Escuela Grind Share “Ball And Chain” Video From Upcoming “Ddeeaatthhmmeettaall” EP


Escuela Grind will be putting out a new EP titled “Ddeeaatthhmmeettaall” on January 12th through MNRK Heavy. That four-song affair will find the grind/powerviolence outfit joined by one of their frequent tourmates, Napalm Death vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway. He will appear on the track “Meat Magnet“. Fan-filmed live footage of the that song being performed live this past summer without Greenway can be found below.

Additionally, the EP’s opening track, “Ball And Chain“, is now available, complete with an official music video directed by Michael Jari Davidson (Alice In Chains). Footage for that clip was captured amid a live show in Mexico City. Recording sessions for this new EP took place under producer Will Killingsworth, with Converge‘s Kurt Ballou mixing it.

Vocalist Katerina Economou commented:

“‘DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL;’ is the third installment of our EP series where we dive into the genres that most influence this band. Finishing this trilogy has been years in the works. We are so excited to release these songs as they are perhaps the best reflection of our live performance. The stage has honed these hectic songs to perfection.

Originally we were going to have three songs on this EP, but we wanted to create another track that had a huge buildup. This eventually developed into this brutal song, ‘Ball and Chain‘, that marks the point in our live shows where we have a wall of death every night. Lyrically, it references death metal tropes of murder and revenge, but with a decidedly feminine angle.”

The aforementioned EP series began in 2020 with “Ppoowweerrvviioolleennccee” and continued with “Ggrriinnddccoorree“.
