the future is very bright for FORLORN HOPE.
