In this day and age, there are very few artists who stare their scene in the face and ignore all of its expectations. Trench explores uncharted territory with their bold sonic signature, brooding aura, and a penchant to wage an all-out war with their music.
Setting the bar high with their debut record “Condition”(2017), Trench paved themselves a notably unique lane in both hardcore and nu-metal genres. Not stopping there and taking their sound to even further extremes, “The Gift of Guilt”(2019) was a testament to Trench’s ability to reinvent themselves with each release. The 3 song behemoth experimented with synthesis, ambient post-metal soundscapes, and captured the pain of loss while embracing the hardest truths in life.
Throughout these two releases, Trench’s unrelenting aggression and extensive touring brought them international recognition, and has allowed them to share the stage with bands such as Misery Signals, Integrity, Harm’s Way, and Comeback Kid. Propelled by the leading single “Hell Bent Gate” which features Jesse Zaraska of Misery Signals on guest vocals, Trench’s most recent release “Blossom” was exclusively premiered by Decibel Magazine, and landed the band on Revolver Magazine’s “Top 5 Bands To Watch” list. “Blossom” was praised as nothing short of a masterwork. Blending their previous styles with far more avant-garde song arrangements, Trench takes us to a place where we are left contemplating our inner demons, trapped under the weight of our absence in the present moment.
As the pandemic brought most of the music industry to a screening halt, Trench had to walk away from a tour lined up with Misery Signals as opening support across the east coast of the US and Canada. Not letting a cancelled tour come between them and their
will to succeed, Trench quickly adapted to their circumstances and wrote a new EP titled “Encased in Chrome,” which landed them a deal with New Damage Records (Dine Alone Records), serving as a testament to the undying determination that drives the metal quintet. Trench plans on releasing the first single from their new EP “Imminent Power Looming” with an accompanying music video later this year, with the rest of their EP set to be released sometime in early 2022.
Constantly pushing the envelope and developing a catalogue of songs that will forever leave their mark on the industry, there is just no telling how Trench will leave us feeling after consuming their carefully crafted chaos.
