Masakari Signs To Southern Lord For Release Of New Album "The Prophet Feeds"

The brutal, metallic, crust punk attack of MASAKARI's debut album will be released on June 8th, 2010 via Southern Lord Recordings.

The label describes the sound on their new album: "MASAKARI unleash a devastating blend of d-beat crust and anxious hardcore descendant to His Hero Is Gone and From Ashes Rise, as well as more punk/crust founders G.I.S.M. and Discharge, and adopt these classic styles to their own point-blank, by-the-throat approach. Crushing, discordant riffing smashes its way through the barrage of ravenous drum battery, broken, eerie guitar leads entangled in the song structures, and all fueled by guttural, searing vocals that power the angry, socio-politically inspired lyrics."

Following a 7" on Halo of Flies Records, the quartet has constructed their debut full-length "The Prophet Feeds," bearing 10 tracks showcasing the band's elevated songwriting, as well as their increasing hatred for governmental corruption, greed and atrocities against humanity. The album was engineered by Bill Korecky (Incantation, Keelhaul, Integrity) and recorded at Mars Studio in the band's home town of Cleveland.

You can download an MP3 of the track "Rapid Dominance" from "The Prophet Feeds" to get a taste of the new material.

1. XVI Rapid Dominance
