Neshiima - Heavy Metal Live Act in Glasgow

Neshiima Short Info

The band began life as a recording project for Liam Hesslewood. Following a
turbulent 2012, there was an outpouring of creativity that resulted in an albums
worth of material. A varied selection of melody driven metal songs and softer
ballads, with massive potential. All that was needed was a band to develop and play
the songs.

Upon recruiting Calum Stansfield, Craig Rankin and Danny Cameron over the space
of 3-4 months, a massive overhaul of the demo’s recorded and musical style began.
This led to a heavier, groovier overall sound with huge choruses, dark ambient
passages and a vocal style, which can soothe you or spit in your face.

Neshiima hit the local live scene in October 2013 as the main support for Skyharbor
(Basick Records). This show was incredibly successful and would be a platform to
help showcase the band in the early stages.

Jump forward to April 2014 and massive steps forward have been taken. The band
released our debut EP ‘Distance’. Featuring the singles ‘Rebuild’ and ‘Madness’ and
was released with a full merchandise range.

At this point we had gathered a small but loyal following in Glasgow that is ever
growing. Neshiima had now shared the stage with various worldwide artists such as
DJ Lethal (ex-Limp Bizkit), Uneven Structure and Hacride.

The rest of 2014 consisted of playing as many shows up and down the UK as possible
to build our fanbase.

At the beginning of 2015, before embarking on work for our forthcoming EP "Beware of Gifts," Andrew Macdonald joined the band. This was to play guitar, so as to relieve Liam so he could focus solely on vocals, which were becoming increasingly difficult in the new material. This all benefitted the band, and now we are a solid 5 piece in a live setting; using ALL available space to make it a gig to remember.

We have shared the stage with a variety of new and well-
known UK artists, such as Empress AD, Uneven Structure, Skyharbor, Here Comes a Warning, Malefice, Exist Immortal, Nexilva, To Kill Achilles, Mountains Under Oceans, AlteredSky, Halo Tora,
Huxtable, DIVIDES, Akord and From Sorrow To Serenity.
