Our Spotlight this week shines on one of the newest bands to hit the Bury St Edmunds music scene in the past year: thrash metal trio ALL WE KNOW.
The band started with founding members Joel Richardson (guitar) and Elliott Morse (bass and vocals) and some friends, wanting to play vastly heavier and technical music than they were before in their previous projects.
ALL WE KNOW released debut track Deprivation in mid-2017, ahead of Charlie Sturgeon (drummer) joining the band. This came after months of rotated line-ups, though now they had finally settled on their ‘sound’.
The trio made their live music debut at one of BSE’s acclaimed Washing Machine nights at The Hunter Club in November alongside local metal-rock legends Janet Street Slaughter. A real test for the band, but they proved on the night they are definitely on course to be a great addition to the local scene.
Tonight, we premiere two BRAND NEW tracks from ALL WE KNOW, Hear Me Out and Fractured. You can listen to them on SoundCloud below:
The first track Hear Me Out starts with a mega guitar riff and absolutely thrashing drumming, roundly complimented by Morse’s harsh roars. It’s a hardcore three-minute thrill ride, as is second track Fractured. If you’re a fan of Architects and Code Orange, you’ll love these two tracks!
The band cite their musical influences from the likes of Architects, Turnstile and Behemoth, which really shines through in their music.
2018 sees the trio want to play more gigs and eventually record their debut EP, and both will most definitely be achieved.
ALL WE KNOW are in Heat 4 of BurySOUND this year against the likes of Cambridgeshire’s shoegaze outfit Lemondaze and alt-rockers Maverick! Heat 4 takes place on Friday 16th February at BSE’s The Hunter Club. Tickets are £5, 6pm doors.
