Black Tongue is an United Kingdom metal band formed in Hull in 2013. The group consists of Alex Teyen (lead vocals), Eddie Pickard (guitar/vocals), Lloyd Newton (bass), Aaron Kitcher (drums) and James Harrison (guitar). Their style, which is rooted in deathmetal and deathcore, has also incorporated elements of blackened-deathmetal, doom-metal, and metalcore.

Consisting current and former member of bands such as Infant Annihilator, Mister Sister Fister and Acrania, in their lineup, Black Tongue is constantly labelled as one of the most groundbreaking bands of the last 10 years.[1] Black Tongue combines multiple genres of metal combining aspects in their own unique style often referred to as "downtempo deathcore". The band released their self-promoted first EP, Falsifier, in 2013. One year after Falsifier's release, the band self-released the "Born-Hanged" EP and soon after was signed to Century Media[2] . Following being signed the band released both of their previously self-promoted EPs as a digital-only double album.[3] The first full album named "The Unconquerable Dark" was released in 2015 via Century Media. With punishing down-tuned guitars backed up the guttural vocals and slamming breakdowns, many reviewers in the metal community took notice. Metal Injection's review of the single "In the Wake ov the Wolf" described Black Tongue's sound as, "Like, doesn't Black Tongue realize that maybe other bands want to have songs that are this heavy?"[4] The Metal Observer describes the album as having, " a lot more character than Black Tongue's previous releases. The band's compositions remain tailor-made to go off like a car-bomb in the live setting—a fact further supported supported by their sonic similarity to burgeoning deathcore titans."

Following releasing and touring the new album, the band took a hiatus citing stress and complications with their label during the production of "The Unconquerable Death". Many of the band members describe having lose some of their love of music due to the demands and general pressure from Century Media.[5] Guitarist Eddie Pickard talks about how, "You know, you've get phone calls from people you don't even know telling you, "You need to do this and you need to do that, we've got deadlines" and we've (sic) all a bunch of, like relaxed dudes. So that atmosphere wasn't great for us and it really sort of turned things sour"

Following the hiatus, the band left Century Media and self-released the "Nadir" in 2018. A more doom-metal inspired effort, the album was met with critical praise by the metal community. Metal Injection describes the single "Ultima Necat" as "sludgy as all hell and stupid heavy. As Black Tongue tends to do."[6] Sputnik Music called the album, " humongous. Humongous in terms of production, instrumentation, vocals, lyricism, and overarching theme (as this is a concept album)."[7]


Black Tongue musical influences are varied across the many sub genres of metal, with Black Sabbath inspired chord progressions and Suicide Silence influenced vocal ranges. Hernan "Eddie" Hermida did guest vocals on the band's "The Unconquerable Dark" album.
