The Brighton-based metallic hardcore quintet have delivered their first album...but how is it?
Having cut their teeth on the underground circuit both in the UK and over in the US, Brighton-based Fathoms have fine-tuned a sound that makes their debut album stand up and be counted. Laying down an early marker with the hardcore barrage of ‘Graveyards’ and ‘Deathwish’, much of ‘Lives Lived’ continues in the same vein, all the while toying with the melodic (‘Dilated Dreaming’) and metallic (‘The Weight Of The World’) strains of a genre that’s forever moving the goal posts. Dirty, dangerous, downright destructive and still only a debut, Fathoms are doing much more than just treading water here.
We reckon Fathoms are a band you need to know about, which is exactly why we stuck 'em in RS198 as one of the 59 bands you need in your life right now. You can order the issue to your door, download it or pick it up from UK stores TODAY.
