Today HEAVY is proud to release a smashing new song and video clip called “Tongue Hung Pinata” by Blunt Shovel.
Blunt Shovel are a ‘new’ old school metal institution featuring members of legendary Australian metal bands, forming to bring a fresh sound and approach to a style they are well accustomed to. Bringing a tongue in cheek approach to their lyrical content, the band has complete disregard for what is considered “hip and happening” in the larger metal music “scene”. Blunt Shovel take their musical cues from the classics of the genre, tapping into the aggression and intensity of bands like Bloodbath, Carcass and Revocation. Laying on the super heavy hooks and solid metal grooves thick, if you’re a fan of anything death metal, old or new, then you know where the bodies are buried.
Since making their first live appearance in 2014, Blunt Shovel has shared the stage with some of Australia’s finest metal acts, including Blood Duster, Hadal Maw, AMDBL, I Exist and Dreadnaught – to name a few. Blunt Shovel features members with a solid musical pedigree, with members serving time in Truth Corroded, The Ocularis Infernum, Abrasion and Bowel Mouth.
