AFFASIA - Debut EP Out This Month

Richmond (USA) based dark/atmospheric metal group Affasia will release debut EP Adrift In Remorse on 23rd February through Transcending Records. Fusing elements from their diverse influences, Affasia play guitar driven dark melodic metal with elements of doom, death, darkwave, shoegaze, atmospheric and even classical music.
In addition to playing drums on the album, Tony Petrocelly of In Trapan Studios (guitarist/songwriter/producer of Construct Of Lethe, guitarist of Grethor and drummer of Lord) recorded, mixed and mastered Adrift In Remorse.
Affasia was created as a collaboration between founders Jason Jennings (guitarist/composer) and David Waltenbaugh (guitarist/composer/producer) in 2012. In 2013 the duo started searching for other members to complete the line-up. Noah Cabitto (vocalist/writer/composer) joined and assisted with writing, lyrics and naming the project. Joshua Sheffield (percussionist/writer) joined shortly along with Nick Lucente (bass) .
David and Nick resigned as active members in late 2014, although their contributions in writing the material had a big impact. In early 2015 Noah Jones (bass) and Michael Potts (guitar) were live members. In early summer of 2015 William Carter (bass, formerly of Withersoul and Cremains) joined as bassist and Jaden Deesvanburick (guitarist) joined resolidifying the line-up.
William and Jaden parted with Affasia in late 2016. Nick Lucente rejoined in early 2017. Unfortunately once Affasia had restarted recording in earnest Joshua had to respectfully resign as the full-time drummer. He was always the band's guiding light and positively a sheer creative force that the group was proud to have and hope to work with again. Affasia is a must hear for fans of Katatonia, Swallow The Sun, Alcest, Hanging Garden, Agalloch, My Dying Bride and similar acts. Link
