Like a lumbering, ferocious beast awoken from a centuries-long slumber, the metallic behemoth often called Demiser emerged from the primordial ooze of the South Carolina metallic scene in 2017. After a number of years working towards a sonic apocalypse and intent on inflicting untold havoc, Demiser is releasing its sophomore album and Steel Blade debut, Slave to the Scythe,

The 9-song LP is a devastatingly intense slab of labor, an aural harbinger of hellish intent that sees the band mix ’80s thrash, first-wave black metallic, demise metallic and a wholesome dose of NWOBHM. Slave to the Scythe is the work of a band of males decided to destroy every thing of their path. Musically, in fact.

Their names are: Demiser the Demiser — occult liturgic blasphemy; Gravepisser — six-stringed satanic fukklord; Phallomancer — abysmal rhythm of demise; Defiler – dismal baritone curator; and Infestor — purveyor of percussive bile. They’re merely not right here to fuck round. Press reviews be aware that Demiser is the proper alternative for when “you’re within the temper for some soiled blackened thrash lengthy on enjoyable and brief on pretense.

Slave to the Scythe was recorded in the summertime of 2023 with Chase McGuckin at Seaboard Recording Studio in West Columbia, South Carolina. “We file separately with scratch tracks and clicks and all. We recorded with minimal AC so it was sizzling as fucking shit.” Demiser see Slave to the Scythe as the proper follow-up to By way of the Gate Everlasting.We really feel prefer it’s a continuation of our first album and upholds the identical ripping sound,” they are saying.

The band will probably be releasing three singles from the brand new opus, staring with the face-ripping “Infernal Bust” – a type of Rosemary’s Child for a gore-loving viewers that features the lyrics, “Rot your womb, unfold the seed that devil seeps; Flesh grows pale, fruit of man wilts.”

We wrote the music for this one in a single apply, it got here collectively fairly shortly,” they are saying. “Then Demiser the Demiser’s dumb ass determined to name it ‘Whores and Hearth’ and we advised him to close the fuck up and name it one thing cooler. We nonetheless failed. The lyrics are in regards to the downfall of man by a extremely evil cumshot.”

I actually wished a swingy tune to discover some triplet fills and had essentially the most enjoyable scripting this one for certain,” elaborates Infestor. “After we play it stay I improvise half the fills simply to maintain it enjoyable and recent.”

Hell is Filled with Hearth” is an epic story of a demonic warfare, that includes the strains, “Name within the hordes, put together for victory; The vermin Christ and his servants; Will quickly plead as their blood spills; By the need of my metal.” “This was one which began with a riff Phallomancer dropped at apply and all of us jumped in and bought it fleshed out,” they are saying. “Lyrically, we have been making up dumb tune titles we thought Demiser the Demiser would write and one way or the other he dropped this gem out of his ass. We ran with it. We nonetheless remorse it.”

The ultimate single will probably be “Carbureted Velocity,” an adrenaline junkie’s anthem with the strains, “Contemporary air, you may maintain it, give me that Florida snow; Blowin rails n gator tails, bumpin’ as I am going; The devils headlock has me in its grip; Snowblind and out of time my thoughts begins to slide.” “Gravepisser wrote most of this one musically and we bought it absolutely completed throughout apply.” they are saying. “The lyrics are about doing cocaine and driving choppers.”

For the uninitiated, Demiser fashioned in 2017 with the mission of “getting large enough to get a free bar tab,” they are saying, with no hint of irony. The 5 males need to drink and play brutally heavy music. They describe the Demiser sound as, “Quick-ripping black thrash with some soiled rock ‘n’ roll affect at instances. As we’ve continued writing, we’ve come extra into what Demiser’s sound is relatively than getting down to sound like a selected style.”

The band’s influences embrace the likes of Venom, Bathory, Slayer, Motorhead, and Destroyer 666, plus films like Terminator 2, Commando, and Predator (“just about something Schwarzenegger actually”).The overarching themes on Slave to the Scythe are basically “hell, hearth and hellfire.” There are not any ballads, no love songs – that is devilish music for devilish those that was largely written on the street.

We wrote it over the course of some years between touring with the legendary Bulldozer and different reveals right here and there,” they are saying. “Everyone within the band usually brings one thing to the writing room (aside from Demiser the Demiser) and all of us workshop it till we now have a tune. Then we do it a bunch extra instances.”

But Slave to the Scythe is greater than a group of particular person songs, it’s a full physique of sledgehammer-heavy ferocity. Every tune affords a unique shade to the Demiser palette. “I’m proud of the entire album general, however the bridge riff from ‘Phallomancer the Phallomancer’ was one thing I kicked in and Infestor wrote that solo over, it so it’s cool that the rhythm part bought to contribute to the guitars,” says Defiler.

This album is extra of a mix of my lyrics and contributions from different members,” says Demiser the Demiser. “The standout observe for me is ‘Complete Demise’ which is lyrically half and half written by me and Gravepisser, however general I’m proud of the sound.”

And the look: The quilt artwork, that includes a demonic wanting creature (maybe the Lord of the Flies himself?), suits that theme too.”We got here to Lucas Ruggieri with lyrics to some of the songs and let him run with it,” the band says in regards to the artist. “We’re actually proud of the way it turned out – he crushed it as all the time.”

Decibel has raved about Demiser: “All of the aggression and pace of black-thrash with heavy metallic melodies, Demiser take one of the best of each worlds.” Memorable, evil and inconceivable to disclaim, Slave to the Scythe represents the sound of a band on the rise, momentum firmly of their favor, waving the metallic flag with satisfaction and fury.
