Sounding like a hybrid of the meaty riff-infused grooves of Queens Of The Stone Age bred with the spawn of Nirvana, under the trippy orchestration of The Doors, DEEPSHADE make a welcomed return with the release of their breathtaking new EP, Gloaming, out now. Check out the video for the band’s current single, Life Is Beauty, at https://youtu.be/BfuzQndjv_8
Formed in Wigan, UK, and conceived in 2013, DEEPSHADE are as uncompromising as they are formidable. The much-acclaimed post-grunge stoner rockers have devoured the back catalogues of Black Sabbath, Nirvana, and Queens Of The Stone Age, as well as taking inspiration from Soundgarden, Spindrift and Pink Floyd. That said, you can distinctly hear the power trio’s own clear voice, stylings, and message upon listening.
Since their formation, DEEPSHADE have consistently won over new fans and industry tastemakers. With an established following throughout England’s northern territories, nurtured by a slew of explosive live shows, the progressive riff masters were brought to a wider audience through airplay support from BBC Introducing, Kerrang! Radio, Hard Rock Hell, Total Rock, Planet Rock, and a plethora of stations from around the globe. Recognition from mainstream rock publications soon flowed with the threesome racking up extensive acclaim from RAMzine, V13, The Guardian, Power Play Magazine and Classic Rock Magazine, the latter featuring the band on their cover-mount compilation CD.
DEEPSHADE are now braced to unleash their finest and most experimental work to date in the shape of their new five-track EP, Gloaming. While still retaining the band’s trademark sound, the record is both heavier and more diverse than previous material. David Rybka (Vocalist/Guitarist) remarks about the EP: “Our third release marks a more experimental approach to our heavy, catchy sound. And it’s one we can’t wait to play live. Gloaming is a beautiful time, when the sky is deep blue and the sun is just about to go down. It’s an otherworldliness that imbues the songs. It marks both a passage of time, and a new beginning.”
