Furyon Post “Don’t Follow” Music Video
April 18, 2012
“Don’t Follow”, the new video from U.K. metallers Furyon, has now been released. The song comes off the band’s debut album, ‘Gravitas’, which was released on March 21st in Japan via Spinning, March 23rd in Europe and March 27th in North America via Frontiers Records.
Since their inception Furyon have been a band who like nothing more than to challenge expectations. Raised on a diet of heavy metal, prog, and classic rock, Furyon mix all these components for a truly unique and contemporary sound — delivering huge rock radio friendly songs, with technically challenging, yet infectiously catchy musicianship, dedicated to one sole purpose… making hard hitting songs that will stand the test of time.
From the outset Furyon have been a force to be reckoned with live. Word of mouth meant they soon became one of the biggest draws in Brighton’s busy rock scene, selling out shows at the iconic Concorde 2 venue, usually reserved for high profile touring bands. The blistering power and passion of a Furyon show is something very special to behold.
What separates Furyon from the crowd is the sheer quality of their musicianship. Boasting two truly world class guitarists in the form of Chris Green and Pat “The Shred” Heath, Furyon have few peers when it comes to the quality of their iconic riffs and jaw dropping solos. Backing them up is one of the tightest rhythm sections the rock world has to offer with the awesome combination of Lee Farmery and Nickel. Leading from the front is the outstanding vocal versatility of Matt Mitchell, whose emotion drenched voice effortlessly moves between melodic and crunchingly heavy.
In 2009, after a sell out tour, and accompanying EP, Furyon set about the serious business of writing their debut album. The early demo’s reached the ears of US producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Fozzy), and a powerful and symbiotic relationship was formed. It became obvious immediately that Beato and Furyon were on the same page creatively, so much so that the band flew out to his Atlanta studio to record their stunning debut album they aptly named ‘Gravitas’.
Released independently on a low profile and later covermounted on Metal Hammer UK, ‘Gravitas’ received rave responses from the press, before Frontiers Records re-released the album with two bonus tracks.
