“Teeth Swallower”, the new video from Australian metallers KUNVUK, can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s second album, “Consume Rapture”, which was released in June 2012. The CD was recorded, engineered and mixed by the band’s guitarist and singer David Hart and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (DEATH, SWANS, MASTODON, CONVERGE, BARONESS, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, CLUTCH) in New Windsor, New York.
The nine tracks that form “Consume Rapture” contain the band’s most diverse material yet; demonstrating KUNVUK‘s complex and contrasting sound scapes. Whether it be through hyperventilating thrash crashing into back-breaking breakdowns (“Become Monster”), agitated structures interbred with downright hostility (“Rapture Pt. 1”) or colossal rhythmic structures scarred with angular discord (“Teeth Swallower”, “Taped”) the album pumps and breathes in some of the most unexpected, energetic and captivating ways.
KUNVUK donated 50% of all profits from its recent “Become Monster” tour to the Save The Tassie Devil foundation, which works to help the endangered Tasmanian Devils through breeding programs and research into devil facial tumor disease.
To spread the stomping noise of “Consume Rapture”, KUNVUK will taking its fierce live show to the furthest flung areas of Australia and internationally. No stranger to long jaunts across the earth, KUNVUK is sharpening its teeth in anticipation of the supporting tours for the new record.
“We live for playing this music live,” the band says. “Many bands say that but we actually mean it. We get sick when we don’t play. We get weak when we don’t scream. A KUNVUK live show is a physical and mental exorcism. We load in, sweat, bleed, howl and then load out for the next show. We aren’t here to fix our hair and pat each other on the back. We are here to explode and that is all we are interested in.”
