The Soundboard Reviews

HALF ME – encompassed by guitarists Chris and Julius, vocalist Chris, drummer Max and bassist Tobias – are one of the newest additions to the Arising Empire roster. Hailing from Hamburg, Germany, the heavy music five piece was founded in October 2018 after the demise of each others local bands.
In two years time, the band has been able to make an impact in the music scene by self producing music and videos to display their intensive and energetic demeanor. Debuting with four singles to start, It was their latest single 'Exitwound' (featuring Jack Bergin of VOID OF VISION) that gave the group a breakthrough and landed the band in the spotlight of KNOTFEST’s “Countdown to Oblivion“.

Today Half Me release their first ever album titled »SOMA«, out now via Arising Empire and serve their new video for 'I Am But A Guest In Exile' to emphasise this juggernaut of a milestone.

Riding the high of their recent success, Half Me continues and raise the bar with »SOMA« that blends a modern rendition of metal and hardcore with highlights of 90’s nu-metal. Pounding riffs and breakdowns are accompanied by brutal, yet sometimes elegant, vocals that all balance together to formulate the band’s own distinctive sound.

 Theme & Lyrics 

"I AM BUT A GUEST IN EXILE is leading into the final act of the album. The fear of being replaced is getting out of hand and delusion is spiraling out of control. 
The entity that has accompanied them for so long is beginning to force itself onto the protagonist. Has it already taken over? There’s no way to determine from the outside so is it even possible to notice from within? While suffering from sleep withdrawal and schizophrenic episodes the protagonist is repeating their mantra to stay in control: Don’t black out."
