PROVIDENCE Signs With EULOGY RECORDINGS

Eulogy Recordings has announced the signing of the French hardcore band PROVIDENCE.

Formed in 2005, PROVIDENCE comes from the depths of filthy Paris and plays dark and brutal hardcore, full of crushing breakdowns. Since its inception, the band sought to innovate rather than imitate, intending to create a combination of social/political awareness and aggression.

Feeling that hardcore had strayed from its roots and DIY ethic into subgenres like emo and chaotic metal, a good, basic, heavy sound is PROVIDENCE's aim. Their style is huge, metallic and epic, yet manages to be efficient and straight-up at the same time. A low and thick dual guitar sound is underpinned by intense double-bass drumming, mostly switching between mid-tempo and punishing breakdowns but occasionally breaking into full-on bursts of hardcore speed. The hoarse-growled vocals that complete this already potent formula are complemented by monstrous gang backups, spitting out venom on a variety of topics, including politics, economy and the craziness of the world, yet maintaining a poetic turn of
phrase.

PROVIDENCE's violent and energetic live shows, to-the-point music and thought provoking, bleak, reflective lyrics never fail to impress live audiences. With the quintet always eager to hit the road, their fan base is constantly expanding outside of their city and country, forging a blazing path of hardcore force and brutality that France hasn't produced in quite some time (since KIKCBACK in the '90s).

PROVIDENCE has shared stages in France, USA, Brazil, Russia, Scandinavia and across Europe with such notable heavyweights as CRO-MAGS, STRIFE, AGNOSTIC FRONT, MADBALL, TERROR and VISION OF DISORDER.
