Biography

Sanguine are a four piece female fronted alt-metal rock band hailing from the gritty streets of the UK. Formed by singer Tarin Kerrey whilst studying at Exeter University, this fiercely independent DIY act put together what would later be described by the press as the most 'explosive', 'intimidating' and 'brutal' live act in the Southwest.
Coming from a mixture of diverse musical backgrounds Sanguine intended to create songs that range from hard-metal, punk-edged tunes to epic gothic rock-ballads. This eclectic sound is what separates Sanguine from other bands and has become their signature hallmark.
"Sanguine are on a mission to break down the walls that divide the genre's and show the world that you can be anything you want to be - as long as it has fire, passion and kicks ass!" Tarin Kerrey.
The reputation of Sanguine's explosive live shows spread fast throughout the southwest region and realising that they were on to something special, they immediately set about recording their first set of demo's in the loft of Tarin's house.
From these sessions came the release of their debut single and video "Live Consume Drive". The video was quickly snapped up and play-listed by some of the UK's top music TV channels such as: Scuzz, Kerrang and Metal Choons.
The Fly magazine dubbed the video as the "best video they had seen from an unsigned band" and it also gained radio play from stations such as XFM, Total Rock and even Music Choice.
With a total budget of £600 (song and video) 'Live, Consume, Drive' is DIY at it's best!!
The music is original, the songs are rememberable and on stage the attitude is intimidating. Sanguine are set to carve a new sound for female-fronted alt-metal acts world-wide.
Sanguine have already attracted the attentions of Metal Legends such as Joey Jordison (Slipknot) "You have some sweet tracks up there!" (Joey's comment on Sanguine's Myspace page) and Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden) who recently asked to Tarin to guest vocal on his side-project starring vocalist Mikee Goodman (Sixth). Along with approval from magazines such as Rocksound (8/10 Demo Review & 9/10 Live Review) and Metal Hammer (7/10):
I"Dark metal, screaming and schizophrenic sounds are given a very British edge, whilst sultry frontwoman Tarin Kerrey's bitter-sweet delivery adds a fresh dimension to their music as she alternates between blood-curdling howls and clean yet powerful vocals...their brutal fuck-you delivery leaves the crowd exhausted but screaming for more." (Metal Hammer magazine).
With the next EP and video due to be released in 2011 and appearances planned for Bloodstock Festival and London's famous 'Water Rats' venue, the music industry holds it's breath to see what Sanguine will do next. 2011 looks as if it's going to be an interesting year for this female-fronted phenomenon.
