The Injester rose from the shadows this Halloween inviting us into their clown-metal horde with the debut release of two tracks via Transcend Music.
Following the unveiling of their first official video for ‘Apophenia’ they have now shared the lyric video for the second track ‘Knifeblower’ which you can watch here.
It’s a hauntingly theatrical, riff-raging riot, fuelled by heavy guitars, circus-induced samples and brutal beats with the distinctly raucous vocals from macabre ringmaster Ashe, leading the chant. Joining him is Auguste (guitar/backing vocals), Gaspard (guitar/backing vocals), Skinface (guitar), Old Sparky (bass), Yorick (keys/samples) and Morax (drums), powering The Injester’s pandemonium.
Together they create a metallic mix of fairground horror, theatre and mania inspired by the likes of Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Faith No More and Mr Bungle. And under their masked layers, this gang of misfits stand for all those who have ever felt outcast, excluded or misjudged.
“Clowns have always been misunderstood. The members of our horde have always been misunderstood. We don’t understand the masks we have to wear every day, so we made our own masks that make us understand”, discloses Ashe.
The Injester made their first live debut at Hammerfest 2019, awakening crowds with their explosive terror show, with each member unearthing their eerie characters and showcasing the extravagant playing skills that they have expertly crafted, having each built up years of experience during different musical endeavours.
Collectively they have played some of metal’s biggest stages, including Download Festival, Bloodstock, Hellfest, Wacken, Hard Rock Hell and countless other tours but as The Injester they are bringing something unforgettable and exciting to the live circuit.
Keep your eyes and ears open for more madness to come for 2020, with live performances and new music ready to be unleashed upon the world. The Injester are coming for you!
