Mathcore Index Premiere SLAGDUSTER’s ‘Profane Puppet’; New Album ‘Deadweight’ Out May 5th
Inspired by such giants as Goijira, Sikth, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, SLAGDUSTER offer a progressive, groovy, creative, unique and heavy sound. It’s been a few years since their 2010 debut album ‘Nature.Humanity.Machine’ hit playlists for metal fans around the globe and now the isolated band from Grand Forks, BC return in 2017 to unleash their follow up ‘Deadweight’ due out on May 5th, 2017. Previously giving fans two singles to check out ‘Mother’s Milk’ (listen here) and ‘Peeping Ron’ (listen here), SLAGDUSTER is sharing another track off the upcoming release with an exclusive premiere on Mathcore Index for ‘Profane Puppet’ at the following link: http://www.mathcoreindex.com/2017/04/exclusive-premiere-slagduster-profane.html
‘Deadweight’ features nine tracks that have been very slowly and carefully crafted over the years. No songs were scrapped; all were completely revamped continuously for years. SLAGDUSTER put way more effort into collaborative song writing, which has significantly advanced their original sound. Each track contains a variety of things, ranging from ripping riffs and tremolo melodies to soft transitional parts and psychedelic interludes on top of constant heaviness and groove.

“witness their antics and groove metal.” – Beatroute (Live review Armstrong Metalfest 2016)
“this is one seriously cool album — a collection of inventive, head-spinning songs played by four extremely talented musicians.” – No Clean Singing (review of 2010’s Nature. Humanity. Machine.)
“Although Slagduster’s music thrives on instrumental variation on themes within each song, with dynamic tempos and even occasional changes in time signature, the songs remain anchored to driving rhythms that organize the jumping, darting complexity of the music.”- No Clean Singing (review of 2010’s Nature. Humanity. Machine.)
“This release is oddly appealing, intriguing, a little different and undeniably catchy.
Step outside your comfort zone and give this diverse chunk of metal a spin you may well be surprised as was I. Definite groove, unpredictable melodies all in a style that’s wholly enjoyable.” – Thy Demons Be Scribblin (review of 2010’s Nature. Humanity. Machine.)
