posted in: Local news | 0

Separation Has Begun is the new single from South African Modern Groove Metal mob
Sunken State. It’s the first single taken form the bands forthcoming debut full-length album

Solace In Solitude which is set to drop on the 11 th June 2021.

Separation Has Begun is about human disconnect from nature. Mother nature is fierce,
beautiful, scary, and inspirational – we cannot survive as a species without her. Our
exploitative relationship with nature is founded on a disregard for the future in pursuit of
short-term goals. The band captures these emotions with an aggressive yet melodic
expression of sound. While introducing new clean vocals, "Separation" promises to deliver
the modern groove elements that Sunken State has become synonymous with.” – Sunken


Separation Has Begun is available now on all digital platforms

The band formed in 2018 in Johannesburg and have been perfecting their sound ever since.
Sunken States debut EP titled Enter the Grey was released August 2019, followed by the
single This Is the End in March 2020, which US tastemaker metal site No Clean Singing
described as “vicious, brutal music to be sure, but still manages to be catchy”.

Although relatively new in the scene, each member has been crafting their skills for many
years and have joined forces to create Sunken State. The band is known for their tight, high-
energy on-stage performances and have been gaining a lot of traction in the South African

metal scene playing high profile shows including the South African Metal Music Awards

and opening for The Black Dahlia Murder at Ramfest.
