This Be The Verse: 'I love screaming at people"
One-man industrial project This Be The Verse is making a genre-smashing racket
2016 has been one hell of a year for Cyrus King. After three years making a gnarly, heavily electronic-infused industrial racket under the moniker This Be The Verse, he dropped his self-titled, produced and funded debut album in October. And in the last few months alone, the London-based producer and DJ has hit the road with some of the UK’s most ferociously exciting new bands, supporting loopy alt metallers Wild Throne and, most recently, decimating sold-out venues across the UK as part of a three- band wrecking crew with Black Peaks and Heck. By the time Hammer catch up with him, he’s battling severe post-tour blues. “I’ve had a taste of it now and I’m dying to get back on the road,” he groans. “I definitely love screaming at a room full of people.”
