There is nothing stopping Brit heavy metal quintet FORLORN HOPE who continue their climb. The band have just unleashed an explosive new track, Badajoz, taken from their incoming debut album, Over The Hills, out on Friday 26th July.
FORLORN HOPE hail from Merseyside and shrewdly fuse history and heavy metal with epic results. The band use hard-hitting, hook-filled metal and rich, meticulously researched lyrics to retell, through the medium of metal, some of the most dramatic stories in military history. High octane classic riffs and striking keyboards merge to give these tales the sense of excitement, power and scale that they deserve.
In March 2018 FORLORN HOPE revealed 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 group also went on to support NWOBHM legends Raven and Swedish symphonic heavyweights Eleine.
FORLORN HOPE push forward with the release of their engulfing 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.
