From the rocky shores of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada comes a blood ceremony, an unholy sacrament of the wicked riff. The Order of the Precious Blood congregates to bask in the red glow and immense power of heavy fucking metal.
Precious Blood, Eastern Canada’s ferocious experimental hardcore punk five-piece, drop their highly anticipated debut EP I No Longer Wish For Salvation on June 16th, and Decibel is proud to debut their latest vicious single, “X You Out”.
“”X You Out” at its core is a song about walking yourself back from the brink of insanity while trying to cut down all those who stand in your way,” the band share in a statement. “It features some Lamb of God-inspired riffs and an eerie atmosphere, but still leaves space to showcase our more melodic side.”
Comprised of frontman Paul Brake (RocketRocketShip, Wastecase), guitarists Cameron Legge (Slowpoke, Anoxia) and Barry O’Keefe (Release the Hounds), bassist Ben Chapman-Smith (Slowpoke, Headloss) and drummer Adam Hearn (Release the Hounds, Faster Than Felix), Precious Blood’s frenetic style can best be described as a horror movie come to life: relentless, punishing and claustrophobic, wielding a jagged dissonance while incorporating an unexpected brew of experimental and pop songwriting techniques.
The group recorded their debut EP with noted Canadian producer/engineer Krisjan Leslie (Die Mannequin, Billy Talent, Three Days Grace) ahead of a planned 10 date Tour of Atlantic Canadian tour this August, anchored by a performance at Sydney, Nova Scotia’s Merciless Metal Fest.
Precious Blood’s I No Longer Wish For Salvation is available worldwide June 16th!
