A dark star in a sea of monotonously predictable heavy bands, Medeia has stuck to one clear objective since its founding in 2002: creating a fresh, brutal sound rich in content and uncompromising in nature. Solely positive reviews for their self-produced and now sold-out debut album Quantum Holocaust: World Domination and the gut wrenching follow-up label release Cult stand as a loud testament to the success of that mission.
Following the success of their label debut, Medeia released the final instalment of their thematically twisted trilogy in May 2011, dubbing it Abandon All. Though lyrically picking up the tale of nuclear devastation from where “Cult” left off, musically Medeia again progressed by leaps and bounds, embracing whole new elements in their impassioned brand of aural battery and ensuring it sounds nothing short of exceptional.
Medeia has made a point of bringing their trademark jaw-dropping energy to audiences across Finland and beyond, touring relentlessly and playing shows alongside such notable acts as Ozzy Osbourne, As I Lay Dying, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Between the Buried and Me, Entombed, Raised Fist, Terror and The Ocean.
