They've been traded as Brighton's Finest for several years. The first EP was released in 2006. In 2010 they released "Gravitas" on a small label. Meanwhile under contract with Frontiers, they didn't miss the opportunity to sell this jewel again. That's right. Because it would be too bad if it could only be perceived as a rarity. The quintet has an original sound so early in their career, which is characterized by the powerful voice of Matt Mitchell and the heavy guitar sound of Chris Green and Pat Heath. Even the one or other fluent and nimble guitar run in the best John-Petrucci manner makes its mark on some songs. Furyon seem to be influenced by typical British classic rock, but they also combine it with the heaviness of metal-affine grunge and Black Sabbath sounds. Even Progmetal á la Dream Theater, Iron Maiden and Mastodon have left their mark on them ("souvenirs"). Producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Fozzy) created the corresponding transparent and powerful sound for them.
