This has been a big week for the United Kingdom. The people of Scotland voted in a historic referendum to decide whether or not they wanted to become an independent country. As you no doubt heard about in the wider media, the vote was split 55/45 in favour of remaining in the Union with the other home nations. We didn’t want to let such a momentous event in our nation’s history go by without some acknowledgment, hence why we’ve made a Sunday Spotify Slaylist of some of our favourite Scottish bands.
Cerebral Bore are a death metal band based in Glasgow, Scotland. Although the name was used with different members in 2004, the Cerebral Bore that exists now wasn't born until 2006. From then, the main focus of the band has been to write brutal music and bring it to metal fans all over the planet.
The Band recorded the E.P. "The Dead Flesh Architect" in November 2006, and played their first show the same month.
For the next few months they played only in their home town Read more on Last.fm
Cerebral Bore on Thrash Hits
November 30th, 2012
Right, we’ve arrived at the final day of our retrospective of 25 years of Earache Records, and today we’re catching up with some of the young guns passing through the label in recent years (as well as a pair of oldies). Today we’re hitting Municipal Waste, Deicide, Evile, Wormrot, and Cerebral Bore.

Well, he survived – and here’s the final proof. In the last of his three reports from Hammerfest IV, David Keevill pretends he didn’t have a permanent hangover, and reviews Oaf, Cerebral Bore, Mortad, DripBack, Hell, Amon Amarth, and – of course – Saturday night’s headliners, the almighty Skindred.

This time next week, our intrepid representatives at Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor, will be slowly trying to recover from a weekend where the level of attention paid to the many heavy metal bands playing is directly (and inversely) proportional to the levels of booze being imbibed by them. How do we know they’ll be getting smashed rather than getting their mosh on? Well, because even if you headline your event with Anthrax and Skindred, we know for a fact that whenever more than one Thrash Hits contributor ends up in the same room at Pontin’s in Prestatyn, someone ends up puking. That’s not us trying to sound like a bunch of lads-on-tour kerrrrayyyzzzyy drunks either – that’s the raw statistics of Hammerfest talking.
In any case, we figured we’d put together a Hammerfest-themed Spotify Slaylist to start getting them in the mood nice and early.

Last week you’ll have no doubt read us urging you to go check out ‘Horrendous Acts of Iniquity’, the brand new track from three-quarters-Scottish-one-quarter-Dutch gore-minded upstarts, Cerebral Bore. And if you read any of the words that were alongside the bowel-threateningly aggressive death metal, you’ll know that this isn’t a cut off a forthcoming album or even an EP, but as a single. A single? Yes, and a non-album single at that. People still do those, apparently.
We figured this was more than enough of an excuse to catch up with the band’s guitarist/manager, Paul Mcguire, to find out not only why they’ve done this, but to grill him on everything else that’s been going on and is about to kick off over in the world of Cerebral Bore.

Last week, Scottish-based gore-minded death metallers, Cerebral Bore, went into the studio to record a new single. Not a new album, mind you – just a new single – in order to try out a few new ideas in preparation for their next album, whichthey’re planning on recording later in 2012. What really caught our attention, however, is how Cerebral Bore have chose to premier this new track – ‘Horrendous Acts of Iniquity’ – on their unsuspecting fanbase.
Season’s Bleedings 2011: Cerebral Bore – Paul Mcguire is the missing link between George Michael and Jimmy Nail
December 20th, 2011
Paul Mcguire, who happens to be both manager and guitarists of brutal death metal tykes, Cerebral Bore, has a bit of a thing for Ghostbusters. How do we know that? Why, because when we asked him a load of questions about Christmas, he mentioned it on two separate occasions. We didn’t have it in us to point out that arguably it’s Ghostbusters II that’s the more Christmassy of the two.
