Hot New Band: She Must Burn
Symphonic brutes She Must Burn are black metal’s new breed.
Destructive black metal and gentle female vocals might be an unusual mix, but for singer and keyboardist Aimy Miller, southern English metal outfit She Must Burn answers a calling she’s been chasing for some time.
“It’s something we’ve all wanted to do since we were in the womb: we all came out playing instruments,” Aimy jokes. “Me and Terry [Clarke, guitars] grew up on black metal, so when we bumped into each other at a club two years ago and he suggested getting a band together, I knew this was something I wanted.”
The band are an incendiary combination of vicious fretwork and perilous drums. “She Must Burn is malevolent but pretty at the same time,” notes Aimy. “We think carefully about what we’re writing because if you don’t have that conviction, it makes your lyrics meaningless.”
