Unstoppable North-west sextet ‘Dead Winter’ drop their enticing ‘Erasing Glaciers’ EP through national outlets on Monday 3rd February.
Igniting glowing comparisons to Memphis May Fire, A Day To Remember and Parkway Drive, Dead Winter come at you with powerful guitars, gargantuan choruses and earnest purpose. Dead Winter are quickly picking up the pace and the ascending metallers are poised to be one of the breakthrough bands of 2014.
Formed in 2011 in Blackpool, and featuring Ant Jones (Clean vocals), Laura Russell (Scream vocals), Jamie Townsend (Lead guitars), Martin Worsnip (Rhythm guitars), Danny Dawkins (Drums) and Adam Roberts (Bass), Dead Winter are rapidly taking flight and creating a stir. Soon after their formation, the youthful six-some began work on inking new tunes for their much anticipated debut record. To help make their mark on the scene, the post-hardcore crew honed their sound by notching up shows throughout the north and gaining hearty support in the process.
The Blackpool bruisers are now set to push open the envelope with a reboot of their stunning debut EP ‘Erasing Glaciers’. Serving up six meaty cuts of hardcore amalgamated metal and taking influence from Bring Me The Horizon, Underoath, Oh, Sleeper, and Parkway Drive, Dead Winter produce an explosive record bursting with invention and buoyant intensity, and with esteemed producer Romesh Dodangoda at the helm, you know the production will be top draw. ‘Erasing Glaciers’ kicks off in barbarous fashion with the hammering beatings of ‘Bribe For The Ferryman’ before it rolls into ‘Every Silver Lining’, which deftly highlights the band’s agile use of devastating dynamics. The record’s namesake, ‘Erasing Glaciers’, further drives the six piece’s message home to great effect; Dead Winter are set to rise—catch the UK noise chiefs on tour as they plan a massive onslaught for the early part of 2014.
