Today Sacrament Music drops the first single from WHITE WIDOWS, a Brooklyn metal quintet formed by members of Cleanteeth, The Destro, Grudges and Primitive Weapons.
The second track from WHITE WIDOWS’ self-titled debut release, “El Marrano” also features guest vocals from Incendiary vocalist Brendan Garone, and hits as an exclusive via the band’s cohorts at MetalSucks, who introduce the track perfectly: “Never before have power groove, sludge and hardcore-style vocals meshed so well together; it’s like if Vinnie Paul sat in with Crowbar and asked Jacob Bannon to get up on stage and sing.”
Get your head thumped with WHITE WIDOWS’ “El Marrano” RIGHT HERE.
Among other regional shows to be confirmed continually, WHITE WIDOWS will storm Acheron in Brooklyn with Pittsburgh crust warriors Heartless in March, and have two shows with local pirates Mutilation Rites and Seattle deathbeaters Black Breath in Brooklyn and Philly in April.
WHITE WIDOWS Shows:
3/09/2013 Acheron – Brooklyn, NY w/ Heartless
4/20/2013 Knitting Factory – Brooklyn, NY w/ Black Breath, Mutilation Rites
4/21/2013 O’Reily’s – Philadelphia, PA w/ Black Breath, Mutilation Rites
Formed by drummer Kenny Appell (Goes Cube, Cleanteeth), bassist Brian Ponto, guitarists Nick Emde (The Destro) and Travis Bacon (Grudges), and vocalist David Castillo (Primitive Weapons, Saint Vitus Bar, Sacrament Music), WHITE WIDOWS merges NYC-style metallic hardcore and Southern sludge metal elements and production into mid-paced metallic grooves, slow-motion breakdowns and high-paced pit-swinging melees diversifying the flow over the self-titled debut’s twenty-four minute lifespan. The record was recorded with Dean Baltulonis at the Wild Arctic in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Most Precious Blood, Goes Cube) and will see a digital release/exclusive shirt package via Sacrament Music on March 1st.
