KING PARROT reveal music video for new track “Piss Wreck”
Australian thrash / grind metallers KING PARROT reveal new music video directed by Dan Farmer of Farmwalker Films. The song “Piss Wreck” appears on the band’s new album, “Ugly Produce”, set to be released this Friday (September 22nd) via Agonia Records in Europe (Housecore Records in North America andRocket/EVP in Australia). Watch the video below:
This latest installment from KING PARROT exceeds the wildest expectations for an acerbic and unapologetic slab of thrash metal. Fierce lyrics, spiked with grindcore intensity, and dusted with shades of hardcore-infested punk attitude, the album sets the bar higher than its predecessor, “Dead Set”, from 2015.
“Ugly Produce” offers ten tracks of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems, veined deeply in the extreme underground sound. After recording the previous album in the US, 2017 saw the band head back home to where it all began – recording their third full-length album with Blood Duster‘s Jason PC, at the enigmatic Goatsound Studios. The mastering was done by Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege Studio(Sleep, High On Fire, Nails) in the US, while the cover artwork was created by Boyd Synnott and Simon Robins for GraphOrlock.
Commented by KING PARROT: “Ugly Produce reaches new heights in abrasive song-writing and serves up an odious pile of repulsive flavors you wouldn’t want to find on your local fruit and vegetable shelves. A repugnant harvest of gnarled and nasty grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock and it’s more caustic than ever”.
DIABLO BLVD – new live video ‘Summer Has Gone’ at late-night TV show
Belgian dark rock outfit DIABLO BLVD has just played their new single ‘Summer Has Gone’ live on Belgian national TV at the popular late-night talk show “Van Gils & Gasten”. The song is taken from the highly anticipated new album »Zero Hour«, which is scheduled for September 22th, 2017 release worldwide, via Nuclear Blast. Earlier this year, the band released 3 music videos for ‘Animal’, ‘Sing From The Gallows’, and the aforementioned track, which can be watched below.
Vocalist Alex Agnew comments: “We’ve never been your typical metal band and on this album we also reflect this in the artwork. Art is resistance and individuality is key. You can’t have something real to say if you sound like everybody else. We definitely have our musical influences and we never try to hide them, but it’s the combining of these influences that makes us unique. Like I said before: the things we look for are dark, heavy riffs and atmospherics combined with strong vocal melodies. There is great beauty to be found in the darkest things. Music only means something if it tells a story or conveys a feeling. Anything else is basically masturbation, and that should be done in private!”
