‘UNPREDICTABLE AND INTELLIGENT’ – RINGMASTER REVIEW
New FATHOMS EP 'COLD YOUTH' out September 30th
Pushing far beyond their roots on the South Coast of England, Fathoms are a band with big ambitions and even bigger tunes.
Having already toured Europe, the UK and the US extensively (and largely off their own backs), this insanely driven melodic hardcore/metal outfit have carved out quite a reputation on the international scene.
Since their formation at the tail-end of 2010 the five-piece, led by charismatic frontman Max Campbell, have torn down venues around the globe, recorded an EP with Tom Denney (For The Fallen Dreams, A Day To Remember) in Florida, and shared stages with A Hero A Fake, Legend, Set Your Goals, Deez Nutz and Napoleon, barely seeing their own beds along the way. Impressive stuff, considering they’re still only in their early twenties.
Since day one this lot have been unwilling to settle for second best, even going so far as to starting their own booking agency to find the right tours, and doing everything in their power to get the message out there. They’re equally at home playing alongside out and out hardcore acts and more metal-leaning bands, with a beguiling technical edge to their music and plenty of blunt-force energy. At the end of the day Fathoms are all about making great music and great memories, and the last couple of years have been rich in both. The best is still to come, however.
The band’s free-for-download EP ‘Transitions’ received rave reviews from the UK rock press, and with their latest, as yet-unnamed new release representing a major step forward, they’ll prove a force to be reckoned with throughout 2013.
