Let get this out of the way: Prophecy of Doom fucking ruled. If you’re not hip to the Gloucestershire grinders who released a pair of largely unsung classics — Acknowledge the Confusion Master and Matrix — in early ’90s, please familiarize yourself via this performance/interview segment from the legendary Hard ‘N’ Heavy Grindcore Special immediately. OK, get it now? Good, because the core duo of vocalist Shrew and bassist Shrub are back at it with the crust punk/death metal awesomeness of Pray U Prey.
The follow up to the band’s 2017 debut, Figure the 8, is set for release via the ever-reliable Selfmadegod label on August 6. But you don’t have to wait that long to hear a brand new brain-basher from sophomore slugger The Omega Kill, because Decibel has the premiere of the visualizer for “Living Library,” along with some insightful context about the track from the legendary Shrew.
