UNFD are excited to announce the signing of Perth metalcore band CURSED EARTH worldwide. One of the fastest rising bands in Australian heavy music, Cursed Earth have been pummelling ears all over Australia since 2013 and their introduction to the rest of the world comes via the “Cycles of Grief Volume 1: Growth” EP, set for release on August 4. Pre-order available now at 24Hundred and iTunes. Watch the video for double single “War March/Broken” below!
“Cycles of Grief Volume 1: Growth” is an unflinching and graphic depiction of trauma that breaches the boundaries of generation, country, class or circumstance. The EP covers themes of isolation and brutality from the point of view of characters caught up in and torn apart by their environment and the actions of those responsible for shaping their lives.
“From violence comes more violence, from tragedy comes rage. Then, inevitably, the cycle continues”.
“The story of Cycles of Grief documents the collision of nature and nurture” says guitarist Kieran Molloy “It’s an unprejudiced look into the intergenerational nature of coldness, addiction and violence“.
Cursed Earth comprising vocalist Jazmine Luders, guitarists Kieran Molloy and Paul Cottrell, bassist Robert Owens and drummer Sam Forward, formed in Perth in 2013. Through EP Vae Mortis and a split with Burning Season (collected on Enslaved By The Insignificant, released worldwide by Death’s Grip / Holy Roar) they established themselves as unflinching documenters of the darkest corners of human nature.
nothing to say
a constant state of growth and decay
living in red
shrouded in grey
on a war march to the grave
swarm came down,
destroyed all that they see
cold bistered earth,
broken at birth
the pressure of a million young men’s rage
cold blistered earth
broken at birth
how can i live
knowing what happened
the body survived but the inside was blackened
the scars on my face will never be erased
