Irish metallers Words That Burn have secured the number one spot on the Irish iTunes Rock & Metal Chart with new single “Arise”, with the track shooting up the mainstream chart and currently holding position at number nine.
Hailing from Dundalk, Ireland, Words That Burn have been fusing elements of melodic metal, and alternative rock that are loaded with crushing riffs and soaring choruses as far back as 2010. Their debut EP, ‘Praey’ (June 2013), introduced them as one of Ireland’s most promising contemporary metal bands.
Late 2014, saw Words That Burn sign a short-term international record, distribution and publishing deal with Wormholedeath / Aural Records / Warner Chappell Holland (BV), before heading off to Tuscany, Italy to record their full-length debut studio album ‘Regret is for the Dead’. Taking musical & sonic influence from bands such as Deftones, Bring me the Horizon, Slipknot, Northlane, Killswitch Engage, Architects and Parkway Drive, Words That Burn compiled their debut album ‘Regret is For The Dead’ album of hook laden tracks which saw the album chart at Number 1 in the Irish Metal, Irish Rock and Irish Mainstream iTunes download charts.
Between 2016 & 2018, Words That Burn haven been on the road quote extensively with a plethora of shows the length and breadth of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, followed by the video release of ‘Mirror Perfect Mannequin’, which led to a slew of European dates in Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Poland and the Czech Republic, including a mainstage performance at the Exit Festival in Serbia alongside Destruction, Discharge and Black Dahlia Murder.
May 2018 saw the first offering from the sophomore album “When We’re Forgotten”, go straight to number one in the Irish metal & rock iTunes charts, supported by 2 further tours of Europe including shows at Revolution festival in Romania and Aggressive Festival in Czech Republic.
With the new album now in its final stages, the first single, ‘Arise’ will give some indication as to how much the band have evolved with regards to their sound, arrangements and delivery, which has taken on a far more eclectic approach to contemporary heavy music genres.
