New Music | Cannibal Animal – Grand Theft Manual

By Alex Platt

‘Grand Theft Manual’, the latest single from Hull based three-piece Cannibal Animal, is a spooky heavy hitting blast of fuzzy anarchic post-punk. The opening guitar notes sound like the wails and warbling of a vengeful ghost before being undercut by a heavy blast of bass and drums. The song is high-paced and vicious, with the drums kicking in like Frankenstein’s heavy footsteps to create a pounding rhythm. Those guitars don’t give up either, following you as you race through this haunted house of a track, trying to survive until the first light of morning. The vocals nicely dust off the song, with a 60’s garage revivalist fuzzy reverb effect layered over them. When the anguished yelps of the chorus kick in, it creates a real payoff.
