The year is almost over. As we approach either the end of the world or just another juncture into the decaying future, here is a quick rundown of what went down during the first full year of Major Destroyer, and what we have in store so far for 2013...
We were stoked to release two cassettes, the first being the debut EP from Hands I Annul Yours, a preview of what's to come from one of Major Destroyer's core contributors. And secondly, the absolutely crushing full length Drop Out and Kill by UK based Blut. Blending elements of doom/drone with black metal, noise, and psychedelic terror, these guys are killing it. If you haven't checked them out, listen to a clip and die...
Back in April, Hands I Annul Yours began recording and mixing their new free EP, Hell Crane, which should be available sometime during 2013. Recorded in the MDR compound, a historic 1800's house somewhere in New England, expect more raw and crushing riffs from these guys. This one is going to be louder and heavier than ever. Also recorded in the MDR compound and ready to unleash in early 2013, the first full on offering by our good friends Lowlife. Fast, dirty, trashy rock 'n' roll/punk is their trade, and the music speaks just as loud as their lyrics. These guys are fucking shit up live almost every weekend and we cannot wait to get a physical release sorted out for them! Finally, we are looking forward to new projects by Generation Welfare, Freak Child, and might even drift into the realm of a dirty raw blues release with a group of animals tearing up live venues from the east coast all the way to the mid-west, The Cannibal Ramblers.
Finally, a little early holiday present from MDR. The Incests stopped by the MDR compound and held it together long enough for us to capture their first new recording since 2004!
MORE TO COME. MAJOR DESTROYER. 2012.
