The first steps of the modern metal quintet from Frankfurt am Main, Germany seemed to be easier as for many other young artists because all members are firmly anchored in the networks of their home area and the scene. The self-released single “The Arrival” was enough to bring the band to stage with FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, NOVELISTS and CARCER CITY. Thereupon, OF COLOURS took their first festival summer by storm: not only they played the TRAFFIC JAM OPEN AIR but also the RELOAD FESTIVAL after they had confidently won the festivals own newcomer contest.
After that, the next big step was already in sight: with the release of their single “Oblivion”, OF COLOURS announced their signing to the well-known German label REDFIELD RECORDS in November of 2017. By that, they paved way for the release of their debut-record “Entelechy” which was produced by Kristian ‘Kohle’ Kohlmannslehner (POWERWOLF, ABORTED, CREMATORY, ALL FOR NOTHING, ESKIMO CALLBOY etc.) in the high-valued Kohlekeller Studios.
In April of 2018, OF COLOURS didn’t just play a modest release show for their debut-album, but invited their fans to their own indoor festival in Frankfurt. The subsequent “Entelechy”-release-tour throughout Germany was followed by many festival appearances at home and abroad.
With passionate ambition and driven by the desire to create their own brand of Modern Heavy, OF COLOURS are determined to leave a deep mark in today’s scenery and to convince every crowd with an energetic, emotional and distinctive performance. To this day, they shared stage with modern heavy flagships such as JINJER, BURY TOMORROW, WHITECHAPEL, ANY GIVEN DAY and traditional combos such as SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.
For “Bleak” and “All I Gave”, the first new tracks since “Entelechy”, OF COLOURS seem to have turned off the lights completely and they proudly present the bruises you can get from the rough edges of their sound.
NO EUPHEMISMS. NO BORING, TOO OFTEN HEARD MEDIOCRITY. ABSOLUTE TRUTH AND OPENNESS.
