Haema are an industrial-influenced experimental groove metal four-piece based in Northamptonshire, UK. Recently, the band has signed to metal label, Sliptrick Records, who will release the quartet’s debut EP, ‘Insurrection’ on October 31st, which was recorded at Initiate Audio & Media by Neil Hudson (Krysthla/Gutworm).
Formed in 2015, Haema encapsulates the essence of modern metal that likes to combine various styles of heavy music together. The four-piece hones in the heaviness and ferocity of groove metal, providing the crunchiest of hooks. This is balanced out by the infectiously catchy hooks reminiscent of the nu metal scene in the early 2000s. All the while topped off by a layer of electronic sounds and machine gun like precision found in industrial.
Within two years as a band, Haema have crafted a unique and individual sound that has been compared to the likes of the aforementioned bands also mixed with Tool / Rage Against The Machine overtones.
- Free Man
- Two Minds
‘Two Minds’ was the first track released from the EP and the band commissioned UK based design agency Very Metal Art, to capture the visual essence and context behind the track.
This debut EP has already received some extremely positive reviews throughout the music press, which is setting the band up for an exciting 2017/18.
