Vesicarum are a visceral five-piece death metal band from Kent, UK. Bursting at
the seams with brutal energy - featuring frantic, technical riffing; topped off
with frontman Glynn Neve’s signature vocal style.
The band was originally created in 2016 as a solo project by Glynn, growing in
early 2018 to include guitarists Martin Shipton and James Thompson, and
drummer Donal McGee.
The name, ‘Vesicarum’ - meaning ‘to fester’, in Latin is an ode to the sinister
nature of the band’s music and lyrical content. Featuring darker subjects
including serial killers and The Ankou (The Graveyard Watcher), the central
lyrical theme is hatred - the band describe their music as “an adrenaline rush
that is a great escape from the stresses and strains of life.”
After joining forces with One Eyed Toad Records in late 2019, the band went
on to release their highly successful debut EP ‘Reign Of Terror’ in the first half
of 2020. Lead single ‘The Sick And The Depraved’ achieved worldwide airplay; while
the EP itself received widespread attention, notably featuring in Zero
With bassist Mark Willson bolstering the band’s roster; Vesicarum are poised
to return to the studio for more sonic mayhem.
