PROMETHEE ‘Sickness Unto Death’, out now.
SWISS SLAYERS PROMETHEE RELEASE STUNNING SINGLE!
Taking from the likes of Job For A Cowboy’ and The Black Dahlia Murder, and combining the melodic death metal guile of ‘Darkest Hour’, Promethee have developed their original, yet brutal noise-fest.
Hailing from Geneva, Switzerland, Promethee were formed in 2008 by three lifelong friends, Ludo, Nils, and Elric, who sowed the early seeds for the band but they soon drafted in Josh and Mathieu in as they looked to solidify their line-up. The metal crew began to play shows throughout Switzerland, and by 2010, the five-some had made tour tracks throughout France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, and Hungary, including an influential appearance at the Greenfield Festival playing alongside HIM, Rammstein, The Prodigy, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, among others. Never ones to stand still, Promethee continued their ascent by securing a mini-tour in Canada before releasing their debut EP which racked up critical acclaim throughout the UK and mainland Europe.
Promethee are now back in the saddle with their stunning new single and video ‘Sickness unto Death’; this gem of a track is a vicious cut and real statement of intent— a powerful marker for what’s to come from the band’s full length debut album, out early 2013.
