It’s been a long time coming, but here it is: ‘Aggressor’ has finally been released. It is available to listen to and buy on our new BandCamp site (‘Parasite God’ is also available as a free download). It’s priced at a stupidly cheap £3.00 – yes, that’s a whole three quid for 6 quality, professional tracks of uncompromising post-apocalyptic thrash metal. For less than the cost of a pint, you can own a digital download (including cover art, lyrics, and liner notes) of the best thrash EP released this year.

You’ll also notice that we’ve uploaded some photos taken on a recent Urban Exploration trip by Tony Gaskin of Stagedive Photography.
Live shows are also imminent – we have officially brought Matt (of Shebrew fame) into the fold on bass, and will be hitting the road in the very near future.
On Saturday, Ash entered the legendary Endless Studios and recorded all the drum parts for the next Besieged record – ‘Aggressor’. Featuring a total of 6 tracks of pure heads-down thrash, so far the record sounds like the end of the world approaching at high speed; you have been warned!
Jez is at the production helm as usual, so expect a big, heavy, aggressive sound.
Jez is also due to start laying down his guitar parts in the next couple of weeks or so, so we’re hoping that we’ll be able to get the EP finished, mixed, mastered, and packaged before the year is out.
The lyrics for the Parasite God demo are now available on the Lyrics page; have a read to get a feel for the underlying theme of misguided religious fervor.
Back in October 2012, Besieged featured on ThrashHead’s FREE Gallery Of Rogues 2: A Witching Hour’s Test Of The First Amendment digital album. The track ‘Parasite God’ was chosen to sit alongside a variety of other thrash bands; check it out – 46 tracks for zero cost!
Besieged are currently working on their forthcoming EP, entitled ‘Aggressor’; the artwork for the EP (brought to life by Tawdry Piffle) can be seen in the background of this website, featuring Besieged’s post-apocalyptic super-soldier mascot character of the same name.
The Aggressor can also be found on Barney’s arm (tattoo by Jim Aitken):
Just a reminder that Besieged’s demo ‘Parasite God’ is available for download completely free of charge on the Media page; the package includes cover art. You can also listen to it on the media player in the sidebar. Feel free to leave a comment to let us know what you think!
Welcome to the new Besieged website. Stay tuned as more content is added.
