Byron Bay’s brutal hardcore outfit SHACKLES’ album ‘Hatred’s Reservoir‘ is out now through through iconic label Resist Records (Parkway Drive, Polaris) at https://orcd.co/hatredsreservoir!
The band have been enjoying a tonne of airplay from Lochlan Watt and Josh Merriel on triple j’s The Racket and Short Fast Loud respectively, and media have been loving the album. Here’s what people are saying. Single Not As they Appear dropped last Friday on all DSPs – with a track being added to Spotify’s Death Metal and Beyond extreme metal playlist this week!
“If Shackles Hatred’s Reservoir was released in [The eighties]; not only would it have been a surefire inclusion to the infamous PRMC ‘filthy fifteen’; it would also of likely caused conservative parents to have a rage fuelled response similar to this bloke from Scanners.” – Hysteria Mag
“Try not to kill too many lamps wind milling or tear up the carpet too much while picking up change to this one. It won’t endear your roommates to either yourself or the band.” – New Noise Magazine
“‘Hatred’s Reservoir’ is an absolute behemoth of an offering from SHACKLΣS and if you like Nails, Infest, Mindsnare, Extortion, Weekend Nachos or anyone in between you would be remiss not to give this a solid flogging when it is out this week.” – GC LIVE
“…everything you would want out of death metal like this… blast beats, brutal brutal screaming, in your face guitar, loud noises, I like it… 8.6/10” – Local Band Smokeout
Captured by Liam Kriz and mixed by Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recording (Harms Way, Dead in the Dirt, Weekend Nachos), the band burrow further into their collective stockpile of animosity and conniption to produce what could arguably be considered the strongest of their recorded output so far.
