Formed back in 2012, London’s MESSENGER delivered a highly successful debut with 2014’s “Illusory Blues” via renowned Svart Records (e.g. Mantar, Sabbath Assembly, Hexvessel). Apart from receiving much media acclaim, the band also was honoured with a Lime Light Award in 2014 and was nominated as “Best New Band” at 2015’s Classic Rock Awards. Not a big surprise as their Sabbath-meets-Floyd sound retains an undeniable fresh approach in a sea of “retro-this”, “retro-that”. Mixing hard rock, psych and 70’s prog in an addictive, highly atmospheric way, and transforming their live energy via drummer and producer Jaime Gomez Arrellano (Ghost, Hexvessel, Angel Witch), the second opus “Threnodies” is an honest, warm sounding and truly captivating follow-up impressing with extremely dynamic song-writing.
