Up and coming Swiss slayers ‘Promethee’ set loose their spanking new video single ‘Life/Less’, out now.
Pitching ‘Born of Osiris’ against ‘Job For A Cowboy’, and merging the melodic death metal craft of ‘Darkest Hour’, Promethee are here to shatter your world with their stunning blend of original modern metal.
Formed in Geneva, Switzerland, Promethee started life back in 2008. The metal upstarts soon began to play shows throughout their native land, and in 2010, the quintet struck out to France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and Hungary, including an influential appearance at the Greenfield Festival playing alongside HIM, Rammstein, The Prodigy and The Dillinger Escape Plan, among others. Not ones to rest on their laurels, the industrious five-some continued to progress and played a successful mini-tour in Canada before releasing their debut EP, which secured creditable praise throughout the UK and mainland Europe.
Last year the band released their debut album “Nothing Happens. Nobody Comes, Nobody Goes” and it helped to redefine the noise-niks’ place as Swiss metal leaders. The record also garnered widespread acclaim in the UK from Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Rocksound, Terrorizer and Big Cheese magazine, and by undertaking rampant European touring and high profile festivals, including the Loudfest 2013 (Heaven Shall Burn, Architects, August Burns Red) and the Aries Festival (Knuckledust, TRC, Cutdown), the band’s stock has firmly risen to a European scale.
Promethee are now continuing their climb with the release of their explosive new single and video ‘Life/Less’, taken from ‘Nothing Happens. Nobody Comes, Nobody Goes’. The single is a powerful slab of ferocious edgy metal that clearly showcases the band’s devastating brilliance. Future festival appearances will follow this summer in support of the release, along with extensive touring of Europe.
