STEAK NUMBER EIGHT
|Künstler||Steak Number Eight|
Surfacing for the first time in 2008 (remember: Steak Number Eight won Humo’s Rockrally with the average age of 15), crushing windows with their bare hands and storming stages all over the country! Steak Number Eight soon turned into a genuine metal offensive. By touring intensively the band was soon known for its crushing live reputation and it wouldn’t take too long for them to record their first full length: ‘All is Chaos’ (2010).
Produced by Mario Goossens (Triggerfinger / Black Box Revelation) and mixed by Matt Bayles (Isis, Mastodon), ‘All Is Chaos’ hit stores in February 2011 and received raving reviews in both national and international press. The album was sealed on 45.000 copies with Metal Hammer, UK’s leading metal-magazine, better known as The Heavy Metal Bible.
Meanwhile, 2 years and 3 UK tours further down the line, Steak Number Eight have evolved into a band that can make a difference and leave behind their tracks of musical mayhem. The audience licks their wounds. Performances at Graspop Metal Meeting, Dour Festival and Pukkelpop not only turned Steak Number Eight into an experienced, well-oiled touring machine ... the band also recorded 11 smashing new tracks for the long awaited successor of ‘All is Chaos’.
On the new album ‘The Hutch’, Steak Number Eight digs deeper than ever before, finding a perfect balance between devastating guitars and a hopeful sense of melody. With a worldwide release on Norwegian label ‘Indie Records’ (Cult of Luna, Kvelertak), Steak Number Eight can finally measure themselves with their big brothers of Isis, Mastodon, Deftones, Tool and Neurosis.
The trail of destruction starts with the speakers!
‘The Hutch’ was produced by Reinhard Vanbergen (The Hickey Underworld, Drums Are For Parades) and mixed by Matt Bayles. Howie Weinberg (Deftones, Faith no More, Pantera, Ween, ...) signed for the mastering credits.
