One of the UK’s most exciting rising alt-metal talents VEXED have just signed an official worldwide record deal with premium Austrian rock and metal label Napalm Records.
The crushing Hertfordshire foursome was born in March 2019, and since then the band has been pursuing its desire for heavy groove, unfiltered lyricism and technical proficiency. While other bands dwell on flattery, VEXED bundle a mixture of honest hatred and apt social criticism in their lyrics, and don’t mince words for a moment.
VEXED have already dropped two one-off singles independently, including “Elite” featuring Thy Art is Murder vocalist CJ McMahon, which has garnered over 500k cross-platform streams as of now. Both tracks highlight VEXED’s potent combination of aggressive groove mixed with ominous threads of progressive atmosphere, like none of their kind. Due to the worldwide pandemic, the band had to cancel their planned tour with Whitechapel and a scheduled appearance at Bloodstock Festival, but this did not stop them from continuing to push their sonic strength.
