Listen to "From the Murky Depths" HERE!
VHS return with their third album, "We're Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs". With tongue still firmly planted in cheek, this Canadian trio is exploring the murky depths with their latest release. Sea monsters, killer whales, and bloodthirsty creatures make up the majority of the lyrical content, while the usual killer in a mask makes a brief appearance, which should be expected of any sequel! The album shows the band staying true to their diverse and catchy style, taking elements from death metal, punk and even hair metal throughout the album's 14 tracks. Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder lends his snarl to the midtempo "Rooting For the Villain", while Matt Harvey of Exhumed adds an extra layer of sickness to the rocking nod to "Humanoids from the Deep", "Death and Carnage Coming in Waves". Matt also supplies the albums opening orchestral intro as well.
"We're Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs" will be released on 26th July 2019 via Rotten Roll Rex (CD) and HPGD Productions (digital).
