‘Heartfelt, passionate and heavy’ is how metalcore six-piece, Her Dying Regret describe their new EP ‘Legacy’ which will be self-released this September 19th.

Following up from their debut EP ‘The Siren’ [2012] which was a dramatic introduction to the Reading based band, ‘Legacy’, recorded at Avenue Studios, Camberley with producer Daniel Kerr shows a new side to the band and the direction they want to go in musically following the release of the first EP.

We want that to be a distant memory and for ‘Legacy’ to be what we’re remembered for”, says guitarist Craig Mayor.

On ‘Legacy’ the lyrical content and vocal style is very different as we have two vocalists providing a new dynamic that allows us to be more creative and versatile, we’ve also taken some elements out of different sub genres of metal to fuse it with our own sound to create something different.

After a haunting bleat, the blistering groundwork of the song is built up by bronzed guitars and passionate drums. The sour, embittered vocal from Scott is sulfuric and  leaching- but the tempered voice from Tom heals and re-crystallizes.  

All the while, a high guitar corkscrews around the central themes. The more we hear of the debauched vocals from Scott – the more we end up enmeshed in chains.

But a smoke-screen of thundering drums – and tangled guitars – create waves of dynamic energy.

These push the song to the final moments … and it is at this point that the number is completely transfigured. Refined – still deformed – but a thing of defiled beauty.
