We have teamed with Montreal, QC’s thrashy metal/hardcore hybrid VANTABLACK WARSHIP (members of Arseniq33, Ghoulunatics, Brutal Chérie, Foreshadow, Les Ékorchés, Buffalo Theory Mtl.) to five you their second video single “Another Dead Rockstar”, coming from their upcoming album “Abrasive Pulmonic Speak“, due out on Jan 26th! With their new single, VANTABLACK WARSHIP might have pulled their brand of wreckage sonic mixture even further towards sludgy, almost industrialized moshpit machine, yet it still manages to further their craft. Listen below and
“Another Dead Rockstar is a term coined by the band to describe a certain breed of musician who continues to chase the dream of stardom but ends up sowing a path of disrepute and shame.”
VANTABLACK WARSHIP‘s new album “Abrasive Pulmonic Speak” is due out on Jan 26th, 2018 to follow their well celebrated 2015 self-titled EP. The new album features eight tracks of just solid riffage from heavy hardcore speed demon ripping to sludgy down tunes all applied with dirty in your face vocals ready to destroy with its moshpit anthems. From tracks like “Blood On The Mat”, a graphic account of women in the UFC to “The Blackhole” about Raider Nation football fans and “Another Dead Rockstar”, not to be taken too literally, about washed up musicians still chasing the dream, but in the end sowing a path of disrepute and shame. These tracks all have a story to tell.
And Guitarist Pat Gordon comments about the album:
“Abrasive Pulmonic Speak”, the title of our album is a testimony to the harshness of our lyrics and music. They are pretty hardcore! But it also refers to the title track, which is based on the works of Henry Miller. He was expatriated for some of his earlier works that he put into print that at those times people never dared say out loud. We are trying to channel that but from another an angle which is the stereotype that comes with metal music, which, quite frankly is tired. We have metalheads that are well into their 60s and 70s today. It’s annoying that people see us as a subculture when in fact we are a very legitimate culture.”
