Hostile Rising formed in autumn 2008.
Together the five members create a blend of tight, machine-gun riffs and southern grooves with a dark, melodic edge.
The band have gigged with acts throughout Yorkshire and the Midlands, and headlined many shows around Leeds and Wakefield in particular. Having fought, kicked and scratched their way to the final of the Metal To The Masses competition, the band triumphed and performed at Bloodstock Open Air 2011 on the New Blood Stage. The band have shared stages with such bands as Bleed From Within, Esoterica and Here Lies A Warning. The band also performed at Wakefield Rock Festival 2010, playing alongside acts including Sensor, Pitchshifter and InMe.
Hostile Rising are continuously writing new material encompassing their best elements: powerful and creative drums; heavy and melodic guitars; groove-laden bass; and a blend of harsh, guttural vocals & manic screams.
