IMMENSION’S SELF-TITLED EP TO BE NATIONALLY RELEASED ON MONDAY 7th JANUARY 2013
Flaunting speed slabs of melodic metal and riffs as dense as the basaltic layer, Immension have an incessant intensity and are geared to parade their message to everyone within ear shot.
Born out of Sheffield in South Yorkshire, the very original seeds of Immension were sown over five years ago when founding members, vocalist/guitarist Jake Kearsley and lead axeman Tim Dolan, started to trade riffs with one another. For the next few years Immension struggled, largely due to a series of unreliable members serving as their rhythm section. However, all of this changed last year when tub-thumper, Jonni Sowter, and bassist, Hasan Ahmed, entered the fray and everything finally fell into place for the emerging metal crew.
With a solid line-up in place, the band soon began to play a barrage of shows throughout the country, ripping up stages from London to Leeds, and everywhere in between. Now having honed their live sound, Immension hit the studio to lay down tracks for their self-titled debut EP, and it’s a hidden gem.
The EP takes shape with the pounding riffage of ‘Shadow Of Yourself’; a potent opener for the Yorkshire metallers, the track suitably displays the four piece’s impressive dual prong guitar attack and dynamism. Next, the high velocity fret-flurries and Slayer-esque beatings of ‘Lost & Forgotten’ go straight for the throat, while the slow-burning ‘In Vain’ further highlights the quartet’s guile. Armed with a strong and stout EP, it’s evident that the Sheffield metallers are poised for a heady climb next year.
