This is the second full-length release from COUNTDOWN TO ARMAGEDDON, a 3-piece based in Seattle, WA whose sound originated in apocalyptic crust and inevitably progressed into more melodic, post-punk territories over the past eight years of their tenure. Thick layers of reverb and chorus-effected darkwave riffs, sometimes reminiscent of early KILLING JOKE or CHRISTIAN DEATH, weave in and out of the lines between punk, hardcore, and d-beat crust, while retaining a unique identity in each of the eight tracks on the album.
Lyrically this album addresses the conflict between the artificial and natural worlds, and the struggle to preserve humanity in an increasingly digitized and bleak dystopian future. Recorded at Buzz or Howl Studios by Stan Wright (Arctic Flowers) in Portland, OR, and mastered by Jack Control (WB2D) at Enormous Door Studios in Austin, TX. Vinyl version due out on Skuld Releases (Germany) 9/2012. European Tour 9/28-10/28 2012.
MURDERESS – The Last Thing You Will Ever See.. LP repress (translucent swamp green vinyl)
This is the third pressing of the debut LP from Portland’s MURDERESS. Dark, brooding metallic d-beat crust punk with spine-tingling screaming vocals, this is an up and coming female-fronted group that falls somewhere in between the 80′s metallic punk style of groups like SACRILEGE (UK) and CELTIC FROST. This release comes with translucent swamp green vinyl, a poster/lyric insert, black paper inner sleeves, a nice matte-finish jacket, and a free mp3 download card.
