Highly rated Progressive unit ‘Black Market Serotonin’ release their enthralling debut album ‘Something From Nothing’ as Free Download/CD through Superstar Destroyer Records and all digital stores on Monday 29th April 2013.
 
Black Market Serotonin effortlessly merge the intricate texturing and progressive guile of Tool with the diversity of Porcupine Tree and leftfield alt-metal of Deftones, using meticulous experimentation and intelligent writing. The ascendant combo have engineered a sound that is unquestionably sharp and hard-hitting, while still boasting evocative melodies that are guaranteed to grab the attention of a wide range of music fans.
 
Born in 2010 and hailing from Manchester, Black Market Serotonin feature the talents of Andrew Pimblott  (Vocals, Guitars, Keyboards/Samples), Lee Campbell (Bass Guitar), and Michael Colman (Drums/Percussion). The trio met during their University days, and aided by their mutual fondness for thoughtful and progressive rock, they soon became firm friends. After many months of intense rehearsals in Michael Colman’s basement, fuelled by caffeine, sleep depravation, and a lack of light, the band emerged with their debut EP Deadbyfiveoclock. The record was released in the Spring of 2011 and garnered widespread praise and accolades from many online publications and bloggers. 
 
Inspired by the EP’s success, Black Market Serotonin soon began work on their full length debut album. With no budget for a record, the band managed to snag recording time at SSR Manchester (courtesy of Andy's evenings and weekends spent studying sound engineering there). Pimblott also mixed it at his home in a bid to reduce costs and in order to retain artistic creativity. The enterprising threesome finally completed the album at the tail end of 2012 and decided on the apt title of Something From Nothing.
 
Now with indie label Superstar Destroyer putting out the record, Something From Nothing will be unleashed on the nation this Spring as a free download or on CD via their website or for purchase through all the usual online retailers. A highly impressive collection of eleven focussed cuts of modern rock, Something From Nothing is a bold statement to say the least. From the off, opener ‘Singularity' sets the tone with its concoction of fuzzed up synth and guitar interplay complimented by sweeping samples and driving beats. Next, the throbbing groove and sheer power of ‘Deadbyfiveoclock’ drills home pounding riffery, as Pimblott delivers a stunning Reznor-esque vocal performance that rips straight into your cranium. ‘The End Of History’ continues in rich form with impressive dynamics and a killer refrain, while their new video single ‘Irons In the Fire’ showcases the band’s deft ability to unleash a concise piece of engaging post-rock with measured synth work and vocal lines, all to stunning effect. The dreamy and melodic ‘Purity’ is certainly a grower, but there’s no denying its unpretentious delicateness serves as a respite at the mid-point of the record. The daring, imaginative and expansive ‘Something From Nothing, parts I-V’ then takes you on an epic voyage through a barren aural landscape where majestic rock-faces of guitars loom large over subtle moments of engrossing atmospherics and haunting beauty. Lastly, the enchanting acoustic flavourings of ‘Hours’ brings the album to an absorbing close and completes a journey that is undoubtedly challenging, but ultimately totally compelling.
