Bandcamp Series: Forever Still - Breaking Free (2013)

Combining metal, hard rock and industrial, Forever Still are a gem of a find. From Denmark, this band have been making waves on the Danish music scene since Mikkel Haastrup first spotted front woman Maja Schønning playing with her previous band in 2009.  Soon after the band added drummer Chad T. Charlton, along with guitarists Anders Bo Jespersen and Carsten Christensen to the lineup.

In 2013, they released the 4 track EP, Breaking Free and if the Internet is to believed, there are hints at a full-length album in the making.

The Key is the first track from the EP.  It really took me by surprise. Take a listen and let me know if you can see what I mean!

The EP was recorded by Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica, Mew) and mastered by Troy Glessner (Underoath, Kittie).  It is available on Bandcamp for a mere $4 and is well worth the tiny investment. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for a full-length album either.
