– encompassed by guitarists Chris and Julius, vocalist Chris, drummer Max and bassist Tobias – are one of the newest additions to the Arising Empire roster. Hailing from Hamburg, Germany, the metalcore five piece was founded in October 2018 after the demise of each others local bands.

In two years time, the band has been able to make an impact in the music scene by self producing music and videos to display their intensive and energetic demeanor. Debuting with four singles to start, It was their latest single ‚Exitwound‚ (featuring Jack Bergin of VOID OF VISION) that gave the group a breakthrough and landed the band in the spotlight of KNOTFEST’s “Countdown to Oblivion“.

Today Half Me drop their second single ‚Wraith‚ in cooperation with Arising Empire.
Wraith‚ is the repercussion of a traumatic episode. In a cry for solidarity, the isolation turns out to fuel the infectious progression of something that is vague and hard to pin down – but it exists. Every single thought aggravates a vicious downward spiral while nobody else is able to understand. In this state of being pushed away from everyone, ‚Wraith‚ describes this entity that is growing and slowly becoming a part of you.

Watch/stream ‚Wraith‚ NOW

We are more than excited to finally present WRAITH.
This song is built on the suffocating repercussions of the episode that TRAUMA CULTURE is. A hammering emptiness followed by a sense of losing control.
 Theme & Lyrics  The overall theme is acknowledging that some things are just not right in the way they are right now. Disregarded by the public opinion, isolated and dying from the inside. It is a somatic feeling as a result of trauma sinking in.

„Bury your fangs, deep inside my skin.“

A conversation with yourself while sensing a danger without physical form. Accepting what is about to happen, no matter the outcome. This is what to expect.

„Monologue of misery“

It is a downward spiral that knows no limits. When this inner conversation you have is getting more and more extreme and just leaves you wondering: Am I talking to someone else?

We wanted to encapsulate that defining feeling not only lyrically but with the sound as well.

Half Me will support their label mates in The Oklahoma Kid on the »Tangerine Tragic Tour« this fall together with Liotta Seoul.

Musically, the band blends a modern rendition of metal and hardcore with highlights of 90’s nu-metal. Pounding riffs and breakdowns are accompanied by brutal, yet sometimes elegant, vocals that all balance together to formulate the band’s own distinctive sound.

Riding the high of their recent success, Half Me has sights set on releasing their highly anticipated debut album in 2022 and are sure to make it worth the wait.
