French progressive death metal combo Havenless signed a deal with Wormholedeath for the release of their debut album “The Crimson Lines”. The record, produced by Wahoomi Corvi and mastered by JONAS LINDSTRÖM, will be available worldwide during this winter.
Official release dates will be announced soon by The Orchard and Aural Music.
About the band:
HAVENLESS was created in France , in early 2012, by singer/guitarist/composer Fred Blanchard (Ossuaire, ex-Fate of fallacy, Onyrisme). The line-up was completed with bass player Vincent Mattana (ex-Fate of Fallacy, ex-Sylver Machine), guitar player Benoit Bonnoron and drummer Vincent Roubière (ex-Offending, Reverence, Asmodee, Sael). After some shows in the south west of France, Vincent Roubière left the band. Recently, a new drummer named Romain Choisy joined. After the first album came out, Vincent Mattana decided to leave the band to be replaced by the bass player Christine Lanusse (Quantice). HAVENLESS released their debut EP “Architecture of plague”, which was recorded and mixed at ECHOES STUDIO in May by Raphaël Henry and mastered in July at UBIK MASTERING by keyboard player Pierre-Yves Marani.
The band’s progressive death metal sound is strongly influenced by OPETH, IHSAHN, ENSLAVED, and PORCUPINE TREE whereas the lyrics may remind KING DIAMOND ‘s style .

Cover artwork (by Machine Room) and tracklist are as follows:

Worm stated:“Havenless is a very young project and I got to know about them from their producer Wahoomi wich believed in them first. I suddenly understood that these guys were doing serious things and that they had a genuine and professional approach to their music. What I like of them is the choice for a natural sounding production and the use of tons of analog gear in studio wich is actually something breaking the rules in a music world done with drumkit from hell’s fake drums and guitar softwares like amplitube, guitar rig and so on. Their progressive attitude is something that will make this record work both for the insiders and audience. The awesome artwork created by graphic monster Rhett Petersoo completes a truly professional project. Now it’s our turn to support the band and we’ll try our best since these guys really deserve this.”

Worm states:“ok, here we go again with a statement, but this time it is going to be special… From Earth is a spectacularly brutal and violent project which have produced one of the most tuneful and intense albums ever conceived by a European band. From Earth’s roots are deeply grounded in its members’ past experiences with worldwide respected acts like Born From Pain and Blind Sight with a vision to the future thanks to their modern and apocalyptic drive. The first time that I listened to this record the whole office was blown away and my first thought was something like this: “Fuck schedules, we need to sign this band now or someone else is going to do it during the coming couple of hours.” So I asked guitarist Tommie Bonajo if they wanted to release the album through our company. We have been lucky, they accepted our offer. I would like to thank the band for their trust in us and I am pretty sure that they will not regret their choice even if I have to admit that this band will grow big soon with or without a label. We will give them a solid help for that goal, this is for sure.”
From Earth states:“We have been working hard on this record and we are extremely satisfied to release “Dark Waves” the very way we always envisioned it. We are very proud of the hard work, the sacrifices we made along the way and the way the record turned out. Song wise, production wise and lay out wise this record has been a long yet satisfying DIY journey, in which we were more than able to capture all our inspiration. The cooperation with Wormholedeath is yet another step in showing the world what we are capable of and cannot wait to display what From Earth stands for: hard and aggressive modern metal with a twist of our own.“
