Label: Load4 Records
Tonight on this channel: PROMETHIUM from Lancaster, UK! A Groove Metal band formed in 2007. Untypical for a Groove Metal band is the approach on ‘Revisions’ it is an acoustic record but that rocks as I am a sucker for acoustic stuff as it showcases the vocals in a different way. Before I further indulge in this let us check out the press text from the band’s Facebook page: “PROMETHIUM take their influence from the torch-bearers of Metal music such as BLACK SABBATH, METALLICA, MEGADETH and PANTERA to develop a signature sound to ignite the eardrums of audiences across the country. They pride themselves on consistently delivering a passionate, high intensity show. PROMETHIUM has released three studio albums to date. The most recent of which was ‘Faces Of War’ which was released on the 16th March 2018 and is available on all major streaming sites and was distributed through Load 4 Records.”
Funnily at first, checking out the stuff they normally release, I thought the band was very aggressive and rough (which is correct considering their other outputs) when listening to their acoustic attempt I get a strong STONE SOUR vibe here and there (dig it). Steve Graham’s voice is really nice and sometimes reminds me of Toby Jepsen (LITTLE ANGELS, DIO PRINCIPLES), Lovett-Horn on guitar duty is sounding really good. The first thing to notice is that the productions sounds fantastic, crisp, clear and just perfect for the acoustic version of their songs. It is also audible that these guys are fans of ICED EARTH and PANTERA.
Conclusion: If you are in for heartfelt music that is narrated mostly in sad and dark lyrics (I am) you should check this out immediately.
