Full EP stream: Myth of a Life – Erinyes
Posted by ChristopherMammal
To win a three-year contract from a big label like Sleaszy Rider Records, you have to be pretty good at what you do. Don’t take my word on that. No, do take my word. I’m the expert, right? I also do brain surgery in my spare time, and I invented the Higgs boson for those physicists at CERN to discover. Myth of a Life is signed up to release a full-length album. I trust they’ll do more after that during their three Sleaszy years, and I shan’t be in the least surprised if their contract is extended. They attracted the record company with their style of melodic death metal on their self-funded debut EP, “Erinyes”. It took about a year for the band to put the EP together at their base in Sheffield, England. The vocalist, Phil’Core’ D, says all the band members contributed to create “an amalgamation of the dark melodies of melodic death metal and the ferocious riffs of thrash metal.” The band started as the brainchild of Takanori Shono, previously guitarist in the Japanese melodic death band Impenetrability. The current line-up is completed by Damiano Porcelli (ex-Golem) on drums, Charlie Power on bass and Dave Warren on guitars. I played “Erinyes” for two other people who love melodic death as much as I do – Tiny Tiny Cakey Kitten, who ghost-writes everything for me when he isn’t snacking on moths that fly into the office; and my little buddy Simphiwe, 11 years old, who has become probably the youngest and most ardent Zulu metalhead. They both thoroughly approve of Myth of a Life, so even if you don’t take my word, take theirs. Then check out the band on Facebook.
