1 min read

The South African metallic hardcore outfit PEASANT is back on the scene with a devastating new single and accompanying video titled “Cape Death.” This marks the first in a series of five singles set to roll out in the upcoming months.

Hailing from Cape Town, the five-member band demonstrates once more their knack for creating a seismic blend of 90s metal with modern heavy hardcore elements. Get ready for a whirlwind of mosh-worthy moments and blistering sonic blasts.


The thematic underpinnings of “Cape Death” delve into the complexities of existence, mortality, and the stark realities of life in Cape Town—a city often romanticized for its beauty but less often revealed for its harsh conditions and inequality.

This is a perspective seldom experienced by the average tourist but deeply ingrained in the daily lives of its residents.


The music video showcases a myriad of locations across Cape Town, giving viewers a comprehensive look at the city’s lesser-known aspects. It culminates in a riveting live performance at The Armchair Theatre in the Observatory area of Cape Town.


Cape Death” marks an unflinching portrayal of life in a city of contrasts. It challenges both the listener and viewer to confront uncomfortable truths, all while delivering an auditory experience designed to make you move.
