Industrial Metal Band OUR LAST ENEMY to Release Post-Apocalyptic Concept Album ‘Pariah' on March 11, 2014 

Pariah' Produced by Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory) // Featuring Bryce 'Bizz' Bernius (Genitorturers)

It would be almost too easy to classify Australia’sOUR LAST ENEMY as an “industrial metal band.” While that’s an accurate description of the band, it’s oversimplified, since OUR LAST ENEMY are so much more than the sum of their base parts. OUR LAST ENEMY make music that’s akin to a soundtrack or mix tape designed for surviving and navigating an apocalyptic wasteland.

OUR LAST ENEMY steps into the spotlight and offers their brand new album Pariah as the aforementioned element, scheduled to hit stores on March 11, 2014 via Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, Bobaflex, A Breach of Silence). For this album, OUR LAST ENEMYrelocated to Los Angeles, CA to record withChristian Olde Wolbers, formerly of Fear Factory, a like-minded, kindred spirit. Pariahwas recorded at Temple studios, once owned by members of Fleetwood Mac and currently co-owned by Cypress Hill's B-Real andRaymond Herrera of Fear Factory fame.

You can pre-order Pariah now via this link: http://smarturl.it/qnsf9c. More pre-order options are coming soon.

Check out the impressive new music video for the band’s first single, ’10,000 Headless Horses’, here:http://youtu.be/IZoCWkrdO7E. The video was directed by The Blackley Brothers (Her Name is Murder Productions) and was filmed in Sydney, Australia.

Thematically, Pariah has a loose concept threaded throughout. “The Pariah” is this unlucky person who seems to be continually reborn at the center of times crisis or upheaval, whether they are there as witness or catalyst. “The Pariah” appears multiple times throughout the record and some of the tracks are penned from his point of view or from the perspective of those around him.

Although beginning in 2006, the band has evolved to their current line-up of Oliver (vocals), Jeff (keys/samples), Matt (bass), Bizz (guitars) and Zot (drums). Bizz was once a member of Genitorturers, a visual metal band that also featured Morbid Angel’s David Vincent; he relocated Down Under to join OUR LAST ENEMY.

OUR LAST ENEMY’s name itself is apocalyptic in nature, its origin rooted in a Biblical quote: “Until the day when we meet our last enemy, death itself…” But as is the case with all elements of the band, there is a deeper, more complex meaning beyond that which you see on the surface, since the pulling of the death card in tarot symbolizes rebirth. “It represents the duality of life and death,” the band said about its name. “It can mean death itself, which can be a negative thing, and also the symbolism of rebirth, which is positive. It also represents the inevitability of life —that it will end— which reminds you to make the most of it before you face your last enemy.”

The connective tissue of OUR LAST ENEMY is the desire to create balls-to-the-floor metal cross-pollinated with harsh, electronic sounds, held together by good songwriting. There is no “metal for the sake of being metal” on the record. “For Our Last Enemy, it’s not just about writing heavy riffs, horror-like synths, mad samples, technical drum parts and dark lyrics, although these elements are a big part of our sound,” the band said. “We spend a lot of time arranging the music. We pay close attention to detail when we write, because we want to write music that could convey a message or vibe accurately, even if we didn’t include lyrics or vocals. So by the time vocals are added to the equation, the music will transport you to a different world, sort of like a movie does with it’s background music and dialogue. But the world we’ll take you to is a world in ruins.” The band furthered, “We have, in some way, tried to meld together the harsh, dark elements of industrial music with the hard hitting slam of metal. We often try to incorporate soundscapes or cinematic elements as well to add atmosphere… while still remaining super heavy.”

Through the years, OUR LAST ENEMY has enjoyed their last album Fallen Empires going #1 on the iTunes Metal Chart in their native country, while their song ‘10,000 Headless Horses’ was featured in the Rock Band video game. They’ve played support gigs for the likes of Static-X, Dope, Fozzy, Mnemic, Hanzeul Und Gretyl and more.

As stated previously, it would be convenient to call OUR LAST ENEMY ”industrially-influenced metal,” but OUR LAST ENEMYstands out, thanks to complex songwriting. They don’t simply put one or two riffs under a drum loop. That would be too easy. And nothing about OUR LAST ENEMY is easy or simple. They carefully craft the type of hard rock that can cause tectonic plates to shift, while maintaining an artful bend. They also like to rip your head clean off your neck.

That’s not easy to do, but nothing worth creating or listening to in life is easy. 

OUR LAST ENEMY is:

Oliver Fogwell (vocals), Matt Heywood (bass/vocals), Jeff Ritchie (keys/samples), Bryce ‘Bizz’ Bernius (guitar) and Zot Cillia (drums)

WATCH: "Devour the Sun" by Our Last Enemy

WATCH: “Devour the Sun” by @ourlastenemy - we can’t lie, it scared us a little

We have to admit here at 16 Clefs that for this video we had to watch it twice. Once with our eyes partially covered because we were kind of creeped out by the video Sydney’s Our Last Enemy made for their single “Devour the Sun” and then once all the way through with eyes uncovered.

There was nothing too graphic or gory or over the top, but there was just enough to make us shiver with goosebumps.…
