Cape Town, South Africa: a new force rising on the local circuit takes shape with Nethercyst as today the metal band releases their first single featuring new vocalist Paul Rahilly on ‘Devolution’. Paul stepped in this year to replace outgoing Ayden Botha and with the current momentum, Nethercyst are talking about the release of their debut EP in February 2017.
“The song has a lot of anger behind it and some hard hitting pieces. Our guitarist Gage recorded the entire song. I’m sure it will fully establish what we will be about.” ~ Paul Rahilly (vocals, Nethercyst)
Paul, formerly vocalist for the disbanded The Impalement Theory and Mora Mortem, let slip that the band is also working of a collaborated music video with another local act which will see the light of day before their EP release. Nethercyst will also be appearing live at this weekend’s 18 Till I Die all-age friendly show hosted by The Unscene, featuring a mix of metal and alternative sounds including Raptorbaby, Strident, and Infanteria to name a few.
