ENTWINED (ENGLAND)


When Mortal Tide split in September 1995 each of the members went their own separate ways. None were particularly bothered. The band had been going nowhere, and, if they were honest, the music wasn't too hot. Steve went off to university in Southampton, Lee and Simon to Anglia. James carried on working in Colchester. However, the seeds had been sown, and a lengthy phone conversation between Steve and Lee just before Christmas 95 led the guys to give it another go, this time properly. Steve and Lee got together with the promise to make a go of it . James and Sim on were re-integrated, and the line-up was back. This was to be a new band - with completely new songs and ideas. A new name was taken, Entwined, originally an idea for a song title, but which summed up the new bands direction. 2 weeks later the band were in the studio recording their debut demo, "XIII" in 5 hours and several beers! With a demo, and a few gigs on the local circuit, Entwined began to look beyond Colchester. After sending a copy of "XIII" to the Devil's Church, the band were booked to open for Dominion. In the meantime, the band recruited keyboard player Mark Royce as a full time writing member, and the different edge Mark gave helped enhance the bands sound even more. Entwined moved into the more advanced 'Adelaide Studios' to begin recording their second demo, 'Her Cherished Mask'. The result was a sonic masterpiece, and the production was dubbed "probably the most professional I've ever heard on a demo". The band received a phone call from Steve Green of Unknown Territory - perhaps the man responsible for discovering Entwined back in the early raw "XIII" days. Steve informed them that a large UK label were interested in coming to see them. A demo was quickly rushed off to the interested party, and at the gig the bands management met with the label representative and the meeting was set for a week later. Several months of contractual negotiations were to take place, before England's finest set pen to paper to ink a long term deal with Earache Records. During the summer the band wrote and rehearsed material for their debut album, recording it in October '97
