»To Whom It May Concern… Fuck You!« is the debut EP by the Montreal-based crash metal act Iron Asparagus, following the two singles »Mr. Molotov« and »Diamond In The Dirt«, released at the end of 2022 and both included in the EP.

»To Whom It May Concern… Fuck You!« is a short work with an incendiary and sarcastic power. The name of the opener, which is also the title-track, already showcases a strong ironic content. By listening to the song, the first impression is that of being in front of a classic ‘80s thrash metal track, but reading the lyrics we realize that it is anything but, since the sarcasm is strong and the tone is flippant. If with “Orbitoclast” we have a kind of salute to Metallica’s thrash ballad »Sanitarium«, it is with »Mr. Molotov« that hues of stoner and sarcastic lyrics deliciously emerge again. In this song it is clear that our destinies have already been decided, or rather, predetermined, contrary to the freedom they want to convince us to have.

»Diamond In The Dirt« concludes the EP by moving away from the critical tone of the previous songs to question about “what we have to do to improve our world”. The answer is simply: cultivate and preserve our brilliance and uniqueness as human beings, because only in this way can we change the world for the better.

»To Whom It May Concern… Fuck You!« is not the usual thrash metal album. There are no nuclear wars, no zombies or gas masks here. The impression is that the Canadian band wants to challenge us by asking “Do you think we are really a thrash metal band?” The impression is that, if they had played any other genre, they would not have lost even a small part of their sarcasm and their irreverence.

»Diamond In The Dirt« is a song about the freedom of speech and how it is so hard of being respected for just having different opinions from the others nowadays. The mastermind Captain J. Savage stated: “Man intimidates man. Whether it’s with missiles or in the schoolyard, he likes to attack anyone who doesn’t think like him, anyone who is different. In this song, I tell the one who lives a hell at school that he is the Diamond in the dirt.”

About »Mr. Molotov« Iron Asparagus says: “This song is dedicated to all the people who resist the invader. It is also dedicated to those who protest against their tyrant. You are the ones who will be remembered and the ones who will inspire the generations to come. Thank you for your courage.”

Iron Asparagus, the most non-thrash metal band in the world, will release »To Whom It May Concern… Fuck You!« on February 3, 2023. Needless to say, as an independent band.
