No Echo is hosting an exclusive stream of “Graves (Pours Of Earth)” by Ventura County, California-based metallic hardcore outfit SLOWBLEED. The track sees release just days ahead of the band’s Taylor Young-produced debut LP, A Blazing Sun, The Fiery Dawn, out this Friday through Creator-Destructor Records.
SLOWBLEED is a band formed with a goal of achieving unrelenting extremity, bridging brutality and technicality within their blend of hardcore aggression and death metal precision. Born, bred, and raised on the bands of the Nardcore scene they grew up in, the Santa Paula-based band was started in 2017. Following the release of the Never Been Worse EP in July 2019, in 2020 SLOWBLEED released the “Hung At Dawn” single, a promo EP, and their song “Trust” was included on Indecision Records’ Nardcore For Life compilation alongside Ill Repute, Stalag 13, False Confession, Dead Heat, In Control, Downpresser, and more.
In early 2021, SLOWBLEED entered The Pit Recording Studio (Nails, Xibalba, God’s Hate) with Taylor Young at the helm and recorded their debut LP, A Blazing Sun, The Fiery Dawn, the album unloading nine volatile tracks of pummeling death metal surging with metallic hardcore energy and haunting tones. With additional sound design by Will Putney and Steve Seid A Blazing Sun, The Fiery Dawn was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and completed with artwork by Ridgerhine.
Alongside the premiere of “Graves (Pours Of Earth),” No Echo is running an interview with vocalist Jon Caytion, dubbing A Blazing Sun, The Fiery Dawn, “a nine-track album that should cement their place as one of their scene’s strongest representatives… Listening to the new material, I can see SLOWBLEED attracting in more metal listeners since it veers more into that direction than their past output.”
Stream SLOWBLEED’s “Graves (Pours Of Earth)” first only at No Echo RIGHT HERE.
Creator-Destructor will release A Blazing Sun, The Fiery Dawn on digital and vinyl formats this Friday, January 14th, the LP on three different variants.
