Today we are pleased to be able to bring you a brand new video from The Medea Project! ‘Fear‘ was recorded live in the studio as part of a special set that the band performed for the Metal4Africa Summerfest ’21 on-line event back in January and features on their upcoming EP, Southern Echoes. You can see the raw power of ‘Fear’ exclusively at the GRIMM Gent webzine right now – so just follow the link below to discover why Powerplay Rock And Metal Magazine described The Medea Project’s Metal4Africa set as ‘dramatic’, ‘haunting’ and ‘elemental’…
Southern Echoes – which will be available from The Medea Project’s Bandcamp page – is a unique package, featuring the band’s entire Metal4Africa set, a revealing cover version and an in depth podcast discussing the individual nature of the South African underground music scene where The Medea Project were born.
The Medea Project’s debut album Sisyphus is also still available and has received plaudits from across the metal press, including GRIMM Gent, where they were named in the ‘zine’s recent ‘8 Gothic Releases From 2020 You Should Check Out Still‘ feature, alongside Acension Of The Watchers and Draconian.
“Probably the heaviest of the bunch here, and the most intriguing to me personally. Stemming from the tiny and close-knit DIY alternative scene of South Africa, you can somehow hear in The Medea Project‘s music that they’re different than most bands out there. Pauline Silver and Brett Minnie have molded doom/sludge metal with a Gothic aesthetic and atmosphere into a steaming, all-devouring, sluggish dark tribal monster.”
