After a “brief” hiatus, Bristol (UK) based experimental thrashers Detritus are back. Building on the success of their first two albums “Perpetual Defiance” (1990) and “If But For One” (1993), “Myths” hits you hard in the soul, wondering from which direction the next punch is coming. Delicate and brutal, driving rhythms, melody and a complex wall of sound will leave you wondering how you lived without them for so long….for fans of Celtic Frost, Triptykon, later era Seventh Angel, Believer, Possessed and Sodom.
“Myths” will be released February 19th on Embryo Industries Ltd (vinyl and digital) and on CD by Retroactive Records.
We have created a pantheon of dark gods, a legion of devils more terrifying than anything from our folktales and histories. We have fallen beneath the whips of new overlords; priests of intolerance, violence, hypocrisy and unreasoning judgement. We lay placating tribute at the altars of greed and hate as we walk our endless, unchanging rounds in darkness. Now is the time for simple heroes with the courage to look up and see the light, the bravery to lay down their weapons and open their arms, the strength to step from the path and disbelieve the myths that bind us to destruction.
