Cambion (Metal band from Exeter, UK) EXPLORED 22nd August 2011
A sleepy Sunday morning session with Cambion, an up-and-coming metal band from the South West of England. I'd shared a stage with them a few times in my own band and was eager to hook up with them for a shoot. To hear their music, go HERE.
Formed in late 2009 Cambion are a metal/experimental band from the depths of the Shire. An Exeter based band who strive to push their musical talent and expand their ever increasing fan base.
What Cambion lack in age they make up for in pure rhythmical talent. Tracks such as "Jester" epitomize their sound - a car crash melody of heavy vocals juxtaposed beautifully against toe tapping chorus lines, which allows a broad range of interest.
With plenty of heavy riffs to keep a mosh put pulsating until the last note of an inevitable encore, the four piece as a whole (both within their music and image) ooze the addictive rawness of a band who are sure to explode into the big time. Having already played in Europe and had 2 Uk tours, the band plan to play even further afield in the future.
