UK metal quartet Arkdown have released a video for their crushing new single ‘Made Of Misery’. The track is the third single from the band’s upcoming record Terra Phasma, due for release on 3rd December 2021.

The band comment: 

“I promised someone a long time ago that I’d write a song called ‘Misery’, because they said I looked miserable every time they saw me. I’ve suffered with depression for quite a while, and tend to deal with it by shutting myself off from people. I’ve often felt like I deserve to be unhappy and, even though I don’t think anyone deserves to be sad or suffer with mental health issues, my head tells me I’m different and that maybe I don’t deserve what I’ve got. I don’t have the answer to dealing with that yet but I know that, like me, many people out there who feel the same way, will often turn to music as a safe place. Maybe hearing me talk about it in ‘Made of Misery’ and relating to it is a step towards breaking out of it.”

Arkdown recently announced their hometown Terra Phasma release show, set to take place on 3rd December at Corporation in Sheffield. The show is Arkdown‘s first since March 2020 and marks vocalist Joe Hallam‘s debut performance with the band.

Arkdown are a four-piece metal band from Sheffield, UK. Formed in late 2015, the quartet draw heavily on modern metalcore and death metal influences, framed by their signature melodic, yet heavy, riff-based style.

Self-releasing their single ‘In Torment’ and their debut EP The Calling whilst touring the length of UK, Arkdown have supported a glut of heavy hitters in the scene, from Fit For An Autopsy and Oceans Ate Alaska, to Kingdom of Giants and A Night in Texas.

With the release of their second standalone single ‘Miasmic’, Arkdown‘s sound matured and extended their reach, as they broke out of the UK to play shows in mainland Europe – before COVID-19 put on the brakes. Arkdown spent that time refining their line-up and sound before working on their upcoming record, Terra Phasma.
