Acherontia Styx - Shadow & Flame - (Melodic Death Metal) Haling from Northern England, Acherontia Styx bring multiple creative influences to the table. Their core sound is steeped in 90s Groove and Death Metal , with individual members bringing a host of external flavors into the mix including PROG, GRIND and FUNK . The result is a melodic and emotional Metal masterpiece laden with catchy hooks, ferocious rhythms and solos that are bordering on genius. The band launch a 3 pronged lyrical attack on the listener, with vocal and writing duties shared between Grant, Jake and Paul, over compositions primarily written by the phenomenal writing team of Adam Ashbridge and Paul Taylor.
For the month of July in 2019, the band destroyed the polls at The Battle Of The Bands on Metal Devastation Radio , gathering 6,738 votes from fans all over the world! Check it out HERE!
Acherontia Styx did an interview with The Thunderhead Show in 2019 which can be listened to HERE!
The follow up to last years acclaimed debut "Your Possible Pasts" has already generated a wealth of stunning press comments and media support following the singles "As Above So Below", a brutal slice of Old School Death Metal mastery, and "Blackened Serenade", a highly emotional Melo-Death showcase of the bands depth in talent. The addition of these final tracks to the press folder marks the completion of the album, after production stalled due to recent world events.
