Charged with thunderous energy, Philly’s Atomic Cretins came into existence in 2016. Giving nod to the ‘80s speed/thrash metal, black metal and d-beat, the quartet gave birth to two EP releases consecutively in 2017 and 2018. Additionally, the cretins have routinely kept wreaking havoc like a powerful tornado on the local venues.
The recent lineup change has turned their fierce sonic outing to a different route where the thrash and black metal reign predominantly, and this moderate transformation is noticeable in the forthcoming EP, titled Spiritual Cancer. Apart from highlighting the band’s advocacy of antireligion, antigovernment and pro self-reliance, the five-song EP strides across the satanic and horror arenas as well.
Spiritual Cancer arrives October 26th via Suicide Bong Tapes on cassette format. A release show will take place at Century Bar, Philadelphia on the same day.
