Vesicarum Announce ‘Reign Of Terror’ EP; Release Brutal New Single ‘The Sick And The Depraved’
Kent, UK-based death-metallers Vesicarum reveal music video for their brand new track ‘The Sick And The Depraved’, plus announce their debut EP, ‘Reign Of Terror’.
“The EP tells a story of a serial killer from his beginnings through to stages of murder and torture,” states vocalist and mastermind Glynn Neve.
“The first four songs on the EP are about the killer and his development – however the last track [Undivine End] switches to the victim’s point of view – it was written to give the listener the impression of a victim tied up in the killers torture chamber awaiting his demise.”
The video for ‘The Sick And The Depraved’ was shot within the grounds of Bilsington Priory Estate, inside a 13th century chapel – this archaic setting serves as the perfect backdrop to the track, wherein an ancient malevolence is channelled via crushing riffs and pounding drumming.
‘Reign Of Terror’ is set for release on May 22nd via One Eyed Toad Records – check out the music video for ‘The Sick And The Depraved’ below.
All music was recorded primarily at the guitarist Martin Shipton’s home studio and mixed and mastered by Neve – this tight level of control enabled the band to bring their grisly concept to life, exactly as envisioned.
Vesicarum are a visceral five-piece death metal band from Kent, UK, bursting at the seams with brutal energy – featuring frantic, technical riffing; topped off with frontman Glynn Neve’s signature vocal style.
The band was originally created in 2016 as a solo project by Glynn, growing in early 2018 to include guitarists Martin Shipton and James Thompson, bassist Orla Blue Reed and drummer Donal McGee. The name, ‘Vesicarum’ – meaning ‘to fester’, in Latin is an ode to the sinister nature of the band’s music and lyrical content. Featuring darker subjects including serial killers and The Ankou (The Graveyard Watcher), the central lyrical theme is hatred – the band describe their music as “an adrenaline rush that is a great escape from the stresses and strains of life.”
