Formed in the Summer of 2012, The Antiquity plays mainly ‘groove’ based metal while fusing together sub-genres such as Death Metal & Deathcore.
The Antiquity’s sound is uniquely their own, creating music that focuses on creating complex rhythms, riffs & song structures as well as incorporating down-tempo aspects and Death Metal brutality.
After only a few months of touring, The Antiquity shared the same stage with bands such as Sworn Amongst, Black Tongue, Xisforeyes and Shot Down Stay Down.
‘A Colossal Infliction of Hate’ debut EP released Summer 2013.
” ‘A Colossal Infliction of Hate’ is shocking to say the least. Bringing the down tempo hate fused with death metal brutality, this release will definitely send The Antiquity into the running’s in the Deathcore scene. Tracks such as ‘Tales of Anguish’ showing a mixture of both brutality and hardcore aggression.”
