Driven by a passion for music, Promethium are bringing back old school Metal with a 21st century twist through enigmatic song writing and powerful, energetic live shows.
Promethium is a 5 piece Metal band from Lancaster, England.
Promethium take their influence from the torchbearers of metal music such as Black Sabbath, Metallica, Megadeth and Pantera to develop a signature sound to ignite the eardrums of audiences across the country. Promethium have released 3 studio albums to date. The most recent of which was ‘Faces Of War’ which was released on the 16th March 2018 and is available on all major streaming sites and distributed through
Load 4 Records.
Promethium are the by-product formed from the remaining residue of five band meltdowns in Lancaster. A volatile reaction to the tired Thrash which predominated the cities scene, our five intrepid heroes compounded to serve up Heavy music for the purists of metallurgical alchemy.
Promethium create a tense interaction of classic instrumentation and emotive vocals. Restrained clean guitar tones gently simmer and bring Gary’s raw melodic vocals to a boiling point before they suddenly erupt with distortion and compel the singer to chemically react, overflow and burn the mic. In a controlled condition, and with tasteful, seasoned precision, the drums and bass infuse these opposing elements. The loud, rocking results are Promethium; a great stress relief.
Watch out for them they are likely to be invading your personal space very, very soon.
Between them the band have over 70 years experience of studio, live and promo work and it shows! Their live shows are energetic, unpredictable and most of all entertaining. They hold the stage like they have always belonged there and make it their own.
The long awaited 2018 Follow up to "Origins" is finally here. Its Promethiums heaviest album to date so get some METAL in your life.
Their 2018 album ‘Faces of War’ is available now at Promethiumband.com
