MIND MOLD: Canadian Avantgarde Black/Doom Crushers Prepare Debut - Stream Track At Decibel Magazine.

Decibel Magazine is now streaming Antipath - a song extrapolated from Mind Mold’s debut EP which we will release on April 28 digitally and on cassette - you can check out their feature HERE. Decibel have described Mind Mold as a band that “sounds like a mash-up between Gorguts and Deathspell Omega if someone chopped and screwed parts of the song at random”, and that their music is “so off-kilter you'll wonder how the band plays it without tipping over - and before it's over they manage to add in a dour melody line that tries to make you forget you were on the verge of retching misery just a minute ago”.

We could not agree more, as this band’s absurd and genre-defying music truly sounds like a warping and time-dilation of some of the most discordant and technically bezerk black and death metal bands out there, just as in the case of Gorguts and Deathspell Omega - as if those bands' music was indeed subjugated to an hallucinating stasis or to a temporal collapse in which the rhythms and tempos slow down to a lucid coma. But there is more to the band’s ungraspable DNA - so much more...

Spawned by the minds of Calgary, Alberta-based musicians Robert LaChance (guitarist of Canadian dark grind devastators WAKE), Will Bjorndahl, and Ryan Kennedy (of Calgary-based avantgarde grind anomaly Seminary), Mind Mold’s debut self-titled EP is a morbid study, excavation, and rupturing re-incarnation of 90’s noise rock, shoegaze, hardcore, and experimental metal, embodied as five tracks of mind-shattering and flesh-ravaging blackened doom - plagued by oozing striations of noise rock, industrial, and the darkest strains of hardcore. A dark and hopeless descent into total crush depth where the aesthetics and primordial intents of bands like Neurosis, Red Harvest, Blut Aus Nord, Today Is The Day, Rorschach, Jesu/Godflesh, and Swans coexist in majestic and torturous harmony, incarnated through a surreal and suffocating kaleidoscope of sound made of haunting atmospheres, puzzling and mind-crushing guitar harmonies, blood-chilling screams, pulsating baselines and pulverizing drums. Look out for more streams to hit the airwaves soon and pre-order tapes and digital products from our Bandcamp and or store.
