"Coming up from Cambridgeshire, intense quartet The Projectionist are preparing to release their second EP ‘Now It’s Time To Carve The Pigs’ and as the cover suggests, it’s a snarling beast of a CD. Sounding like a band who’ve mixed discordant punk, hardcore, grind and metal in a cement mixer and spat out the results in all directions, this is hyper, angry music, the sound of a band jumping on your desk, grabbing you by the throat and demanding your attention.
Right from the opener ‘Kreed Kafer’, The Projectionist immediately hit with relentless riffs and intense drumming, and do not let up for a second. There are no melodic passages or pseudo-surprise ‘clean’ choruses; this is a tight, finely-tuned attack from four competent musicians who seemly aren’t interested in bandwagons or conforming to a trend. Occasionally sounding like a heavier Refused meets Cancer Bats, this is ideal for fans of heavy, high-energy, uncompromising music, regardless of your favourite subgenre.
This is not casual background music. This is violence in aural form, and it comes highly recommended.”
"The pick of the EP bunch this month, however is The Projectionist’s NITTCTP, in which the Cambridgeshire four piece spit out fiery aggression through every spiteful note. That’s right - no fucking clean vocals on choruses, no breakdowns, nothing at all to please the ‘kids’. It’s just a dirty, vengeful mix of metal, grind and the darkest hardcore that bruises from start to end. You hear that, every other band that have formed in the last couple of years? That’s how you do it. 8/10"
Now Its Time To Carve The Pigs isThe Projectionist‘s debut monster release that has some terrifyingly disturbing instrumental attacks, which back these really violent cutthroat vocals.
The guys have gone above and beyond to get their voices heard on this one. Whilst the EP is that of a hardcore punk nature I cant help but adore the slight melodic rock sections that appear for brief moments in songs like Carve the Pigs before the chaotic insanity begins again, it’s a really nice twist the guys have added to break up the tones and leaving for a certain unexpectedness to the EP and the bands style.
This ground-breaking debut is not to be taken lightly, these guys have attacked loud and proud with this one a great sign of things to come.
‘Now It’s Time To Carve The Pigs’ due out on October 14th via High On Pritstick Records.”
