Beyond The Pale
Beyond The Pale
The band draws a common influence from a wide variety of bands including Parkway Drive, Chelsea Grin, Children of Bodom, All shall Perish, Devil wears prada and many more. From a song writing influence, the inspiration resides largely in the deathcore subgenre incorporating characteristic breakdowns and vocal styles. Beyond the Pale attempt to bridge the gap between deathcore and hardcore subgenres appealing to both fan groups. As the alternative scene in Durban is heavily weighted to hardcore music, Beyond the Pale has benefited from the hardcore market. Due to the intense brutality of the band, they have also enjoyed the metal following they have acquired.
The South African scene is currently lapping up deathcore bands and Beyond the Pale have found themselves in the middle of it, creating and performing their own unique brand of deathcore at a professional level. As much as Beyond the Pale enjoys the virtuosic side of metal, their attitude towards it and the naming of song titles are often a parody of the seriousness of the metal genre. This gives the band a humorous edge, while at the same time, being very serious about the musicianship, song writing and performance. Beyond the Pale shows are audience driven as they prefer to have a party with their audience rather than simply to perform for them.
Through the assistance of Witchdoctor records, Beyond the Pale have been able to produce a 4 track EP which has been pivotal in internet based electronic marketing.
