The Reckoning


Basick's ambient metallers DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL release new track 'The Reckoning' today! All proceeds from the sale of this single will be donated to Martlets Hospice. Just head to our Bandcamp page to donate now - all donations will be transferred directly to our JustGiving page and will go straight to Martlets.

A message from the band: We have been a band for over 12 years. Along the way we have met some of the best people and shared some of our most treasured memories. But, as in life, those good times are inevitably interrupted by more testing ones. This song represents our struggle as a band and as individuals during those most difficult moments and reflects on how we got through them and moved forward. 'My eyes are open, this is not defeat...'

Not long after we had written this song we found out the tragic news of Tom Searle's passing. This really came as a huge shock to us all, as it did to countless other people around the globe. We have felt a special affinity with Architects having been part of the same scene since we formed back in 2004, following similar paths in the early days and touring together over the years. We have always had the utmost respect for them as musicians and as people. We wanted to be able to show our support for those closest to Tom and for those who cared for him.

Therefore we would like to donate all proceeds from this track to The Martlets Hospice as a tribute to the life and work of Tom and the legacy he leaves behind. We hope the money raised can be used to help those with terminal illnesses and support those close to them in their time of need. Please donate for this great cause. Thank you.

Donate now via Bandcamp and be sure to keep an eye on our JustGiving page to see how much you have raised for Martlets Hospice. You can also donate to Martlets by text – simply text DSHS88 along with the amount you'd like to donate to 70070.
