Metropolis, a steampunk inspired rock band from Bury St. Edmunds (UK) are currently making waves at rock venues across the country with their dynamic and original sound. Seamlessly blending sci-fi, nu-wave and prog rock, they have really lit up the growing Steampunk rock scene.
"We are trying to focus the largely eclectic steampunk genre into a defined style that is both true to the sub-genre, whilst still accessible to the public at large..." - Metropolis
Managing to gain fans spanning the world in a very short time, this tight 5-piece band of seasoned musicians write original retro-futurist music with a dystopian slant, that really captures the imagination, whilst also managing to knock out slick guitar, pounding drums and catchy synth licks.
With plaudits coming in from genre leaders Vernian Process, Abney Park and BB BlackDog, Metropolis could well become the vehicle Steampunk needs to go mainstream.
Alt-Fest would like you to join us in welcoming Metropolis!
