Manchester’s The Hyena Kill have returned with a new single called ‘Piece of Hell’. It’s their first taste of new music since 2021’s ‘A Disconnect’. The track itself is a ferocious and emotive number, detailing the feeling of letting go of that poisonous person in your life.
On ‘Piece of Hell’, The Hyena Kill vocalist/guitarist Steven Dobb commented “Our new single ‘Piece Of Hell’ is taken from our forthcoming new album. It’s such an aggressive tune and feels like a return to our roots but gives nothing away as to the overall sound of the record. We’ve been playing it live for a while now and it’s as cathartic as it gets when we start ripping. It’s even got a shredding solo which is a first for The Hyena Kill.”
‘Piece of Hell’s accompanying video is equally chaotic and was created by Ash Tubb, lead singer and guitarist in Sugar Horse. Even though the finished visual was an accident. “It’s just us jamming in our grubby rehearsal room subjected to Ash’s absolutely mental visuals. According to him (Ash), he made a mistake and everything got layered all at once creating this trippy effect,” explained Dobb. “To paraphrase the Lord Bob Ross, I love happy accidents like that. Can’t thank him enough for helping us out.”
It’s the first track to be released from their forthcoming third album. According to the band’s label, APF Records, it will be called ‘The Process’ and should be released next year. Its creation had been delayed due to a series of personal tragedies, however after putting on the brakes, it allowed the trio to have a new fresh perspective, motivating them to finish the record.
