Bio

Newcastle metal band Where the Devil is back with new single and video, 'Moments of Tangency'.
The band enjoyed a great response to first single, 'Beast': Newcastle Live calling it “...an unmitigated head banger...” - Triple J Unearthed’s Dave Ruby Howe described it as though: “...We’re the animal clinging on for dear life as Where the Devil approaches its prey” and Metal Sydney Metal said it was, ”...one of the best metal tracks I’ve heard this year”.
‘Beast’ scored air-play on Triple M's Downunder and Triple J's The Racket, to name a few. It even started the New Year with a Top 10 spot on Newcastle's Hottest 100 of 2020.
Now, 'Moments of Tangency' sees the band ramp up the aggression and the groove for round two.
Mixing elements of Pantera, Fear Factory, Soulfly and even a little Periphery into the mix, 'Moments...' takes the listener on bruising journey of betrayal, hatred, self-loathing and spiralling inner turmoil. Broken up by moments of emotional clarity, singer Ben Pennifold says it's "ultimately holding onto the bile and watching everything burn with a huge, twisted, fucking smile".
COVID-19 may have put the brakes on the band's live performance debut in 2020, but Where the Devil is itching to get on stage and unleash its muscular riffage to live audiences. In the meantime, the band will continue to release singles on a regular basis, with next single, 'Misery' hitting streaming services on May 21; showcasing Where the Devil's slightly more accessible side.

This is like a stuck boar foraging for safehaven in the scrub. We're the animal clinging on for dear life as Where The Devil approaches its prey.
