EP Stream Exclusive: Self Titled Debut EP From Dublin Based Progressive Metal Band ‘Sectile’

 

 

Sectile, a five-piece progressive metal band from Dublin, Ireland, and today we exclusively stream their eagerly awaited debut release.  The EP will be independently launched on the 10th of November and made available on all online platforms as well as limited-edition physical copies. 

The 4-song EP contains some of the band’s earliest compositions – including their signature live track ‘A Fool’s Reward’, previously released ‘Invisible Threads’ the catchy riff-driven ‘Silver Moon’, and the melodically-driven crescendo of ‘Comes With The Rain’.

The album artwork is an original illustration by the band’s singer Gabriel Gaba, showing a modernised take on the Roman ‘opus sectile’ mosaic piece ‘Tigress attacking a calf (325–350 AD)’ which inspired the band’s name.

Sectile came into the Dublin scene early 2017, playing their second-ever gig in the Irish edition of the ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ battle of the bands which awards a set at Bloodstock Festival in the UK. Seemingly from out of nowhere the band made it to the final, receiving abundantly positive reviews in the process. With this first studio release, Sectile plans to build a strong foundation looking ahead to 2018.

Check it out here in full. It’s a truly excellent EP and among the finest releases in Prog metal this year! 

 

 

Sectile are a five-piece progressive metal band from Dublin, Ireland. Drawing inspiration from a medley of different musical backgrounds, the classics up to contemporary metal, they are wholly committed to their songwriting craft: from light to dark, the band revels in every part of the spectrum, seamlessly alternating between soaring soundscapes, heavy ear-worms, to hard-hitting riffage.

The band was officially formed in November 2016 but it started a few months prior as an online collaboration between Mark O’Reilly (guitar), Cormac Hennigan (bass) and singer / lyricist Gabriel Gaba, whom they found online. Before long the trio realised that the affinity of their collective musical interest was not to be taken lightly. After recruiting Zachary Newman for drum duties the project gained a life of its own and evolved into an ambitious soon-to-be live band. Second axeman Michael Sheridan joined the group in 2017 after a few line-up changes.

Sectile’s prologue quickly became intertwined with the Irish edition of the ‘Metal 2 The Masses’, as decisions upon the band’s name, the recording and launch of their first demo song ‘A Fool’s Reward’ were motivated by the event’s sign-up deadline. The band played their first gig in the legendary Dublin metal bar, Fibber Magees, on a Thursday night. Ten days later, their second-ever gig in M2TM. From seemingly out of nowhere the band made it to the final, receiving abundantly positive reviews in the process.

Sectile spent a good part of 2017 recording their self-titled 4-song debut EP, to be launched one year after the band’s officially announced their existence. With this first studio release, Sectile plans to build a strong foundation looking ahead to 2018.

Current line-up:
Mark O’Reilly – Guitar
Cormac Hennigan – Bass
Gabriel Gaba – Vocals
Zachary Newman – Drums
Michael Sheridan – Guitar

SIGNS OF THE SWARM: The Disfigurement Of Existence From Pittsburgh Death Legion Out Now Via Unique Leader. Stream In Full Within

 

 

“…a record that tears away with absolute carnage and raw brutality…” — Metal Injection

 

The Disfigurement Of Existence full-length from Pittsburgh death legion SIGNS OF THE SWARM is out now via Unique Leader.

 

Order bundles are available at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE
 

In an 8.5/10 review, Metal Injection lauds, “a truly awesome record,” furthering, “It’s a proven testament that musicians can take the deathcore formula and give it a fresh spin. Each track comes with its own individuality, balancing a range of sound and style that keeps the album progressing at an ever building bedlam. By presenting hellish gutturals and screams, along with vicious instrumentation, SIGNS OF THE SWARM can be proud knowing they’ve created a record that tears away with absolute carnage and raw brutality.” Of the track “Final Phase,” featuring Dickie Allen of Abiotic and Infant Annihilator, Decibel hails, “super-low gutturals, huge-sounding riffs, and a spine-crushing rhythm section.” In a perfect 10/10 rating, New Transcendence writes, “The Disfigurement Of Existence takes everything you think you know about heavy music and disfigures it, leaving the listener with one of the finest displays of slam-tinted, technical and brutal deathcore ever created.” Adds Metal Nexus, “The Disfigurement Of Existence is going to change the way you look at deathcore… They have perfected the slamming aspect and combined it with the best sides of deathcore with breakdowns, melodic riffs, and filthy vocal techniques. There a lot of bands but none are like SIGNS OF THE SWARM.”

 

The Disfigurement Of Existence‘s ten tracks were mixed and mastered by Phil Pluskota (Abiotic, King Conquer) of Sonic Assult Studios in Cape Corral, Florida and comes swathed in the cover renderings of Par Olaffson (Aborted, Abysmal Dawn, Revocation, Immolation et al).

 

Said SIGNS OF THE SWARM vocalist CJ McCreery, “Our first album Senseless Order was mainly to get the point across that we know how to bring the heavy. A lot of the songs were fairly slow and nothing really stood out as far as appealing to anyone more than the standard ‘deathcore’ fan base. For The Disfigurement Of Existence, we all dove into our own craft and stepped our game up  one-hundred-percent individually to really bring this album together and be more than just a standard ‘deathcore’ band. We got our new guitarist (Jacob Toy) and drummer (Jimmy Pino) right when we started the writing process for The Disfigurement Of Existence and immediately realized that all of our minds working together could make an absolutely insane album, and I feel like we accomplished that goal. The guitar riffs are way more intricate, Jimmy’s drumming is fucking batshit crazy, and I made sure to really step it up vocally and lyrically. An unbelievable amount of work, sweat, and tears and probably blood at some point too went into this album and we are so excited to finally release it to everyone and show what we are now capable of.”

IRON MONKEY Shares New Video For “Toadcrucifier – R.I.P.PER;” 9-13 Out Now On Relapse Records

 

 

Cult UK doom/sludge outfit IRON MONKEY is pleased to unveil the official video for “Toadcrucifier – R.I.P.PER.” The track comes by way of the band’s recently-issued 9-13 full-length out now on Relapse Records.

Issues IRON MONKEY‘s J. Rushby, King Of Sludge. “Hello Vomit… Welcome to the exploding black nitro-filth of the ‘Toadcrucifier – R.I.P.PER’ video. Enjoy the maximum speed doom attack ov raw meat rorschaaaax and eyedeath. Hail Moreland Street!”

 Adds No Echo of “Toadcrucifier – R.I.P.PER,” “Rushby’s diseased-sounding vocals are not far removed from Morrow’s… If anything, Rushby might sound even more deranged than his late bandmate. On ‘Toadcrucifier – R.I.P.PER,’ he’s at his nastiest, delivering the lyrics like a homicidal maniac who just escaped an English mental institution.”

 

 

9-13 is available on CD, LP, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital orders are available via Relapse.com HERE and all retail outlets HERE.  

 

After disbanding in 1999, IRON MONKEY has reformed for phase two of their mission. Recorded in their hometown of Nottingham in spring 2017 A.D. with producer Johnny A. Carter, 9-13 is nine songs and forty-eight minutes of total nihilism. Now older, more cynical, and more isolationist, IRON MONKEY are back to usurp the scene, then crush it’s skull. Without question, their most focused, aggressive and direct material to date, 9-13 is an all-out assault of violent hatred and nightmarish negativity. Recommended listening for fans of pain, suffering, and misanthropy.

 

IRON MONKEY was beaten to life in the year of your Lord, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-four, at the location of Nottingham, England. The original members were named: J.P.. Morrow, J. Rushby, S. Watson, D. Dalziel, and J. Greaves. Influences were primarily Eyehategod, Buzzov*en, Floor, Grief, and various hardcore punks and heavy metals.

 

IRON MONKEY shit out six disgusting tracks of raw sludge-core that were released on the Union Mill label then later on Earache Records. During this period, S. Watson was thrown out and replaced by God’s lonely man, Dean Berry. Nineteen ninety-eight saw the release of the album Our Problem, also on Earache Records, a masterpiece of negative rock that instigated peace on earth and goodwill to all men. This was succeeded by a split release on Man’s Ruin Records with Church Of Misery from Japan. J. Rushby soon abdicated and the band found a replacement in the manner of S. O’hara of Acrimony. IRON MONKEY was destroyed sometime in nineteen ninety-nine. Vocal terror J. P. Morrow died of a heart attack in June of two thousand and two. Rest in noise.

 

The band reformed for no reason in the winter of two thousand sixteen with original members J. Rushby and S. Watson, with the addition of current Chaos UK drummer Brigga, forming the shape of an inverted black triangle of vitriol and phase two of operations. IRON MONKEY do not care about your scene, bands, or opinions… ELECTROCUTION, DOOM, OMEGA OMEGA OMEGA. – J. Rushby, Two Thousand Seventeen
