Ghost Cult Magazine is hosting the exclusive stream of the gnarled “Beware Of Ghouls,” the new single from Chicago’s “sons of sleaze” BONES. The song is the latest precursor of the trio’s impending fourth album, nearing late October release through Disorder Recordings.
BONES unites drummer/vocalist Joe Warlord (Usurper), guitarist Carcass Chris (ex-Usurper), and bassist/lead vocalist Jon Necromancer (Contrition, High Spirits, ex-Usurper). Arriving with their most in-your-face release to date, Vomit sees The Windy City’s filthiest trio continue their signature blend of death, thrash, and black metal on cuts like “Beware Of Ghouls” and “Noose,” while also venturing into sludgier elements on the title track and ripper “Tower Of Skulls.” Drummer Joe Warlord even treads in early Neurosis territory on the tribal drum heavy instrumental, “Retch.” While these elements are truly new territory for BONES, overall, the band relentlessly sticks to the roots of their tainted peers in Autopsy, Coffins, Nunslaughter, and the like.
Vomit was tracked over two days at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio by Jon San Paulo (Shellac, Pelican, Neurosis) and one day at Hypercube Studio with Sanford Parker (Voivod, Darkthrone, Leviathan). The album was then mastered by Collin Jordan at The Boiler Room (Macabre, Eyehategod, Ministry) and completed with gruesome artwork by XNA Casperson (Dawnbringer, Zuul) and design by Eva Flora. Nick Hernandez (Dysphoria, ex-Kommandant) provides guest vocals on the closing song — a cover of Van Halen’s “She’s The Woman” — which was recorded just days before Eddie Van Halen’s death and will be a CD/Bandcamp exclusive track. Prepare to defile your eyes and ears… Vomit is the grossest album of 2022.
BONES’ Jon Necromancer writes of the “Beware Of Ghouls” single, “This is just a classic BONES song. Carcass Chris lays down the basic riff, and then Joe comes in with this unconventional beat and I’m doing my best to showcase it with my bassline. Lyrically, it’s pretty straightforward. Beware of Ghouls! You never know! I’ve always hated children, even when I was young, so I took the opportunity to make the third verse about children getting slaughtered in the wastelands. Because fuck those little jagoffs. “Those tiny bones, you won’t find them for weeks…”
Ghost Cult writes, “Fans of the great lineage of killer bands from Chicago will note the band counts members of Usurper, Contrition, and High Spirits in their ranks.”
