Electro Quarterstaff "Gretzky" out 06.10.24

Electro Quarterstaff - Gretzky

The debut full length from Winnipeg's ELCTRO QUARTERSTAFF has finally arrived, and it will undoubtedly go down in history as on one of the greatest instrumental metal albums ever. Gretzky strives to marry the insectoid riffing of modern technical death metal with mutant starfish rhythms that swell and contract like reptilian break-dancing on a hijacked pirate cruise ship. Having no patience for a vocalist, these self-proclaimed titans of progressive instrumental thrash metal dedicate themselves to the exploration and deconstruction of harmonious, romantic melody, slippery squid stringwork, and swashbuckling grooves. Inspired by the sprawling rhythmic tension of early Metallica and the nimble-witted punchline hijinx of Lethargy and Ripping Corpse, Gretzky embodies the sound of three riff assassins embarking on an intergalactic adventure showered with bacon sizzling blastbeats, latin hulahoop shake-downs, and a seemingly never-ending supply of supersonic titanium chestnut rhythms. A total lunar eclipse of snake-charming riffs from the planet's mightiest triple-axe quartet.

Due to hit stores October 24th on Willowtip Records.

Check our myspace page in the near future for an online store to order your copy of Gretzky along with 2 different new t-shirt designs.
