Nearing the eve of the release of their long-awaited debut album, Culling Culture, fast-rising UK based unit VEXED once again showcases the brutality they’re made of.

VEXED goes all out on absolutely every single track featured on their debut release, Culling Culture, out this Friday, May 21 via Napalm Records! 

gaslight
/ˈɡaslʌɪt/
verb
gerund or present participle: gaslighting
1. manipulate (someone) by psychological means into doubting their own sanity.

Being a victim of gaslighting is like mental torture. Losing touch with reality, yourself, your friends and family is all the control they want.
“Fake” is a brutally heavy and unforgiving track that is dedicated to all Gaslighters out there. We see you. You have been warned.
-VEXED-

Facing very personal experiences, Culling Culture is a tribute to hate, betrayal and anger, whilst also reflecting post-modern society with strikingly honest songwriting and heavy groove. Moreover, for as confident as they are musically, VEXED is as poignant lyrically.

Unrelenting lead vocalist Megan Targett’s vicious vocal assault blending venomously low growls, soaring cleans and razor-sharp rap-like deliveries (see “Fake” and “Weaponise”) is backed by the pure technical proficiency of bandmates Willem Mason-Geraghty (drums), Jay Bacon (guitar) and Al Harper (bass). The warning instrumental “Ignorant” prefaces the record’s menacing atmosphere and provides a flawless basis for smashing wakeup call “Hideous” and fiery, threatening tracks “Fake” and “Narcissist”. Ghostly “Aurora” and disrespectfully heavy album-closer “Lazarus” showcase Targett’s multi-faceted clean vocal delivery while clashing otherworldly auras with resonating, melodic rhythms. “Epiphany” blends both, offering a bold message of moving past self-loathing, while superciliously weighty offering “Weaponise” seethes between violent hatred and ambient darkness.
