10 for 2014: #9 – Marmozets

What do some of the biggest names in metal, I’m talking Trivium, Killswitch Engage, Kvelertak and behemoths of all that is heavy, Slipknot, have in common with our #9 on our 10 for 2014 list? They’re all signed to Roadrunner Records, who for the last 30 years have been bringing the thrash which makes us, well, thrash…

Comparing up-and-comers Marmozets to Slipknot seems unfair, seeing as the latter have built up a phenomenal reputation since the ’90s as one of the definers of the genre. However, we should point out that Marmozets have been around for 6 years, although you’d be excused for thinking they had formed more recently since they look closer to their GCSEs than A-levels.

Their appearance at Reading Festival 2012 on the BBC Introducing Stage gave everyone an early taste of the carnage and chaos Marmozets would be thrusting upon us in 2013. Now, after touring slots with Enter Shikari and appearances at this year’s Liverpool Sound City and Great Escape, the band have honed their live show into a frenetic, fret-driven beast.

The group from Bingley, West Yorkshire who’ve only just become legal to drink alcohol will be inflicting anarchy on larger audiences throughout 2014, whilst putting pen to paper on a full album. Becca Macintyre is the kind of frontwoman any band starting out needs; she’s an absolute dynamo, showing all the traits of a metal superstar before she hits her twenties. With riffs ahoy and a helluva lot of youthful exuberance about them, there’s absolutely no reason why Marmozets shouldn’t be setting their sights on Slipknot’s level of fame.
