Random Band of the Week - William English

Way back in 2011, I posted some short live "Band of the week" features, with the last one being on the 30/12/11. I recently decided too bring this series back, to help break up the review posts but also to spread the word about random bands that I've come across. Truth be told, there are hundreds, if not thousands of bands out there across the metal stratosphere that people just don't know about, so hopefully those that I do talk about will end up reaching some new ears.
I posted about starting this series on Facebook a couple of weeks ago and one band responded straight away. As first posts go, this one isn't so random, but what the hey!

Norfolk sludgers William English aren't new to This Noise Is Ours. I featured them back in July 2012, when  I reviewed their demo. You can read it here.

Anyway, it seems these guys are stepping it up. They've integrated more hardcore influences into their dirty sludge and have released two un-mastered tracks on the t'internet, which will appear on an album soon.

As well as recording new material, these guys have filmed a video for the track "Captain Tugboat", which features a band photo that will strike fear into any parent!

As well as all of this, they're going to be playing with the mighty Moloch, as well as Essex hardcore/grind act Chestburster and fellow Essex newcomers Jotnarr in Colchester on August 30th. You have been warned!

So, there you have it. The first "Random Band of the Week" post and hopefully there's enough here to wet your appetite and to make you want to further explore this bunch of rabid sludge nuts!
