Forlorn Hope are a five-piece heavy metal band from Merseyside that combine history and heavy metal with epic results. Described as “a musical version of Bernard Cornwell's 'Sharpe' novels” (Sentinel Daily), Forlorn Hope use punchy, hook-filled heavy metal and vivid, meticulously researched lyrics to retell, through the medium of metal, some of the most dramatic stories in military history. High octane, classic metal riffs and majestic keyboards unite to give these tales the sense of excitement, intensity and scale that they deserve.
In March 2018 Forlorn Hope released their self-titled debut EP featuring three tracks from their forthcoming full length album ‘Over the Hills’, to be released in 2019. 2018 saw Forlorn Hope give stand-out performances at Northern Symphony Festival and in the Merseyside heats of the national Metal to the Masses competition, as well as supporting NWOBHM legends Raven
and Swedish symphonic heavyweights Eleine.
Forlorn Hope press on towards bigger and better things in 2019, including the release of their debut album, 'Over The Hills', a collection of stories of horror and heroism from the Peninsular War of 1807-1814. 'Over the Hills' will be released on 26/07/2019.
