If you’re a fan of Gohira, Converge and Morbid Angel, check out Planet Eater. Planet Eater recently had dropped their single “The Boats” in preparation for their new album Blackness From The Stars, being dropped August 4, 2017.
With only an EP and the current up-coming full-length, the band hailing from Saskatchewan already has recognition in parts of the US, UK and Russia. Mixing various styles of thrash and harsher devastating vocals the album is a fresh taste from the prairies of Canada.
“The Boats” is only a small taste of the brutality of the album and non-stop aggressiveness. The band quotes “This track tells a tale of the brutal Persian torture tactic known as The Boats. The Boats exemplifies the evolution of the Planet Eater sound and gives the listener a taste of what’s to come in our first full length release, Blackness From The Stars.”.
Without spoiling the album another solid track I found was “Kill on Sight”, with one of the faster drum tracks, with the layered vocals brings the uniqueness of the album out and a much more technical and polished style from their debut EP. Personally, if the album is anything like this track, and you want a non-stop heaviness you will be pleased.
You can catch Planet Eater this summer once again at Loud as Hell Fest (August 5), along side bands such as Battlecross, Agression, Black Wizard and Eye of Horous, as well as their hometown show on July 28th. Or else the official release on August 4th.
I’m Phil and 27 years old. I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. I’ve worked as a backstage hand, stage crew, street-teamer with Union Events and various labels, been in and out of bands and started my own magazine; Attainable Magazine. In which I focus on band interviews and had the opportunity to sit down with names such as William Control, Real Mackenzies and I Prevail. As well photograph others such as August Burns Red, Silverstein, and Protest the Hero. Though I tend to gravitate towards the heavier styles; punk, metal, hardcore, and so forth. I do end up at any other show I can get too. I originally had gone to university to pursue broadcasting with a minor in photo-journalism but after a year left to continue to purse music on my own terms. If I’m not at a show, I’m either at a record store adding to my ever growing collection. In my free time I also model and practice body-suspension.
