This is an archive of the band profile for Hostile Rising.

Hostile Rising formed in autumn 2008. Together the five members create a blend of tight, machine-gun riffs and southern grooves with a dark, melodic edge. The band have gigged with acts throughout Yorkshire and the Midlands, and headlined many shows around Leeds and Wakefield in particular. The band have also performed alongside acts including Bleed From Within, Esoterica, Sensor, Pitchshifter and InMe. Hostile Rising are continuously writing new material encompassing their best elements: powerful and creative drums; heavy and melodic guitars; groove-laden bass; and a blend of harsh, guttural vocals & manic screams..
