Greetings Metalheads Forever Magazine!
My name is Hampus, bass player of swedish metalcore act Set Before Us. I just wanted to let you know about our existence and that we recently put up a brand new single called “Peripheral Vision” of our upcoming EP “Enigmas” (release date TBA) and it would mean a lot if you had some spare time to check it out and tell me your thoughts over it.
Introduction: Set Before Us came together as a band in the early months of 2012. The quintet hailing from the suburbs of Stockholm quickly moved on from covers and started writing and rehearsing their own material.
The basics: The idea of Set Before Us is mainly to present a energetic and inspiring live show. The audience will be taken on a ride which will include various interactive moments and powerful songs. The songs themselves are melodic metalcore with numerous inuences from other types of music. Set Before Us lyrics aim to inspire and motivate each individual to take control of their fate, destiny and life. The lyrics will tackle various dilemmas and give the audience a spark of deep thought.
Timeline: Frequently playing in youth centers and pubs around Stockholm and its surrounding area the band gained a local following. Set Before Us started recording their rst ocial single ”Wildre” during the winter of 2013. The single was released in the spring of 2014 and recieved positive reviews. A few months later Set Before Us began recording their debut EP ”Voyagers”, which was released in November 2014. With a new repertoire and a growing fan base the band started booking and playing shows all over Sweden. At the same time, they recorded a new single called “Highborn” which would come to be a musical milestone for the band. The song was reviewed as the best song written this far by the band. With a growing momentum and with wind in their backs Set Before Us set out on their rst ever international tour which would take them from Sweden to Germany almost all the way down into Switzerland. The tour was a success and the band started to build a fanbase abroad. Valuable experience was also recieved on tour, which would take the band even further in the future. With more touring ahead of them, Set Before Us has begun writing new music to extend their repertoire and further polishing their live act. They are making ready for the future.
Thank you for taking your time. Hampus Andersson
