NEWS: Copehill Down premier “Akiya” with plans for World Domination!

With Plans afoot for a debut EP and endless live shows, Newport South Wales Metalcore merchants Copehill Down have premiered a music video for “Akiya“, their fifth single in the past twelve months. Building on the Metalcore foundations with nuances from other genres the band have racked up over 11.7k Spotify streams across “Type I“, “Coward Amongst Kings“, “Reckoning” and “Silent Twin“. Being relaint on each other with a DIY ethos, all members activily recording, mixing and mastering their own songs and even designing their own artwork and merch.

The band remark: “Our roots stem from metalcore but as we continually develop our sound, we are infusing elements of progressive and djent styles with a view to forge a unique sound that can’t be labelled as any specific genre

Guitarist Neil Mahoney comments: “The Japanese word Akiya translates to ‘abandoned house’. This analogy reflects a theme visited in our previous songs – the decline of human civilisation. Mass departure from rural beginnings and declining birth rates set the backdrop for the song’s narrative, combining aggressive riffs, brutal breakdowns and epic choruses
