Mangled Carpenter is a faith-based Deathgrind band that was formed by Seth Metoyer and Kristeffor Olson during their High School years. Seth and Kristeffor decided to write the album “Under the Shadow” through much of the 2020 pandemic. Seth recorded the guitars and vocals and engineered the album from his studio in Monterey, Kristeffor provided bass tracks from Connecticut and the mysterious drummer, MACHINE, tracked drums from his lair.
Seth Metoyer comments:
“Under the Shadow is our debut full-length album … and all songs are biblically based with accompanying scripture references. The video for the song ‘The Hanging of Judas’ is about Judas, his betrayal, and eventual demise. I can’t wait for heavy music fans to experience the vast brutality of this album.”
