Words That Burn Release New Single “Before The Fall”

Attention metal heads! Dundalk-based metallers Words That Burn released their new single “Before The Fall” via BandCamp over the weekend. And it kicks serious ass.

For me personally, the song brings the likes of Primordial to mind. The excellent production showcases the band as a mature and highly-polished unit with plenty of edge and energy expertly performed. Catchy guitar hooks, tight as hell bass and drums, excellent lyrics and a savage vocal performance make this latest release the bands finest output to date. I love the fabulous contrasting middle eight for the well-considered, layered vocal harmonies- the lower register of Ronan’s vocal gets me every time.

Download the song at the link here: BEFORE THE FALL | Words That Burn. Name your price! It’s free if you want it to be!

The accompanying video was released this evening on YouTube- excellent work! Check it out below:

 

Their previous album Praey is also available on BandCamp to download- name your price: PRAEY | Words That Burn. Also awesome merch is available here: Home / Words That Burn Shop.

The band’s next major gig is at PhilFest 2014 in Fibbers, Parnell St, Dublin (Sunday the 29th of June)- a 2-day heavy metal event with a fantastic lineup for a mere €5 per day- you’d be bonkers to miss it!

Between Horizons Launch Debut E.P

Attention metal heads!!!

2014 starts with an almighty BANG! with the long-awaited independent release of Dundalk-based heavy metal band Between Horizons self-titled debut E.P. The band released their astounding three-track E.P of original music this afternoon through BandCamp.

The four-piece band are fronted by vocalist Lauren Murphy who hails from Monaghan. Ms Murphy is no stranger to Ireland’s gigging scene with an impressive string of gigs ranging from rock, jazz, acoustic and beyond under her belt. Her vocal performances are always mind-blowing as she commands the full attention of her audience in any venue, large or small. Lauren successfully combines a unique elegance, power, emotion and flawless musicianship in every performance. She is also a passionate songwriter and eminently accustomed to the studio environment.

The Artist. The Rock Star. THE Lauren Murphy.

The band are local accomplished and seasoned musicians- Stephen Hughes (previously of Valediction) on guitar, Shane Piper on bass (User Illusion) and Jay Ruddy (Subjected Reality) on drums. The trio of musicians make a sheer wall of sound, an absolute force to be reckoned with!

Between Horizons are relatively new to the Irish music scene having formed only 18 months ago but already have brought their tremendous metalcore sound to reputable venues including Whelans, Fibbers and The Brewery (Monaghan). The band have also played in various venues in Dundalk and Omagh.
