BIOGRAPHY

Biography English:

The Petulant is a new danish thrash metal band from Copenhagen. Formed in 2013 by the brothers Lukas and Kraen Meier, both from the old danish band Sacrificial. After the inital rehearsals they were joined by Lars Ottesen who used to play bass in Mental Decay back in the late eighties, and Asbjørn Steffensen from Crocell and Mordax on vocals, together with Mads Bertam, also from Mordax on guitar.

In march 2014 the band recorded 4 songs at the danish recording studio Fastbeat. These songs repressent the beginning of a band inspired by the bay area thrash scene of the eighties and nineties, but who also trie to bring a breath of fresh air to the music. The band wants to play thrash metal, but it does not want to be confined in the creative proces of writing songs. So you might say that the style of The Petulant is a work in progess. While preparing for shows the band is also writing new material for future releases, it ́ll be fast and heavy, no compromise!
The band had their debut gig supporting Missery Index at Pumpehuset in Copenhagen on the 27th of July 2014, and is as of now ready to take the stage anytime,anywhere!

Biografi Dansk:

The Petulant blev dannet i 2013, da brødrene Lukas og Kræn Meier, begge med en fortid i det gamle band Sacrificial, begyndte at spille sammen igen. Herefter tilsluttede Lars Ottesen fra det hedengangne Mental Decay sig bandet, samt Asbjørn Steffensen fra Mordax og Crocell og Mads Bertram Højland Gath fra mordax.

Det er erfarne kræfter fra det danske metalmiljø der her har slået hovederne sammen, for at skrive nye kapitler i den danske metalhistorie.
I marts 2014 gik bandet i fastbeat studiet og optog 4 numre der præsenterer bandets stil, der kan betegnes som aggressiv thrash, men med indslag fra flere andre genrer. Hovedinspirationerne kommer fra Bay area scenen fra firserne og halvfemserne, men man prøver at give numrene lidt kant, samt at skue ud over den lidt stramme genreopdeling i moderne metal. Udover disse 4 numre har bandet allerede et livesæt klar- og der skrives på højtryk for at føje flere lag til bandets dynamiske stil.

Der arbejdes i øjeblikket på at få sat koncerter op rundt omkring i landet for at vise publikum hvad bandet kan- og står for.
