Peregrine is an anarcho-primitivist/savagist death metal band based out of southwestern PA. It was started at the end of 2006 by KT in Athens, GA as a release for overt anger against the world that domestication and civilization have created. Fueled by a love of wildness and solidarity with the lives of those directly confronted by the cannibalistic cycles of necessary growth of civilization. The purpose has been simple; spreading the directed hatred of civilization as a critique rather than a collection of misanthropic notions and undermining the domesticating process that is constantly reinforced in our lives.
The music is the result of a sense of urgency and rage combined through the most appropriate forms: blackened death metal infused with elements of hardcore and crust.
As of November 2008, KT moved back up to Pennsylvania and has re-established the band there with Jordan Villella on drums (Mammoth Bath, ex-Zimmerman's Note, ex-Circle of Dead Children), Jared Ondovchik (ex-Auryn) and Steve Kirk on guitar. The change up has brought in vigorous new blood and an entirely anarchist line up.
We hate writing bios, hate civilization, love wildness, and stip the fuck out of whatever we can.
The word 'Peregrine' means wanderer, which, given our history/future as nomadic gatherer-hunter bands, is fitting enough. Bu the name comes after the Peregrine falcon. The fastest bird in the world, swooping at speeds over 200 miles per hour, is also one of the most widespread birds in the world. It inhabits every continent except Antarctica. And it was almost completely wiped out by DDT. Powerful. Amazing. Resilient. WILD.
Peregrine's frontman, Kevin Tucker, is an anarcho-primitivist writer and speaker. He is the editor of the magazine, Species Traitor, and together with John Zerzan he has engaged on multiple speaking tours about civilization and primitivism.- From Metal-Archives.com ("Peregrine")
Peregrine isn't really a Cascadian BM band, musically speaking, not to mention geographically (residing in Georgia and Pennsylvania apparently). Most say they are more similar to some sort of Death Metal (and grind), with differing degrees of BM influence. Not usually my cup of tea, but interesting nonetheless.
Buy it if you dig it.
