... are a trio hailing from the fairly un-grim wastes of Colchester in the east of England. Chris, Simon and Oli have all been plugging away in various bands such as Meadows, Mother Sky, and Three Thrones (which are all still going concerns) before getting together in 2013 to jam what could be considered to be black metal, with its scathing, evil atmosphere, fused to a belligerently hardcore punk backbone, topped off with elements of screamo. Heavy, devastating and yet melodic. Lyrics are concerned with human relationships with the natural world, environmental degradation, loss, grief and wolves. Their interests include King Diamond, Black Sabbath, and playing shows. For fans of early Ulver, His Hero Is Gone and Wolves In The Throne Room.
A BRIBE FOR THE FERRYMAN
A Bribe For The Ferryman are a four piece thrash/melodic death metal band from Colchester. The band has brought a unique blend of old school thrash, together with some serious groove tones, topped off with seething vocals. Band members Rob, JD, Chris and Twitch formed the band late 2015 and have been gigging relentlessly on the East Anglian scene ever since. Raised on the eighties staple of Iron Maiden, Slayer and Metal Church, the bands influences also extend to Carcass, Sepultura and early In Flames. With the imminent release of their debut EP, the band is looking to make a lasting impression on 2017!
