Providence, Rhode Island riff manglers Howl recently completed the recording of their upcoming new full-length. Titled "Bloodlines," the band’s sophomore offering was recorded at Planet Z studio in Hadley, Massachusetts, produced by Chris "Zeuss" Harris (Soulfly, Crowbar, Municipal Waste, 3 Inches Of Blood) and offers up 10 tracks of lead-footed audio menace.
Comments the band on the results: "Bloodlines is HOWL 2.0/HOWL on steroids/the bigger, heavier album. We took our signature sound and pushed it to the next level. This is a metal record influenced by doom, rather than vice versa. There's more aggression, more extremes, it's harder-hitting. Zeuss really helped us capture the sound we wanted, the way we truly sound. Bloodlines is huge, brutal, monstrous!"
"Bloodlines" is set for release via Relapse Records on April 30th, 2013. As a precursor to the record’s official unveiling, Howl will take their metallic doom to the road on a month-long run of live takeovers set to begin next month in New London, Connecticut. More...
Providence, RI’s metallic beasts Howl have entered the studio with producer Zeuss (CROWBAR, MUNICIPAL WASTE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) to record their sophomore album. The album is being recorded, mixed and mastered by Zeuss at his own Planet-Z Recordings and is expected for a Fall 2012 release.
Howl previously released a full-length and EP via Relapse Records. More details on the upcoming release will be announced shortly. Howl guitarist / vocalist Vincent Hausman commented on the new recordings:
"This is the meanest and heaviest thing we've ever done, and we feel like the songwriting is a big step forward since 'Full Of Hell.' We're super psyched to team up with Zeuss, because we feel like he'll properly capture this monster of a record."

Metalsucks commented:
"After months and months and months of negotiations — and by 'negotiations,' we mean 'us pestering and begging them constantly' — the group has FINALLY agreed to emerge from their shell to play the opening set on Day 1 of The Metal Suckfest, one week from today, Friday, November 4. The band will play both I Left My Heart…and 1996's Shut Up it’s Good for Your Complexion in their entirety. (The combined running time of both albums is less than fifteen minutes.)
"They also PROMISED us to debut at LEAST two songs from Chinese Bukkakacy, which they have, indeed, been working on for awhile (although apparently it may not be called that anymore — 'The idea seemed pretty funny in 2006, not so much anymore,' the band told us by e-mail)."

Howl has just completed a full U.S. tour in support of "Full Of Hell" alongside Helmet, St. Vitus, Crowbar, Red Fang, and more. The band is currently home working on new material with plans to record later this year.
The fantastic “South by South Death” earlier in the day would be a tough act to follow, but perhaps the best night show was set for the night of March 18th: The Metalliance Tour.
Following up the best day show yet, was the biggest official SXSW metal show: The Metalliance SXSW stop. The Metalliance tour featured an excellent lineup including The Atlas Moth, Howl, Red Fang, Weedeater, Kylesa, Crowbar, Helmet and Saint Vitus. The show was the first I’d attended at the Dirty Dog. It was a decent sized place, but not exactly laid out well for the crowd that would fill it that night.
I arrived while The Atlas Moth was playing. They had just a couple songs left in their set. The first thing I noticed is that the bass sounded very loud. It gave a groovier feel to their music and most of the bands who played that night for that matter. Their last two songs sounded pretty decent, even if bass-heavy.
Howl was up next and played a short set of their groovy style of doom. Still getting drinks and settled in, their set flew by with little sticking out to me, however. More...
