About “Day Of The Woman”:
DAY OF THE WOMAN is a 4-track EP fusing heavy guitar with stylistic electronic synths and dark, industrial atmospheres. It is the future-sound of our doomed existence. With lyrical content exploring our addiction to technology, violence against women, and the current downward trends in society, this EP is designed to make the listener question the world around them, while snapping their necks to head-banging tunes with catchy riffs in the process.

Day Of The Woman EP Teaser
800 THROATS is a one-man industrial metal project formed by South African Dubstep/Psytrance EDM artist LUKA.
800 THROATS began during the throes of the pandemic as the world entered lockdown, when people were deprived of going out, forced to stay indoors, and grapple with the existential angst of their life choices. Frustrated by the restrictive measures, deprived of concerts or festivals, 800 THROATS formed as an escape to expel the creative build-up of being deprived of certain freedoms.
The result was a head-shattering explosion of anger fused into the first release ‘The Madness EP’, a raw, gnarly, intense 4-track EP that captured the essence of being confined, released mid-2021.
800 THROATS’S influences are ever-expanding, drawing on electronic influences such as Aphex Twin and Skrillex, to mainstay industrial metal powerhouses such as Fear Factory, Static-X, Ministry, and Rammstein, not to mention Tool.
This amalgamation of styles has allowed 800 THROATS to cultivate its own unique aesthetic, dubbed Cyber Metal, that while familiar, offers something different for the listener craving a fresh take on extreme music.
