A five piece, twin guitar band in the classic mould of Saxon, Judas Priest, Def Leppard et al, Morpheus Rising add a modern twist to British Heavy Rock with Prog, Goth, Thrash and the US metal/rock scene also being cited. The New Wave of British Heavy Metal dragged kicking and screaming into the new millennium. NWoBHM!?

Heavily influenced by bands such as Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and Alter Bridge both musically and visually, Morpheus Rising produce an energetic show which will keep the old guard happy and show the new generation how it's done. Central to the band's sound is the twin guitar partnership of Pete Harwood and Daymo Sweeting, coupled with dynamic and melodic songwriting, from the balls out NWoBHM rock of Lord of the North to the lighter, more radio friendly Those Who Watch.
