Pupil Slicer

Main venue, April 26th, Doors: 7:30pm

This time three years ago, Pupil Slicer were preparing for the release of their debut album, Mirrors, with zero expectations of where it could take them. The breakneck speed with which Pupil Slicer was not only accepted but celebrated by the metal scene – both at home and abroad – took the band by surprise. To call it a baptism of fire may seem extreme, but intense periods of band activity were interspersed with moments of deep reflection and a requirement to readjust.

As 2023 started to unfold, it was a more mature, more considered version of Pupil Slicer that stands before us brandishing their sophomore album: Blossom. For anyone concerned that this is short-hand for having lost its chaotic edge, never fear – it remains very much intact. Blossom is a hard science fiction/cosmic horror rock opera concept album with central themes of abject despair, reincarnation, and a fascination with hell.
