Serving up a flurry of technical riffs, stout breakdowns and melodic, yet aggressive vocal lines, Londoners Decrypted are here to etch their mark. The multi-cultural metallers will release their explosive new single ‘Equinox Of Eternal Embers’ on Friday 29th September.
Decrypted are a vastly dynamic and culturally diverse unit. Although the group now reside in London, Martin Luczynski (guitar) and Rafal Siek (bass) originally hail from Poland, alongside Ricardo Almeida (guitar/backing vocals) who is a Portuguese national, while Vincent Labelle (drums) was born in France. Vocalist Steve Kerr is the only member of the band actually born in England.
Harnessing their unique beginnings and varied backgrounds, the quintet have poured their diversity into their music, creating a sound that is heavy, aggressive, technical, and unique.
The original concept of the band was dreamt up in Poland by guitarist Martin Luczynski. Compelled to move to London in pursuit of a better life, Martin wouldn’t give up on his dream and immediately started searching for suitable members. In 2013, an early incarnation of the band was formed initially in a small living room in the East End of London, with no more than a digital drum kit, a guitar and a glut of inspiration.
Jump forward to 2016, and the five-piece’s line-up was finally complete with the recruitment of frontman Steve Kerr, who enabled the group to burst out of the rehearsal studio and onto the capital’s live music scene.
With responses to their live shows far exceeding expectations, the rising metallers are rapidly creating an army of followers and this is only set to increase as the band release their new video single, ‘Equinox Of Eternal Embers’, and their forthcoming EP, ‘Solitude Of Self Awareness’.
The single will be revealed in September and the track is representative of their blistering sound – explosive riffs and heavy breakdowns merged with an engaging vocal attack.
Have a listen and watch Decrypted become your favourite new band.
‘EQUINOX OF ETERNAL EMBERS’, THE NEW SINGLE FROM DECRYPTED, WILL BE RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 29.
