Iron Lung Records has announced the forthcoming release of the debut full-length by Tokyo based powerviolence collective Dreadeye, bringing to an end a period of discographic silence that spanned almost an entire decade in which they have shared stages with the likes of Despise You, Full Of Hell, and Unholy Grave. The new album is titled «The World Has Left Us Behind» and, according to its press release, it “does not seem to fit in to any genre whatsoever. Its got the most twisted ultra blown out guitar sound yet overall hi-fi recording style you’ve ever heard and they like to chop up the power violence blasts by having different guest artists do introduction and interlude tracks that range from harsh noise to electronic music to hip hop beats.” It goes on to say that, on paper, this shouldn’t really work, which is the point where we must disagree, as it sounds exactly like the kind of unconventional approach we year for more of. Below, find an example of a hip-hop laced introduction, «Eyes Of Dread», courtesy of DJ Eons (alias of Dan Bolleri from the legendary Spazz), followed by half a minute of powerviolence in «Your New Anthem».
«The World Has Left Us Behind» is set for release on May 31 through Iron Lung Records on digital and vinyl formats and it can be pre-ordered in both formats at this location.
