"Taste The Blood" video & free mp3 download

First up, thanks a lot for the masses of awesome messages you've left us.... firstly, for Luke joining Iced Earth with effect from June & secondly, for Chris & Martin with their new band project. Remember that Fury UK doesn't end it just goes on-hold until such time as Chris, Luke & Martin are available & ready to do something together again.

Most importantly today here we have the new Fury UK video & free mp3 download of the new song "Taste The Blood". The video was filmed over 3 shows - Hammerfest, North Wales, in March, then the 2 Belgium shows, PPM Fest (Mons) & De Verlichte Geest (Roeselare), earlier in April. The song is a giveaway as a small thank you to all of you guys for the awesome support. There's no immediate or likely plans for the song to be on a CD in the foreseeable future so grab it while you can! :)

Just click on the mp3 button below to get your free download of the "Taste The Blood" track.

Looking forward to seeing you out there as we continue our "Death By Lightning" Tour dates throughout April & May. See the full tour list at

Thanks as always \m/ \m/

Bassist Luke Appleton joins Iced Earth.
Fury UK announce free mp3 download.
New project for Chris Appleton & Martin McNee.

British metal band Fury UK proudly announces that bassist Luke Appleton is to join US metal powerhouse Iced Earth, with whom the band toured across Europe last winter. Luke replaces Freddie Vidales who has announced his intention to retire from Iced Earth after completion of the band's Chinese shows this April.

Luke's debut shows with Iced Earth will include....

June 16, 2012
Bangalore Open Air

August 19, 2012
Kourion Amphitheater

The Cyprus show is being filmed & recorded for an upcoming DVD/CD release.

Meanwhile, Fury UK founder-member & lead vocalist/lead guitarist Chris Appleton has recently begun work on a new band, along with Fury UK drummer Martin McNee. More announcements on this are coming very soon but Chris explains initially....

"Having known for a week or two about Luke's fantastic opportunity with Iced Earth & in any case, always hungry to try something different, Martin & myself have laid plans for a new British metal band. The key difference from Fury UK is this new band will feature a 2nd lead guitarist so I'll be exploring my love for twin lead guitar in the great British tradition of bands like Iron Maiden & Irish rockers Thin Lizzy"

Naturally, this news will have an impact on plans for Fury UK from June onwards & they'll have more details on that soon. Meantime, they confirm the band's UK & European shows during April & May will all go ahead as planned, with Luke in place. At the same time they also want to make it clear that the announcements today do not spell the end for Fury UK.

A brand new Fury UK track "Taste The Blood" will be available to fans as a free mp3 download during the next couple of weeks, with a video also put together from the recent performances at Hammerfest (N.Wales), PPM Fest (Belgium) & Roeselare (Belgium).


Thanks as always. We look forward to seeing you all out there on the April & May tour dates
