Here is a taste of something new from someone new. Well, DeadShred might be familiar to some circles as its members are already notorious. DeadShred is Andrew ‘Falco’ Ford (Slug Guts, Frou Frou Foxes), Harry Byrne (Per Purpose), Matthew Ford (Thigh Master) and Helena Papageorgiou (Feathers). They’ve played a few shows but have only recently started to pick up steam.
‘Ratsakk’ is a new chunk of coal released through Tenth Court as a taster for the forthcoming DeadShred tape, Thousand Yard Staring Competition. As ramshackle as it seems at the beginning, Ratsakk is a fairly tight arrangement with some crazy fun elements. The deranged ranting and howling in the vocals mesh well with the pummelling clang and pulse in the back.
It’s a minute and a half of meaty, thrashy, trashy, audible forced entry. I’m predicting more of the same to be on their tape and I gotta say I’m kinda looking forward to it.
