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….

That lens flare
End This Way is one of my favourite tracks from The Anchorhold (Phil Stiles), helped no end by the amazing video clip from Lee Waters Lyrics. A huge amount went into the making of The Anchorhold, an album that allowed me to work with some truly fantastic musicians, including Pornographic Sunset’s Roger Morter; The Medea Project; Monachopsis’ Richard Allsopp, Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate’s Mark Gatland, S/W’s Tomek Wolski and Matt Steady; not to mention James Plotkin, who mastered it.The final piece of the puzzle came when Dan of Trepanation Recordings agreed to release the album, and you can grab a copy on CD and Cassette at www.philstiles.bandcamp.comRegardless, please check out the video, give it a like and hit subscribe – it all helps more than perhaps you realise. youtu.be/ekk0qh0TE6U

It was a real pleasure to sit down with the Rock Metal Podcast to talk about my debut solo (Phil Stiles) album, The Anchorhold. The album, which includes contributions from The Medea Project, Roger Morter of Pornographic Sunset, Molitoth-Audio / A Light Within‘s Kyle Brandt, S/W‘s Tomek Wolski, Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate‘s Mark Gatland, Matt Steady and Monachopsis‘ Richard Allsopp, was mastered by the legendary James Plotkin (Khanate) and was a genuine labour of love for all involved. I’m very proud of the result and it’s a privilege to be able to share some of the background in these interviews.

Introducing the band #7. Oh man, The Medea Project – where to start? A chance meeting at the Tap ‘n’ Tumbler, in Nottingham, saw Final Coil and Medea share a stage. The band had the most remarkable stage presence, and their atmospheric music was so cool that I was surprisingly nervy about even saying hi afterwards. At any event, Brett Minnie and Skwanky Clone are two of the most passionate individuals I’ve had the pleasure to meet. They live for their art and their enthusiasm is, in itself, infectious. They’re also (sorry chaps) incredibly warm hearted and I was so happy when they agreed to share a track on this album. To Reflections from an echo chamber, Brett added added bass, synth and vocals; Pauline, percussion and some perfectly pitched lyrics. They also gave the track its memorable title. If you’ve not checked out The Medea Project kick yourself, hard, and rectify the situation forthwith. medeaproject.comThe Anchorhold is out now via Trepanation RecordingsImperative PR Blackstar Amplification … 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!

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…

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!
