Jonestown was formed in winter 2013 and quickly wrote and recorded their debut EP, “The Erebus and the Terror” which was self-released in 2014. Within their first two years Jonestown performed at a variety of well known UK festivals and supported various established metal bands from around the world. In 2016 they released their first full-length album “Aokigahara” through Siege Records. In 2017 they started writing for the successor, which is now called “Dyatlov”. The album covers many different styles and sub-genres, both within and outside metal, taking influences from obvious contemporaries such as Gojira, Lamb of God, Slipknot, Strapping Young Lad and Meshuggah whilst also taking inspiration from external sources such as film scores and progressive rock. Dyatlov is lyrically about the internal and external war and the individual’s inability to win yet still continue regardless.
