103: VILE CREATURE

Vile Creature are a duo from Ontario who, topically, focus on queer and trans rights, veganism, and more, and musically… well, musically theyโ€™re really fucking heavy.

A monstrous amalgam of sludge, doom, general noise and other extremeness makes Vile Creature a formidable force in extreme metal.

The riffs are deliciously sludgy, the vocals relentless, and the pounding rhythm section is hypnotic. Their whole sound is unsettling, and deeply textured. It is unfriendly, yet remarkably rewarding.

Vile Creatureโ€™s most recent album, the 2020 LP Glory, Glory! Apathy Took Helm! received a Juno Award nominations for Best Metal Album and itโ€™s not hard to see this as further proof of the upward trajectory the band finds themselves on. Expect to hear a lot more about Vile Creature in the future.
