London, UK’s PUPIL SLICER have today released their debut album, Mirrors, via Prosthetic Records. Mirrors sees the three-piece deftly pull from both metal and hardcore’s most abrasive extremities to thrilling effect, and is guaranteed to see the band leave their mark on 2021. To celebrate the release, PUPIL SLICER have also shared a visualizer for Husk, taken from the album.
Speaking on Mirrors’ release, the band comments: “We’ve been really overwhelmed with the response from everyone who has heard Mirrors so far. The reception has been above and beyond what we had hoped for our debut album. We can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks now it’s out in the wild, and to get out and tour these songs when we can.”
Praise for Mirrors:
“There’s a raft of exciting and innovative bands coming from the UK right now. PUPIL SLICER are on par with all of them.” – Metal Hammer UK
“Davies is such a consistently commanding presence that Mirrors is vastly more immersive and absorbing than any record this fast, furious and fucked up has any right to be.” – Blabbermouth
“Overall, Mirrors is nothing short of incredible. It’s up there with the likes of Vein, End and Fawn Limbs as one of the best and most visceral debuts of recent years.” – Distorted Sound
“PUPIL SLICER’s debut album is a panic-stricken purging of mental anguish, carried out by a blast of cacophonous instrumentation. So in other words, this album rules.” – New Noise
Having spent two years honing their craft and refining their sound, PUPIL SLICER set out to record new material in 2019 with Pedram Valiani of Frontierer/Sectioned overseeing production, and mastering taken care of by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. In late 2020 the band released the single, L’Appel Du Vide featuring Carson Pace of the Callous Daoboys, paving the way for this full-length to follow. Mirrors captures the frenetic energy that propels PUPIL SLICER forward, making their snarling blend of mathcore, grindcore, death metal and more a truly essential listen.
