Miami’s brooding riff sorcerers Shroud Eater are set to release a 15 minute experimental noisy drone track entitled ":th:ree: :curses:" on Wednesday February 8, 2017 to coincide with a performance at the International Noise Conference in Miami, FL.
The release of :th:ree: :curses: is a drastic left turn from the usual doomy Shroud Eater fare; fuzzed out guitars, suffocating bass and bombastic drumming is replaced with meditative synthesizers and malicious intoning of curses over other-worldly analog echoes.
Primitive Violence will be handling the release on 50 cassettes, 25 of which will be considered limited edition packages which include an original art piece done by one of the band members while in hallucinogenic meditation of the track.
"If you’re having a really nice day, you might want to hold off. Or at very least prepare your psyche for a considerable turnaround in mood, because this is no mere dabble. In fact, if anything draws “:th:ree: :cvrses:” into a recognizable sphere for Shroud Eater, it’s the headfirst-dive, full-plunge they make into these atmospheric horrors. Boldness is nothing new for Saiz, Valentine and Sosa, and that goes back to the band’s earliest output in their formative 2009 demo, but there’s little they’ve done that would prepare the fanbase they’ve built for this turn. And that’s what makes it work." - The Obelisk
