Tigerpunch – Fight Of Your Life

Tigerpunch Online Promo shot

Colliding metal voracity with the ferocity of heavy rock and then binding it with salacious grooves, UK rockers Tigerpunch show themselves to be an attention seeking and immensely satisfying proposition through their debut release. Made up of five slabs of rock ‘n’ roll afraid to stomp and fling their attributes around with mischievous abandon, the Fight Of Your Life EP is an instant enjoyment, though at first it is more a “nice, but…” encounter than a “wow” moment. Over time though as open craft and invention shines through the surface alongside lyrical devilment, the release emerges as a potent and addictive romp which may not be a classic but certainly is an encounter drawing attention back time and time again.

Wolverhampton’s Tigerpunch was brought to life by brothers Rich Reynolds (guitar/ vocals) and Jay Wolfwood (bass), its name grabbed from the movie Kung Fu Panda and inspirations from the likes of The Foo Fighters, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, and Nirvana. The line-up, after a search, was completed by drummer Russell Latham and swiftly the trio set about audiences to earn a rich reputation for their live performances, shows which has seen them play with I Am Giant amongst many. Fight Of Your Life is their first swipe at national attention and such the formidable revelry and fiery energy within it, the EP is a sure fire focus stealing introduction to the raucous treats of the band.

The release erupts into thunderous life with My Pet, Hate, and a wall of heavy handed beats and caustic riffs entwined with an immediately spicy groove. The vocals of Reynolds are just as swift with their entrance and devilish character, tigerpuncha mischief fuelled tone soaking every syllable as guitars flirt with ears behind them. The song proceeds to thrust its rhythmic hips and bruising tenacity through ears whilst grooves and a flavoursome solo add to the riveting colour of the song. Is it, much as the EP, offering anything dramatically original, no not really, but does it emerge as a contagious and rather irresistible rampage, you bet.

The following Blonde, as its predecessor, is bred from heavy metal and groove rock seeds, and is soon brushing ears with raw and vivacious flames of sonic enterprise and rhythmic confrontation. Riffs abrase and guitar endeavour sizzles throughout the song, whilst the drums beat a submission from the senses as everything becomes entwined in addictive and richly hued grooves. The track has little difficulty in capturing imagination and neck muscles before making way for the more intensive but no less infectious examination of I Am Alive. Whereas the first pair of songs shows their melodic and heavy metal breeding, the third track moves into a grungier area. Employing essences found in Alice In Chains and Gruntruck, the song prowls around ears with acidic colouring to its melodies and grooved temptation. It is another side to the sound and intent of the band, seemingly a more serious and predacious edge coming into play, though inescapable hooks and those ever gripping grooves are just as prevalent in the tempestuous presence of the excellent song.

A sultry air immediately soaks the senses as a broody funk laced bassline hits ears with the entrance of next up Takedown The Bull. It is an instantly riveting start which soon evolves into a Rage Against The Machine stroll with a Pantera like southern grooving to its scenery. The track smoulders and shimmers rigorously within its unrelenting slow heavy crawl, brewing up a tasty boiling of sonic intrigue and melodic causticity. Once more it is hard to claim there is much new on display but for pleasure and accomplished enterprise the song lights the passions.

The EP is closed by Serve The Freakshow, a track opening on a vicious rally of rhythms before casting its own heavy grooving and rhythmic antagonism. It is brewed from the same vat of endeavour as the previous song but equally employs the more classic ingredients found in the opening pair of tracks. It is the weakest song on Fight For Your Life but still another thoroughly enjoyable and easy to engage with brawl to bring the release to a flavoursome close.

Fight For Your Life holds little in the way of surprises but everything about it and the adventure that is Tigerpunch, eventually leaves you wanting more. For the first jab from the band, this is one potent and highly likeable dust-up.

The self-released Fight Of Your Life EP is available from 20th October through all digital stores.

DIE NO MORE unleash their ‘Elected Evil’, on 3rd November via Rocksector Records‏

Die No More Online Promo Shot
ASCENDING BRIT METAL CREW DIE NO MORE RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM

UK metallers ‘DIE NO MORE’ have just signed to Rocksector Records and they unleash their debut album ‘Elected Evil’ worldwide on Monday 3rd November, through all good stores.

Bursting out of Penrith, Cumbria, UK newcomers Die No More merge together a formidable sound which lifts from the Bay Area Thrash metal scene and fuses elements of such intensity they call to mind legendary British bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Saxon. Born in 2011 and consisting of four friends who had, and still have, the same passion for creating modern metal that also acknowledges classic influences, Die No More’s sound is heavy, yet melodic, and it grabs a hold of you with its jack hammer guitar riffs and frenetic solos. While reminiscent of the greats, they bring a fresh and hugely enjoyable slab of Thrash Metal to a young audience.

The band’s rise has been progressive and certainly productive. Last September they unleashed their debut EP ‘Blueprint’ which secured wide praise throughout the metal underground. The record also gained the attention of Rocksector Records who swiftly signed the band to their roster. The quartet continued to successfully hit the live circuit before heading back into Axis Studios to work again with revered producer Matt Elllis (Black Spiders, Absolva and Massive Wagons) for their soon to be released debut album ‘Elected Evil’. Yet again, the band have pulled it out of the bag. The album is rammed with eight beefy metal cuts, from their new single ‘Dark World’, which hammers at your eardrums with true grit and conviction, to the dynamic and driving ‘Absentia’. ‘One In The Chamber’ further showcases the foursome’s craft and guile. Now with European dates and a UK tour confirmed to support the album, the band are destined to break the UK metal scene.

Target: Renegades – [Press Start]

10436323_663689893723822_7712423453858559499_n

Heavy, imposing, and rigorously compelling, [Press Start] the debut album from UK rockers Target: Renegades, may not be a ground-breaking offering but it is a release demanding attention and inspiring perpetual returns to its muscular arms. Everything about it snarls and confronts, but with rugged charm and passionate intensity which turns familiarity into a raw asset, the album is a potent and riveting declaration of the accomplished craft and rich potential within its creators.

Hailing from the North-West of England, Target: Renegades has been earning strong attention and acclaim with their ferocious hard rock bred sound, 2012 seeing them voted by music fans as the Unsigned Revolutions Award winners. Alongside the release of their debut release, the Corruption For Beginners EP and the band’s stature as an impressive live proposition, which has seen them play with the likes of The Vibrators and I Am Giant, it has been a powerful emergence which [Press Start] only reinforces and pushes to another level. Produced by Daniel Lovett-Horn of another of the UK’s best formidable underground talents, Promethium, [Press Start] hits hard and with ferocious relish from the start , showing the quartet of vocalist Adam Hulse, guitarist Daniel Fide, and bassist Jack Hamnett, alongside drummer Steven Erskine who has since left to be replaced by Matt, as a thoroughly masterful and thrilling incitement.

The album opens with Once Was Strength and an initial web of sonic enticement from the guitars. It is an imagination awakening start which intrigues without setting a fire, though the addition of a dark throated bassline and crisp percussion certainly enlivens the lure. A great roughly touching groove soon ignites infectiousness in the song, egged on by the great abrasing and potent tones of Hulse, whilst a heavy swagger is soon in charge as the encounter increases its impressive persuasion. Rhythms badger ears with the same composed relish as elsewhere throughout and though it lacks a final spark to explode into an outright storm, the track is an exciting and captivating opening to the album.

The following I’m Not Emotional is more of the same but with an openly distinct character. Contagious and clad in intimidating sinews, the track strides with imposing antagonism and creative tenacity to push the release up another step 1011910_473542209405259_773939138_nright away. Vocally Hulse again impresses whilst rhythms dangle addictive bait before ears, it all glazed with a sonic mist and causticity woven skilfully by Fide. The bass of Hamnett almost stalks everything around it, again its heavy grizzle of a tone magnetic within the sonic smog. The track is riveting and makes a raw tempest to which the following melodic beauty of emotive Wounded offers a superb contrast and companion. Showing more of the vocal depth of Hulse and creative potency of the band, the song plays, as its predecessor in many ways, like a mix of nineties band Skyscraper and Pearl Jam. It is a tantalising and bewitching mix of power balladry and raging passion, which with the last song sets the pinnacle of the album.

Oro provides a swift and muscular kick spawned from scarring riffs and menace drenched rhythms whilst vocally Hulse whips up an anthemic dirt ball of confrontation and antagonism. It is a great addictive track continuing the lofty plateau of the album, and a riot you can only imagine whipping up live audiences in an eager frenzy. Its hostile stomp makes way for the similarly intensive but more restrained Vulture, another song employing recognisable essences but turning them into a flavoursome spice within the band’s own honest and accomplished recipe. Once more a grungy infusion makes its potency known to add further flavour, though ultimately the enjoyable encounter does not manage to rival certainly the trio of excellent triumphs before it, nor the insatiable rampage of These Eyes Judge which follows. Storming ears with fiery riffs and rapier like beats the track roars and charges with merciless intent across its length, merging this rabidity with more restrained moments which lack the spirit and fire of the rest of the nevertheless gripping encounter but certainly does its potency no harm at all.

Its imaginative and stirring finale leaves an enthralling enticement which is immediately taken up by Say Goodnight and its opening dark roaming bass shadows and spicy sonic weave of guitar. The final track of the album stalks ears and thoughts with its persistent heavy footed and evocatively intensive presence, providing an atmospheric landscape unafraid to visit elegant and melodic embraces which in turn explore rawer and more impassioned blazes of adventure and sonic bluster. It is a glorious end to the alum, its most adventurous and sublimely provocative offering leaving the listener basking in the potential it alone offers for the band.

[Press Start] is a striking and exciting debut from a band you can only see growing stronger and more boldly inventive as they evolve and explore. Target: Renegades is the name to watch out for, one as it is easy to assume we will be hearing plenty more of ahead.

[Press Start] is available now digitally and on CD @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/press-start/id890500862 and http://www.targetrenegades.bigcartel.com/product/press-start-album-cd respectively

Rise Of The Northstar – Welcame

PRESSE9

Like being bitch slapped by Godzilla, Welcame the debut album from French thrashers Rise Of The Northstar shows little respect and the utmost hostility yet still charms the frilly panties off the passions. Swiftly instilling itself as one of our lustful favourite releases of 2014, the release is an unrelenting brawl on the senses. Mixing thrash, hardcore, and varied strains of metal aggression in a binding of manga and Japanese cultural inspiration, sound and album is an exhausting thrill which violently bruises and angrily seduces at every turn.

Consisting of vocalist Vithia, guitarists Eva-B and Air One, bassist Fabulous Fab, and drummer Hokuto No Kev, Rise Of The Northstar go straight for the jugular on their Repression Records release full-length and soon has defences willing to be split and devoured by the hellacious fury of ‘manga-core’. Opener What The Fuck tears the senses from their comfort zone, the maniacal glint in the eye of the whole album swiftly and ruthlessly seizing ears once the first song emerges from its deceptive melodic coaxing, guitars opening up with a radiant lure veined by sonic enterprise. When it comes, the colossal wall of sound expelled by the track is a tsunami of spite and intensity. Riffs savage air and senses whilst beats pummel everything in sight. It is a vicious assault and quite irresistible especially as a death metal like malevolence aligns itself with rap cultured vocals and a charging thrash voracity. Everything about the song is raw, vocals and lyrics to riffs and rhythms all looming over the senses like a mix of Slipknot, Bad Brains, and Toxic Holocaust. Its open hostility is also equipped with a sonic temptation which rather than temper the raging seems to ignite it further.

The staggering start is matched within seconds by the predatory Welcame (Furyo State Of Mind), the track from its first breath stalking its victim. A Stuck Mojo like animosity rages in the midst of the storm whilst Cypress Hill like WELCAMEartsonic slithers adds a tease to the incendiary and contagious confrontation. That original slow crawl in attack eventually explodes in primal urgency to incinerate the climate of the song before relaxing back into its insidious stroll. The track is as uncompromising as it is addictive and followed by an equally ferocious and merciless assault in The New Path. Again ears and emotions feel like they are being hunted down by the intensive weight and fury of the track but also just as forcibly find themselves being serenaded by group harmonies and anthemic tenacity. It is a scintillating and pleasingly unpredictable incitement setting a new strain of hunger in motion ready for the excellent Samurai Spirit.

The album’s fourth song casts caustic sonic swirls and a bass probing to tenderise thoughts at first before vocals spew malice and spite with every syllable forced through clenched teeth. Riffs and chords hang around the song with intimidating effect whilst beats slap with increasing tenacity and muscle the further the track challenges the senses. Again though there is a vocal union which demands allegiance, another anthem emerging to push the heights of the album further.

Both Dressed All In Black and Again And Again keep things furiously compelling, the first a belligerent riot of craft and invention which uses every twist of its imagination to unleash another exciting and adversarial predation. It equally sets a web of sonic enterprise to captivate as it spills blood before its successor takes a music box simplicity and naivety into an imposingly rugged and jaundiced landscape. Though neither quite matches the brilliance of those before them, each impresses as they add new character and invigorating variety to the album just like the next up Tyson. A cloud of haunting ambience and sinister atmosphere smothers ears first before riffs erupt in carnivorous voice and intent. Hardcore driven vocals then fly at ears angrily from within in the brewing tempest around them. An infectious stride breaks out next, dragging thoughts and passions with its easily accessible yet nasty resourcefulness. The track matches its title in weight, strength, and menace, again not setting a raging fire in emotions but stirring them up to lively satisfaction all the same.

The ridiculously addictive Bosozoku uncages another storming treat; grooves and riffs in league as they bind ears and passions in their riveting anthemic bait to which rhythms administer their welcome brutality as vocals roar with rebellious relish. It is a blistering slab of rock ‘n’ roll pushing Welcame back to its highest plateau, a level maintained by the following cover of the Pharoahe Monch track Simon Says. Possibly the most brutal and imposing rap track you will hear this year, the band turns it into a storm of antagonistic destruction. There is no peace at its eye either, just more full-blooded voracity and malevolent intent.

The album is brought to a potent end through the fusion of rapcore and thrash infused hardcore uncaged by Authentic and the adrenaline fuelled thrash savagery of Blast ‘Em All, both tracks enthralling debilitating anthems no one could be unwilling to offer their bodies to. They complete a roaring triumph of a release, our introduction to Rise Of The Northstar, despite them apparently having a couple of EPs already loose on the world, and the start of a lustful friendship we suspect.

Welcame is available now on Repression Records.

Machine Rox – Next Level

MR2

British industrial metallers Machine Rox has never been a slouch in stirring up ears and emotions with its fiery and rapacious energy and imagination, but the London quartet has found a new covetous creative tenacity to consume the senses with new album Next Level. As its title declares, the eleven track adventure sees the band rise to a new plateau in songwriting, sound, and sheer contagious enterprise. Not exactly a game changer but an encounter to set a fierce new blaze within the landscape of industrial and electro rock, Next Level is a gripping and feistily enjoyable rampage.

Originally formed by musician/songwriter Richard K as a solo project in 2007, Machine Rox has evolved into a full line-up consisting of guitarist Val Oproiu, drummer Nuj Farrow, and Aga on keys and vocals alongside vocalist/bassist/ programmer Richard K. Employing his experiences in bands like industrial metallers Meat Machine and Global Noise Attack, and in the sharing of stages with the likes of Rammstein, Napalm Death, and Covenant, Richard after some time away from music began exploring a merger of metal and electro rock in his band’s emerging sound. It is a journey which has intensified and grown with accompanying acclaim through releases such as the Activate Your Anger EP and debut album Shout, both in 2013. Last year also saw the release of the more metal infused Intox EP, a tasty hint of the exploits to be found on Next Level, though to be fair the band’s electro and industrial side is as vocal and potently evolved on the album.

The album flirts with ears straight away through the opening crystalline electro coaxing of Lost My Mind. The first track takes little time to flex its muscles and intensity though, sinew packed riffs and rhythmic teasing combining to challenge and ignite the senses as the vocals of Richard K similarly work on thoughts with his raw expression. The electronic lure of the track provides a contagious enterprise whilst the muscular strength of the song and the vocal bait adds anthemic essences, it all adding up to a riveting and impressive start.

The melodic Front Line Assembly meets Ghost In the Static feel of the song is replaced by the more caustic breath and ferocity of Love Explosion, KMFDM and Godflesh coming to mind though as with all songs the finished recipe is all a2738925395_2Machine Rox. The second track also unleashes an insatiable energy and charge to its pulsating persuasion, synths swirling feistily around the senses whilst guitars and beats cast a heavier and darker confrontation in the relentlessly infectious endeavour. With a glorious solo adding to the proposition, the song continues the outstanding start to the release and is immediately emulated by the heavy and catchy swing of Losers In Your Game. A Marilyn Manson-esque swagger fuels carnivorous riffs and eager rhythms whilst vocally Richard K prowls ears with a provocative narrative cast by his distinctive tones, the mix another slab of inescapable virulence.

Next Level is an album which holds a greater diversity than any Machine Rox release to date, the following warm mellow embrace of Electric Sun one example of the different sides to the character of the album. It is a melodic and seductive smouldering reminding of fellow Brits MiXE1, but also a song unafraid to spread a rawer climate across its sultry canvas; keys and guitars merging extremes for a heat wave of evocative and imaginative adventure.

Both Illusion and Cycle Complete keep body and emotions aflame, the first a bubbling yet bordering on corrosive devilry gaining swift enslavement of feet and imagination, whilst the second has a sinister edge to its imposing presence and electronic fascination. A throaty bass flavouring adds to the song’s drama, its weave of noir kissed shadows soaking the otherwise magnetically fiery track driven by vibrant electronics, heavy metallic riffery, and enticing vocals of Richard and Aga. Though neither song quite finds the plateau of their predecessors, both leave an already hungry appetite greedier before making way for the bewitching instrumental Last Kamikaze. Keys and guitars entwine with melodic beauty whilst the electronic atmosphere of the track provides a mesmeric soundscape for thoughts to drift into their own adventure through. There is also a sterner intimidation offered by slow but voracious riffery, again a blend which results in a stunning incitement for ears and emotions.

The aggressive yet welcoming presence of Breathe Again comes next, its striking metal seeded attack and rabid toxicity instantly contagious as a spice reminding of Gravity Kills and Die Krupps shows itself. Another scorching solo from Val Oproiu lights the exciting and scintillating tempest, its impressive offering contrasted and matched by My Own Religion as a resonating electro temptation swallows the senses to breed a similar weighty enticement as its predecessor. Only nailed to the floor feet could resist its enthralling call whilst the raw glaze to the vocals and the scything guitar invention gives the rest of the body a welcome work over. The two songs show another twist in the nature of the album but each slightly pales against the might of Mind Game. It is a thunderous provocation, rhythms and riffs the heaviest on the album and melodies the most acidic as it evolves into an irresistible almost savage stomp which leaves thoughts and lungs breathless.

The album closes with You Belong To Me, itself another slab of industrial metal loaded with creative voracity and uncompromising attitude within heavyweight infectiousness. It is a thrilling end to an enthralling and rigorously compelling album. Next Level is without doubt Machine Rox at their most potent and thrilling yet, the start of a new adventure which should push the band into a new and greedy industrial /electronic spotlight.

Next Level is available now @ http://machinerox.bandcamp.com/album/next-level

Be sure to catch Machine Rox at the DARK7 festival at The Electrowerkz, London on October 11th

(Hed)p.e. – Evolution

hepe2slightcolorrev

From the first striking and forceful raw incitements of tracks like Firsty, Tired of Sleep, and P.O.S., on their self-titled debut album, (Hed)p.e. has been a lustful follow for us at The RingMaster Review. Certainly their subsequent albums have ebbed and flowed in success but each hitting the personal sweet spot to some degree or other. So new release Evolution had a head start with thoughts but also faced a more demanding appetite after eight highly persuasive previous studio full-lengths. The questions and hopes placed before it were swiftly swept aside by a release which lives up to its title musically as well as in theme. It is a thrilling proposition which maybe does not show its new shift in ideation and sound as loudly in some tracks as in others but provides a tantalising brawl of intent and enterprise which should ignite even the emotions of those not quite as enamoured as ourselves.

Evolution is the quartet’s first release with Pavement Entertainment and sees the Huntington Beach hailing band grab inspiration from their heavier roots; sinews and heavyweight riffs challenging the senses as grippingly as the cast of flavours and imaginative ideation more expected from a (Hed)p.e. incitement. Just stepping into their third decade, the band has almost regrouped their ideas and thoughts with Evolution, starting a new chapter with the cream of the essences which took them to this point in time and entwining them with new adventures. As mentioned the album does not persistently roar with its new intent but there are equally times where new twists inspires the tingles first felt when discovering the eclectic enticement of the band way back in 1997 through their first album three years after founding.

The opening slap of tom toms announcing opener No Turning Back instantly grabs attention, their easy coaxing leading ears into a fiery wall of intensive riffs and forcibly crisp rhythms. It is a potent slap on the senses with the sonic HedPE_Evolution_Covergrowl expected of the band. Veins of melodic acidity add drama and intrigue to the proposal before the distinctive vocals of Jared Gomes surge into view with the lyrical confrontation and antagonism again firmly assumed of the band. With climactic shadows and imposing intensity, the track is a scintillating start, an infectious rage to set things off. The bass of Mark ‘Mawk’ Young is a throaty predator throughout whilst the melodic flames of guitarist Jackson ‘Jaxon’ Benge sparks the imagination to run with even more urgency into the accusations of Gomez.

The outstanding encounter is swiftly matched by Lost In Babylon, the track a blaze of metallic intent and hardcore passion. Again guitars craft a web of unpredictable and incendiary bait punctuated by the mighty rhythmic swings of drummer Jeremiah ‘Trauma’ Stratton whilst the bass stalks the senses with a belligerent yet addictive voice. Gomez flings notes and intent at thoughts with his accomplished and unique style whilst the chorus is pure (Hed)p.e. infectious persuasion, an anthemic bellow to ignite body and emotions.

A Rage Against The Machine like groove opens up Jump The Fence, its lure evolving into a progressive caress which in turn moves into scenery of jagged riffs and expressive grooves within a firm rhythmic caging. Stood over and incited by the great variation in the vocals of Gomez, the song strides with an agonistic swagger which again easily seduces for an inescapable anthem, a staple lure in a (Hed)p.e. provocation as shown by 2 Many Games in its slower flowing emotive expanse. Stirring imposing riffs strike through ears as a melodic weave of enterprise wraps the sturdy pace of the track, its emotive elegance and sonic narrative a colourful wash to the muscular core. It is not a rampaging offering but a thickly involved and imaginative suggestiveness with just as potent a temptation as the more rousing elements of other tracks.

The heavy rock canvas of No Tomorrow brings further diversity to the album, rigorously snarling vocals stalking predacious riffs and barbarous hooks for a tenaciously appetising provocation. Commandingly catchy with a vicious essence to its gripping breath, the track puts a militant spark into the passions before making way for the flavoursome venture of Let It Rain. From agitated and argumentative textures, the song seamlessly flows through immersive harmonies and scorching melodies, though everything is courted by a formidable intimidation and oppressive intensity. It is a riveting expanse of songwriting and evocative sound which is surpassed by the pugnacious One More Body, the band unleashing its most hostile weight and energy yet. It comes with another dose of infectious virulence too, another enslaving anthem for thoughts and emotions to get their teeth into.

From the more even tempered suasion of Never Alone, a strong and eventful song which just misses the spark of its predecessors yet enlists the full of the listener, the album moves through the unexpected meditative shadow of The Higher Crown to venture into its reggae seeded finale of tracks. The short ambience fuelled instrumental is an intro which sort of works though to be honest the haste to get to the excellent Nowhere To Go means it gets passed over more often than not. The next song is a delicious stroll of hazy melodies and mellow rhythms bound in a richer soaking of the reggae crafted charm the band has never been unafraid to explore. A tool for body and mind to work with, the song casts a spellbinding tempting which is emulated by the sultry tones and radiance of Let It Burn. Keys and guitars flirt with the senses whilst a dub spicery walks hand in hand with the vibrant vocal and staggered riffs, all combining for one of the most contagious and addictive songs likely to be heard this or any year.

The album closes with the smouldering presence of Hold On, the last of the reggae seeded encounters which is here courted by r&b soulfulness. Without lighting the fires of the previous two tracks it is still a fine end to a thrilling encounter, a triumph with only for personal tastes the fact that the closing trio of songs were seemingly segregated from the rest rather than scattered across the heart of the album slightly out of place . It is the only flimsy niggle to be found in Evolution though, a release which may or may not be the greatest (Hed)p.e. to date but is certainly the most eclectic and flavoursome proposition from the band yet.

Evolution is available now on Pavement Entertainment @ http://www.pavementmusic.com/product/hedp-e-evolution-cd/

Tribazik -Tools Of Mass Creation

535453_10151331998037613_172851658_n

Swiftly following the acclaimed success of their recent album Data Warfare, UK band Tribazik unleash their new gripping and contagion fuelled single, Tools Of Mass Creation. The closing track on their outstanding full-length, the song is an emotion and thought provoking tempest of sound and adventure, reinforcing the potential and creative emprise shining within the London based trio.

Formed by Jerry Kandiah (vocals/guitar) and Hedge Seel (drums/samples), Tribazik has grown into one of Britain’s most inventive and formidable prospects, Data Warfare their coming of age and the suspected spark to a world spotlight upon their ingenious mix of sounds. Sculpting an individual presence through the merger of genres such alternative rock, psychedelic metal, industrial, techno and much more, the band grabbed the attention of Killing Joke bassist Paul Raven from the release of the single Yang To Yin alone. The song led to the invitation and supporting of Killing Joke on two European tours as well as Jaz Coleman guesting on a track on Tribazik’s Andy Gill (Gang of Four) mixed debut album All Blood is Red in 2009. From there the pair became a trio with the recruitment of Syan and subsequently the creation and release of the self-produced and Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb, The Verve) mixed Date Warfare earlier this year. It is a fiercely flavoured tempest of imagination drenched sound and inventive force managing to cast a mix of early Killing Joke, Pendulum, Pitchshifter, The Prodigy, and Red Beat, whilst sculpting something new and invigoratingly distinct to Tribazik. Now Tools Of Mass Creation is ready to stir up another incitement for the album and itself, an aim as with its source release hard to imagine failing to achieve success.

The single harasses ears from its first breath, rhythms rapping with thick sinews on the senses whilst guitars blaze with a raw causticity to their riffs and hooks. The gothic harmonies of Syan glance across the turbulent air of the track soon after whilst beneath, the track roars with aggression and antagonistic intensity. It then relaxes into a more merciful embrace, the mellow tones of Syan snuggling closer to the ear as Kandiah unveils the narrative with his captivating voice. It is a smouldering passage prone to forceful eruptions of sonic energy and blazing passion musically and vocally. There is an unavoidable essence to Killing Joke to the track, as well as a tasty tinge of Fear Factory, but as it brawls and seduces body and emotions, the song sets down an individual character and beauty to the fury which belongs solely to its creators.

Tools Of Mass Creation is a riveting and mouth-watering furnace of sound and enterprise, the perfect doorway for those still not infected by the exciting presence of Tribazik, to dive into their glorious depths.

Tools Of Mass Creation is available on September 24th

Tribazik have confirmed a special single release party at London’s Islington Academy 2 on September 24th. To celebrate the single release of Tools Of Mass Creation, the band have promised ‘A storming show with full visual onslaught’

Tickets for the event can be purchased from http://www.o2academyislington.co.uk/event/69196/tribazik-tickets
