BRAINOIL Streaming on Decibel Magazine

The Oakland sludge alchemists in BRAINOIL — featuring current and past members of Deathgrave, Laudanum, Graves At Sea, Stormcrow, Grimple, and Watch Them Die, among others — will drop their imminent new full-length Singularity To Extinction tomorrow via Tankcrimes.
 
In advance of its release, Decibel Magazine is offering up an exclusive stream of the record noting, “Singularity To Extinction is swathed — or maybe drowned is a better descriptor — in raw, abrasive crust. Walls of guitar backed by sluggish drumming wash over the listener and Greg Wilkinson barks out vocal lines like he wants to cough up blood at the end of a recording session. Describing Singularity To Extinction as misanthropic would be an understatement; abrasive guitar tones and vocals combined with glacially slow tempos put BRAINOIL‘s latest in the same league as Dystopia, Grief, and Noothgrush.”
 
Play it loud, only at Decibel, at THIS LOCATION. 
 
Their first output since 2011’s punishing Death Of This Dry Season full-length, the long-anticipated Singularity To Extinction was captured at Earhammer Studios by bassist/vocalist Greg Wilkinson (Deathgrave, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves At Sea), mastered at Audisiege by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, Necrot), and offers up seven ravenous hymns of gnarly audio antagonism all swathed in the apocalyptic cover art of John Santos (Torche, Neurosis, Irata, Noisear). Infusing their signature sludge with unorthodox time signatures, Singularity To Extinction stands as BRAINOIL‘s fastest, crustiest, and most monolithic offering to date.
 
BRAINOIL‘s Singularity To Extinction, will be available on CD, limited LP (150 – splatter; 350 – smoke housed in metallic foil case wrapped jacket – it shines!), and digital formats October 19th via Tankcrimes.
 
For CD preorders go to THIS LOCATION where the record can be nabbed for a cool $6.66 for a limited time. For vinyl go HERE and for digital purchases, go HERE.
