“No Sin Evades His Gaze are one of the most exciting new bands in the UK.” – Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer
“Heavier than the titanic – In Short, this band slays” – Alex Baker – Kerrang Radio
No Sin Evades His Gaze are a metal act hailing from the UK.
Comprising members from various bands including ex-Ravenface and ex-Bleeding Oath, the project was founded mid 2013 by vocalist James Denton. The band’s debut album “Age Of Sedation” was released in July 2014, alongside a music video for the title-track, receiving critical acclaim from the likes of Metal Hammer Magazine “….NSEHG are the future of heavy tech…” and The Guardian “..Whilst it’s slightly sickening that people so young can play their instruments to such an insanely high level, the resultant racket is undeniably thrilling…”
Influences for the album span the full spectrum of the genre with Death Metal, Groove, Metalcore, Progressive and even some Djent stylings being prominent throughout. The tracks are primarily riff driven, taking ideas from bands such as Lamb of God and Pantera and applying them to a much more contemporary, down-tuned crushing template.
With an aggressive lyrical style and delivery, catches and hooks are scattered generously throughout the album with technical lead work and mechanically tight percussion wrapping everything together perfectly.
No Sin hit the ground running with their first two tracks, airing their debut single ‘Age Of Sedation’ on the legendary Johnny Doom’s show via Planet Rock Radio on Friday 2nd May, and second release “Roll Up The Royalty” that premiered on June 10th exclusively via Metal Hammer.
Summer and Autumn 2014 saw the quintet playing gigs and festivals throughout the UK including, The O2 Academy in Islington- London, UK Tech Fest, Scotland’s Les Fest, Mammothfest in Brighton and the pinnacle of the UK festival scene, Bloodstock Open Air! showing how much faith the tastemakers of the metal scene already have in them.
No Sin plan was to crush all in their path. And with the reaction to the band’s highly original, and all encompassing sound gaining the attention of the big boys, 2014 was exceptionally exciting for No Sin Evades His Gaze.
2015-16 The band continued to gather a loyal following with gigs and tours throughout the U.K. And Europe. Highlights being an appearance at the hugely prestigious EUROBLAST Festival in Cologne, Germany and a third appearance at UK TechFest. The release of a standalone single “Preacher” to critical acclaim confirmed the band’s ongoing progress.
