Formed in 2006 by vocalist Ilia Badrov The Fading claimed prominence following their victory at the world renown Wacken Metal Battle. Representing Israel at the ‘Heavy Metal Mecca’ earned The Fading a record contract with Wacken Records and just months later the band were holed up at the Underground Studio tracking their debut album. One year on from their Wacken 2008 appearance, the band released In Sin We’ll Find Salvation to critical acclaim.
The years that followed would see the band hit the road hard, sharing stages with leading acts such as In Flames, Children Of Bodom, Arch Enemy, Ensiferum, Misery Index, Evile, Warbringer and more as well as headlining tours across Eastern Europe & Russia, before taking time out to write and record a follow up album. Early 2013 saw the completion of that record, and one whIch would be entitled Till Life Do Us Part. The album was later recorded at A.G. Studio in Israel and self-produced by the band with the mix and master overseen by Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studios. The album however wouldn’t see its official release until 29th December of 2015.
Artwork for the album and an animated video for the title track was produced by the talented Israeli animation artist, Tim Razumovsky.

Testament to the influence of genre pioneers such as In Flames and Dark Tranquillity, The Fading are another band to draw influence from the Gothenburg area. However The Fading make it their own and punch just as hard as their peers if not harder. Technical prowess, clever arrangements, and enough hooks and earmworm melodies to have one listen leave this album resonating for days in your head. This is an intelligent band, proving there is still space to carve out of an ageing genre.
Last year also saw The Fading headline Tbilisi Jam! Festival in Georgia alongside Vader, Diary Of Dreams and Dead By April. The band also supported Five Finger Death Punch across Russia before embarking on a full scale Eastern Europe tour, supporting British metal heavyweights, Bring Me The Horizon.
As the near year dawns, The Fading have set their sights on the west once again with their brand of infectious melodic death metal, and with the new single ‘Chasing Time’ out now, this is one band to keep within your sights.
