Death Pill, are an all-female hardcore punk power trio of considerable muscle, combining metalcore, punk rock and (like labelmates 'Shooting Daggers') oodles of 'Riot Grrl' vibe.

It's significant how many female punk bands are using the stance and attitude of the 'Riot Grrl' movement as a touchstone for what they are about, but it doesn't end there.

From the classic punk of Black Flag, The Distillers and Circle Jerks, to modern outfits like Axe Rash and the thrash metal of Nervosa and Exodus, there's a nod to all of this in Death Pill's visceral sound.

Full on and fully formed on their self-titled debut album. That aside, what makes this release even more pertinent for us, and the fact that it is happening at all, is that Mariana, Anastasiya and Nataliya are from the Ukraine, who's troubles are well known to all of course.

Hard times, but right now there is a real chance to change lives for the better, the victory is still undoubted.

So there is hope for sure, and as this album amply demonstrates, plenty of fighting spirit.

It's a killer debut. However, producing a 'killer record' under such extraordinary circumstances was a challenge too.

Tracking started during Covid and was completed in late 2021, only three tracks were mixed before the war hit.

However the band and their production team were able to somehow continue and finished everything including the artwork in 5 months whilst the Russian invasion rolled on.

A testament to their drive and single mindedness. Although things are uncertain, the band is still going strong, still together.

Death Pill is set for release on the 24th February 2023, perhaps fittingly a year to the day that Russia invaded Ukraine.

'Death Pill' will be released on limited edition white with red splatter vinyl housed in a full colour single sleeve with a printed lyric inner.

Full download included. There will also be a limited CD version in a 4 panel digipack with a 12 page lyric booklet.
