Feedback-laden, instrumental bass and drum duo Black Tar Prophet will release a second full-length next month via Domestic Genocide Records.
Titled "Deafen," the nine track behemoth was recorded live with Max Otworth (Lysura, Venality) at Sonic Hex Recording Compound. Comments bassist/noise enthusiast Greg Swinehart:
"When we tracked this album, we planned on keeping a strong, raw, live sound. We didn't want an overproduced sounding record. We don't want to be the same shit as all the other bands out there. People like us or hate us. And fuck it either way. The backbone behind Black Tar Prophet is hate mixed with a big fuck you.
"We're not trying to jump on any bandwagon. We play what we like. And whatever genre it is, we don't care. We are happy working with Domestic Genocide and hope to provide more noise before 2015, book as many shows as we can, and stay active, as we have been the past three years." More...
Driven by chemical despondency and the liberation of low-end audio scum, Nashville-based gruesome twosome Black Tar Prophet has confirmed that a pending second LP will see release via Domestic Genocide. The following press release was issued about the band:
"Bearing a noxious brew of fuzz and misery-powered fuckcrush akin to Bongzilla, Buzzov*en, Weedeater, Noothgrush and the like, yet void of any vocal contributions, it’s pretty obvious from opening note to crushing closing of every track what the instrumental act is focused on; playing purely pummeling auditory filth with corrosive drugs coursing through it all.
"Since their 2011 convergence the duo Black Tar Prophet has soiled the lands with a rash of demo releases, and in 2012 released both a one-song/forty-two minute album called Note To Nod, and a split with Atlanta act Crawl, with a lineup shift happening the same year amidst the plethora of recordings coming into existence.
"They’ve endured tours of the Southern US states, and have tore up local venues with countless regional acts including Order Of The Owl, Backwoods Payback, Before The Eyewall, Crawl, Gorgantherron, Ponykiller, Motherplant and many more. The band will focus on intoxicating more audiences in the live setting over the rest of 2013 as they conjure and capture the material for their new full-length which will see release in early 2014 via Domestic Genocide.
