“Like a chainsaw through your skull.” – Metal Injection

As Selfmadegod Records prepares to release Circle Of Pain, the punishing third full-length release from Swedish outfit HENRY KANE, Metal Injection presents an exclusive premiere of the album’s “A Swarm Of Idiots.”

Formed in 2016 HENRY KANE is the solo output of Jonny Pettersson, also a member of Heads For The Dead, Wombbath, Massacre, Rotpit, and others, with a seemingly endless roster of prior bands appearing on his resume. Pettersson started the project to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of his first demo. Starting off in the world of punk and grindcore, those genres would be the pillar stones of the band’s overall sound, yet each release since has incorporated different extreme styles that have inspired him in one way or another.

HENRY KANE released its debut album Den Förstörda Människans Rike via Transcending Obscurity Records in 2017, followed by a split LP with Prolefeed on Wooaaargh the same year, and the second album Age Of The Idiot arrived on Transcending Obscurity in 2020.

Now, HENRY KANE arrives with the infectious third album, Circle Of Pain, the album’s seven heavyweight tracks once again taking the project’s sound in new directions. The record crosses the D-beat-inspired punk/crust influences into much more metallic territory, with dreary melodic elements and blackened atmospheres infiltrating a caustic bed of more modern-sounding metallic grindcore and crust-infused death metal that will no doubt appeal to fans of Martyrdöd, Wolfbrigade, Disfear, Anaal Nathrakh, Phobia, and Nasum.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Studio Unbound by Jonny Pettersson who performed all instruments, Circle Of Pain is completed with cover art by Fredrik Ringström.

“A Swarm Of Idiots” opens the album with ferocity. With the song’s release, Pettersson writes, “This song is a melting pot of all influences that makes up the foundation of HENRY KANE.”

Metal Injection writes with the song’s premiere, “It’s fast, it’s grindy, and it sounds like someone trying to escape your speakers with a chainsaw.”
