Artist Profile

Filth

Shelby, North Carolina
USA

It isn't very often in today's heavy music scene that the listener can dive right into a band knowing exactly what they're in for. With names that are designed to grab the listener's interest--but often music that fails to do the same--checking out new bands is a gamble, or, was a gamble. With North Carolina's latest addition to the downtempo deathcore scene, Filth give the listener a picture-perfect premonition of their sound before they can even press play. Murkier than a tar pit and harsher than a jackhammer burying into the listener's ears, this sinister Shelby quartet are here for one thing, and one thing only: to inflict the most damage to the listener in the shortest amount of time possible, and they do it with unbelievable efficacy. Born in 2015 as a side project for guitarist David Gantt, bassist Nathan Pittman and vocalist Dustin Mitchell's main band, InVoker, Filth quickly took on a life of its own, with the purpose of spreading soul-smothering heaviness to the heads of heavy music enthusiast around the country. Erupting out of sheer nothingness with the release of their debut EP, Tales from the Gutter, Filth began like a ball of mud rolling down a steep hill of trash and grime--picking up mass and speed with each passing second. The group played as regional support for heavy music's heaviest hitters before embarking on a co-headlining nationwide tour with InVoker and Vessels, titled the "Tune Down for What? Tour." With one immensely successful stretch of live performances under their belt, and a critically acclaimed display of hyper-dissonant heaviness in the form of their debut EP to match, in fall of 2015, the band took off on their second co-headlining and EP support tour with U.S. Heavyweight legends A Legacy Unwritten--titled "Tales from the Guttour." Meeting with continued success in every venture, the band's intense work ethic and overwhelmingly aggressive style of ultra-heavy deathcore earned them a spot on True Initiative Management's roster--one already packed with enormous talent. With most of 2015 in the rear view mirror, and a wide-open 2016 ahead of them, this Filthy quartet are poised to continue their dominion over the world of downtempo deathcore, be it with tours, terrifying new tunes or both. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears pressed to the ground--because before you know it, both will be flooded with Filth.
