Gorging on filthy distortion, pulsating with the beat of a drum.  Drawn from minds concocted with darkness, chaos, disillusion, anger, doom, intellect and simplicity.

Alive and uncaring.  Born of necessity.

Posted @withregram • @imperativepruk Released on March 20th, 2020, The Medea Project’s debut full length album, Sisyphus, is a listening experience like no other, a unique melding of gothic doom and dark metal. The songs that sing from the shadows as Sisyphus spins are not the familiar sounds of everyday, they do not sit happily in their genre defined pen. They speak to you from dark places, from deep and forgotten places, from the burning heart that beats within the chest of the outlaw, the outsider, those whose minds are free and whose dreams cannot be contained. Melody glitters like stars in black, bottomless pools of emotion and the strength is matched by the depth of these songs so real they seem to bleed. We are proud to be able to offer up this haunted collection on the Imperative PR YouTube channel. www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8aoz_4#themedeaprojecto#Sisyphusy#gothicdoomc#darkmetalm#southafricanmetalm#deathmetalm#hauntedu#ghostsh#babylonb#fear##primalforceforce See MoreSee Less

In true doom tradition, I was too slow in securing a ticket. I'm sure it was an excellent gig.

That makes me one jealous jellybean 😆

Metal Maze
23rd February 2018

Doomed to almost not have happened, last night at the Maze turned out to be a blast.

Massive thanks to Lycan and Pemphigoid for their dedication.  The Maze for hosting and a very very special thanks to everyone who came out on an grim icy Thursday night to headbang and party with us!

See you all again at The Angel Microbrewery in March!

Competition Time
6th February 2018

To coincide with us releasing some merch we have decided to run a competition and give 3 lucky winners a bundle comprising of our self-titled EP and a T-Shirt.

All of the instructions are here. Good luck and we’ll catch you on the road soon

THE YEAR THAT WAS….
31st December 2017

Well it’s the demise of yet another year but reflecting on 2017, it was a landmark year for The Medea Project.  Re-awakened on new shores, EP launch, shows and a relocation, it’s been a busy but memorable year.

Horns up to all the bands that we had the pleasure of playing with and bands we have met along the way.

An especially very very massive thank-you to the amazing, metal-mad Italian, Fabiola Santini.  Your support and faith always pushed us on and there are no words to express our gratitude!

And last but definitely not least a double horns up to all our fans.  The support has been overwhelming and we’re ready to keep the metal flag flying in 2018.

We want to wish everybody an awesome 2018.  Play it dark and play it loud!

Moving up……
12th September 2017

With a busy few months of an EP launch, barrage of gigs and some merch, the Medea Project is officially alive and squirming.  However, having left enough of a stain on the South East,  it is now time to spread that stain across the rest of the Land.

We have decided to slither our way up to the Midlands.  So, although we’ll be quiet on the gigging front for the next 6 weeks, it doesn’t mean we’re dead (well, we hope not) but tunnelling our way in.  We’ve already snatched ourselves a rehearsal room so the cacophony will continue and all this in time for the grimfrost that will be descending soon…

02 Islington
19th August 2017

Good gig at 02 Islington last night!  Great bands, great promoter and staff and an awesome crowd.

Thanks to The Basilisk, Sectlinefor, Detoxen and All That Was Said

Also thanks to Symptomatic and the O2 guys for all your support and help

Most of all thanks to everyone who came out to support, drink and in general have a damn good time!

Our next onslaught is on the 2nd September at the Red Lion in Gravesend.  See you there!
