BAND FEAURES IGGOR CAVALERA
DEBUT ALBUM I OUT VIA CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES ON OCTOBER 25
Petbrick — the duo comprising Wayne Adams (Big Lad/Death Pedals/Johnny Broke) and Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Soulwax/Mixhell) — have arrived at an audial destination whereby electronic experimentation, hardcore attitude, dystopian dread and in-the-red dementia collide and collude to form a uniquely invigorating assault, custom fit for an accelerated age. This debut explores fresh lunacy anew whereby both members’ past experience — Wayne in a variety of musical guises ranging from punk to breakcore and gabba, and Iggor in a planet-straddling metal colossus whose questing spirit played a crucial role in the music’s evolution – are both profitably employed and left obsolete by a resolutely genre-free onslaught whose spirit remains firmly in the here and now.
Petbrick have just premiered the incendiary, Dante Vescio-directed video for “Coming” at Metal Injection. The song also features vocals from Laima Leyton, who is one-half of the techno x dance outfit Mixhell.

“I’ve always had a fascination with art being made at places out of the European/USA market,” said Cavalera. “From bands to one of my favorite movie directors Jose Mojica Marins aka Coffin Joe. When I was contacted by Dante Vescio, that was one of the first things that came to my mind. I love the idea of a video that can be as strong as the music, especially coming from a country like Brazil, which is going through so much turmoil. The photography beautifully contrasts with the disturbing backgrounds.”
“When I heard ‘Coming,’ my first reaction was to try and come up with a simple narrative that reinforced the song’s powerful and moody feminine presence,” said Vescio, a multi-award winning director, writer, producer and editor from São Paulo, Brazil, whose works have been shown in numerous film festivals around the world. “The image of a witch subduing a grotesque male character (The Pig) and finishing him off came to mind. I thought it was a good opportunity to give a character with ‘Naz’’ vibes a taste of his own medicine. The fact that Petbrick’s logo reads ‘Noise Against Nazi Scum’ was also pretty encouraging. I decided to shoot the whole thing in slow-motion because I thought it would enhance the song’s brutal elegance. I think there’s enough music videos with breakneck speed and editing to go around. It felt right to go the other way and shoot something that you can actually look at for a while, creating the sensory experience with the images, not just the speed of the cuts.”
The band previously premiered “Radiation Facial” over at Kerrang! The song features guest vocals by Dylan Walker of Full of Hell. Watch it here.
The band also shared the track “Horse,” which premiered via The Quietus. Listen here and here.
Petbrick will release I on October 25 via Closed Casket Activities in the U.S. It will be released in the rest of the world by Rocket Recordings. Pre-order the album here.
