Premiering their new music video ‘Corporate Child’ to fans in venues during their Halloween weekend shows in Montreal and Quebec City, 2014 Wacken Metal Canada champions and thrashers MUTANK are proud to unleash it online via their MUtube channel at the following link below in support of ‘M.E.C.H. Metal’ released in early 2014, which is available as a pay what you want download on bandcamp http://mutankthrash.bandcamp.com/ plus audio cassette.
Vocalist / bassist Stephen Reynolds comments:
“Leave your brain in the trash, you won’t need it today. MUTANK is back with our first official video for the song “Corporate Child” from our debut album “M.E.C.H. Metal”. This two minute fifty second speedbomb is completely self-shot, self-directed and raw as a skinned knee with editing by myself, Adam Reynolds and Justin Oakey. Join us as we thrash-mob a local shopping center, attempt to solve the unsolvable black MUbix cube and flush our brains down the toilet all in the name of good zombie-consumerist fun! Expect more visuals out of the MUTANK camp soon, but for now share this with anyone you know who has poor taste, bad hearing and a penchant for snort-wrecking thrash!”

Listen up! You want mosh happy crossover-thrash from another planet? Fast riffs? Rippin’ solos? Then stop giving a fuck what other people think and prepare for some neck aerobics from Montreal, QC’s MUTANK!
Formed when three Newfoundlanders crossed paths in the Canadian heavy metal capital with Ahmed Saad who hails from the Middle East, the injection of music immediately began to flow through their veins and M.E.C.H. metal was soon born.
“It stands for Middle East Coast Heavy Metal; Our drummer being from the Middle East and the rest of the members being from the east coast of Canada,” explains Stephen Reynolds (bass, vocals).
It also just so happens to be the title of the band’s debut album ‘M.E.C.H. Metal’, which features eight monumental thrash tracks that will either make you want to punch something or just plain dance while delivering thoughtful, honest lyrics for those who wish to look deeper.
“Every single person in this band is a songwriter, so the songs come out with their own feel and develop naturally.’ continues Reynolds. ‘We don’t shackle ourselves to any kind of focused idea, which brings about a sort of honesty in the music not often found in metal.’
M.E.C.H. Metal was unleashed on February 1, 2014 with the video ‘Heavy Hand of The Doomsday Clock‘ and is available on the band’s bandcamp here.
Quick Fact: MUTANK are the 2014 Wacken Metal Battle Canada Champions being judged by industry music reps #1 out of over 100 Canadian bands to rep Canada at the international Metal Battle in Wacken, Germany during 2014’s Wacken Open Air Fest (the largest in the world).

“they play good-natured thrash a la Overkill and Exodus… perfectly serviceable and enjoyable, definitely more effective when they are playing fast.” – Decibel Mag
“WAR is a vicious sonic attack… [M.E.C.H. Metal] it’s a ferocious delight.” – Powerplay Magazine UK
“[MUTANK] fuse old school speed metal and present day crossover thrash into one package of fun.” – Metalhorizons
“MUTANK is like a Coffee Crisp bar: crunchy as hell, and without any gooey center.” – Bucket List Music Reviews
“Fans of old school speed metal and more metallically oriented crossover thrash should check out the compact and intense 25-minute speedbomb that is “M.E.C.H. Metal”.” – Metal Music Archives
“I personally think [M.E.C.H. Metal] could be contender for best album of the year!”- High Speed Hangover
“M.E.C.H. Metal is fast. Of course, the dual guitars’ riffs are aggressive and complementary; and drums are as constant as the caterpillars tracks of a tank; but the album gets its real flavour via the pace of the songs and their short and simple structure. Ranging from 1:57 to 4:03, this is an album that explodes in our face in less than 25 minutes, with a remarkable intensity.” – Metal Made In Canada
