The Skinny: Not even two more weeks until the European release of hopeisnowhere by England’s heaviest upcomers Lay Siege. Time for another new track, “Souldrinker” from their Lifeforce Records debut.
Hailing from the heart of England – the Midlands – Lay Siege create their own distinctive heavy sound. The Northampton quartet mixes core-elements with post- and sludge-metal to achieve riff-orientated songs with heart and depth. Formed in January 2010, Lay Siege debuted with mini-album Obolus in 2012. The well received six track EP was noted for standing out because of its fresh sound and approach. This is something the quartet continues to address on its first full length album and debut for Lifeforce Records – hopeisnowhere.
