“... a rich mix of prog rock, metal and more melodic leanings…surging rhythms ravaging riffs and powerful melodies...immense vocal presence and an emotional weight that grips and ceases to let go...*newly charted musical ground*.” The Brag
Sydney, Australia progressive metal quartet Red Sea have just released their new single, The One.
Following their epic, and acclaimed progressive metal single and video The Art of Transcending (TAOT) that premiered with Prog Mag UK in September 2018, the band have returned in 2019 with The One. After the proggy creepiness of TAOT, the band have this time launched out of the gates with a heavy-hitting, sexy, melodic groove-fest in The One.
Produced and recorded by Clayton Segelov at The Brain Studios in Sydney, The One opens with the chunky, dirty bass riff that is the anchor of the song’s infectious groove. It then explodes into thick layers of guitars, thundering drums and Bowron’s trademark sultry and powerful vocals.
The One is the first single from Red Sea’s upcoming and long-awaited 5 track EP. The EP has been completed with Segelov at the helm and at least 2 more singles will be released before the full EP is revealed in early 2020.
Red Sea burst onto the music landscape in 2016 with their debut EP Battlescar that was produced by the legendary triple Grammy nominated Rick Will (Fear Factory, NIN, Cold Chisel). After two Australian and New Zealand Tours they re-grouped and in 2018 released the stand out singles and kickass videos – Hurricane and The Art of Transcending – and completed two more Australian tours to huge critical acclaim and a growing army of loyal fans. With a sound likened to the love child of Evanescence, Pantera and Muse, Red Sea stand out among a …um… sea of sameness.
Red Sea will embark on a run of shows across the east coast in support of The One, see Tour Dates.
