Extreme grind quartet FULL OF HELL have shared a visualizer for brand new track, “Silmaril.” The song will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Weeping Choir (out May 17), and can be streamed above.
“‘Silmaril’ is about the upheaval of forbidden knowledge. We enlisted Paulo Paguntalan, NYC’s own purveyor of gore and death for additional vocal duties on this song. ‘All goes onward and outward, all collapses,'” the band comments.
In mid-2014, it was announced that Maryland/Pennsylvanian grindcore band Full of Hell had signed with Profound Lore. Their debut release on this label is a full-length collaboration with the Japanese noise legend Masami Akita. Vocalist Dylan Walker said in an interview that they met Balázs Pándi at a show in Brooklyn who enjoyed their set and, as Merzbow’s drummer, suggested that they record a split with Akita. He decided to do a collaboration instead, so he sent them 45 minutes of material to work with, and the band spent at least a year creating the album. It was released both digitally and as a 2CD Digipak on November 25, 2014. The CD release contains a bonus disc titled Sister Fawn consisting of five noise works. Walker also noted in the same interview that the main album is 70% Full of Hell and 30% Merzbow, while Sister Fawn has a reverse ratio of 70% Merzbow and 30% Full of Hell. Sister Fawn later received a limited cassette run as well as a separate digital download.
