PROMETHEE - SWISS SLAYERS PRIME DEBUT UK RELEASE!
PROMETHEE Enterprising metal quintet ’Promethee’ emerge and release their self-titled debut EP, through Bad Mood Records and all major digital outlets from 4th July 2011.
Promethee pull from an array of influences that stem from noise-king contemporaries such as ’The Black Dahlia Murder’ and ’Job For A
Cowboy’, through to the likes of US melodic death metal combo ’Darkest Hour’. Inspired by their predecessors, Promethee have cultivated their own highly addictive sound that is venomous, heavy, downright aggressive and ultimately engaging.
Originally founded in Geneva, Switzerland back in 2006 by three lifelong friends, Ludo, Nils and Elri, the youthful trio began to form foundations and recruited Josh and Mathieu in 2008 to suitably complete the line-up. The fiery five-some then started to cut their teeth for the next two years through delivering a highly impressive, not to mention sweat-drenched, cluster of shows in just about every fleapit in Switzerland. During 2010 the band continuously toured throughout France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Hungary, including a prestigious appearance at the Greenfield Festival playing alongside Rammstein, The Prodigy, HIM, and The Dillinger Escape Plan among others. Never ones to rest on their laurels, the Swiss metallers continued their rise by securing a mini-tour in Canada before heading into the studio to lay down tracks for their début EP.
Promethee are now loaded with their self-titled debut EP which features five full-blooded cuts. The record is ram packed with steamroller riffs, deeply-growled vocals and blast-beat rhythms that will pummel the listener into submission from the get-go. With further European and North American touring planned to coincide with their debut album launch set for later this year, the band are all primed to break into the UK and beyond!
