VHS: We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs

In a gruesome amalgamation of death metal, punk and thrash, VHS continue to terrorize graveyards and this time it is with their third full length titled We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs. This zombifying, vein draining offering features fourteen total tracks of flesh tearing savagery. From one track to the next you are greeted by nothing but brain masticating metal. Through this release, VHS marches through each offering at a torrid pace, aiming to claim your life only to reanimate you to make you a part of their ever growing horde of animated corpses.

To start their new wicked offering off, VHS greets you with Full Scream Ahead. Full Scream Ahead is an ambient intro that sounds like an opening credit sequence track of an 80’s horror movie. As the foreboding intro plays you become further and further immersed in the atmosphere, until it fades into obscurity only for you to become pelted by the remaining thirteen flesh devouring offerings. Once the intro does subside, you are subjected to one track after the next of terrorizing metal. Through this release, VHS does a great job of incorporating the numerous genres in which they employ to create a unique sound.

Within certain tracks you can hear influences from all of the genres they utilize and in other offerings you will catch a pure death metal influence, thrash, punk or even hair metal influence. Through We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs, VHS does a great job of mixing up their sound through each of thirteen tracks to provide you with an incredibly diverse and varied sound. Never are you to hear the same thing twice as VHS continuously shifts and shapes their sound to however they see fit. No matter what sound it is that you come across through whichever track, each one is just as heavy and face eating as the next.

Not only is each track within We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs spinal fluid draining heavy, but they are just as catchy and memorable. You will not leave your listen without each track becoming embedded in your brain like a parasite. Sooner rather than later you will have each cut rolling around in your head for quite some time. VHS has always struck a great balance between being as heavy as they can be with constantly providing entertaining and highly memorable tracks, and that certainly remains true with We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs.

VHS has done it once again with We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs as they offer up yet another heavy yet entirely memorable record. VHS continues to impress and continues to offer up a brand of metal that is entirely unique and incredibly entertaining.

We’re Gonna Need Some Bigger Riffs will be unleashed July 26 through Rotten Roll Rex for physical releases and HPGD Productions for the digital release. Pre-orders are available here and here.

In putrid and vile fun and glory, VHS unleash sixteen new blood curdling tracks that rot under the name The New Batch. Taking inspiration from movies such as: Silent Night, Street Trash, House By The Cemetery and much more, VHS create an overall incredibly entertaining yet blood draining offering in The New Batch. Through each of the sixteen tracks that make an appearance here, you are treated to grinding and blood spurting offering after grinding and blood spurting offering that snaps your neck back with intent. As much fun as these tracks are they are just as deadly as VHS seems to have a complete disregard for human life as they sand away at your cranium for the better part of a half an hour.

The New Batch begins with an intro titled Welcome to The New Batch which features a creepy and cackling monologue that assures you that you are about to have one hell of a ride, and one hell of a ride is exactly what you have. As soon as the intro is over, VHS hit you with a short but punchy track that gives you a bit of a rotted taste of what is to come. Each track is a neck twisting offering that features punk, death metal and grind influences ultimately leaving your head spinning. The majority of the gore filled offerings within this release are fairly short yet violent leaving you bloodied and mangled at the end of it all. For fifteen straight tracks and for thirty total minutes, you come face to face with bleeding raw and unrelenting grinding tunes that will be bouncing around your skull for some time.

Now, as brutalizing and skin carving as these tunes are, they are just as entertaining and memorable. The New Batch is an incredibly fun listen, one that has you coming back for more and more deadly mayhem. Each track is well constructed and well performed providing you with an overall cohesive and fully entertaining listen that you don’t want to peel yourself away from. Much sooner rather than later these tracks will be stuck in your head never to come out. The New Batch is packed to the bursting point with track after track of twisted, perverse, raunchy and incredibly addictive tunes that really is difficult to stop listening to.

The New Batch has just about everything that you could want. Death metal, grind, punk, horror flick odes, tongue in cheek song titles, solid musicianship, gritty and bloodied vocals and even more. This is an all around solid record with sixteen total well crafted and executed tracks providing you with an ultimately heavy and entertaining listen.
