STA is now Ten Years Old

LaFaro Album News

We didn't have to wait long for the follow up to last years devastatingly heavy self-titled debut. LaFaro's new album is done, dusted and ominously titled 'Easy Meat'. The LP will be out at the back end of the summer, preceded by a new single and UK/Ireland tour.

One of the best parts of the job is getting to hear a new album by one of our artists first, but I'll admit I was nervous when I put LaFaro's new record in the stereo, I had no idea what was going to happen next.

What happened next could well be the band's defining moment.

Gone is the echo of grunge replaced with metal's electric chair. Gone is scuzz, replaced with razor wire.

LaFaro have transplanted their band's music into a black, hellish and apocalyptic space. Part meditation on Northern Ireland, part metal concept album 'Easy Meat' is dense, troubling and thorougly kick ass affair.

These are riffs and beats to die for ladies and gentlemen and you won't have long to wait.
