Montreal’s VANTABLACK WARSHIP is a devastating maelstrom of dark, slow-churning metal, ready to devastate all in its path. Many of the members are veterans of the Quebec metal scene coming from well known and respected punk, death and thrash bands such as Arseniq33, Ghoulunatics, and Les Ekorchés among many others.
The oncoming onslaught of metal that is VANTABLACK WARSHIP has been fine tuning its craft to set sail with their debut self-titled EP set to be unleashed on October 9th, 2015 through Bandcamp and iTunes. But before its release, the five-piece juggernaut has teamed up with Exclaim! for the exclusive full stream of their EP at the following link below.
The band comments:
“Vantablack Warship are pleased to offer this collection of intense metal riff collages, which we hope you will enjoy! This ain’t no Loveboat!”
1. You’ll Burn For This (2:30)
2. The Pit (3:02)
3. The 99% (1:18)
4. Irreversible Kill (3:47)
5. From Silents To Haunting Possessions (3:38)
6. Fucked Machine (5:10)
EP Length: 19:27
Like the slow churn of a mechanical wheel grinding metal, the warship produces a punishing onslaught of sound from start to finish. Lyrically, the dreadnought writing forces are their bassist and vocalist, who focus on themes surrounding current events, horror, and politics – sometimes all rolled into one song.
VANTABLACK WARSHIP’s crew is comprised of Yannick (Pil) Pilon (Arseniq33, Buffalo Theory MTL) at the helm on vocals, Pat Gordon (Ghoulunatics, Les Ekorchés, Leprocy, Buffalo Theory Mtl) on guitar, Pierre Pitre (Arseniq33, Foreshadow) manning the drums, Thierry Hivon (Brutal Chérie, Sarkasm) rigging the guitar, and Kurt Clifford (Foreshadow) anchoring the bass.

“It’s a menacing mix of explosive thrash and you can let it pummel your senses by hitting play” – Exclaim!
“thrash, groove and gnarly vocals…it’s metal from start to finish and yet the overwhelming sense throughout is that this band’s attitude is punk to the core.” – Five Albums
“The six songs are exactly what you would expect from a band in this genre, hard, ruthless, agressive and this with a healthy dose of “f*ck the world and all in it” attitude…With this short record, Vantablack Warship shows they fit right into the current crossover scene and fans of bands like Municipal Waste or Suicidal Tendencies can surely appreciate this little piece of work.” – Lords of Metal
