They say that big things come in small packages. Now, I don’t know who these “they” are, but I’m pretty sure that few people have heard “their” lesser known, saying, “Great bands come from small islands”. If you look up this phrase, I’m pretty sure the first band cited as an example will be Psycroptic. This band from Hobart, Tasmania has been creating waves in the tech-death metal scene since the early 2000’s. The upcoming album ‘Psycroptic’ gives you a taste of what the band is all about in one very tight and intense dose of death metal. These guys are a force to be reckoned with, and make that clear on this album right from the get-go. Blending multiple styles but staying true to the tech-death core, it seems like Psycroptic have laid bare their style and influences for all to see on this album. ‘Psycroptic’ is extremely diverse in the way its songs are written. It’s got the speed, the complexity, the catchy hooks, the fast drumming, and its running length is perfect.
Gearing up for the release of the new self titled album, Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with founding member David Haley. He discusses new self titled album, songwriting, blending progressive with technical death metal, his intense drumming and much more.
