The Medea Project
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.
The Medea Project just is….

Tributo? Oppure machiavellica opportunità per racimolare soldi facili?Del ritorno dei Pantera dal vivo senza i fratelli Dimebag Darrell e Vinnie Paul si è già parlato a lungo, e ancora se ne discuterà in vista del concerto del prossimo 2 luglio al festival The Return Of The Gods all’ Arena Parco Nord di Bologna.A nostro avviso, però, c’era bisogno di fare un po’ d’ordine tra le premesse iniziali, gli sviluppi attuali e le prospettive future dell’evento che vede protagonisti anche Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society) e Charlie Benante Official (Anthrax).Il tutto secondo il nostro stile, sempre alla ricerca di un essenziale equilibrio tra le facili condanne dei puristi e l’amore incondizionato dei fanboy, riportando le dichiarazioni di tutti i musicisti coinvolti e facendo quella INFORMAZIONE che sembra ormai un’utopia in questa epoca d’infinita polarizzazione su internet.Ad ogni buon conto, come spesso ci capita di ribadire su questa pagina, Rock Hard è una maxi-rivista di 148 pagine che va ben oltre l’articolo di copertina, e anche stavolta la lista degli artisti ospitati è di quelle da far tremare i polsi.Potete consultare l’elenco completo, già disponibile con tanto di immagini in anteprima sul nostro sito, oppure accontentarvi di qualche grosso nome al volo: Ghost (intervista esclusiva per l’Italia), Therapy?, Dave Lombardo, DevilDriver, Deathstars, The Modern Age Slavery, The Ocean Collective, Winger, BardoMagno, Legion of the Damned, Cattle Decapitation, Sweet & Lynch, Revolution Saints, GRAVEWORM OFFICIAL, Def Leppard, Blood Ceremony, Arjen “Ayreon” Lucassen, The White Buffalo, Satan Takes A Holiday, letdown., Burning Witches, Epica, ScreaMachine, Liv Kristine, Gli Atroci, Enforcer, American Jetset, Voyager Australia, Giöbia, CURSE OF CAIN, Heretoir, GOZU e tantissimi altri!Si preannuncia un numero che divorerete con la ferocia e la bramosia di una Pantera vera e propria, anche grazie alle sempre più importanti rubriche di approfondimento e alle centinaia di recensioni, molte delle quali potrete leggerle almeno un mese prima del web (alla faccia dell’essere “sul pezzo”).Tenete d’occhio questa pagina per tutti gli aggiornamenti, le anticipazioni e le liste complete delle interviste e delle rubriche, ovviamente senza dimenticare di passare in edicola od ordinare comodamente sul nostro shop online: www.rockharditaly.com/shop/it/in-edicola/275-rock-hard-maggio-2023.htmlROCK HARD ITALY: ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?! … See MoreSee Less

@imperativepruk Since South African band The Medea Project were reborn on English shores in 2017 they have steadily built for themselves a reputation as outliers and margin walkers, carving out an individual artistic aesthetic that places them in a league of their own. Drawing on doom metal and gothic rock and infusing the resulting blend with a raw, primitive power and arcane atmosphere The Medea Project inhabit a world where the only rules are their own. New EP Reflections is set to thrill those who have embraced their firelight rituals and utterly confuse those who were never meant to understand…Featuring two interpretations of their own ‘The Ghosts Of St Augustines’, which appeared in its original form on The Medea Project’s debut album, Sisyphus and shocking covers of classic songs by Motörhead, Venom and Tiamat, Reflections takes the known and transforms it into the unknown. Familiar sounds become treacherous as The Medea Project turn out the lights and rearrange the sonic furniture, creating a maze of tricks and traps. Yet for all the manipulation of form and application of shadows there will be no cries of ‘blasphemy!’ in response to The Medea Project’s work. They have retained the essence of the three hallowed bands whose work they have embraced and there is reverence within the warped forms of these newborn mutations. As for ‘The Ghosts Of St Augustines’, well those troubled spirits have become hungrier and more haunting than they ever were before.Reflections will be released through Trepanation Recordings on April 28th on both digital and cassette formats and features some brilliant artwork, created for The Medea Project by Daniel Bollans of death/doom metal outfit Consecration. The hand drawn image hides a myriad of secrets, just like the music it accompanies. Look deep into The Medea Project’s carnival mirror of dreams, nightmares and wonders and discover a world that exists between the last moments of dusk and the darkness of the night.impe#southafricanmetals#reflectionsa#trepanationrecordingsc#marginwalkersu#Sisyphusm#venomr#motorhead #tiamata#consecrations#danielbollanss #sisyphus #venom #motorhead #tiamat #consecration #danielbollans … See MoreSee Less

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!

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
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!
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…
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!
