Rare outing for the reptile magicians & their accompanying royalty and this time around they’re biting off a hefty chunk of thrash for our listening pleasure.

Released just six months after the uplifting blues-rock boogie and deep electro explorations of Fishing For Fishes and drawing on the mid/late 1980s golden period of thrash metal - Metallica and Slayer, certainly, but also lesser-cited bands such as Exodus, Kreator and Overkill - Infest The Rats’ Nest sees a wholly unexpected creative detour into new sonic terrain. This is an album dripping with disdain and disgust for a planet consuming itself in a mass act of cannibalism which meets the fears and anxieties of a planet head on; here is a place where uncompromising music meets the concerns of contemporary cli-fi, that emerging movement of writing centred around ecological disaster and its repercussions. “Infest the Rats’ Nest is a surprise contender for metal album of the year. How did that happen? Who cares, just turn it up!” – Echoes and Dust
