BASICK RECORDS are pleased to announce the signing of one of the UK's most promising progressive Metal bands, GEHENNA VII VII VII
In a time where UK Metal bands are two-a-penny but quality prospects are few and far between, GEHENNA VII VII VII stands as a genuinely unique proposition in an increasingly stagnant marketplace...
Forming in 2006 and focusing on solid song writing that provides precision rather than flashiness, they have quickly forged a reputation as a fearsome live band, gaining slots alongside established acts such as ARCHITECTS and BRING ME THE HORIZON, as well as being handpicked to support HATEBREED by the bands front man Jamey Jasta, subsequently destroying a sold out Oxford Carling Academy.
After a recent change in personnel, the band decided to knuckle down and retreat to the practice space in order to produce their most progressive material to date… Where once there was raw fury now stands controlled aggression; each member showing a greater understanding of their instruments and in turn branching into fierce, epic territories that built on their roots rather than severing them.
The newly recorded and self produced debut EP 'Guardians', is the utterly devastating end product of all that hard work... Look out for it hitting the shelves and digital stores on November 24th 2008. Pre-Orders are up in the store now.
BASICK RECORDS are chuffed to announce the signing of Brighton, UK based tech metal upstarts, SHY OF THE DEPTH (www.myspace.com/shyofthedepth).
Combining technicality and groove with influences from the likes of SIKTH and PANTERA, the band recently recorded their debut EP with WellerHill Productions (Justin Hill and Dan Weller, formerly of SIKTH) after a direct invitation from the pair.
Although a relatively new band, SHY OF THE DEPTH are already building up a solid reputation by confirming upcoming shows with the likes of MESHUGGAH (Thursday 4th September) and a full UK Tour with MALEFICE throughout September '08.
Check out the BASICK MySpace page to hear brand new material from the EP.
And you can also check out the bands promo video by hitting up either of our Vimeo or YouTube channels.
The self titled debut EP will be released October 13th 2008.
