Melbourne seven-piece King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard return to save us all, this time armed only with blastbeats, an arsenal of well-oiled locked and loaded guitars and a desire to melt faces clean off.
Their fifteenth studio album, ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’, released on Flightless Records, is by far The Gizz’s hardest and heaviest album to date.
Released just six months after the uplifting blues rock boogie and deep electro explorations of ‘Fishing For Fishes’ and drawing on the mid/late 1980s golden period of thrash metal - Metallica and Slayer certainly but also lesser-cited bands such as Exodus, Kreator and Overkill - ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ saw a wholly unexpected creative detour into new sonic terrain.
After a punishing release and touring schedule of 2017-18, ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ was recorded by a pared-down three piece King Gizzard line-up. ‘Infest The Rats’ Nest’ sees Stu and guitarist Joey Walker share all the guitar and bass parts, with (other drummer) Michael Cavanagh recording all the
drums. This small set-up ensures tight arrangements and maximum velocity - and another curveball from this most unpredictable (yet consistent) of bands.
