"Gutsy throat shredders and irresistible riff laden grooves to bang and raise your horns to" - Kerrang KKKK

"With this amount of intricacy and power it can only be regarded as nothing but brilliance" - Rock Sound 8/10

"Bring on the bar room brawls and beer soaked fury"- Powerplay

"Think Jagermeister, Jack Daniels and anti-emo ramblings" - Terrorizer

Huron’s second album, Mary Celeste, is a brutal, hard-hitting reminder of why metal is in as healthy a state now as it has ever been. Bringing to mind the loose, guttural intensity of early Pantera and adding elements of classic thrash and hardcore, the record never loses its vitriolic sense of direction. Huron’s sound evokes the likes of COC, Kylesa, Mastodon and Black Label Society, without ever losing a sense of their own identity.

The band have worked hard to get where they are today – their debut Cheyne Stoking (Rising Records) brought glowing reviews from Kerrang! (KKKK) and Rock Sound (8/10). Iron Maiden legend Bruce Dickinson became an overnight fan and talked about the album passionately on his BBC6 radio show.

Since then Huron have toured the UK extensively with the likes of Valient Thorr and Viking Skull and they were also booked for the Hellfire Festival at Birmingham NEC along with Saxon, Anvil and Fields of the Nephilim.

Last year they played Hammerfest II on the same stage as Devil Driver, Suicidal Tendencies, Orange Goblin and Iced Earth; with the release of Mary Celeste, and album highlights such as Branded, Blood In Blood Out, Serpentswine and the fucking furious Suffer, the band look set to build on what are already impressive foundations.

Mary Celeste highlights a band who know how to bludgeon with the best of them, but also shows a songcraft and subtlety that should see them landing not too far off the big leagues. British metal is in bloom and Huron are yet more proof of it.
