OUT NOW! Derision Cult Releases New Single “Slaves Rebuild” Accompanied by New Music Video
Cyberpunk-Infused Metal Band Explores a New Outlaw-Country Inspired Sound in New Release
Derision Cult fuses technological sounds with classic metal, rock, and even outlaw country to evoke an entirely new feeling from their audience with each new release. With inspiration ranging from Die Warzau, Sister Machine Gun, David Bowie, Metallica, Megadeth, Prong, Ministry, White Zombie, and Circle of Dust, Derision Cult utilizes varied influences to create a truly unique sound unlike what is typical of rock and metal bands.
Best described by frontman Dave McAnally himself, Derision Cult forms a “sonic insurgency” through its combination of industrial metal with a tinge of outlaw country. Taking some influence from Producer Sean Payne's band Cyanotic, Derision Cult uses cyberpunk-infused metal to focus their message on resisting media manipulation and corporate greed within their lyrics and against-the-grain sound. Certain aspects of their music showcase aspects of classic rock, thrash metal, all the way to Western country - especially in their new release “Slaves Rebuild”, which will be accompanied by a new music video on October 16, 2023.
Hailing from Chicago, IL, Derision Cult is made up of frontman Dave McAnally and a collective of Glitch Mode artists (Sean Payne, Brad Huston, Jesse Hunt) and includes contributors such as guitarist, songwriter, and record producer Reeves Gabrels (The Cure, David Bowie), Chris Connelly (Ministry, Pigface, Revolting Cocks), and Jim Marcus (Die Warzau, Go Fight!). Their first album "Mercenary Notes Pt 1,” has been described by fans as “a bold sonic rebellion unmasking corporate distortion.” Their new release “Slaves Rebuild” promises to give fans what they know and love - with a new twist and style they have yet to hear from the group
