London Heavy Metal Band METASOMA Cover NIRVANA’s ‘Come As You Are’
Excerpt from official Facebook Page:
Metasoma is a Rock/ Heavy Metal band from London and was founded in 2009 by Polish Guitarists Michal ‘’Misiek’’ Sedzielewski (Rhythm guitar) and Voytek Golbiak (Lead guitar). Since its conception, the band has experienced a few lineup changes until 2016 where it has settled on its current members. Proudly featuring the French powerhouse, Hugo Terva (Drums),Ben “Agro“ Spooner from the southwest of England (Bass guitar) and the ever charismatic frontman Vlad A. Iancu hailing from Romania (Vocals).
Metasoma generates music that is considered as a mixture of both American Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. For some, it might even be classified as NU Metal. In any case, many have even gone as far as to compare the group alongside such metal giants as Disturbed and System of a Down or something like mix between Alter Bridge with Pantera.
The characteristics of Metasoma’s sound is generated using a combination of heavy guitar riffs, melodic vocals, unique and versatile growling, low and crushing bass lines and precise groovy drumming.
Metasoma’s live shows are monstrous! There, you’ll find a great sound driven by passionate musicians who share a vibrant stage presence together; all with the focused intent of creating and maintaining a visceral and powerful connection with the crowd.
Metasoma has played many gigs throughout the UK; starting with a mini tour in 2010, through to gigs at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London and the Underworld in Camden Town. More notable ventures, as of late, include two tours of Poland. The first of which a nine show headline tour in ten days, opening the Juwenalia festival in Lublin. The other a small tour supporting the critically acclaimed Polish giants, Night Mistress. Metasoma has also performed on the Sunday headline slot of the Breaking Bands Festival 2017.
Metasoma’s awards include winning the Cooltura Festival in 2010, getting through to the semi-finals of the “Live and Unsigned” competition and even progressing to the national final of the Global Battle of the bands in 2011/2012. Metasoma has also supported bands like Sanctuary, Skreamer and Night Mistress to name but a few…
Metasoma’s releases include two EP’s, ‘Metal Erosion’ and ‘Dead Happy’, releasing later the widely praised album ‘Mirror of Life’ in 2014. It was this album that featured a more cultivated signature sound, taking the band forward. After three years of writing and contending with lineup changes, the band looks more fit than ever to release something after seemingly lying dormant. A video release of a new track titled “Just Breathe“ is due for a September 2017 release with its EP counterpart soon to follow. With these releases, Metasoma is hell bent on providing a deeply satisfying and interesting taste of what it has to offer once more. An album is being discussed for 2018 release…
