ESCUELA GRIND's 'Meat Magnet' Video Featuring Napalm Death
New England's extreme metal band ESCUELA GRIND has just dropped a music video for 'Meat Magnet', featuring Napalm Death's vocalist Barney Greenway. This track is part of their upcoming EP 'DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL', set to release on January 12, 2024, through MNRK Heavy. Fans can now pre-order the EP.
Barney Greenway described 'Meat Magnet' as a crunchy track that allowed him to fully engage his vocal prowess. He praised ESCUELA GRIND's overflowing enthusiasm, which made collaboration irresistible.
'DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL' continues the thematic journey started with the 2020 EPs 'PPOOWWEERRVVIIOOLLEENNCCEE' and 'GGRRIINNDDCCOORREE', reflecting ESCUELA GRIND's takes on underground music sub-genres. This new EP is the first release since their 2022 full-length LP 'Memory Theater'.
Vocalist Katerina Economou shared that 'DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL' concludes their EP trilogy, diving deep into the band's primary influences. These songs, she believes, best reflect their live performance energy. The EP, initially planned to include three songs, grew to feature 'Ball and Chain', a track that embodies death metal motifs with a unique feminine perspective and has become a highlight in their live shows.
Coinciding with the EP's release, ESCUELA GRIND is embarking on a U.S. headlining tour starting January 10. This five-week, 39-city winter tour promises an electrifying range of performances with support from bands like Take Offense, Come Meirda, Slow Pulse, Bonginator, Frog Mallet, and Brat.
ESCUELA GRIND calls out to their fans, inviting them to experience their intense and diverse live shows. They promise new material, including songs from their upcoming album, in a tour that promises to be wilder and more intense than ever. Their message is clear: expect high-energy grinding deathviolence that caters to all – the girls, the gays, the theys, and the lifers.
