HOPE ERODES is a metalcore band from Belgium founded in 2013, consisting of (former) members of Convict, Syncope, Warbeast Remains, Waves of Decay and Band Marginal. Known for their energetic performances, the band brings a blend of melodic death metal and metalcore to the stage.
In 2013, a three year search finally comes to an end when it unites five guys in the backroom of a local venue…Three months later, they recorded their first tracks at RED LEFT HAND Recording Studio. What was initially meant to be for promotional use only, overwhelmed their local fan base and so they decided to release a 4-song EP ‘LOST TO SUPREMACY’ March 2nd 2014.
Well received by press and webzines (Aardschok, Up Magazine, Lords of Metal, …), their debut EP brought them to big and small stages all over Belgium: Akkerpop 2013, Finals Antwerp Metal Fest Contest 2014, Metal Against Child Cancer 2015, Winner Black-Out Jam 2016, Finals Wacken Metal Battle 2016, Black-Out Bash 2016, Metal for Pigs – Channel Zero Edition 2018…
After regrouping their forces to a new line-up in 2018, HOPE ERODES finally hit the studio again to record their new 4-song EP ‘RAINWALKER’ at PROJECT ZERO STUDIO , in the good company of CARNATION ’s Bert Vervoort (recording – mixing) and Yarne Heylen (mastering). The EP got wonderful reviews by established names like Aardschok, Rock Tribune, Rockzine…
Unfortunately, the COVID-years 2020 and 2021 weren’t easy for HOPE ERODES. Apart from not being able to play shows, the band also had to say goodbye to a founding member and split ways with their vocalist. However, they can say they came out the COVID-19 pandemic with renewed energy, new faces, new approaches and a lot of visions.
HOPE ERODES is alive and kicking: Stronger than ever, playing (new?) music from the heart and always up for a party!
