About this Event
Newly formed Cinematic djent outfit Vanitas hit the stage on Friday 17th June at The Flapper, Birmingham for their Debut EP Launch show. With supports coming from some of Birmingham's best progressive metal acts: A Titan, A Deity, Axiom & Viridity.
Vanitas are a progressive metal band from Birmingham, UK. Coining the term ‘Cinematic Djent’ the 5-piece with previous members from ‘Verb The Noun’ and ‘Aramantus’ made their debut February 2022 with their epic new single ‘Ghostly Coast’.
Taking inspiration from bands such as: Periphery, Tesseract, Unprocessed, Veil of Maya, Devin Townsend and more, Vanitas have refined and evolved their sound to create a unique blend of chunky djent guitar riffs and high-intensity drums with soaring orchestral accompaniment and theatrical raw-emotional vocals throughout, and this is certainly true of the band’s debut self-titled EP.
Staying true to their nerdy roots as a band, Vanitas’s debut single Ghostly Coast reflects all this and more and is enough to make you feel like you’ve been placed in a JRPG boss battle.
-A TITAN, A DEITY-
Forming in 2016, A Titan, A Deity are comprised of like minded musicians from previous established bands and are ready to unleash a new brand of progressive metal on to the Birmingham Music Scene.
Having already supported big names such as Monuments, The Contortionist and Loathe, A Titan, A Deity have finished recording their 2nd EP which will be out later in the year and a Single is due out soon to support the release.

A metal band from Birmingham, UK. Spouting metaphorical lyrics above a bed of soul wrenching riffs and technical drums.
