Formed in 2016 with the goal of creating contemptuous heavy metal in the vein of their influences and a mutual disgust for the safety of modern metal, Milwaukee’s Prezir has released its aptly titled debut EP ”Contempt”.
Featuring guitarist/bassist Rory Heikkila (Shroud of Despondency), vocalist/lyricist Luka Djordjevic (Khazaddum), and drummer Brian Serzynski (Pigs Blood), ”Contempt” is an iniquitous and undeniably feral blend of Death, Black, and Thrash Metal with influences inclusive of early Emperor, early Enslaved, Grand Belial’s Key, Arghoslent, Morbid Angel, Deicide, and Destroyer 666.
Drums on ”Contempt” were tracked by Dan Klein at Iron Hand Audio. Everything else as recorded and produced by the band in 2017. Mixing by Rory Heikkila.
