From The Press Release
Tampa’s PSYKOTRIBE will release their debut LP The Devil’s Complex, in stores and digital outlets February 14th through EMP LABEL GROUP. Recorded at MASTERSOUND STUDIOS in Tampa, and Produced by Thom Hazaert and Preston DiCarlo, COMPLEX showcases the band’s hard-hitting extreme Metal style, as dual vocalists Dana Darkly and Jakob Sin, guitarists Jamez “Madness” Harrison, John Williams, and Chris Lewis, bassist Chad Zielesch, and drummer Adam Zielesch, deftly weave, (or brutally stomp) their way through finely crafted tapestries of Black and Death Metal, classic Thrash, and even Hard Rock, as showcased on the single “End it”, mixed by Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth), and featuring bass by Megadeth’s David Ellefson, which also appeared on the second disc of Ellefson’s SLEEPING GIANTS release.
A longtime underground favorite in and beyond their native Florida, Psykotribe recently completed a European tour in support of The Devil’s Complex supporting Six Feet Under, and a string of US dates with underground thrash favorites master. The band has also shared stages with the likes of Deicide, Dying Fetus, Morbid Angel, The Faceless, Combichrist, Cradle of Filth, Mushroomhead, Doll Skin, Goatwhore, The Agonist, Soilwork, Doyle, Mortiis, Thy Art is Murder, Origin, and many more.
Psykotribe first came to the attention of EMP LABEL GROUP, winning their EMP UNDERGROUND VOL. 1 contest, coming in first place, and securing a spot on the EMP UNDERGROUND VOL. 1 compilation. The band later was a finalize in COMBAT Band tbo Band Combat, securing a spot on their rebooted COMBAT BULLETS, Vol 1.0, which got the interest of EMP/COMBAT’s Thom Hazaert, who agreed to co-produce their debut.
Says Hazaert, “Psykotribe were friends first. I watched how hard they worked, and they just absolutely owned Florida. Any band that came through, they were the band they’d put on the show to make sure they had a turnout. And when we did the EMP UNDERGROUND competition, and later the COMBAT BULLETS, Psykotribe, out of everybody, always ended up at the top of the list. They had an extremely dedicated fanbase, and work harder than almost anyone I’ve ever seen. So, I offered to co-produce the record, and then we got David to play on it, and it truly became a dysfunctional family affair.”
Psykotribe will join The Convalescence for select dates on their upcoming tour with Casket Robbery, Filth and Blood of Angels, and headline their own PSYKO-FEST 2020, on March 7th at the Brass Mug in Tampa.
