The track is taken from their new EP â€œTwitcherâ€, which was released in June 2014.
After touring multiple times around Australia in support of their second album â€œConsume Raptureâ€, the Sydney-based experimental groove metal trio retreated to their Shadow Mekanik Studios work on the third Kunvuk album. Recorded, engineered and mixed again by the bandâ€™s guitarist and singer David Hart â€œTwitcherâ€ is the most focused and deadly release the band has ever recorded.
â€œWe set out to write a huge batch of songs with the intent to pick the most promising tracks and work those up into a dense and multi-layered flurry of noise, intensity and grooveâ€ comments Hart. â€œWe are going through a process of continually working to evolve our sound and with this EP we have made another leap forward introducing new elements and refining our established sound.â€ The band, rounded out by bassist Luis Barra and lead guitarist Oz Slater, do just that on Twitcher creating a volatile monster that puts Kunvuk in a unique space in the modern metal music scene.
The album was again mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (DEATH, SWANS, MASTODON, CONVERGE, BARONESS, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, CLUTCH) in New Windsor, New York.
The six tracks that form â€œTwitcherâ€ contain the bandâ€™s most focused material yet, demonstrating Kunvukâ€™s songwriting skills and broadening palette of sounds. Whether it be through thrash, punk freak-outs (â€œInto Twitcherâ€), snappy, chunky stompers interbred with industrial electronic discharges (â€œNetworkingâ€, Mexican Death Popâ€) or emotional slabs of dark atmospheric metal (â€œWavesâ€, â€œOne Voteâ€) the EP is dense, experimental and proves that Kunvuk is amongst the leaders of modern metal.
