Maltese extreme metal quintet Bound To Prevail have unveiled their new video for the track ‘Irreverant Progeny’, from their 2017 EP Omen Of Iniquity.
Bound To Prevail’s brand of Death Metal is influenced by a wide variety of extreme music sub-genres, with each band member bringing their own distinct influences to the songwriting process. The core sound fuses aggressive, frantic, pounding rhythmic passages, accentuated by instantly recognizable melodic overtones.
Founded in the fall of 2014, the Maltese band hit the ground running and quickly set their sights on staking a claim on the local underground metal scene. The band’s well-received debut live performance at the Malta ‘Xtreme Metal Assault Festival’ in 2016 was quickly followed by a number of shows, including supporting slots for renowned international artists such as Fleshgod Apocalypse and later with Vader, Entombed A.D and Mayhem.
In 2017, Bound To Prevail hit XiR Studio to record their first official EP titled Omen Of Iniquity, before making its way to Sweden to be mixed and mastered by renowned producer and engineer Ronnie Björnström at Enhanced Audio Productions, who also worked on Aeon and Beheaded releases. The five tracks included in this release perfectly showcase the band’s trademark sound.
Bound To Prevail performed live at the Deathfeast Open Air 10th Anniversary Edition in Andernach, Germany. The band received immense praise for both the EP and their performance at the festival, which saw them line up with legendary heavyweights such as Suffocation, Cryptopsy and Vital Remains. A number of shows followed that winter, also supporting Dutch Death Metal legends Sinister.
In March 2018, Bound To Prevail was included on the bill of the ‘Blood Stained Earth Tour 2018’ as support for Venom Inc., Suffocation, Nervosa, and Aeternam in Manchester. In May, they also performed at the first edition of ‘SinFest’, sharing the stage with Hecate Enthroned, Carach Angren and Necronomicon.
In late July, the band capped off a string of successful shows by headlining Malta’s Farsons Beer Festival 2018 Rock Stage, making them the first Death Metal band to participate in one of Malta’s biggest music festivals.
Bound To Prevail kicked off this year by being invited to represent Malta at the first ever ‘World Metal Congress’ in London, a global gathering celebrating metal from around the world, endorsed by Sabbath legend Tony Iommi along with high-profile speakers and musicians like Barney Greenway from Napalm Death, Kim Kelly from Noisey, Tim Hoffmann from Wacken Open Air Festival and Dom Lawson from Metal Hammer.
Bound To Prevail kicked off the year by supporting Suffocation, Belphegor, God Dethroned and Nordjevel for the final date of the ‘Europe Under Black Death Metal Fire’ tour in Munich last month. This will be followed by several European festival appearances and tours across Europe.
