Theftuous: v. tending to commit theft; n. a musical group taking inspiration from Nu Metal, Punk, Rock and Electro, blended to create a musical style all on its own.
Cannibal, the electrifying new single, is now available for streaming on your favorite platform. In the year 2000, guitarist Massimo “Massy” Fiocco (known for his work with One Minute Silence, M.U.T.O, and Pink Punk) crossed paths with vocalist Marcus Harrington (formerly of Relative Ash, Duna Hill) while both were on tour during the ‘Tattoo the Earth‘ tour with Slipknot, Slayer, Sepultura, etc. Despite pursuing their respective musical journeys across the United States and Europe in the following years, Massy and Marcus lost touch. However, fate intervened, and after nearly two decades, Marcus reconnected with Massy through social media, igniting a creative spark that would give birth to Theftuous.
This dynamic duo further solidified their lineup with the addition of accomplished drummer Pat Garvey (from Ozric Tentacles) and bassist John Fahnestock (known for his work with Snot and Amen). Together, they fuse their talents, delivering a captivating blend of meticulously crafted songs, powerful vocals, crushing riffs, melodic finesse, thought-provoking lyrics, and an unrelenting rhythm section that charges forward like a freight train. With their musical influences as diverse as the places they’ve collaborated in, Theftuous dedicated themselves tirelessly to bring their debut release, the EP titled “All I Deserve,” to life.
“All I Deserve” is produced by Massy, with additional production contributions by John Hendicott (known for his work with Jamie Woon, Chipmunk, and PinkPunk). The EP is expertly mixed by Chris Collier (notable for his work with Korn, Hed pe, and Mick Mars), ensuring a powerful and polished sound. This impressive musical journey is captured under the banner of Kill Your Culture Recording.
Elevating the EP to new heights, Theftuous collaborates with a roster of renowned guest artists, each leaving their indelible mark on the tracks. Contributions from other prominent artists include Chris “C.J.” Jagdhar (of The Wildhearts) and Benji Webbe (Skindred, Dub War) and most notably the collab that all One Minute Silence fans will enjoy – Brian “Yap” Barry (One Minute Silence, Pink Punk) lends his exceptional talents to the song “Entity,” infusing it with a distinctive energy that will fans of the past, will surely recongize.
