Check-out the Devil Sold His Soul YouTube channel.

Crushingly heavy, darkly atmospheric, emotionally poignant, and never less than utterly enthralling, Devil Sold His Soul combine devastating force and haunting melody in a unique and involving blend that is as hypnotic as it is moving. In the eight years since their inception (Location: London, England / Year: 2004), the band have inspired a passionate and devoted following in the UK underground, touring relentlessly and exercising an extreme level of quality control over their musical output, every release maintaining their signature sound while marking a profound leap forward from that which preceded it.

“We never set out with the intent to be different,” states sampler Paul Kitney, who alongside guitarists Rick Chapple and Jonny Renshaw and original drummer Tom Harriman formed the initial musical core of the band, the four having previously collaborated in the lauded Mahumodo. “We have a wide range of influences, and we just wanted to make heavy music that brought together certain elements that we thought would be really cool but no one else seemed to be doing.”

It didn’t take long for the fledgling band to flesh out their line up with the addition of bassist Iain Trotter and versatile vocalist Ed Gibbs, whose banshee shriek and sky-searing cinematic tones combined with his charismatic stage presence make him one of the most mesmerizing front men in metal.

    Интересная история получается. Часто вижу что при обсуждении музыки народ не пытается привести контраргументы, типа на самом деле у %band_name% есть такие-то достоинства. Нееет, наша тактика заключается в том, кто больше польёт другого каками. Ребята, так же получается тухлый махач.

    "Которые набренькать одной рукой не касаясь ладов можно." - ты про свой любимый эммюрьчик, чудо? Забавно все-таки слышать кукареканье за "простоту" от защекана, не умеющего в пост-митол, хи-хи.

    О, ожили ценители дохуя концептуальной музыки, состоящей из 8минутных высеров. Которые набренькать одной рукой не касаясь ладов можно. Такое говнище сочинять - себе билет в первый вагон в сторону музыкального ада выписывать. Педота негодует - наше говнецо обосрали.

    Говно однообразное для дегенератов, которые ни сами играть не умеют, и никакого представления о нормальной музыке и мелодике не имеют. Однообразный кал по 10 минут с завываниями, бесталанное претенциозное дерьмище, поклонники такие же копрофаги, как и сами "музыканты", производящие ЭТО. Учащиеся первогодки в музыкальной школе играют лучше и интереснее, если дать им те же инструменты.

    New EP is solid [3] Keep You disappointed me a bit though, I have nothing against the cleans but I definitely think it would have turned out even better if they combined screams with the new vocals.

    Is miss Ed, really, but Belong/Betray blow me away. Seriously great job. Emotional and beautiful as always. This, along with PBTTs Keep You are, in my oppinion two best records this year.
