PETBRICK, the duo comprising Wayne Adams (Big Lad/Death Pedals/Johnny Broke) and Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Soulwax/Mixhell), are releasing their debut album I via Rocket Recordings on 25 October.
I is packed with guest vocalists – from Full Of Hell’s Dylan Walker to Integrity’s legendary vocal exorcist Dwid Hellion and from Mixhell’s Laima Leyton to Warmduscher’s Mutado Pintado. Get fucking excited!!!
Listen to the first track “Horse” below.
The meeting of the duo’s minds initially took place after Iggor – these days a London resident – was impressed by a Big Lad show at Camden Underworld, subsequently resulting in the two staying in touch via email, swapping files of material they were working on, bonding over Eurorack modular synth gear and eventually Iggor visiting Wayne’s Bearbiteshorse Studio, where coffee-fuelled initial jams proved so fruitful that the project took on a life of its own. “We wanted to do something different than the other projects we were involved in. Making horrible noise was the first concept behind Petbrick” says Iggor.
“I think we realised that we were both pretty much in tune with each other’s taste, both into a lot of weird electronic music, as well as some decent far out guitar stuff. For me personally I definitely pushed the electronics in a much harsher direction” reckons Wayne.
