Ventures, the explosive metalcore outfit from Manchester, England, burst onto the scene in 2017, and they haven't looked back since. With their debut song "42," released the same year, they showcased their raw power and undeniable talent.
In 2018, Ventures released their self-titled EP, further solidifying their presence in the metalcore realm. The EP was a relentless assault of aggressive riffs, fierce vocals, and thunderous drums. Audiences were captivated by tracks like "Paradise Lost" and "Legs," which showcased the band's ability to seamlessly blend melody and brutality.
The following year, Ventures unleashed the "Solitude" EP, diving into darker and more introspective themes. Tracks such as "I Bring The Diamonds, You Bring The War" and "Solitude" displayed their musical growth, incorporating haunting melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. Ventures proved their versatility and ability to connect with listeners on a deeper level.
In 2022, the band continued their sonic onslaught with the release of "Error 404." This hard-hitting EP showcased their evolution and maturation as musicians. Tracks like "Black & White" and "Cold Code" revealed Ventures' ability to blend bone-crushing breakdowns with captivating melodies, solidifying their status as a force to be reckoned with.
Ventures have left their mark on the live music scene as well, having graced prestigious venues such as Satans Hollow, Rebellion, and The Key Club. Sharing stages with notable acts including I Set My Friends on Fire, Wars, Only the Righteous, TheCityIsOurs, RXPTRS, and Virtue in Vain, Ventures have proven their ability to hold their own among industry heavyweights.
Their talent and dedication were recognized in 2020 when they emerged victorious in the first round of Metal 2 The Masses, a testament to their unwavering commitment and musicianship. Although the global Covid-19 pandemic interrupted live performances, Ventures used the time to refine their sound and prepare for their inevitable return.
With their sights set on the future, Ventures plan to unleash four new songs over the latter half of 2023. Their first release, "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start," is slated for July 2023, signaling their relentless determination and hunger for musical exploration.
Ventures, with their explosive energy, brutal sound, and dedication to their craft, have firmly established themselves as a formidable presence in the metalcore scene. The world awaits their upcoming releases, eager to experience the unyielding fury and undeniable talent that defines Ventures.
