EATEN BY SHARKS Warn Of Unethical Consumption In Guitar Playthrough For “Kill and Consume”
Eaten by Sharks has been lurking in the dark for the past couple of years while the world was locked down, waiting patiently to unleash their second album “Eradication” upon unsuspecting listeners. That time has come, they have recently released the album and are following it up with a guitar playthrough video for the track “Kill and Consume”. This is a first-hand look at the song which washes over the listener boasting a slammy, black metal feels, a slick Revocation type jazzy middle eight, and a simple message - don’t eat shark soup less you become cursed for poor choices.
They explain what they are like in the flesh:
“It’s tight as nails and loud as fuck. We are very lucky to have Justin as the backbone of the band, he hits so fucking hard we have to crank our amps to 11. We spend a lot of time working on our songs at rehearsal so you get a good clear punch in the face. If we can’t hear the riffs when the sound hits the air in rehearsal, it’s time to tweak structure or tone until it makes sense.”
The band says that they can’t wait for their fans to hear the album and this playthrough video adds to the experience that is Eaten By Sharks. The production on “Eradication” blows their last release “We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat” (2013) out of the water and it clearly shows they have poured blood, sweat, and tears into this offering. This is partially due to tight musicianship, and dedication as well as Christian Donaldson’s expertise in capturing a mammoth sound that will keep the listeners coming back for more.
Eaten By Sharks lean into their nautical hell narrative, and set out to rattle your existence like a mega-tsunami. They are recommended listening for fans of Despised Icon, Fit For An Autopsy, and Cattle Decapitation.
