Revolver Magazine today presents the premiere of Bone Dance's new video, "Writhing In Ecstasy."
Directed by AJ Duthie, the clip features a song from Bone Dance's self-titled album, released late last year on Melotov Records (home also to releases by The Banner, Ghostlimb, and Old Wounds).
Revolver reports: "From Boise, Idaho, Bone Dance churn out what they themselves call 'utter, desert-driven nihilism' - think suffocating heaviness along the lines of Botch, Coalesce, and Engineer." Of the self-titled album, Cvlt Nation stated, "Bone Dance's new LP sets the bar high for all newer bands playing chaotic metal/hardcore and is one of the must-hear metal albums of the year, period."
Coming up August 27th, Melotov will reissue another Bone Dance release, the out-of-print 2010 "Snakecharmers" EP, as a limited edition, one-sided color vinyl 12", featuring all new artwork. More...
Melotov Records presents its release of Bone Dance's 2010 EP, "Snakecharmers," which is due out August 27th.
Originally self-released by the band and now long out of print, "Snakecharmers" finally gets its justice, thanks to Melotov. A limited run of 500 copies, Melotov's reissue of the EP features new artwork, adorning a one-sided, color vinyl 12" (200 "smoke haze," 300 gold).
From Boise, Idaho, Bone Dance churns out what the band refers to as "utter, desert-driven nihilism" - suffocating heaviness in the order of Botch, Coalesce, and Engineer. Sludgy riffs spiral downward, drums strike and recoil, and vocalist Morgan Mechling spits pure disgust as if preemptively delivering mankind's eulogy.
The "Snakecharmers" reissue comes after Melotov's release of Bone Dance's self-titled full-length in Fall 2012. The "Snakecharmers" track listing is as follows: More...
Throatruiner Records has issued the following announcement about releasing a self-titled LP from Bone Dance:
"Bone Dance, a ritually charged and menacingly DIY band seeped in all things heavy, is rising from the South Idaho desert with their first self-titled LP for Melotov Records (USA), Throatruiner Records & Prototype Records (Europe). Bone Dance takes the grime and gravelly glut of the band’s previous work, the self-released Snakecharmers, and reevaluates not only its intensity, but also the band’s heritage: retooling the ferocity of hardcore, the technical acumen of extreme metal, and the minimal gauze of sludge and doom.
"This is the kind of tight, controlled, anvil-heavy music that only comes out of an area dominated by the Religious Right, the Conservative Coalition, and some of the most culturally repressive mechanisms in America. Bone Dance acts as a document of this inheritance by time and place and on principle rejects all of it. As a combatant to the moderate veneer that glosses even the counterculture in their hometown of Boise, Bone Dance have crafted not a shield but a weapon against the repressive devices they so clearly detest.
"By deconstructing typical sludge breakdowns, by retooling blast beats into searing grooves, by inverting a biblical poetic into a sinister manifest of their body politic, Bone Dance forges a musical dialogue exemplifying the clash typical of the liberal-conservative head butting seen throughout misleading media; however, the band seems to reject even mainstream leftist views in favor of an utter desert-driven nihilism. Bone Dance proves yet again that the frontier isn’t innovation—the frontier is misery."
