Today the metal miscreants at MetalSucks are streaming Concrete Sustain from industrial doomsayers BATILLUS. Co-produced by audio sage Sanford Parker at Sound Generation in Manhattan and Hypercube in Chicago and mastered by Collin Jordan at the Boiler Room, Concrete Sustainencapsulates auditory devastation. Details MetalSucks: “These NYC doom-bringers… have been pedaling their thunderous industrio-sludge since 2009, but Concrete Sustain is their most cohesive release yet. It’s also their most unique; the band has finally found a seamless way to blend their doom foundation with the industrial element that vocalist Fade Kainer brings to the band, and they’ve done it by writing their catchiest songs to date. That it’s their best sounding release from a sonic perspective …doesn’t hurt things one bit.”
Witness sonic destruction RIGHT NOW at THIS LOCATION.
Currently in the midst of a month-long run of live assaults, BATILLUS will be laying waste to Austin next week at this year’s edition of the SXSW Music Conference. In addition to their previously announced slot on Pitchfork’s Show No Mercy showcase, BATILLUS will appear on the 2nd Annual Heavy Metal BBQ, Invisible Oranges Day Party and the second stage of Metal At The Music Ranch!
