Haema are an industrial-influenced experimental groove metal four-piece based in Northamptonshire, UK.
Recently, the band has signed to metal label, Sliptrick Records, who will release the quartet’s debut EP, ‘Insurrection’, which was recorded at Initiate Audio & Media by Neil Hudson (Krysthla/Gutworm). The was released on October 31st to critical acclaim.
Formed in 2015, Haema encapsulate the essense of modern metal that likes to combine various styles of heavy music together. The four-piece hones in the heaviness and ferocity of groove metal, providing the crunchiest of hooks. This is balanced out by the infectiously catchy hooks reminiscent of the nu metal scene in the early 2000s. All the while topped off by the a layer of electronic sounds and machine gun like precision found in industrial.
Listen to the Hypnotically heavy track ‘Two Minds’ below.
“Raw emotion, down-tuned riffs and liberal use of electronics. Spoken-word vocals, abrasive growls and screams, crushing downbeat riffs and cauterised grooves capable of shaking the ground of any rock/metal club night”
Think of Fear Factory, American Head Charge and Machine Head were chucked into a blender, there’s a definite nod to the early 00s sound that ditched guitar solos in favour of raw emotion, down-tuned riffs and liberal use of electronics. Within two years as a band, Haema have crafted a unique and individual sound that has been compared to the likes of the aforementioned bands also mixed with Tool and Rage Against The Machine overtones.
The band are working on new material and on schedule to return to the studio later this year to record their debut album due for release early 2018.
Let’s see what Jay Vox has to say about Vocalzone!
“I’ve been using Vocalzone now for about 3-4 years, Vocalzone is the only product I’ve used that actually works well for me. It’s one of the main things on my touring list and they’re always there with me in the studio.”
