Official music video for "Drowing, Fading, Falling" from Meshiaak's debut 'Alliance Of Thieves' which has been released by Mascot Records on August 19.
In a world where thrash has blended with metalcore, black metal, and NWOBHM, it’s hard justice a band of brothers has come together to champion songwriting, performance, and production this straightforward. Meshiaak bestows upon the scene an egregiously confident, “old soul” record that evokes the magic of Ride the Lightning, Rust in Peace, South of Heaven and Burn My Eyes.
Formed in Melbourne, Australia by 4ARM’s Danny Camilleri and Teramaze’s Dean Wells, the band is rounded out by bassist Nick Walker and major rhythmic weapon Jon Dette (Iced Earth, Slayer, Testament).
Throughout the sonic and emotional peaks and valleys of this expertly paced and sequenced record, it becomes obvious that all four of these guys have spent a lifetime soaking in the best of metal music and woodshedding it outward onto tape. The listener comes away with rock-solid confidence in the band as stadium-level songwriters capable and worthy of anchoring... let’s call it the “next next four” somewhere down the line generationally speaking past the original eight to ten thrash bands that wrote and then executed this well.
“This style of music gets you pumped up, and so we just want people to feel what we felt during the time that we wrote it. It’s exciting music and I think metalheads are really going to dig it. It’s the perfect soundtrack for punch-ups with your mates.”
