Biography

United Kingdom (2008 – present)

To survive amid the wild and ever-changing environs of the modern metal scene, staying power is an absolutely essential characteristic. While many of today’s biggest (and most shamelessly hyped) bands are already treading water and sounding like yesterday’s news, Sacred Mother Tongue are standing on the brink of a major breakthrough as they prepare to unleash their glorious second studio album Out Of The Darkness.

A versatile and technically gifted group of devoted musicians, the current Sacred Mother Tongue line-up have been together since 2008 and have already established themselves as one of the most powerful and convincing bands that the UK scene has to offer. With charismatic vocalist Darrin South leading the charge and revered king of the shredders Andy James on guitar, they could hardly fail to grab the attention of rock and metal fans across the country. This they have achieved with ease, touring relentlessly and making memorable appearances at several major festivals along the way, not to mention support slots with the legendary likes of Anthrax and Fear Factory. The band released their debut full-length The Ruin Of Man back in 2009, garnering widespread praise for its thrilling blend of brutish, state-of-the-art riffing, soaring vocal hooks and James’ fret-melting solos.

    When you listen to songs like Seven, The Man you Tried to Hide, Evolve/Become and Believe, it is just absolutely fucking crazy how they didn't become a massive band. I am still heartbroken that they are no longer here :(

    Thanks to YouTube, I just found SMT and "A Light Will Shine." Killer riffs, fantastic vocals, inspiring lyric. "Only I can save me" has been stuck in my head for 2 days now. Looking forward to April 15th!

    Andy James is already a genius in his own way. The "uber-shredder" from Reading proves musicians don't all have to be from the same part of the world as their bandmates. SMT are originally from my home town of Northampton.
