Released: 2012, N/A
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team
Deprevate are a London based Band who have the elements of Rock/Metal and Thrash in their new awaited EP Release. Their self-titled EP was recorded in August 2011, which saw the band enter the studio with UK producer Matt Hyde (Slipknot, Fightstar, Bullet For My Valentine, Funeral for a Friend, Gallows, Machine Head, Ash, Trivium and more) to produce this self titled 5 track EP, which is due for release in Spring 2012.
From the first track ‘Element of Truth’ you instantly hear the great production and talent of this band, with each member standing out and sounding flawless. They have a powerful sound and were heavier than I first expected, with some great impressive guitar riffs but using Richard Sumner’s clean[ish] vocals throughout, which does work really well with their sound.
The band was formed by vocalist and guitarist Richard and Jack [lead guitar] in 2009, after they were studying at The Brit School and they soon recorded an initial three track demo entitled ‘Our War’.
After a line up change in 2010 they found TechMusicSchools alumni Amar Sharma who took over on bass and they filmed a music video at The O2 Arena, London to help promote their demo. This got a great response and quickly got them a fan-base which soon followed to radio airplay on many independent radio shows.
This then led them to the very first Hard Rock Hell Road Trip to Ibiza, playing alongside bands such as Grand Magus, Evile and Skindred. It was a chance meeting at one of their London shows though which brought them a new drummer; in the form of Australian powerhouse Michael Robson. With their line-up now secured it is no wonder these guys are doing so great with many gigs being played around the UK, which also included an acoustic set at Sonisphere UK.
Each track is powerful and most defiantly catchy with raw breakdowns which will appeal to a larger metal genre as it’s hard to categorise this band, which is a good thing these days. It is great to see such a new young founded band sound so great, with tracks that will appeal to many and with a sound and power that deserve to be heard!
