Birmingham’s CREATURE make one hell of a mark today, with the release of their colossal EP HEX today, Friday 3rd May, on Grey Ghost Records. It’s the debut EP from the band and the first in a trilogy of EPs to be issued from their own Grey Ghost Records label, recorded with revered UK producer Steve Sears (Gallows, Krokodil) and artwork by UK illustrator Luke Preece (Metallica, Ghost, Ozzy Osbourne).

To mark the release, the trio release their abrasive new single and video for ‘Liquid Gold’, which you can watch exclusively on Metal Hammer – HERE

Liquid Gold is an impassioned vent at the disgusting way consumerism is valued in modern day society.”, explains vocalist and guitarist James Thompson, “Our day-to-day values are fucked. The general public – whether they are aware of it or not – being forced to feed this grotesque and superficial mindset just to survive. Greed has devalued our drugs industry, lowered the quality of our food industries and cheapened our social values purely through systems that create fear, alienate and wrongly educate the mass populous. Disconnect yourself from this, be real and don’t lose your sense of self – these are the key messages I wanted to convey in the track

In an age where heavy bands are seduced by the allure of processed guitars, triggered drums and quantised production, HEX is an unrelenting burst of crushing energy that truly represents the sound of CREATURE. No click tracks, no samples, no inauthenticity.

James Thompson, guitarist and vocalist, says “These EPs are a statement. A statement that says the art of being a band of humans still exists. You can’t manufacture energy, you can’t manufacture passion, you can’t manufacture raw instrumentation in its purest form. The advance of modern production is incredible, and has enabled some wonderful art, but the flipside is that the true essence of heavy music is lost. We want to remind people of what raw grit and emotion sounds like. We don’t want it to die and that is why CREATURE exists.”
