WESTON SUPER MAIM: The Razor’s Edge Streams 180-Degree Murder From Transatlantic Extreme/Progressive Tech Metal Duo; EP To See Release This Friday Via Dark Trail Records

UK web portal The Razor’s Edge is currently streaming 180-Degree Murder, the scorching debut EP from transatlantic extreme/progressive tech metal duo WESTON SUPER MAIM. The premiere comes on the eve of the offering’s official release via Dark Trail Records. WESTON SUPER MAIM has been lurking in the shadows as a one-man recording project spearheaded by UK musician Tom Stevens (All Of Space, Brown Stratos) for some time, however 180-Degree Murder marks a new level of intent, with US-based Seth Detrick of Los Angeles thrash outfit PDP uniting with Stevens to handle vocal duties. Together the pair deliver a devastatingly heavy, surprisingly melodic journey through the extreme metal landscape. Writes The Razor’s Edge in part, “With numerous styles curled tightly into this hard balled two-track EP, it’s a challenge to put a label onto the band. Indeed, why should you? The base line is that it is at times ferociously heavy, with Meshuggah type angular time signatures, the abstract progressiveness of Car Bomb combined with the concrete welding riffage of Crowbar. It’s simply brutal. And yet, there’s a haunting, eerie feel to it with blasts of melody and more gentle passages that strangely juxtapose comfortably. In particular, the longer of the two tracks, the nine-minute ‘We Need to Talk About Heaven’ ebbs and flows with a fluidity that belies the expected impact…” Stream WESTON SUPER MAIM’s180-Degree Murder, exclusively at The Razor’s Edge, at THIS LOCATION.
