It’s album launch time at The Craufurd Arms this Saturday night, when Milton Keynes’ metallic monsters Seethe unleash their newbie, Rise From Ruin.
This new slab of sound follows on from 2012s debut Through Conviction.
“It feels great to be releasing the album,” drummer Matt told us.
“It has been quite a long process from writing to recording, and one that we’ve deliberately tried not to rush, to take our time with.
“We also decided to take on the challenge of recording and mixing this ourselves,” with Acle Kahney from TesseracT once more brought in to show his skills at mastering.
“...he did a killer job!” Matt declared.
“We have worked hard at strengthening our metallic sound, and this is definitely the heaviest Seethe record to date, so we’re all very excited to release it and for everyone to hear it.
So far as the lyrics are concerned, you’ll not be surprised by the lack of boy meets girl flowered-up stuff here.
This is Seethe we are talking about.
“...it’s about a lot of personal frustrations we have with how the world works,”Matt says.
“For example, a song we have called Final Cry touches on the subject of war, a song called Crooked Cross is about religion, and False Hope is about betrayal.
“Although the lyrics concern quite negative subjects, as always we have approached them in a positive manner.
“They don’t just explain what is going on in the world, but what can actually be done to prevent these things from happening, and how we can act on these matters as individuals and make a change.”
The band will follow the album launch by gigging “as much as we possibly can.
“We have a few weekenders and mini tours currently in the process of being organised across the UK, and also have plans to hit up Europe later in the year.”
But first, a chance to hear the new stuff in the live and pick up a copy of Rise From Ruin for yourselves.
They’ve got some cracking new T-shirts for sale on the night too.
Support is coming from Sacramental and Crossburner and tickets are a snip, at a fiver.
Get ‘em on the doors from 7.30pm.
