Hailing from Oxford, A Trust Unclean are a band that have well and truly made their mark on the UK Death Metal scene becoming quickly renowned for their own brand of groovy, technical death metal with piercing and devastating vocals.
This is a band that brings fun back into live music; something which is clear to see on their faces as they deliver explosive riffs and crushing breakdowns. Combined with the great quality banter in between songs, A Trust Unclean command your attention from the off.
The quintet released their critically acclaimed EP ‘Reality Relinquished’ in August 2015 which was received tremendously amongst press and fans alike. Following a successful UK tour with Osiah the band went on to share stages with the likes of Aversions Crown, Rings Of Saturn, Black Tongue, and Ne Obliviscaris as well as performing at UK Tech Metal Fest with bands such as Decapitated, Heart Of A Coward, Monuments and many more.
After unfortunately parting ways with their vocalist Joe and drummer Scott in late 2016 during the writing process of their new release ‘Parturition’ (which literally translates to the act of giving birth), the band were thrown into the deep end to find new band members quickly and were lucky enough to recruit Kyle Lamb on vocals and extremely talented young drummer Noah Plant. With the line-up now stronger than ever, A Trust Unclean have undergone a fresh start, a re-birth and are ready and determined to take their new music as far and wide as possible.
Guitarist Mikey G comments:
"We feel strongly that our new material is a step up for us, both in terms of songwriting and musicianship. We've learned so much from this process in terms of what we're capable of with the amount of set backs we've had to deal with. It's definitely been an empowering experience for us to really push our boundaries and come out with something that we truly like. We've been much more confident in sampling different musical styles and instrumentation and we feel we've ended up with a record with way more depth and character then anything we've done before. This has also been the first A Trust Unclean record that Noah and Kyle have been involved in creatively and it's been great to work with what they both have to offer, especially considering the short amount of time they've actually been members of this band. We still have a lot of growing to do yet and we feel strongly that together with this new lineup, this will only be a taste of what's to come."
'Parturition' will be released via Basick on June 2nd 2017.
