South African gothic doomers The Medea Project have just launched the video premiere for their live studio recording of ‘Fear‘. The track is taken from the forthcoming digital EP, ‘Southern Echoes‘, which will be launched on Monday March 29, through the band’s bandcamp page.
The EP will be the newest recording to drop after their 2020 DIY full-length debut ‘Sisyphus‘, which caught our – somewhat late – attention.
Check out the studio session for ‘Fear‘:
In January of this year The Medea Project played a set for the Metal4Africa Summerfest ’21 online event, and their specially recorded studio live performance captured something magical. Noted as a highlight of the streaming event by Powerplay Rock & Metal Magazine in their extensive review, the elemental four-song show was just too good to be allowed to fade and become part of pandemic history.
The new ‘Southern Echoes‘ EP consists of The Medea Project’s entire Metal4Africa set and adds to it a raw and bleeding, entrancing acoustic cover of Sol Invictus’ ‘Kneel To The Cross’ that seamlessly becomes another flame in this fire.
‘Southern Echoes: Stories From The South African Underground‘ features Medea’s Brett Minnie and Pauline Silver in discussion with influential members of South Africa’s alternative music scene as they try to define the unique nature of a creative melting pot like no other. With artwork designed by Gary Ronaldson (Benighted, Misery Index, Nuclear etc) ‘Southern Echoes‘ is a truly unique package.
