British metallers AMBRIUS release ‘The Unavoidable Path’ video ahead of their debut EP this July

Ambrius is most likely a new heavy metal band you’ve yet to discover, but that is set to change. Featuring former members of metal acts Oakhaart and Tempestora, this Gloucester metallic group has spent time honing lessons learnt and applied a pure bloodied combination of art and craft to produce one of the best emerging metal debut EPs heard in recent times.

The debut EP ‘Effigies of Time‘ sees Ambrius romping out the gates with their own unique take on heavy metal which paints huge dark orchestral and symphonic sonics that are complimented with technical heavy metal acrobatics. Crucially, at the beating heart of this forthcoming release is the importance of songwriting, melody and a flaming hot side dish of diversity. Shiers explains, “Metal is and probably always will be the main source of music I listen to, however, I’ve always loved and appreciated many genres of other music, including classical bodies of work. Like Metal, classical music has such a dark but beautiful element to it that really resonates with me, and this really inspired me to get more into musical theory and orchestral music to write the scores for Ambrius’ debut EP.”

A cathartic time capsule, ‘Effigies of Time’ lyrically resonates with modern day society and current events. Prophetic in places, reflective in others. The lyrics serve as a sharp reminder that the world we live in shifts at a rapid pace and what we thought we once knew now requires careful thought and action if we are to survive and thrive. Featuring six tracks influenced on the different strains, pressures and injustice in the world and a much needed time for change, this new EP is a heavy metal haven that cares and challenges the listener to face difficult truths affecting Planet Earth right now. 

“Ultimately, our debut EP dares to dream of a perfect world, one that embraces ‘imperfections’ instead of shunning and outcasting them”, says Shiers.

From invasions, war, the horrors of prejudice, hatred, & racism, butterfly effects and beyond, Ambrius discusses a broad spectrum of important subject matters throughout the new EPs journey, some of it their own experience and observations on current events. However, one cornerstone cements this release: Stamp out prejudice, hatred and intolerance everywhere. (credit: The Sophie Lancaster Foundation). 

Change is here, it’s inevitable, and Ambrius are set to lead the charge in the metal underground’s future.
