Biography

A dark star in a sea of monotonously predictable heavy bands, Medeia has stuck to one clear objective since its founding in 2002: creating a fresh, brutal death metal sound rich in content and uncompromising in nature. Solely positive reviews for their self-produced and now sold-out debut album “Quantum Holocaust: World Domination” and the gutwrenching follow-up label release “Cult” stand as a loud testament to the success of that mission, hailing the band as the “new king of Finnish death metal”[1] and stating Medeia “leaves no doubt in anyone’s mind which band is rising to be one of the flagships of Finnish metal”[2].

Following the success of their label debut in September 2008, Medeia began working on the final installment of their thematically twisted trilogy, dubbing it “Abandon All”. Though lyrically picking up the tale of nuclear devastation from where “Cult” left off, musically Medeia has again progressed by leaps and bounds, embracing whole new elements in their impassioned brand of aural battery and ensuring it sounds nothing short of exceptional. Cellos blend seamlessly with crushing signature riffs, ethereal choirs float over guttural screams, brooding piano melodies and disquieting samples go head-to-head while the pace is set by a furious drum assault making for an irresistably intriguing listen designed to beat you senseless yet leave you gasping for more.

Signed to the prominent Fullsteam Records and working in close co-operation with Fullsteam Agency and German Avocado Booking

    Just discovered these guys; so fucking great. Needed this album, as I always get an itch for progressive death metal this time of year...

    There's some deathcorish stuff in their sound, but wouldn't still call them deathcore. The alternative/death metal that's put as their genre in Metal Archives seems a bit closer to truth to me. Anyways, given the new one it's first spin, not really sure what to make of it. It's good, but only time will tell if it will match the awesomity of the last two.

    It's definitely there, just isn't typical deathcore. It's not like you even listen to any deathcore to begin with to make a statement like that no offense.

    This is really cool. It's like a bunch of Finns teaching americans how to do non-sucky deathcore. [2] The fact that they've got fucking Niinimaa singing is a nice touch.
