SEVERANCE is a gothic rock band out of Monterrey, Mexico that is strongly influenced by dark 80s Post-Punk and New Wave but with a distinctive quality all their own. Their sound has been shaped by the likes of The Sisters of Mercy, The Mission and Fields of the Nephilim, but also Iggy Pop, Type O Negative. They have been putting out material since 2013 and have had a nice following in Latin America.
Their first single “New Cult” (off the debut album,THRESHOLDS) was heard and well-received worldwide within just a couple weeks after numerous international radio show podcasts. As well, it received praise from noted musicians of the second wave of Goth Rock. With evocative lyrics, intricate and powerful vocals and guitar, potent bass and drums, and subtle and explosive dynamics, their songs are unique dark rock with an evident edge.
The members — Rul Delirio (vox, lyrics,
guitar), Carlo “Bam-Bam” Vargas (guitar),
