Formed during their college days in 2011 and coming at you from Yeovil, Apherium soon forged a sturdy bond and quickly put out their debut album The Cycle the following year. The album was a steep learning curve for the quartet yet they soon discovered how to better cultivate their sound and reflect on their song writing. The melodic metallers reshaped their set during 2013 and began to spread their wings racking up a series of successful shows in London, Midlands, South Wales and throughout the South West. The band then bunkered down in preparation for their new EP, entitled Neoteric, which is slated for a reboot this September and is rammed with sonic sledgehammer fists-in-the-air choruses and explosive rhythms that promise to melt your ears.
The EP propels to life with the driving opener New Light which boasts duelling guitar lines, magnificently layered vocals and progressive phrasing. The pounding groove and dynamic Silver Tongues then comes over you with soaring riffs and a colossal refrain that will hang in the air for eons. The record soon presses on with Angels Of Our Nature which twists and effortlessly gleams with true potency before the brilliance of their past single Shadows attacks your senses. Lastly, Rise Again closes the EP, balancing melodic hooks with razor sharp riffery, as the cut draws proceedings to a fitting conclusion. With the national launch of the EP lined up for September and the foursome ready to hit the UK with widespread touring, look out for extensive shows soon to be announced for the remainder of the year.
Neoteric is set for release on September 22 2014.
