“We are stoked to let everyone know that we have also confirmed a profromance at Berlin’s PROGRESS BEGINS FESTIVAL on April 28, 2018.” Eyes Wide Open will be headling the event. The Progress Begins Festival is a gathering of up-and-coming progressive and alternative Metal bands. It will take place for the first time in 2017 in the Maschinenhaus of the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin, Germany.
Methane formed in the fall of 2012 by American brothers, living in Sweden, Tim Scott (former bassist of Revenant and HatePlow) and Dylan Campbell together with Tim’s long time friend Jimi Masterbo and drummer Andreas Strom. After gaining underground recognition for their previous EP releases, 2014’s ‘Southern Metal’, and 2015’s ‘Spit On Your Grave’, Methane was signed in 2016 by Sony’s Dark Star Records. The band has also appeared on the soundtrack for Scottish mini series Metalhedz (S03E02 and S03E03) as well as the first ever E-Novel with music “How an Atomic Fart Saved The World”.
February of 2017 saw Methane release its debut full length album “The Devil’s Own” on Sony/Dark Star Records which has been met by the press with great reviews. Drawing influence from Slayer, LOG, and Pantera, Methane has created a unique sound that is strong and unapologetic. The band has been touring in Europe supporting the album and steadily gaining a strong and loyal fan base in the European Metal scene with a reputation as a high powered, energetic live band. To date, Methane has played over 60 shows in 6 countries on 2 continents. Highlights include U.S. tour, headlining Finnish Tour, Rage of Armageddon Festival (NYC,USA) Metal Inferno Festival (Sweden), Heavy Metal Heart Festival (Helsinki) and opening for international touring bands such as Warbringer, Nervosa, Whiplash and The Haunted. Most recently, Methane has been joined by a new drummer, Olle Ekman, former singer of Deals Death and Amaranthe(live).
