Among Australia’s most lethal and extreme new bands, KING PARROT are touring in support of their Bite Your Head Off full-length released via Candlelight Records last year. Produced by Jason Fuller (Blood Duster, Dern Rutlidge) and Adam Calaitzis (Damaged, Abramelin), the record manages to capture the raw intensity of their live shows, defying genres with a cross section attack of thrash, grind, punk and hardcore. crowned the record, “a calculated piece of extreme art, with strong musicianship and a production job skilfully left just on the right side of raw and dirty,” in a 9/10 score Ghost Cult boasts, “its ceaseless brutality will do much more than just rip your head off… from start to finish it tears you limb from limb,” while the Metal Observer adds, “Whether it’s ‘Dead End,’ the shortest, meanest track on the album, or ‘Cold Steel Probe,’ an infectious onslaught of multi-leveled grind that has no qualms about dragging coffins or simply setting them afire, KING PARROT‘s Bite Your Head Off is a no-brainer, comfortably taking a seat next to other 2012 entries like Strong Intention’s Razorblade Express, Mulletcorpse’s Disinfect, and Kess’khtak’s Nurturing Conditions For Rupture. Killer stuff.”
