Born in the slum of Woking, sinister sludge merchants Gutlocker spit out menacing stoner thrash grooves and asylum escape vocals that merge with eerie dynamics and a hardcore grit. The groove metallers unleash their new EP, Cry Havoc!, on Friday 20th April. Prior to this, the riff slingers reveal a new track: “Welcome To Fucktown”.
Since their formation, Gutlocker have destroyed stages throughout England with their face-melting concoction of groove metal laced with gnarly noise. The Southern crew have stamped their mark on the nation’s highways, playing a cluster of fleapits throughout the country. Supports with Trepalium, Evil Scarecrow and Raging Speedhorn, and an appearance at Bloodstock, have only enhanced their growing reputation.
The raucous gang aspire for new heights with their brand new EP, Cry Havoc!, which is a sheer beast of a record. Their forthcoming single, “Bitter Memory”, kicks off proceedings with ear-splitting riffery and hammering drum rhythms, while their current single, “Welcome To Fucktown”, claws at your inners with its gut-wrenching vocals and bone-crushing guitar lines. It’s an impressive EP that has enough power and mass to level an apartment block. There’s now nothing stopping Gutlocker from earning a prominent place within the UK metal hierarchy.
