Forgotten Remains are a metal band from Chesterfield in North Derbyshire. They play blindingly fast thrash metal with a harder edge, ripping solos and growling death metal vocals and are influenced by bands like Slayer, The Haunted, At The Gates, Cannibal Corpse and Pantera to name a few. The band was formed nearly ten years ago during their secondary school years under the name of Nylis and since then has gigged extensively throughout the United Kingdom. During 2007 the band supported Cradle of Filth on tour and had dates booked with death metal bands Kataklysm and Aborted. The majority of the current line up has been solid for six years when they resurfaced under the title of Forgotten Remains.
Forgotten Remains are a hard working band and have recorded two EP’s, entitled ‘Forgotten Remains’ (2012) and more recently ‘Bind Torture Kill’ (2013) both self released. The band was also able to release ‘Bind Torture Kill’ online through iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other online outlets, as well as releasing it on professional hard CD copies. They won the Metal to the Masses competition of 2015 and played at Bloodstock Festival, receiving rave reviews, including a top billing from Dom Lawson in Metal Hammer and The Guardian. 20015 saw them play over 50 live shows and 2016 will see them playing for the 2nd time at Thrashersaurus Festival, as well as playing shows throughout the UK.
February and March saw the band recording their third EP (Morbid Reality) with legendary producer Russ Russell at the helm at Parlour Studios in Kettering.
