Vocalist Kaan Tasan comments:
“‘Devour me’ is written about tearing into open wounds to try and find answers, but only ending up exactly where you were before. The familiar feeling of being torn apart, getting nowhere and then being discarded.

Heart Of A Coward released their debut album, Hope and Hindrance in 2012, which received critical acclaim and helped establish the band’s sound and style. They have since released several other albums, including Severance (2013), Deliverance (2015), and The Disconnect (2019).
Heart Of A Coward‘s newest album takes a bold, accessible turn, drawing heavily from metalcore influences as opposed to their previous leanings towards the progressive. This switch creates an inviting atmosphere for listeners, bridging the gap between band and audience. The album ranges from mellifluous, soft tunes to visceral, hard-hitting tracks, each polished with striking details that add layers of depth and complexity.
At its core, This Place Only Brings Death contemplates the inevitable theme of all comes to an end, a sobering reality explored through their masterful music. This unique blend of accessibility and thematic intensity presents a fresh take on the band’s signature style, marking a crucial milestone in their evolving musical journey.
Throughout their career, Heart Of A Coward have toured extensively, performing at various festivals and sharing stages with many popular metal bands. Their music has gained a significant following, particularly in the UK metal scene, and they continue to be a prominent force in the genre.
