Virgil Yana, who had left Thai metalcore band Nobuna in 2020, has recently formed deadlinescape., a new emo/melodic post-hardcore band in Coventry, United Kingdom. The band has just released a debut single called “Eternity” on Feb 9th, 2022.
This debut single already showcases a compelling soundscape composed of soulful vocals, dazzling guitar riffs, and infectious rhythm. Recorded almost entirely in a bedroom on campus at University, the band has already proven they can create a zestful track with limited resources. Virgil Yana (drummer, producer) and his detailed production are only elevated further by the mixing and mastering of Noom Chanon at Nongnoom Studios, Bangkok. For a first single, it demonstrates the band’s eclectic influences from electronic to metalcore, punk to trap, and even cinematic orchestral music. Their capabilities for gut-wrenching lyricism and impressive musicianship within these genres make this track head-bangable, yet approachable and digestible.
The musical roots for deadlinescape. come from a variety of places, including Virgil’s time with homegrown Thai band Nobuna, Amy Monella’s (vocals) and Becky Hipson’s (bassist, sub-vocalist) vocal experience with other University bands, and Peter Job (guitarist) and Calvin Chan (guitarist) honing their crafts with various musical projects at University.
Hailing individually from regions including London, Oxford, Bangkok and Hong Kong, the band crossed paths at the University of Warwick through their university’s band society (of which Hipson is currently President). Forming in October 2021, they have already headlined the music society’s on-campus Christmas Gig on 9th December 2021. Their varied influences prove to produce an exciting mix of musical talent in not only this track but also for their releases to come.
