Hailing from the heart of England – the Midlands – LAY SIEGE create their own distinctive heavy sound. The Northampton quartet mixes core-elements with post- and sludge-metal to achieve riff-orientated songs with heart and depth. Formed in January 2010, LAY SIEGE debuted with mini-album 'Obolus' in 2012. The well received six track EP was noted for standing out because of its fresh sound and approach. This is something the quartet continues to address on its first full length album and debut for LIFEFORCE RECORDS – 'hopeisnowhere'.
The record sees LAY SIEGE introducing new vocalist Carl Brown and strengthen the direction of playing massive, voluminous songs in between metal and modern post-core. With 'hopeisnowhere' the British four-piece is heading in the direction of a consolidated, overlapping heavy-sound that surprises with ruthlessness and sudden grace at the same time.
