NECK OF THE WOODS new video
Vancouver, British Columbia-based progressive death metal collective NECK OF THE WOODS release new video from their full length "Annex of Ire", out March 20th via their new label home of Pelagic Records.
Band states the following "The feeling of ambivalence is something we deal with every day of our lives. Be it a small lingering of uncertainty or a relentless mental battle that derails your life we all experience it. This song focuses on my own indecision to exact revenge on someone who wronged me, repeating a mantra I don’t honestly believe in but felt strongly in the moment. Fuck the high road was cathartic thing to write though its not a path I feel many should follow."
The Annex Of Ire Track Listing:
1. The Annex Of Ire
3. Skin Your Teeth
4. Vision Loser
5. Crosshairs Will Shift
6. Strange Consolation
7. The Tower
The group’s complex and dynamic sound along with their resonating live performances helped the band quickly rise to prominence. Following the release of their self-titled EP in 2015, they took to the road making appearances at multiple Canadian festivals including both Calgary and Armstrong Metalfest. Summer 2016 saw them accompany metalcore legends Misery Signals on the Canadian leg of their 2016 tour as well as embarking on a headlining tour of Western Canada. It wasn’t long before they caught the eye of UK label Basick Records who welcomed them to their roster in Spring 2017. Their debut album, The Passenger, released in September of 2017, sparked candid debate amongst metal critics across the globe; its diverse sound defies categorization while delivering a blend of aggressive attitude, emotive expression, progressive intellect, and modern flair.
"NECK OF THE WOODS have honed a technical, multi-genre approach to metal that sounds like the product of Devin Townsend working with Converge. Ripping, serpentine riffs and brash breakdowns make it impossible for NECK OF THE WOODS to lose your attention." – Sled Island Music & Arts Fest
