Roaring out of Chandler, Arizona, Murkocet is a band which has the potential of creating a forceful stir within the metal scene if tracks unveiled last year and now new single Strip Club Massacre are any indication. The song is an irritable and rousingly brutal proposal sculpted with the juiciest grooves and grouchiest riffs with antagonistically matching rhythms. It is an attention grabber which alone offers plenty to understand why great things are envisaged for the band by many.
The origins of the single belies its imposing stature and impressive voracity, with vocalist Richie Jano revealing that “…the song was originally written as a joke, but then it ended up becoming a really powerful song with some strong hooks. Anyone who has ever been to a strip club and felt like they ‘almost had her’ is going to be able to relate to this song, that coupled with its intensity makes for a really fun experience.” Powerful it certainly is and having been already unveiled on the likes of Spotify, it has grabbed the interest of a great many including the makers of an upcoming horror film of the same name who have grabbed the track as its theme song. The director of Strip Club Massacre, Bruce Kilroy further commented about the single, saying “We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect match for our movie than Murkocet’s Strip Club Massacre. Not only do we share the same name, but the way the in-your-face vocals and guitars unleash hell is the exact way we’re building the climax for our film. As the track reaches its filthiest best, you can almost feel the blood rain down on you, and that’s exactly what we wanted.”
That dirty uncompromising and irresistible experience is unleashed from the track’s first breath. Guitarist Nate Garrett immediately uncages a vicious swirl of riffs and grooves, the maelstrom then punctured by Mike Mays’ invasive swings and the equally predacious enticement uncaged by Brandon Raeburn’s bass strings. As Jano’s vocals bring their irritable ire and snarling expression to the mix, grooves breakout a sultry seducing in their lure, but Garrett never settles on one form of assault and persuasion, his craft and imagination an evolving protagonist easy to become seriously greedy over.
Whether stalking the senses or brawling with them, the track is riveting and explosive stuff, like a mix of Lamb of God and Bloodsimple and reason alone to keep Murkocet eagerly on the radar.
