Metal Injection is currently hosting an exclusive listen to Liminal, the second LP by UK-based PETBRICK. The new album from the dystopian/experimental metal duo formed by Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy, Soulwax) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Johnny Broke) sees release this Friday through Neurot Recordings and Rocket Recordings.
PETBRICK’s Liminal unloads an intense but organic biomechanical sound derived from the realms of industrial, death metal, hardcore, EDM, ambient, and more while defying any direct genre confines, as heard on their prior material including their collaboration with labelmates Deafkids and more. Liminal was recorded and mixed by Wayne Adams at Bearbiteshorse Studio in London, mastered by Stephen Kerrison at Tall Trees Audio Mastering, and completed with art direction/design by Chris Reeder and PETBRICK and Liminal logo by Iggor Cavalera. The record contains guest contributions from Steve Von Till (Neurosis), Jacob Bannon (Converge), Paula Rebbeledo (Rakta), and rappers Lord Goat and Truck Jewelz.
As the new album looms on its release, Wayne Adams reveals, “The word liminal means: Occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold. This sums up making the record over the last two years during isolation and attempting to return to normal life. We were experiencing so many different feelings simultaneously, having so many conflicting thoughts and I was definitely fighting internally to make sense out of the happenings and what comes next. It also gives an insight into the sonic world held within; it exists at a point where different worlds collide.”
Iggor Cavalera adds, “Liminal is a record made in a time full of uncertainty, freedom, and agony. The sounds in this record are a true reflection of these times… A full trip into ideas, with lots of help of amazing collaborators… I’m very proud to finally share this with everyone.”
With the advance stream of Liminal, Metal Injection writes, “The album sits right on the line between industrial ruination and outright metal, making for a final product that’ll kick your ass in all sorts of new and interesting ways!”
