Your chance to help conjure up an awards win for hotly tipped metal band

News Page 6th April 2018

A band featuring a University of Northampton graduate is in the running for a prestigious international award.

Midlands metallers Conjurer, who feature graduate Brady Deeprose on vocals and guitar, have been nominated for a Metal Hammer Golden God award for Best New Band.

Voting is open to the public, and you can cast your vote for Conjurer on the awards website.

2018 has been a breakthrough year for Conjurer, who released their debut album Mire in March to widespread critical acclaim, while metal Bible, Kerrang!, has described the four-piece as the UK’s best new metal band.

“The Golden Gods are one of the only worldwide award ceremonies that deal with heavy music and this nomination is a massive opportunity for us,” said Brady, who graduated from the Music Practice & Production course in 2014.

“We’ve worked hard to contribute something exciting what is currently a formidable pool of UK talent and to be recognised by an institution like Metal Hammer, at this level, is truly humbling. After a year that has seen us tick off so many ‘bucket list’ dreams, rounding off with a win here would be incredible. If you’re reading this and want to help us out, please do drop us a vote and share the details around.”

The Metal Hammer Golden God Awards ceremony takes place on Monday 11th June at The Indigo @ The O2 Arena, London.

Conjurer are signed to Holy Roar Records who are up for Best Independent Label and two of their label mates have also received nominations: Employed To Serve as a Breakthrough artist and Rolo Tomassi for Best British Band.
