Antihero Magazine recently had the chance to chat with Chris Thoresen of Canadian metalcore outfit Shark Infested Daughters. During the conversation, Chris talked about the band’s recent tour of Canada, their brand-new single “Certa”, featuring guest vocals by Frankie Palmeri of Emmure, the band’s musical evolution, and the Gothenburg influence that helped elevate Shark Infested Daughters to the next level.
Formed in 2012, Shark Infested Daughters is a band currently riding the crest of a wave. Between their rigorous touring schedule and energizing live performances, the band has made a name for themselves as one of the top up-and-coming metalcore bands to watch in Western Canada.
After two EP releases in 2013, and 2015 respectively, Shark Infested Daughters went all in for the release of 2016 debut full-length “These Tides, Our Tombs”. Displaying a unique blend of styles, lending influence from some of heavy metals forefathers from both the US and Europe – the Gothenburg Sound at the forefront of much of their work – as well as some of the band’s most prevalent contemporaries.
Latest single ‘Cetra’ is the newest showcase of the band’s promise & versatility, with beautiful melodies intertwined with punishing riffs, crushing bass, and syncopated kicks.
