Meat Train | Live Booking:
The Meat Train rolls on through the darkness, bringing its carnival of grotesque horrors and bloodlust to town after town after town...Originally formed in 2011 by the duo of guitarists, Mike Pearson and Chas Fenoughty, Meat Train took their name from the Clive Barker short story, The Midnight Meat Train and their inspiration from the tale’s bizarre, dark brutality. As soon as their line-up was complete Meat Train took their festering, filthy death metal to the stage. The experienced musicians, who collectively boast past experience with Winter Of Torment, Thus Defiled and an array of other UK underground talent, lock together to form an intimidating war machine in the live arena. Right from the start it was obvious that the Meat Train was too powerful a proposition to be trapped on the usual circuit of pubs and clubs and very quickly the offers began to flood in from the furthest corners of the globe... With just one album under their belts Meat Train found themselves flying out to destinations as far afield as Thailand, The Philippines and Vietnam – blazing a bloody trail into territories most bands can only imagine playing. They even headlined the prestigious Nepal Deathfest in Kathmandu, decimating the audience with a performance no attendee will ever forget. In 2017 Meat Train signed a new deal with Contagion Records and released their gut-churning, skull-crushing second album, Random Acts Of Carnage – a release that took their blood splattered visions of horror to a whole new level. The album was launched at an unforgettable London show with DE PROFUNDIS and ATVM that fully demonstrated Meat Train’s new visceral, cutting edge. At the same time Meat Train are honing their image and stage presentation, making sure that any future live encounters with these blood thirsty beasts will be even more unforgettable, with a sense of danger you can almost taste. When the Meat Train rolls into town, you better be ready...
“...death metal that will make you feel sick to your stomach...”
