With the success of bands such as Architects and Bring Me The Horizon, a new wave of UK metalcore acts are emerging. One of those bands is Portsmouth’s Forever In Depths.
Formed in 2011, the quintet have developed a strong local fan base having played along the South Coast regularly. Now with their second EP, ‘Darkness,’ they set to look further afield and take their brand of melodic metalcore nationwide.
‘Darkness’ is three slices of pulsating metalcore that lends itself to the genres predecessors yet highlights the young bands potental and skills.
As an introduction to Forever In Depths, we are premiering the video for the title track from the EP. ‘Darkness’ displays the bands aggressive side with its fiery tempo with Saint[The]Sinner vocalist Luke Boyle popping up to add an extra layer of intensity to the track.
Here’s what guitarist and clean vocalist Anthony Chantrey had to say about the EP:
“’Darkness’ as an EP is a statement of the negative influences people can have on each other and ultimately yourself. ‘Darkness,’ the title track, I feel ultimately represents this idea through a message of religion and how it can, in some cases, render people victimised and in turn worse off than they may have been promised or at least led to believe.”
Whilst vocalist Jake Hale added:
“For me ‘Darkness’ is about the internal struggle between my beliefs and faith. The song expresses the way that despite the fact that I long to believe, there is too much suffering in the world for that to be possible. In fact, this song outlines the negative elements of a concept that is supposed to unite the world, but only really creates division.”
For Fans Of: Architects, August Burns Red and Bring Me The Horizon
‘Darkness’ EP by Forever In Depths is released on April 29th.
