Nottingham based tech metallers, The Five Hundred have unveiled a lyric video for ‘The Rush’. The first video that is taken from their EP, ‘The Veil. The video shows gruesome, horror movie-like imagery, including a creepy dolls head and bloody knives. You can find the video at the bottom of the page.
Guitarist Mark Byrne says: “It’s a tale of euphoric misanthropy and hauntingly dark despair. The music effortlessly combines furious guitar work and painfully beautiful melody with spine-snapping breakdowns and depraved, sadistic lyrics.”
Over the last year, The Five Hundred have been writing their latest EP, ‘The Veil’, a five-track follow-up to their 2015 EP, ‘Winters’. ‘The Veil’, which was produced by Justin Paul Hill, who is known for Working with metal bands Sikth, Heart of a Coward and Betraying The Martyrs, will be released on April 21st, 2017 through London Road Records.
To promote the launch of this EP, The Five Hundred have been announced as support for Deathcore outfit, Carnifex on their tour through eastern Europe, where the band will be heading to Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Russia. A Night In The Abyss will also be featured on the tour. See the poster for more details. A tour around the United Kingdom in support of the EP is yet to be announced, though The Five Hundred played their first show of the year in Brighton at The Green Door Store on April 1st.
To date, the band have made appearances at UK Tech Fest, Mammothfest and Macmillan Fest along with two tours around the UK. The Nottingham men have shared stages with notable names in metal such as Tesseract, Mushroomhead, All Shall Perish, Napalm Death and Fear Factory on these tours.
