UK riff slingers, STATE OF DECEIT, have dropped a blistering video for the track ‘Vengeance ‘ which is taken from their debut EP ‘Retribution ‘, out Friday 6th December.
STATE OF DECEIT were created from the bands’ burning mutual affection for playing powerful heavy music on their own terms. Pulling influence from Pantera, Slayer and Stampin’ Ground, to Pitchshifter and Architects, the band merge distorted guitars and pounding drums, with clean and full-throttle attack vocals, all to devastating effect.
Born at the end of 2018, the metallers had difficulty, early on in their career, finding the ideal members to fit their style and manifesto. After a lot of persistence and dedication, the band finally sought out the right fitting characters for their creative endeavours. With Pete Scammell on vocals, Jon Russell handling the guitars, Matt Toner hammering on the drums, and Matt Wilson locking it all down on bass, the quartet are now set for national recognition.
Armed with their EP ‘Retribution ‘which was recorded at Long Wave Studios with esteemed producer Romesh Dodangoda at the helm, the release spits out a fury of thrash, groove and metalcore, wrapped around anthemic hooks and peppered with lyrical themes such as politics and mental health. Guitarist Jon Russell remarks about the EP:
“Retribution encapsulates the sound and feel I’ve been striving for, the soaring and venomous vocals, the headbanging grooves from the rhythm section, all captured crisply by Long Wave Studios. This is the way I think metal should be, forget all the trends, this record is our legacy, that which can never be taken away from us.”
With further live shows in the works for the remainder of the year and throughout 2020, get set for STATE OF DECEIT’s arrival.
