THE Interbeing //
The Danish Industrial Metal band THE INTERBEING was formed in 2006. After receiving a nomination for ‘Talent of the Year Award’ at the Danish Metal Awards in 2008 and win ‘Best Metal Act’ at the Underground Music Awards in 2010, the band released the debut album 'Edge of the Obscure' in May 2011 via Mighty Music/Target Group with praises from the international press:
• Metal Hammer (UK) - 8 out of 10 stars: "... an album with refined character and a compelling undercurrent of dark sci-fi drama."
• Legacy (DE) - 13 out of 15 stars: “Ein weiteres kapitel des "Danish Dynamite" öffnet sich.”
• Hard Rock (FR) - 9 out of 10 stars: "The Danes perfectly master their instruments and mixing them with electronic sounds and different atmospheres that make the album a pearl of its kind."
ALBUM: The biggest Danish music magazine GAFFA gave the album 5 out of 6 stars and commented: "Edge of the Obscure is without doubt the best Danish metal album I've heard this year." The album went on to be number 1 in GAFFA’s list of best national metal albums in 2011.
In September 2012 “Edge of the Obscure” was re-released in Japan with two bonus remixes.
SOUND: THE INTERBEING combines the heavy sound of Scandinavian metal with the gloomy atmosphere of electronic genres. Tight, aggressive, melodic and atmospheric are the key concepts in their sound. Their inspirations range from Meshuggah’s polyrhythmic and syncopated universe to the melodic aspects of Soilwork combined with the sombre and shuffling electronic soundscapes that you find with Massive Attack and Amon Tobin, ending up with a kind of Industrial Metal in the spirit of Fear Factory.
LIVE: In 2012 Metal Hammer UK handpicked THE INTERBEING to participate in their showcase on the internationally recognized music festival South By Southwest (SXSW 2012) in Austin, Texas USA. Metal Hammer’s editor Alexander Milas complimented the band in the context: "We have deemed them to be of immense international import."
With numerous concerts in 2011 and 2012 the band has marked themselves to be a strong live act which takes the concept of stage performance to a higher level. In the summer of 2012 the band was headlining the Pandæmonium stage on the biggest Danish metal festival, Copenhell. In October THE INTERBEING was a part of the raising progressive metal festival Euroblast, and in the end of 2012 the band supported American Stone Sour to name a few achievements.
In December 2014 the band will be special guests to the genre-defining Swedish metal giants Meshuggah in Amager Bio, Denmark.
At the moment THE INTERBEING is finalizing material for their forthcoming second album, which is set to be released in 2015. The recording sessions will start in January 2015.
