Band: Between The Screams
Album: Embryo EP
Label: Self Released
Year: 2008

05.Time (The Undoing)

Drawing on a wide range of influences, from post-rock to progressive metal to electronica, Between The Screams have seamlessly blend ambient, sprawling electronics with atmospheric experimental metal.

Like Mahumodo battling Deftones with the crème of the British progressive metal scene refereeing, Southend’s Between the Screams have spent the last year honing a sound as cinematic and expansive as it is heavy. Shows supporting the likes of Devil sold his soul, Latitudes, Humanfly, Astrohenge and Atlantis have seen the band gain favourable reviews in press such as Rocksound and airtime on the Radio1 Rock show. A Rocksound/KBY show at Camden’s Barfly in December 07 set the band up perfectly for the year ahead, gaining them a 9/10 live review and KBY Band of the month. In early 08 the debut ‘Embryo’ was completed with ‘Mark Williams’ (DSHS, *shels, Mahumodo, Sikth) at Criterion/Battery Studios in London, following on from this BTS will record their debut album in September this year with Jonny Renshaw of Devil Sold His Soul manning the desk.

It is hoped the cerebral, off kilter structures, combined with ambient electronic passages, crunching heaviness and soaring melodies will make a welcome, and needed impact on a music scene engulfed by underwhelming, underperforming emo or hardcore bands eager for fame.

*Thanx to Terry from Between The Screams for sending me this demo and the band for supporting this blog.
