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….

Horns up to www.jacemedia.co.uk for a great review of Sisyphus! Check out their page for music news and reviews!An excellent exploration of The Medea Project’s Sisyphus from Jace Media…

“Some doom styles can get bogged down in one particular sound which can make an entire album of songs seem to blur into one . I think this is the reason why I’ve been put off the genre for so long. However, this album has really opened my eyes, there is such a diverse range of songs which all retain the core element of the genre. You cant mistake the music by The Medea Project, it draws you in to the whole substance of what the band want to portray. This is a well written and produced album which has put The Medea Project firmly on the map.”

Tonight we should have been at The Chameleon with Torturous Promotions sharing the stage with Swamp Coffin, Electric Priestess and ỤBỤRỤ but alas this was not to be…

However, we’ve been hard at work rehearsing for when the gates of chaos open again. In the meantime, go and listen to Sisyphus on all major streaming platforms and also available on themedeaproject.bandcamp.com/album/sisyphus

Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can hit the stage again!

Got plenty of spare posters and flyers if anyone wants one!

Just one of those things. We can try it again eventually. How are you fixed for 2023?

The Medea Project

A bit of casual reading on how bands are whiling away their time….Today we bring you new and exclusive interviews with a host of Imperative bands…

In these times of uncertainty, with the world in the grip of the coronavirus pandemic and many of us confined to our homes, we reached out to the Imperative Management bands…how are they coping? What’s keeping them sane in this unprecedented situation? What are their plans for when this shadow finally passes? And what are their messages to you…

Find out what’s keeping the black flame burning in the Sathamel lair and how the Solitary road dogs are coping with all venues closed and tours postponed. Formicarius reveal what arcane texts they are studying in their confinement and Consecration delve into the depths of their record collection. With all the latest news from Final Coil, Forged In Black and The Medea Project too, as well as all the bands offering their personal recommendations for lockdown listening and their Top 10 albums of all time, there’s a lot to discover.

All housed in a special mini-site at imperativepr.co.uk, we proudly present The Lockdown Interviews…

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!

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!

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!
