SHARDBORNE : Sign to ‘Out On A Limb’ Records… Posted: 05/05/2015 by John O'Brien


Limerick Instrumental Progressive Metellers SHARDBORNE are keeping things very local by signing to Limerick label ‘Out On A Limb’ Records. The band have recently completed recording their eagerly anticipated debut full length album which will finally see it’s release through the label.


SHARDBORNE are a Progressive/Technical Instrumental Metal band based in Limerick. They were formed in October 2004 by the Culhane brothers on guitars and bass and Ben Wanders on drums. Eventually Eoin switched from bass to guitars and the band started to concentrate on original material. They went through a number of vocalists and bassists, but the core three band members continued on, eventually enlisting their friend Diarmaid on vocals.


The bands mix of guitar driven melodies and complex music structures leads to an exciting unique sound. The twin guitar players meld lines together with interwoven bass grooves and creative technical drum beats as the band collectively skip from one timing to another and from genre to genre.


Their first official release as an instrumental band was the track ‘Approaching C’ on the LIMROCK / BAD REP 2010 compilation CD, ‘METAL AFTER MASS Vol.2′. Which was followed up in April 2011 with the release of their debut “Aeonian Sequence EP”. A truly excellent release, displaying a vast number of musical influences, quality song writing and superb playing ability by each band member. Check it out! NOW!. It is available for completely FREE download at their bandcamp. Physical copies can be bought directly from the band through their facebook and email.
