Product Description

Heavily inspired by the aesthetics and ethos of bikesploitation movies
such as The Wild Angels, Werewolves on Wheels and Psychomania,
The Death Wheelers seek to glorify this unsung era of movie making
through their sordid sounds. Taking musical cues from rock’s greats
such as Davie Allan, The Cramps, Motörhead, The Stooges and
Grand Funk Railroad, the Death Wheelers perpetrate the tradition of
heaviness by making zero compromises when it comes to laying down
the groove. Through their bare bone, stripped down, jammy approach of
their very own brand of sleaze n’ roll, this instrumental Canadian quartet
pushes the listeners to their deepest, filthiest carnal/sexual desires.
I Tread On Your Grave is more than just an album — it’s devised to
serve like the soundtrack to a wild B-movie in your mind, following this
truly awesome plot synopsis:
Decimated in 1972 by local authorities, all members of The Death
Wheelers, a notorious motorcycle club, have been buried at the Surrey
cemetery. But the time has come and they have risen for their last ride.
They’re back from the grave and they’re hungry for blood! Nothing can
stop this gang of living dead from recruiting new members as they travel
coast to coast to find the filthiest, nastiest, trashiest individuals to join
their ranks. Their goal, assemble a legion of 13
“discycles” (disciples+cycles) to seek revenge on the pigs that
dismantled the club and send them to their graves. The cycle of
violence continues…
Yes, please! Their debut LP, a sonic desecration dedicated to the dead,
is an ode to the earlier days of rock ’n’ roll when lust and danger were
an integral part of the scene and culture. This violent offering of pure
aural aggression, recorded full band with no bells and whistles or studio
trickery, is a testament to what The Death Wheelers stand for: rawness
and power.
