Wasted Death Get Uglier Than Hell

July 02, 2021


APF Records is delighted to confirm the release of WASTED DEATH's sophomore EP Ugly As Hell II – Uglier Than Hell on 13th August 2021. First single Tomorrow’s Children Will Eat Algae is on all streaming sites now.

Wasted Death is a balls-out gutter punk metal band featuring Wayne Adams of Big Lad and Petbrick (with Igor Cavalera), Charlie Davis of Beggar and Tom Brewins of USA Nails. They’re a bit d-beat, a bit Converge, a bit noise rock, a bit fuckin’ special.

Landing just four months after their debut EP Ugly As Hell (released by APF Records on 9th April), Charlie Davis says:

We reckon we’ve done it again on Ugly As Hell II: Uglier As Hell. The strings are all tuned to the same note, the drums are barrelling past at semi-legal speeds and the vocals are popping veins left right and centre. It’s another great big slap in the chops.

This time we’ve ramped it up and broadened the influences. It’s our thrashed-up, snot-nosed punk/metal vibe, landing somewhere between Extreme Noise Terror and Converge and the Melvins, but this time the energy levels are cranked, the contempt is as virulent as ever and the tunes go in even weirder directions. Whether it’s injecting some High On Fire barbarism or some mean Amphetamine Reptile-style angularity, things here have developed into a more interesting beast with a more varied set of influences while retaining the same bat-shit wildness that makes Wasted Death what it is.

This time it’s not just ugly: it’s hit-every-branch-on-the-way-down, fully minging, totally hopeless fugliness.”

Ugly As Hell II – Uglier Than Hell will be available on CD, cassette tape, digital download and t-shirt bundle. Pre-orders are open now in our website store.

Wasted Death play their first ever live dates this autumn:

7 September - The Victoria, Dalston, London

8 October - The Moon, Cardif

What the press are saying about Wasted Death:

“Deliciously depraved and grimy, for people who like their punk to have blood and rust on its safety pin and metal that gives you a black eye. Wasted Death have distilled the perfect microcosm of extreme brutality.” – THE SLEEPING SHAMAN

“This EP has everything; perfect instrumentation, vocals and production. Bringing something new to the table, and showing that genres have no bounds, Wasted Death are a name to watch". – DISTORTED SOUND

“Grinding metal mashing the brain matter into mush with punk snarl to make you feel like you’ve literally been chewed up and spat out. Savage stuff.” – GBHBL

“Grind fans, Noise fans, Hardcore fans, Punk fans. You will all find something to enjoy here. Wasted Death take approximately 13 or so minutes to cave your cranium in but it’s the best 13 minutes you will experience in 2021. Ugly As Hell is beautiful.” – MASS MOVEMENT
