TEIRESIAS PROMOTIONS PRESENTS:
Post metal/Progressive metal
- Agonist 2009
Following the success of their critically acclaimed debut album "Agonist" in 2009, and after a run of successful tours and crushing live shows, LATITUDES , the quintet from Hertfordshire wasted no time on realising their second full-length, "Individuation" in 2012.
Latitudes have played alongside the likes of Carcass, Baroness, Minsk, A Storm of Light, *Shels and many more.
With intoxicating vocals, heavy but melodic melodies, mixed with harmonic riffs, Latitudes will make you shiver.
"Latitudes are a band who clearly knows what they are doing. The new album ‘Individuation’ is well written, engrossing and hauntingly atmospheric. This is the sort of record that you can listen to on a rainy morning as you look out the window and have it compliment the dreariness perfectly.
Adam Symonds eerie vocal contributions are first heard here on track two ‘Imitation Ruin’. Symonds vocals glide amidst the styling of Thom Yorke (Radiohead) and Tommy Rogers (Between the Buried and Me), and are nothing short of intoxicating. In track three, ‘Vortice of Malady’, we hear a very heavy and moody passage, but around the four minute point, some incredibly beautiful and meaningful melodies and harmonies combine to let you hear right into the bands soul. The piano sound that has been captured on the song ‘Metabolic Pathways’ is not only pure sounding and tear-inducing, but the band have made it sound old and roomy which adds to the width of the track.
Latitudes have written an album that demands more than one listen and you should give it just that. ‘Individuation’ could be filed away as another post metal album but that would be a mistake because these guys have more to offer than you might think.

Since the dawn of the first galaxies the voice of MORKOBOT resounded solemn over the saturated atmospheres of the planets in evolution. Dominator of the magnetic strengths and ancestral regulator of the conscience flows, Morkobot has returned to the Earth through his three messengers LIN, LAN, LON brutally subdued to his will. On our planet MORKOBOT manifests himself through sonic experimentations that humans call music. Morkobot pervades the darkened minds of LIN, LAN, LON conducting their notes in sadistic consequential deliriums. Come to feed you with the supreme verb!
‘Isn’t that scene where Spinal Tap all emerge on stage with each member pounding a bass guitar while David St. Hubbins preaches some long, hard, and not to mention meaningful, truths about the woman with the ‘Big Bottom’ just completely hilarious! Italian instro-doomers Morkobot’s set-up is kind of like that, but without the “bun cakes”, “mud flaps” or indeed any lyrics at all. Plus they have bigger chops. Composed using just two basses and a drum kit, their fourth record ‘Morbo’ is a genre-rattling mystery mobile ride through some way off-kilter rhythmic vortexes’

Heavy-delic / Doom
BRIGHT CURSE EP 2012
Bright Curse story starts in June 2012 in London. Their first EP was produced by JB Pilon, at "Rock of London Studio", and then mastered by Brad Boatwright (Portland, Oregon) who worked on the recent reissue of the monolithic Sleep's ‘Dopesmoker’. They have played with Grifter, Black Moth and Enos in the UK, played in France and Switzerland and recently with Naam in Geneva.
In the band’s own words: ‘Deep, dark, hypnotic and addictive’
‘The perfect balance between groove-laden heavy tones and introspective and inspiring musical driftings. These guys are like the flawless children of Vitus and Sungrazer’- The Heavy Chronicles
‘Moody, groovy and dark. Bright Curse are like a carnivorous plant, their thunderous bass and thick guitar attack expelling a stench like rotten flesh, pulling back the leaves of heavy during the verse to put those brightly colored vocals on display to attract its victims’ - The Paranoid Music Blog
‘Bright Curse are collectors, nay, cultivators of moments, creating sparse aural vistas of drifting spinning voids as a backdrop for splatters of imploding spiral galaxies collapsing in towards irresistibly heavy centres’ - Sludge Lord
