Mutank Releasing New EP “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.”

Montreal thrash champions Mutank return with a new EP titled “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” due out June 16th via Boonsdale Records. This five track demolisher was produced with Topon Das (Fuck The Facts).

The new EP from the 2014 Wacken Metal Battle Canada winners is a short, but sweet to follow up to debut cassette “M.E.C.H. Metal” and is a taste of what’s to come from the band’s full-length album planned to be unleashed later this year.

Vocalist/bassist Stephen Reynolds comments: “Someone is gonna hurt their neck listening to this…This upcoming EP ‘W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T’ sort of started as a joke. I just thought it would be funny to force an acronym for ‘what’s that?’ and I came up with ‘We Have Alottta Thrash Songs That Have Abbreviate Titles’. From there we came up with the concept of an EP with a bunch of forced acronym titles. The EP itself was written somewhat conceptually with the individual songs being very short thrash songs that come together to make one longer progressive thrash track, which harkens back to the title since we don’t even know what it is! We have a ton of new material in the works as well, people can expect new stuff sooner rather than later!”

Megaton Leviathan Working On Music, Recruits New Lineup

In the three years since Megaton Leviathan released 2014’s “Past 21” album, Andrew James Costa Reuscher and Mort Subite have been diligently creating new material to meet and exceed Megaton’s reputation of fusing disparate elements into new, borderline narcotic compositions.

To help facilitate this goal, several new members have been drafted in both studio and live capacities, including ex-Lord Dying drummer Jonathan Reid, vocalist and concert violinist Andrea Morgan, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Travis Hathaway, and bassist Trejen.

This new, diversely talented cast has already inspired unexpected creative reward in the studio, and will no doubt entrance live audiences worldwide as Megaton Leviathan takes to the road once again supporting a presently incubating goliath later this year.

“Sound-wise, the EP is a nod towards the band’s debut album, ‘A Bright Celestial Light’ (2013), and a wink towards the hardcore and electronic side, with guest appearances from Dennis Lyxzén and Fred Burman (Satan Takes A Holiday).
