HUSK are a groove-laden machine of infectious riffs and blistering technical savagery. Formed in 2012, the Wolverhampton four piece have quickly grown in popularity, with the mantra to sonically devastate the foundations of each venue they unleash their unique death-grooves upon. After winning the Wolverhampton Battle of the Bands in 2014, they moved on to play several major support slots including Turisas, Sylosis and Soulfly on their UK tour dates at the Slade Rooms.
As part of their support slot with Heart of a Coward in 2015, the band released their highly anticipated EP, ‘Plague Of Man’. Heavily inspired by the likes of Gojira, Lamb of God, and Unearth, HUSK mix brutal guitar hooks, with an uncompromising live show to be reckoned with.
Fast forward to 2016, Husk have successfully won the Wolverhampton Metal To The Masses competition and will now be performing on the Hobgoblin sponsored New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2016.

What the press say:
'Intentionally hard to pigeonhole. There are many elements taken from the groove of Pantera, but then the slappy bass and death metal antics come into play.' - Metal Hammer/Team Rock- www.teamrock.com
'A trademark sound that knocks you off your feet, especially live... Plague of Man’ carries with it a suitcase of emotion, passion, groove, aggression, style, power and immense audio presence' - Rob WK - midlandsmetalheads.com
'Plague Of Man” is a wonderfully coherent piece of work... a glorious piece of violence... which begins like an explosion and gets better from there.' - Andy Thorley - maximumvolumemusic.com
'Think Carcass but with a more progressive attitude and a huge Sepultura/Soulfly-esque groove mixed with just a touch of System of a Down‘s eccentricity and you’re getting somewhere in the right ball park... It’s an impressive set of death/groove metal tunes that deserve to be played in metal clubs everywhere' - Chris Ward - thisisnotascene.com
'Dark metal best describes Husk. Classic guitar work topped by ultra-brutal vocals produce the Husk sound...They deliver dark thrash metal of epic proportions.' - Stephen Turner - music224.com
