About: “Smarter, stronger and musically tighter than ever, FATALITY is now ready to unleash their sophomore album ‘Psychonaut’, a darker and more mature effort, Fatality bring forth their trademark energy and commitment to drunken mayhem. Tracks like “Thoughts Collide” and “Before The Collapse” delve deep into the sodden minds of their creators, bubbling with the strange alchemy of pop culture. Psychonaut is an exploration of the inner landscape of the mind, where addled thoughts and horror-polluted dreams are held up to musical scrutiny. Monstrous, ambitious, and sardonically funny as ever, FATALITY are taking their unique sound and boundless energy to the next level,” – metal writer Natalie Zina Walschots.

They released their first single ‘Thoughts Collide’

 

Toronto, Canada’s high-energy, modern thrash monsters Fatality have been cranking out wise-cracking, beer-drenched nightmares together since 2003. Known for their wild, riotous live performances and their peerless work ethic, they have been independently booking and promoting their own shows, creating great merch, touring North America, and making some great tunes along the way. Few bands embody the DIY spirit as fully as Fatality consistently do, and no other bands have as much fun working their asses off.

Fatality’s debut effort, Beers From The Grave, was an irreverent, horror-themed album that eschewed seriousness in favour of hard living and good times. Decibel Magazine quipped that, on Beers From The Grave, “solos fly with reckless abandon, the bass is audible and practically so are the beers being cracked open. These guys must have awesome parties.” Hellbound.ca stated that Fatality are “a bundle of crass, explosive, obnoxiously positive energy spewing beer and shrapnel.” Part homage to classic zombie apocalypse horror and part retro-thrash ruckus, Beers From The Grave was an exciting, riotously messy debut.

After supporting Beers From The Grave with East coast Canadian tours, and being invited to share the stage with the likes of Exodus, Municipal Waste, Holy Grail and Razor, the thrash rockers went back to the studio and emerged with still more new material. Three rough-and-tumble, irresistibly catchy singles – “T.F.E.S.”, “Uppercut” and “Hammerfist” – were bundled together as a free EP. While most bands would have simply released a free record and called it a day, Fatality supported their singles with North American tours, winning hearts, destroying livers and splitting eardrums along the way. After those adventures, Fatality went into a period of hiatus. They emerged from this creative cocoon and re-instated their original drummer, Mason LeVon (brother to guitarist and vocalist Spencer LeVon, who replaced longtime friend and skinsman Andrew Suarez), and new musical vision. In early 2012, the band began writing a brand-new full-length, unquestionably their most ambitious project to date.

The band is also going on a epic 3 month USA tour from June 21st – August 28th called the ‘Towards Disastour’ in promotion of ‘Psychonaut’.

 WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

“Zombie Holocaust font strikes again! For once, it doesn’t come with terrible music. Fatality are Canucks who play the “goofy thrash” popular in the late 80’s/ early 90’s. Solos fly with reckless abandon, the bass is audible and practically so are the beers being cracked open. These guys must have awesome parties.” – Decibel Magazine

“Goddamn, I love Fatality. I can’t help it. They’re so much more than a band; they’re a bundle of crass, explosive, obnoxiously positive energy spewing beer and shrapnel all over the Toronto metal scene.” Hellbound.ca

“The tracks are an excellent combination of thrash and beer, but there’s something to be said about their live performances. Drum-offs and beer funnels. Enough said,”  CHRY 105.5FM — The Red Switch

“If both Fatality’s name and their debut LP ‘Beers From The Grave’ doesn’t give it away, we’ll give you a hint -  they’re full-on heavy metal thrashers.” Resonancity.com

“Fatality is a quartet from Toronto known for delivering killer thrash and good times at beer-drenched live shows.” — Explore Music

“I can wholeheartedly say that Fatality were worth both the voyage and the cover price all on their own. They didn’t just put on a show; they threw a party. A few songs into their riotous set, the band members were inviting the crowd on stage to do beer bongs with them. They showered the crowd with both affection and free merch, and despite the fact that it was hot as all hell in the venue , Fatality’s enthusiasm never flagged. They raged through the entire performance, seemingly tireless, never for a moment hinting that they would like to be anywhere but on that stage, performing for that audience. Fatality loved the crowd at The Blue Moon, and the crowd loved them right back.” — HellBound.ca
