The Medea Project | Live Booking:

The Medea Project are not like the others; nothing they do can ever be described as ordinary or obvious. From their early beginnings on the east coast of South Africa, through their relocation to England and signing with Imperative PR, this band have always stood out, proudly, from the crowd. Rooted in the sounds of the underground but drawing from an array of dark influences and always infused with their sense of individuality and irresistible compulsion to rebel, the music of The Medea Project brings a unique magic to every show that they play. A blend of primal rhythms and powerful, dark emotions the band are both formidable and beguiling, challenging and hypnotic when they roar into life beneath the lights.

Since arriving in the UK, The Medea Project have graced a diverse range of bills, their bewitching sounds for the dark of heart, the tainted spirits, the lost and alone, always standing out but always complementing - and invariably capturing new hearts, drawing fresh devoted disciples into their shadowed coven. An impressive early performance with THE PROPHECY started whispers spreading through the scene and a UK Tour with Italian psychedelic sludge gods NIBIRU soon followed. From those successful appearances in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham The Medea Project next found themselves performing with riff lords CONAN and CONJURER.

In 2019 the band continued to impress, bringing their deeply affecting sounds to the stage alongside the likes of GODTHRYMM, DIE KUR, APOPHIS, ZATOKREV, AWOOGA , YGODEH and FINAL COIL; bands that range from doom metal to industrial, death metal to post metal, from the experimental to the traditional. The spell of The Medea Project has enchanted them all. The band also played a successful set at THE GATHERING OF METAL FREAKS festival, sharing the stage with KRYSTHIA, PEMPHIGOID, PSYTHON and many more.

While Covid-19 raged The Medea Project found new ways to take their powerful performances to the public, recording a live in the studio set for the online event METAL FOR AFRICA SUMMERFEST 21, which they then brought out that same year as the Southern Echoes EP.

Once the grim restraints of the pandemic induced lockdown had lifted, The Medea Project were quick to return to the road once more, finally able to promote their debut album, Sisyphus, which was released into the wasteland of 2020. In 2022 they joined forces with YGODEH, FINAL COIL and DIE EGO for the successful Barely Alive Tour, which brought its diverse and powerful sounds to venues across the UK and appeared at the RENAISSANCE ALTERNATIVE MUSIC FESTIVAL X alongside the likes of VOODOO RADIO and KILLERKORP. Now in 2023 the band are gearing up for the road once again, with new EP Reflections set for an April 28th release through renowned label Trepanation Recordings.

With each show they play their reputation, their myth grows. Their strange alchemy and passionate performances speak to all who witness them. Their integrity and determination is unmistakeable. The Medea Project can make any audience their own.

...a fractured, chaotic sorcery that feels so much greater than the sum of its individual parts.
