Shroud Eater have teamed with Inhale the Heavy for the premiere of the artwork for their new release :TH:REE: :CVRSES:, which can be seen below.
Miami’s brooding riff sorcerers Shroud Eater are set to release a 13 minute experimental noisy drone track on cassette titled :TH:REE: :CVRSES: on February 8, 2017, to coincide with a performance at the International Noise Conference in Miami, FL.
The Obelisk premiered the track on February 1. You can listen to it here.
The release of :TH:REE: :CVRSES: is a drastic left turn from the usual doomy Shroud Eater fare; fuzzed out guitars, suffocating bass and bombastic drumming is replaced with meditative synthesizers and malicious intoning of curses over other-worldly analog echoes.
Dead Hand tease us during their side of the split, as it soon melts down in to a very relaxed vibe, gently pulsating guitar strings and keyboards.
Hang on, did it say Dead Head, or Dead Hand? Oh wait, here are the vocal growls, this is certainly not Jerry Garcia. These vocals come courtesy of gargling razor blades and singing the lines whilst the blood is bubbling up in his throat just before it congeals. I hope you get the idea.
Dead Hand are a hard working band with split releases and tours behind them. And after the interlude the whole band release hell on the record, and I can feel the sweat from the energy. Southern Druid Records have done both acts proud with this invaluable split which could be a doorway in to these bands for some people as it is a terrific introduction.
