Vesicarum are a visceral five-piece death metal band from Kent, UK, bursting at the seams with brutal energy - featuring frantic, technical riffing; topped off with frontman Glynn Neve’s signature vocal style.
The band was originally created in 2016 as a solo project by Glynn, growing in early 2018 to include guitarists Martin Shipton and James Thompson, and drummer Donal McGee.
The name, ‘Vesicarum’ - meaning ‘to fester’, in Latin is an ode to the sinister nature of the band’s music and lyrical content. Featuring darker subjects including serial killers and The Ankou (The Graveyard Watcher), the central lyrical theme is hatred - the band describe their music as “an adrenaline rush that is a great escape from the stresses and strains of life.”
After joining forces with One Eyed Toad Records in late 2019, the band went on to release their highly successful debut EP ‘Reign Of Terror’ in the first half of 2020. Lead single ‘The Sick And Depraved’ achieved worldwide airplay; while the EP itself received widespread attention, notably featuring in Zero Tolerance Magazine.
With bassist Mark Willson bolstering the band’s roster; Vesicarum are poised to return to the studio for more sonic mayhem.
