STRANGLE WIRE – THE DARK TRIAD
LABEL: GRINDSCENE RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: 23/03/18
Behind the locked doors that lie in the shadows, at the end of forgotten passageways, in the depths of every human mind...madness waits, scratching at the splintered wood with bleeding fingers. Insanity and depravity in all its many hues and colours – blood red to pitch black – kept concealed and restrained for the sake of our society; that thin wall of laws and empathy that saves us from ourselves. But sometimes those locks fail, or the keys are purposefully turned, unleashing the monsters from within. Strangle Wire’s The Dark Triad is the sound of the monsters set free, the sound of broken minds and twisted personalities, the sound of an insidious assault on the light that keeps the night at bay.
Summoned into existence in Belfast, Northern Ireland, barely a year ago, Strangle Wire’s ineffable darkness and intimidating power is the result of a fusion of talent and experience. Between them, the members of this most potent death machine can boast decades of experience in the catacombs of the metal underground but together they have created something greater than all their past endeavours; something so severe, so saturated in dire cruelty and undiluted poison as to be unstoppable.
The dungeon doors first creaked open in June of 2017, when Grindscene Records sent Strangle Wire’s first EP, Narcissism, out into the world. The two tracks from that limited edition release now form the first chapter of the colossal new album, The Dark Triad. Divided into three sections, entitled Narcissism, Psychopathy and Machiavellianism, The Dark Triad takes the listener into the dark heart of the human condition, propelling them ever onward with a musical force of savage intensity, death metal possessed of speed, groove and supreme heaviness. Produced by Chris Fielding (Hooded Menace, Primordial, Witchsorrow etc) this album hits with skull-splintering force.
With an imminent performance at Decimation Fest II in Madrid, with Haemorrhage and Disavowed, to be followed by a prestigious slot at the Las Vegas Deathfest in May, alongside Dying Fetus and Incantation Strangle Wire are set to deliver their message of madness to the world.
