Nottingham metallers reveal new song
The Five Hundred are the latest in technical, melodic metal from the rough streets of Nottingham, UK. Dealing in an array of down-tuned riffs and barbed hooks performed on beastly 8-string guitars, the band unleash an avalanche of crushing technical groove and belligerent aggression, broken up by some searing leads, haunting vocal melodies and devastating, earth-shaking breakdowns.
The ear-rattling outfit have just released a new music video for the song ‘Winters’, taken from their debut EP.
You can watch the video that was premiered over at Metal Hammer Germany and Heavy Mag Australia here:
“The track is about the miserable and negative people that try to bring you down to their level.
The lyrics go:
“The winters of your grief
Shut off that sound it’s deafening
Ripping away belief
A worry that weighs a ton…”
Their first EP (released in November 2015) received rave reviews across the metal press, with their debut single premiering on Kerrang! Radio, The Radio 1 Rock Show, and playing on Kerrang TV and Scuzz. They are due to release a second EP in 2016, with a full album to follow in early 2017 (all released produced by Justin Hill – SiKth, Heart Of A Coward, Betraying The Martyrs, etc.)
