Burials are a 5-pronged musical juggernaut hailing from Bath, combining a whole range of influences from the melodic brutality of Architects to the bleak ambience of Devil Sold His Soul, to name a couple.

Burials are looking to make an immediate impact on the UK metal and hardcore scene with the release of their debut, self-produced EP "Tired Arms", which is available for free download. The six-track beast, clocking in at just less than half an hour, will leave you pumped and wanting more.

Although relatively new to the live music scene, Burials have already impressed audiences with their tight set. Liam Kavanagh’s intense vocal display is captivating. Dan Carter’s virtuosic guitar playing is complimented brilliantly by the solid rhythmic playing of George Lever and Daryl Barrett-Cross on guitar and bass respectively, while Rob Needham ferociously hammers the drums at the back of the stage. Burials also like to make the most out of samples in their live set, with strings, sub-drops and jarring stutter-synths all adding to the vehemence of their live show.

Not content with the massive wave of re-hashed generic metal bands that are emerging, Burials are attempting something that isn’t seen often enough by complimenting heavy riffs with lots of melody and throwing ambient clean guitar passages alongside them. They may be new to the UK metal and hardcore scene, but Burials are an exciting prospect.
