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.
