Remember VICIOUS BLADE from Pittsburgh/PA-USA ? Last year, i had conducted an interview with vocalist Clarissa BALDINI after the band released their first and very promising debut, very impressive at the crossroads of THRASH, CRUST, D-BEAT styles ! Today, the band returns with a new EP called "Siege of Cruelty" featuring five tracks of relentless, blackened thrash metal, with still the aforementioned influences. No filler on this recording, just an assault that fuses Thrash, D-Beat and Punk with blazing aggression that will want to make you rip your face off ! This new EP (available on CASSETTE and CD formats) will be out in 2 days on OUR ANCIENT FUTURE Records.
To support this new release, the band also released a video for the title track "Siege Of Cruelty" - MAKE your EYES BLEED !
Born 1969, grew up with the NWOBHM sounds, musically educated with cult french magazines that were ENFER and METAL ATTACK, definitely nailed to the style when "The Number Of The Beast" by IRON MAIDEN was released... From 1982, it was clear life would never be the same ! Young & getting wild to the HEAVY sounds of SAXON, VENOM, BLACK SABBATH, MOTORHEAD, Young Fab also discovered thanks to school mates the NOISE, FILTH & FURY of Hard-Core/Punk bands like G.B.H, DISCHARGE, BROKEN BONES but also CRO-MAGS, BAD BRAINS, FUGAZI... and later on, through the 90's, everything that was ALTERNATIVE, EXPERIMENTAL, GRUNGE, INDUSTRIAL (SONIC YOUTH, NINE INCH NAILS, SOUDGARDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS)... Passion & curiosity grew up as years went by ... Fate was SEALED... no turning back ! No Music = No Life !
