While many metal bands find inspiration from supernatural sources, myths, and legends, Widow’s Peak find influence from true life horror, from the depths of cruelty, terror and pain that man(un)kind so readily descends to.
Widow’s Peak is an aural catalogue of carnage, a metallic mausoleum of pain, a sonic symphony of suffering. Their music does not reach for the stars, but rather for the cold void that surrounds them, the darkness that lives in the soul of man.
Make no mistake; Widow’s Peak’s ferocity is the music of the spears, metal dripping with blood, bile and venom!
Formed in April of 2016, in Calgary AB, Widow’s Peak have toured hard, their line-up has gelled, and are now on the cusp of releasing their debut six-track EP Graceless.
Inspired by Meshuggah, Black Dahlia Murder, Pathology, Beyond Creation, and Cannibal Corpse, Widow’s Peak are premiering their second single and video “CBT” below:
The band comments: “CBT (which stands for Cock and Ball Torture) is about as gruesome as it gets, lyrically. It revolves around the fetish some men have for genital mutilation and the people who indulge them in it. The writing process for the song involved intensive research (including graphic videos) about not only the fetish, but the anatomy of the male genitals and various methods of genital mutilation. The lyrics aim to instill the disgust one might experience if they, too, watched someone cut out their own testicles on camera.”
“Graceless” is due out April 27, 2018 with pre-order available on the Bandcamp at this location.

The band adds: “We think fans will react to Graceless with a combination of shock, disgust, and adrenaline-pumping groove. Each song is very different from one another, and the EP is well rounded enough that fans of any type of extreme metal will find something they like. While the music is technical and the lyrics obscene, there is an underlying groove throughout that ensures the head-banging musicality is never lost.”
