The Five Hundred Release ‘The Rush’ Video, Reveal EP Details & Announce Tour Supporting Carnifex!


Nottingham metallers The Five Hundred unveil lyric video ‘The Rush’, taken from their upcoming EP, ‘The Veil'


The Five Hundred have been hard at work writing their latest EP, ‘The Veil’, the follow-up to their 2015 EP, ‘Winters’. ‘The Veil’ was produced by Justin Paul Hill (Sikth, Heart of a Coward, Betraying The Martyrs) and will be released on April 21st, 2017 via London Road Records. ‘The Veil’ is a collection of the band's most haunting, heavy and darkly melodic work so far.


As a preview of what to expect from ‘The Veil’, The Five Hundred have unveiled their first taste from the EP with new lyric video for ‘The Rush’.The haunting video shows gruesome, horror movie-like imagery, including a creepy dolls head and bloody knives. See the video below!






The Five Hundred is a five-piece that formed in late 2014, providing technical, melodic metal from the rough streets of Nottingham, UK. The quintet is known for unleashing barrages of down-tuned riffs and mind blowing hooks performed on eight-string guitars. The band deliver plenty of crushing technical grooves fronted by ferociously conquering roaring shouts. This is balanced out beautifully by captivating lead melodies and clean singing vocals.







'The Veil' tracklist

1. Aftermath
2. Ghost In The Flames
3. The Rush
4. The Veil
5. The Veil Pt II


Opening track, 'The Aftermath' follows on from the decay of the Nottingham quintet's previous release, a mournful introduction to what quickly becomes a punch-to-the-face riff frenzy. 'The Rush' is the first track to be unleashed from the EP.

Guitarist Mark Byrne describes the song: "It's a tale of euphoric misanthropy and hauntingly dark despair. The music effortlessly combines furious guitar work and painfully beautiful melody with spine-snapping breakdowns and depraved, sadistic lyrics."

With rumours of the release of a full debut album later on this year (label yet to be announced), 'The Veil' serves as tasty precursor to what promises to be The Five Hundred's ascent to becoming one of the UK's hottest new metal bands.

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

TO BE RELEASED MARCH 16TH ON APF RECORDS!
2018 marks the return of Oxford-based sludge-metal titans Desert Storm as they prepare to follow the release of 2014’s critically-acclaimed ‘Omniscient’ album with their new opus ‘Sentinels’, confirmed for release this coming March 16th via APF Records.


Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
