Popular South West metal outfit ‘Huron’ unveil their eagerly awaited new
album ‘The Dead Stay Dead’ on Friday 12th February, through all platforms
and outlets.

With a cluster of influences pulling from metal titans such as Slayer and
Lamb Of God, through to Black Dahlia Murder, Huron merge the fundamental
aspects of thrash, progressive and melodic metal to devastating effect. Born
back in 2007 and hailing from Plymouth, the riff beasts have undergone a
handful of line-ups changes before solidifying with Rohan James (Vocals and
Bass), David Parsons (Drums), Rimmy Sinclair (Guitar and Vocals), and Chris
Smith (Guitar, Vocals). As 2016 beckons, Huron are set to transcend from
underground heroes to major players on the UK metal scene.

With a keen work ethic and an enthralling sound, Huron soon set about
touring the UK in 2009 to support their debut album ‘Cheyne Stoking’. The
record racked up rave reviews and support from Kerrang! and Rock Sound
Magazine, as well as airplay on Bruce Dickinson’s BBC Radio show. Their
upward climb continued with the band’s next album ‘Mary Celeste’ which
secured further acclaim from Metal Hammer Magazine. By the time Huron
dropped 2012’s ‘War Party EP’, the metal crew had a firm following and a
huge swell of support. Throughout 2012 the band played a series of
prestigious festivals, from Download and Bulldog Bash, to Bloodstock. They
also found time to hit the road with Skindred for their full UK tour. After
taking time out to work on new material, the southern slayers returned in
2014 to open the main stage at Hammerfest. This year alone, the band have
supported Steve Smyth’s One Machine, played the Thrashersaurus Festival and
again wooed audiences with a blistering set at the Download Festival. Huron
have also just finished work with esteemed producer Justin Hill for their
killer new album ‘The Dead Stay Dead’.

Huron’s third album, ‘The Dead Stay Dead’, is undoubtedly their finest work
to date. Hurling out eleven cuts of full frontal metal, the record is laden
with ferocious riffs and considered phrasing, all aided by genuine
creativity and intense intent. The album’s namesake, ‘The Dead Stay Dead’,
is a prime example of what gems the album has to offer, with its infusion of
shrewd guile and pounding riffage. Its closer ‘Fresh & Thorns’ is a 100%
guttural attack of the senses with its stabbing rhythms and ferocious
beatings. From start to finish, it’s safe to say that Huron are back and
bigger than ever.
