Coup de Grâce, a power metal band from Singapore, delivers classic heavy metal with an eclectic, avant-garde dimension. With sounds ranging from fast-paced galloping rhythms to a symphonic experience, Coup De Grâce draws its influences from the likes of Iron Maiden, Nightwish and Iced Earth.
Guitarist, Joel Trauma, is the primary songwriter in the band and his aim was to encapsulate all his favourite aspects of metal into one sound. Joel loves the dual harmonies of Iron Maiden, the crazy Djent stuff from Meshuggah, the uniqueness of Iced earth, the melodic, atmospheric feel of Nightwish, and the odd timing beats of like Prog metal bands.
We could not have done the EP without the help of our friends from the infernal regions, Aeonix Productions and Sonicwerkz Production who helped with the recording, mixing and mastering and also Joshua Nevis & May Kaythari who helped with the production of the album art and all visual collateral.
