Devil Sold His Soul is a post-hardcore band from London, England formed in 2004. Their music is a blend of crushing hardcore riffs intertwined with ambient dynamics. Releases to date include an EP, "Darkness Prevails" (re-released in 2008 with live footage, tracks and studio cuts) Following their debut release of "A Fragile Hope" the band recently released "Blessed and Cursed" which ensured the band a very respectful spot in the modern UK alternative scene. The band has extensively toured since its inception, an extreme task which has paid of dividends by moulding their tight framework in a live environment and increasing the dynamics in their song writing abilities, this is very much apparent with the albeit slight yet clear differences between their two recorded releases. It is unfair to make tertiary comparisons to other "epic metal" acts such as Cult of Luna (DSHS toured as main support in 2008), Isis or even more progressive bands such as Tool, their sound is far more stripped back, infectious looping of chord progressions which give it a far more accessible and even pop like sensibility, you will rarely find a fancy fiddly guitar riff amongst the crushing chug contrasted with the visceral yet melancholic clean phrases.
