Band of the Week: Semperfi

Modern metal band Semperfi feature on shmuFM

This week on shmuFM, our Band of the Week is local modern metal group Semperfi! You can hear the guys live on the Band Of The Week Show on Monday the 19th of May from 8-10pm. 

Formed in late 2008, right here in Aberdeen, Semperfi have effectively created the foundations of a strong, solid modern metal band.  Since their early beginnings, Semperfi have fashioned their own unique metal sound by blending together many musical influences – and not just from the metal genre.  Each members' musical tastes are as wide and varied as the next, which adds depth, diversity and a wide spectrum of colours to Semperfi’s songwriting and creative flair.

Over the past year, Semperfi have proven their worth as a professional metal act.  Finishing 1st place out of 700+ unsigned bands in a UK-wide competition saw them secure a slot at the prestigious Download Festival – an opportunity to showcase their talents, which they grasped firmly with both hands.  They’re set to release their new EP Polaris on Saturday – but you can hear it before its release, right here on shmuFM.

You can hear Semperfi's tracks on any of our live shows by getting in contact with the studio on 01224 483413, by texting 60300 (type SHMU, leave a space and then your message) or by emailing  You'll also hear a track from Semperfi's new EP on each of our Breakfast, Packed Lunch and Cruise Control shows all week.

As always, the Band Of The Week Show is repeated every Friday at midnight until 2am on 99.8FM, and you can listen to the show here on our website using the live stream or Listen Again feature.
