Bangover Talks EPs, Shows, and Much More!

Thrashers BANGOVER are from the U.K. releasing several EP's, playing shows with so much more incoming, there is no stopping these mad men of thrash metal! Discover the talks of the metal scene, with release content, shows, and more.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We formed in 2011 as a 3 piece after meeting on the now deceased Shortly after this we added a second guitarist as we had just released our first EP (Divine Command Theory) and realized that we couldn’t effectively replicate the songs live with just one. Since then we have changed vocalist and bassist once and drummer twice. We now lineup as Andreas Morelli (Vocals), Scott Grimble (Guitar), Jack Taylor (Guitar), Alex Comley (Bass) and Marco Antonio (Drums).

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The band Municipal Waste are one of our biggest influences and we got the name from one of their songs. We actually met them at Bloodstock and told them this but they couldn’t have cared less! Never meet your heros ey? Also, a bangover is the pain the neck that you get from headbanging too much.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in London and we like to think were a strong part of the metal community in and around Camden. We are closest friends with Anoxide, Dygora, Hydra, Annunciation, Deep Throat Trauma and Total Consumption.

4. How would you describe your style?

We are primarily thrash but we cover a lot of genres from power to death to groove. We also don’t take ourselves too seriously – there are enough songs about satan and evil so why not a few about toothpaste and Lawrence of Arabia?

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have released 2 EP's and most recently our first LP, Shovel Butcher. Were pretty proud of the latest album and everything I just mentioned about our style is what you'll find. Thrash, Groove, Death, Power, Stupidity.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We have just started writing material for the next album although this wont be out until next year. The title at the moment is ‘Close Encounters of the Thrash Kind’.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Were currently trying to book shows and would be very open to a tour as our schedule is pretty clear. Any promoters reading this get in touch!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We would love to get the album a little bit more notoriety, get on tour and play some more festivals. We would love to return to Bloodstock at some point – its our spiritual home!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That failure to floss could lead to death.
