Canada’s HOOKER SPIT Unleash Death Metal Fury With Debut “Krötch Splitter”


Emanating from Red Deer, Canada, Hooker Spit is an up-and-coming death metal band with a penchant for writing infectious riffs. Comprising of Vlad Gligor (lead guitar), Devin Link (rhythm guitar), José Garza (bass), Daniel White (vocals), and Scott Gooding (drums). The quintet is inspired by internationally acclaimed bands like At The Gates, Bloodbath, Carcass, and The Black Dahlia Murder. Filled with heavy chunky riffs, guttural vocals, and destructive drum grooves, Hooker Spit has developed a sonic quality and episodic visual concept that is unique to them. The first recorded look at the band comes with their seven-track debut album “Krötch Splitter” and the first single “Call of the Void”, which they comment on:


“This is the first song we wrote. It contains all of the elements you would expect in a Hooker Spit song. Lyrically the song deals with the subject of self-harm and the pendulum-like experience of someone who is trying to process those thoughts. The lyrics are intrusive thoughts personified. We did our best to represent the pain and suffering of someone dealing with these thoughts to address what we feel is something that many people deal with. This song does not glorify but rather tries to strike at the root inspiration for these thoughts like a sense of isolation and lack of purpose.”


The album “Krötch Splitter” combines dark, heavy, high-energy music intertwining with lyrical themes that convey the abject cosmic horror of what it means to be human. The lyrics have many themes. These range from dystopian realities and the depths of cannibalistic depravity to living your best life and aiming for self-actualization. Inspiration comes from many places such as pop culture, esotericism, and life in general.
