Bringing a modern, aggressive approach to Death Metal, Palmerston North based DEPTHS have been making their mark on the New Zealand heavy music scene since their inception with their crushing sound and passionate, pulverizing live performance instantly showing the nation that they are an unnerving force to be reckoned with.
After countless tours up and down the country, supporting numerous international acts including Between the Buried and Me, Psycroptic, Thy Art Is Murder, Animals As Leaders, A Plea For Purging, Parkway Drive, Cruel Hand, Northlane, and I Killed the Prom Queen, they proved their position as one of New Zealand's hardest working metal acts and were signed by Deadboy Records at the end of 2011.
Shortly after, the band re-released their mini album ‘Resurgence’ with a bonus music video for the devastating track ‘Of Nothing’ which went on to be featured on national television as well as appearing on the soundtrack to the FMX JAM 2 DVD which was released with 40,000 copies of Crusty Demons’ own Crusty Magazine.
Early 2012 saw a brand new single ‘Illumination’ hit the number 1 spot on the iTunes metal chart and also sit on the top 10 Rock chart upon it’s release continuing to generate more hype and interest in the band in the realm of modern metal.
October 2012 marked the release of the highly anticipated studio album ‘Revelation’ which was a step forward for the band in every direction, bringing even more brutality and intensity to their mammoth sound.
