Death by Ki

DEATH BY KI RELEASE NEW VIDEO NOW…..

 
Bursting out of Bridgwater, Somerset, newcomers Death By Ki bond together a formidable sound, lifting from the rampant power of Slayer and Lamb Of God and the old school riffery of Metallica. The South West road warriors, comprised of Josh Ayerst (Guitars and lead vocals), Chris Chamberlain (Guitars and backing vocals), Will Robins (Bass and backing vocals), and Nick Cope (Drums), pack together a heady blend of pummelling hooks laced with Slayer-esque vocals, set with layered riffage, and complemented by sturdy bass and rock solid beats.
Death By Ki now release debut EP, ‘The Right Of Might’, which immediately lunges forward with stunning pace, spewing out frantic drumming and hi-octane riffs to striking effect. Ramming five songs of intensely contagious vocal lines, a burly rhythm section, and high paced Kirk Hammett-esque licks, the band have produced a blazing and potent slice of modern metal.
The South west metalheads have also just unveiled new video single ‘Control (In A World Of Free Will)’ and you can check it our right here at – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BdcIfXONHE&feature=youtu.be

HOTLY TIPPED SKEWED DUO WHERE THE SKELETONS PLAY RETURN WITH STUNNING NEW RECORD!
 
“It would be easy to write this off as Deftones-worship. But, while the Sacramento five-piece experiment to avoid, or mask, stagnation, WTSP use experimentation as a means to reinforce already solid and interesting foundations.” 10/10 Metal Discovery
 
Sounding like a hybrid of the gritty messed-up grooves of Deftones bred with the spawn of Tool, under the cunning orchestration of Trent Reznor, Where The Skeletons Play return and are poised to move through the ranks of the UK scene with their explosive new record ‘Serotonin Blueprints’, out 27th May 2013.
Born in 2011 as a purely studio-based project, Where The Skeletons Play are the innovation of Stitch (Vocals) and Bones (Instrumentation). As they pull from a span of notable influences ranging from the likes of Pelican, Deftones, and Tool, through to Nine Inch Nails, Where The Skeletons Play can be broadly labelled as ambient Hard Rock. However, the dynamic duo undeniably manage to carve their very own indelible mark on proceedings. As you sink into the woven texturing of the band, you’ll soon discover that they are set well apart from their contemporary counterparts. Progressive, yet accessible, the band have fastidiously crafted a sound that is imaginative, while harnessing their genuine ability to write a killer tune.
Since their formation, Where The Skeletons Play have had a steady output of strong material. The mysterious two-some released their debut EP ‘Generation Wars’ in the Summer of 2012 and it soon garnered strong praise and notoriety from fans and many sectors of the underground press for its unique brand of Off-Kilter Hard Rock. And now, the wirey upstarts are armed with their exciting new six-track EP ‘Serotonin Blueprints’, which swerves and pulls the listener right from the off. The record is stacked with inventive riffs, intriguing time-signatures, ambient guitar tapestries, and hooky melodies that will leave you craving for more. With further tracks waiting in the wings, it’s apparent that WTSP are destined for great things. So, look out –- Where The Skeletons Play are only just getting started.

SOUTH WALES ROCK ‘N’ ROLLERS RELEASE DEBUT EP!

 
Attacking your senses like the warped bastard child of Queens Of The Stoneage loaded up on a vintage batch of whisky, Milestone will pound your head into compliance with their invigorating blend of scuzzy Alt-rock. The band release their spanking new EP ‘Medicate The Night’ through Imperial Music on Monday 13th May.
Set firmly apart from their Metalcore peers in South Wales, Milestone are inspired by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Them Crooked Vultures, The Black Keys, Jack White, and the Foo Fighters, and loosely sit within the arena of twisted alternative-rock with their hearty and alluring angular sound, underpinned by edgy blues rock.
Formed in February 2012, after meeting in College in Bridgend, South Wales, Milestone have an individual and collective rampant obsession with riff-driven rock, and it manifests itself in their music. The quartet are steadily picking up new fans and have already extensively played throughout their homeland, sharing stages with an assortment of artists such as Exit International, The Dead Famous, Gavin Butler from The Blackout, and Neil Starr from Attack, Attack. The twisted riffsmiths are also poised to strike out to the nation with touring soon to be announced.

Now fresh from bunkering down in the studio, where the band laid down five cuts, Milestone are set to nationally unveil their stunning debut EP ‘Medicate The Night’, and it’s a real gem. From the rock ‘n’ roll strut and groove of opener ‘Dirty Knees’, to the EP’s title track ‘Medicate The Night’ which comes at you with a rollercoaster ride of fuzzed up raw riffage, and to the dynamics of closer ‘Bless Your Soul’, these South Wales rocksters have cultivated a throbbing beast of a debut that will command your attention and ensure that the band take flight.

DEATH BY KI debut EP’The Right Of Might’, out 20th May‏

Death By Ki Online Promo Shot

Brit riff-slingers ‘Death By Ki’ unleash their enticing debut record ‘The Right Of Might’ through all digital outlets on Monday 20th May 2013.

Bursting out of Bridgwater, Somerset, newcomers Death By Ki bond together a formidable sound, lifting from the rampant power of Slayer and Lamb Of God and the old school riffery of Metallica. The South West road warriors, comprised of Josh Ayerst (Guitars and lead vocals), Chris Chamberlain (Guitars and backing vocals), Will Robins (Bass and backing vocals), and Nick Cope (Drums), pack together a heady blend of pummelling hooks laced with Slayer-esque vocals, set with layered riffage, and complemented by sturdy bass and rock solid beats.
The early roots of the band stem back to Josh and Nicky C’s school days, where the duo regularly jammed. Over time, they hooked up with Will and began to lay the early foundations for Death By Ki. However, it was not until 2011, when Chris joined the ranks, that things really started to solidify for the four piece. Since then, the lively quartet have pinned down countless shows across the UK supporting the likes of  ‘Gallows’, ‘Revoker’, ‘Romeo Must Die’, ‘Evile’, and Australian metallers ‘Be’Lakor’ along the way.
 
After vigorously sharpening their set, the band took up residency at Junkyard Studios in Newport, Wales, where the four piece put down tracks for their first official EP with Jeff Rose (former guitarist for Dub War and Skindred) who has recently worked with the likes of Bullet For My Valentine, Revoker, and Funeral For A Friend.
Death By Ki came out of the studio with their debut EP, ‘The Right Of Might’, which immediately lunges forward with stunning pace, spewing out frantic drumming and hi-octane riffs to striking effect. Ramming five songs of intensely contagious vocal lines, a burly rhythm section, and high paced Kirk Hammett-esque licks, the band have produced a blazing and potent slice of modern metal. Now, with an army of fans waiting in the trenches, the stage is all set for the band to rise and break out to the nation.
 
++ The new video for ‘Control (In A World Of Free Will)’ was filmed in the crypt beneath St. Paul’s Church in Bristol by Carl Shanahan; it will also be released on Monday 20th May. Details of an exclusive premier will be announced during the coming weeks ++

Elysium Promo Shot

ELYSIUM DEBUT EP LAUNCHED!

UK Riff Tyrants arrive with an explosive debut EP ‘In Valour’, out nationwide from Monday 13th May.
Pulling from a host of areas from the dynamism of Lower Than Atlantis, to the melodic onslaught of A Day To Remember and Four Year Strong, through to the power and drive of Architects, Elysium have sculptured a sound that twists and turns, but is hugely satisfying and will undoubtedly captivate its audience.
 
Spawned from the ashes of their previous band ‘Times Like These’, Elysium are a brand new band with their own manifesto and they are intent on sharing it with the nation. Formed during the later part of 2012 and hailing from Watford (the birthplace for recent luminaries The Gallows and Lower Than Atlantis), Elysium have been burrowed away in their practise room for the past three months penning a brand new live set and working on their debut EP.
 
Now armed with their debut record ‘In Valour’, which is released this May, the band will surely take gargantuan steps forward. From the get-go, the EP’s title track ‘In Valour’ soon rips itself through your ear drums boasting a flowing collection of strapping riffs and vocal lines that cunningly weave in and around your cranium. Before you know it ‘I’m A Thief But I Keep What I Steal’ is upon you and is snapping at your heels for attention, and you should duly oblige, as this venom laced cut is a blistering piece of modern angst punk tinged post-hardcore. Next up, ‘Scars’ takes flight with its scatter gun riffage and soaring melodies, while ‘Boy’ closes the record with a potent slab of gritty rockcore that tugs at your heart strings while beating your head into submission. Buy the record this May and look out for the band on tour throughout the remainder of the year!

RISING UPTEMPO ROCK CREW SPIT OUT POWERHOUSE NEW EP, STUNNING VIDEO, AND UK TOUR!

 
Alt tunesmiths ‘Jet Pack’ drop their hugely impressive new EP through digital stores on Monday 6th May, along with a brand new video and UK tour.
West Midland new guns, Jet Pack, are set to make a hefty impression on the currently buoyant Brit-rock scene with their heartfelt brand of melody-drenched rock. Merging a sincere alternative edge with probing guitar rhythms and alluring emotive vocal lines, fused with strong post-punk DIY ethics, the hard working foursome take from the hooky fluency of Blink 182, the sheer rock dynamism of Foo Fighters, and the song writing dexterity of Jimmy Eat World. In the culmination, Jet Pack have produced a captivating sound that will pound right out of your speakers.
 
Formed out of university in 2008 and born in Cheltenham, Jet Pack consist of Dennis Cook (Vocals / Guitar), Paul Roberts (Lead Guitar / Vocals), Richard Beattie (Bass), and Sam Haskins (Drums), who were all brought together by their mutual love for pop-punk. Since then, the band have relentlessly toured the nation’s highways and byways, playing headline home town shows supporting Hype Theory, General Fiasco, Attention Thieves, and Hildamay, as well as playing acoustic slots before Blink 182 at the LG Arena in Birmingham. Jet Pack are also set to open with another acoustic slot for Biffy Clyro and City and Colour later this month. With a strong work ethos, aided by their memorably hi-octane live shows, everything is starting to fall into place for the band, as their growing fan-base will testify.
 
Jet Pack now stride forward as they step up to the plate with their new EP ‘Chasing Sunsets’. With esteemed producer Matt O’Grady (Youmeatsix, Deaf Havana) at the helm, the record is a heaving enterprise of strapping riffs and hooky cuts, gleaming with classy contagious melodies and considered up-tempo arrangements. From the stomping groovage and urgent intent of their new single ‘Back To Life’, to the sweeping contagious refrain of ‘Now I Know How John Locke Felt’, right through to the majestic and utterly tuneful ‘Heat Of The Moment’, and to the anthemic ‘All I Need’, the alt-rockers exert a snappy ability for solid melody and have unveiled a killer debut record that is sure to steer the band to giddy heights for the remainder of 2013 and beyond!

The power trio now strike out on their own with their first UK tour penned for April in support of the national release of their debut EP, ‘Secrets’.
‘Secrets’ instantly marks its arrival, packing a hefty blow to the senses. Brimming with thumping down-tuned guitar parts, pulsating rhythms and contagious rock anthems, ‘Secrets’ is a truly honest and potent modern hard rock record. From the pounding riffery of the opener ‘Hollow’, to the dynamic and anthemic ‘Not Alone’ and on to the stomping craft of the EP’s namesake ‘Secrets’, the band have sculptured a stunning debut.
