Calvaiire Streaming New LP

Throatruiner Records is now taking pre-orders for "Forceps," the debut album from dark hardcore/noise outfit Calvaiire.

Due out December 31st on deluxe gatefold LP, CD and tape, "Forceps" was recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé at la Senelle. The entire album can be heard in the player below, and the following press release was also issued:

"Calvaiire is the union of four individuals with no higher ambition than to push their own boundaries into a raw, cathartic sound. Recorded in five days in their hometown of Laval (France) with Amaury Sauvé (producer/sound engineer for Birds in Row & As We Draw, acts with which the band shares members), their debut full-length 'Forceps' displays their personal vision of how aggressive music should sound - bleak, visceral metallic hardcore played with the hunger of starving dogs, while lyrically addressing seclusion, anxiety and forging ahead despite prevailing vacuity.

"These ten tracks were tracked in a live setting, resulting in a massive, unpolished, and raw recording that accurately mimics the tense and the unpredictable character of 'Forceps.' From the mood swings of 'Flétrissure' to the heartless assault of the closing track 'Meurtrières,' the band demonstrates their will to explore the most abrasive subgenres without losing focus on songwriting, creating an ambitious but coherent piece of work where nothing is left to chance."
