Shackles Set To Release New Album Hatred’s Reservoir On November 6th

Following an extended hiatus in the recording sphere, Byron Bay’s deathly brutal hardcore outfit SHACKLES return to set a crushing new precedent with their latest LP, ‘Hatreds Reservoir’. The album will be released on Friday November 6th, through iconic label Resist Records (Parkway Drive, Polaris)

The band have laid down thirteen tracks of pure distilled grinding barbarity that takes immediate cues from Death Metal, Grindcore, Hardcore and Power Violence, while producing a mutant synthesis of them all.

That’s by their own description and pretty much hits the nail on the head. I’m a big Grindcore fan so to my ears it’s slightly more that style than the others but the death/hardcore influences are quite clear at times and really add to the overall feel of the album. Grindcore for some can get a bit samey but certainly not the case here!

At no point did I ever consider skipping forward a track and my thought when it concluded was to start it again. It’s that good!
Granted the songs are short but that’s taking nothing away from this excellent album!

The band have released two tracks prior to the albums release. The title track Hatred’s Reservoir and Not As They Appear, both of which we are including here. I think overall they give a good indication of the album as a whole.

This is the best Grindcore album I’ve heard in a long time without doubt and one I’ll return to again and again!
