“There’s nothing more therapeutic than screaming your head off,” says Steven Dobb, vocalist/guitarist of The Hyena Kill. “When you’ve had a shit day, it’s incredibly cathartic to step into a rehearsal room and just make the loudest noise imaginable.”
The Hyena Kill will release their debut album Atomised on May 16. It’s a beast, eight tracks of feral, ferocious, full-tilt rock ‘n’ roll noise dealing with love and loss, rejection and vengeance, desperation and dreams… all the important stuff. And it’s an album that marks out the Manchester duo (completed by hard-hitting drummer Lorna Blundell) as one of the most vital and uncompromising acts to emerge from the UK’s underground rock community in years.
“When we started out there weren’t really any bands in Manchester like us,” says Dobb. “Our original aim was pretty simple: we wanted to make really heavy, aggressive music, to rock out and play the filthiest riffs we could. We didn’t fit in to Manchester’s indie scene, or the local metal scene, so we just wanted to carve out our own space.”
“The album isn’t a concept album,” says Dobb, “but it’s got a lot of darkness and pain in there, coming from frustrations and insecurities and anger with past situations and day-to-day life. The bands who influence us most are uncompromising and honest and unafraid to let their emotions show, and hopefully that same attitude shines through in what we do.”
Recorded and mixed by Tom Peters at the Grand Studio in Clitheroe, Lancashire, mastered, thanks to a successful Pledge campaign, at London’s legendary Abbey Road studios by Christian Wright (who has cut albums for the likes of Radiohead, Blur and Ed Sheeran), and set for release on the band’s own Proud Cow imprint, Atomised represents a bold step forward from a band who’ve never been afraid to do things their own way.
