Melbourne death-metallers Larry Leadfoot just announced their first official live EP ‘Sins & All: Live In Hellbourne’ due for release on March 25th, recapturing their debut EP ‘Hellxotica’ in a live setting. Accompanying this exciting news, the group also released a never before heard track ‘Convulsion’.
This scathing new single encompasses the very crux of heavy music in it’s most authentic form and solidifies the groups love of heavy metal with flesh-melting chugs infused with doom inspired riffage and blistering solos. Featuring Andrew Denning on vocals, delivering throaty growls and rapid fire gutturals in full gusto amongst the flurry of double kicks and sizzling fretwork.
Guitarist Daniel Phillip East speaks on the new release: “Convulsion is the first song Nick Parkinson and myself wrote together, with vocals and bass written by the now departed Andrew Denning and Andrew Lawrence respectively. This recording captures our second time playing it live. The song is best summed up as a cohesively schizophrenic mix of blackened death metal with Middle Eastern and Indian flavours, groove and a touch of Latin for good measure. Without trying to sound pretentious, a great deal of the song resulted from spontaneous jamming in which either I would be vibing on a riff with Nick almost instantaneously kicking off a beat that was perfectly complementary, or vice versa. It’s big, it’s heavy and we hope people get off on it as much as we do playing it”
‘Sins & All: Live In Hellbourne’ seamlessly blends a wide range of influences, experiences and views into a blast furnace and the result is a distorted, down-tuned soundscape at a flow synonymous with the 90’s wave of Norwegian Black Metal.
Following a successful string of shows along the East Coast including a performance at the Melbourne Wacken Metal Battle, Larry Leadfoot has forged a respected name for themselves as one of Melbourne’s finest extreme metal acts. 2022 will see Larry Leadfoot take on a new life as a three piece with the exciting new addition of Vocalist & Bassist Nick “Vigg” Apthorpe.
