Stream the debut track from AS WE DRAW «Mirages» - 2xLP/CD out October 4th on Throatruiner Records

Head over to Metalsucks.net to take a listen to the first track from AS WE DRAW's new album «Mirages». «Mirages» is due out October 4th via Throatruiner Records - comes on limited clear 2xLP packaged in a deluxe triple-gatefold jacket and on CD digifile.

"«Mirages» is the outstanding second full-length from french powerhouse AS WE DRAW. Pursuing their will of constant evolution since 2009, these Laval natives have imposed their unique take on post-metal and noisy hardcore, crafted through ambitious songwriting and disarming live performances. Three years in the making, the follow-up to 2010's «Lines Breaking Circles» shows a band decided to challenge themselves as much as the listener (if not even more), out of every sub-genres conventions and commonplaces. As a proof, the album starts with the longest track ever wrote by the band. The ten-minutes mudslide that is "The Window" flows from eerie and intricate melodies to overwhelming parts, before descending into an unreal, glacial ending.

This record is the culmination of the power trio's hard-earned mastery, where dense and nervous tracks ("Blackmail", "Denial") stand alongside richly atmospheric and massive soundscapes ("Shipwreck", "Fata Morgana"). Engineered and mixed at La Senelle by their drummer Amaury Sauvé, mastered by Magnus Lindberg, and lyrically exploring the theme of paranoïa seen through different eyes, «Mirages» is destined to remain an awe-inspiring piece of dark and forward-thinking heavy music."

Recorded live by Nicolas Aigros at La Senelle Studio, Laval
Produced, engineered and mixed by Amaury Sauvé
Mastered by Magnus Lindberg
Graphic Design by Romain Barbot/Iamsailor

Stream the debut track from PROTESTANT's «In Thy Name» - 12"LP up for pre-order now


Stream "Vengeance", the opening track from PROTESTANT's new full-length «In Thy Name». We are now taking pre-orders for the european version - the 12"LP comes on grey vinyl and includes instant digital download.
Order it here (US version on Halo Of Flies). All orders will ship around August 15th.

"Milwaukee's PROTESTANT, a full decade into its existence, has made a record more furious, focused and over the top than anything previous combined. This is perhaps a band with nothing to lose and no interest in anything other than spitting in the face of any enemy within reach. After four full-lengths and a plethora of EPs and splits, «In Thy Name» brings the band's brand of dark and crusty metallic hardcore to new levels of sonic destruction. All wrapped up in a raw, noisy production, these eight tracks are nothing but a brutal collision of punk/hardcore and extreme metal that won't give any quarter, ever."

VERMIN WOMB «Permanence» 12" up for pre-order and free download

VERMIN WOMB «Permanence» is now up for pre-order, full streaming and free download.
Head over to Metalsucks for an exclusive full stream of the record.

Pre-orders (Europe/world)
Pre-orders (USA/Canada)
Free download

The vinyl comes on milky clear 12" and is housed in a glossy heavy jacket with printed innersleeve - all orders will ship around September 1st. An high-quality download (with complete artwork) is also available from our Bandcamp page.

"While their name is probably unfamiliar to most, Denver's VERMIN WOMB is the new project from Ethan Lee Mc Carthy (guitar/vocals in Primitive Man and formerly of Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire, Death Of Self...). Their debut EP "Permanence" fills the hole left by CTTTOAFF's apocalyptic take on grind/death and sludge (same line-up, different drummer) in a darker, more metallic way, and still topped by some of the most terrifying vocals and brutal guitar tones around."
