SaN PR Submission – VANITY ‘Perspective // Empathy’ EP, out on 22nd September




Menacing Brit metallers, VANITY, announce plans for their new EP, and have
unveiled the video for ‘Tranquil’ – taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Perspective // Empathy’, which lands on Friday 22nd September.

Ever since their birth in 2012, South Londoners VANITY (formerly known as
‘Vanity Draws Blood’) have been etching a name for themselves within the UK
and European Metal Fraternity. Expressing an amalgamation of brutal
breakdowns, haunting soundscapes, and fiercely low-tuned instrumentation,
the six-piece, fronted by two vocalists, strive and achieve to create
something potently unique. With an unbridled reputation for delivering
brooding and submerging atmospheric metal, the Brit metalcorers received
notable acclaim for 2014’s debut EP, I Witness, which firmly cemented the
band’s impending trajectory. After a period of reflection, the diligent
metal crew decided to focus on creating a series of works under the title,
Perspective; the first of which was released in 2016 and entitled,
Perspective // Dread. The highly regarded EP also contained the single,
Anxiety, featuring CJ McMahon of Thy Art Is Murder.


VANITY now set loose Perspective // Empathy, and it’s a true marker in the
sand. It is everything you should expect from a band that have exemplary
output. The record opens with the strikingly poignant and magnificently
evocative, Empathy, which is swiftly followed by the guttural attack of
their current single, Tranquilhighlighting the
six-piece’s songwriting prowess and dexterous musicianship. Sorrow is a
hefty slice of concise metal-core that viciously attacks your senses and
Extrovert sees VANITY push the envelope of sound even further, incorporating
intense dueling vocals, formidable riffery and melodic phrasing of the
highest order. The magnetic and all-consuming Affinity rounds off the EP and
only further outlines why VANITY are of the most exciting and original bands
at the vanguard of the UK scene.
