Please tell us about the history and of your band and its members.
It all started when I went to a party Chas threw. We talked about a different band reformation but when we got together we found ourselves jamming new riffs. Meat Train was born.
Stu has been in Thus Defiled with Chas. I've been in Liquefied Skeleton,Winter Of Torment, Reign, B900. Chas has been in Thus Defiled, Liquefied Skeleton, JFK.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We all have different influences. That's what makes the Meat stew - ha ha. I'm a massive old school thrash and death fan. But I also love UFO and Schenker,Y&T, Sabbath, Dio etc…
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
We try to be different. Our music is, well let's say it's heavy but we also bring melody and clarity. It was really import that the vocals were clear - heavy but clear. That was made clear from the start. Heavy, extreme - but we wanted people to hear what we were doing.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
Flesh Made Man was released October 2013. We had a lot of great reviews. Most of them are posted on our Facebook page.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We love playing live and that's where we thrive. The songs are brought to life. We've played the Phillipines, Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal, Scotland and the UK. We're also off to Germany in 2017. We live for live.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We're always progressing. We won't be restricted in style, we want to build on our style - expand it and make it bigger, breathe more and get into people's heads and lives. We want to get better, progress the music make it accessible for all.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Get the new album out there. It's recorded and will be released in early 2017. Then we'll tour and get the live shows out there to as many people as we can. So promoters hit us up on our page. Message us. We're available.
