METALSUCKS TO RELEASE THE BINARY CODE’S SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF
Our number one priority here at MetalSucks is to mercilessly rip into bands we think are terrible, even when they don’t necessarily deserve to be teased. But a very close second priority is to promote bands we think are awesome. And sometimes, those bands aren’t signed (yet).
Once such band is The Binary Code. If you’ve read this site for awhile, you know we have a lotta love for New Jersey’s premiere unsigned genre-benders. You also know that sometimes we get ambitious, and decide to, say, do an industry poll to see which albums have been the most popular this century, or have everyone who writes for the site review the new Metallica album on the same day, or actually get a review up when we say we will.
And thus, feeling ambitious about trying to promote an unsigned band we love, we had a crazy idea: let’s do a digital-only release on MetalSucks for Suspension of Disbelief, the new album from The Binary Code. And so, on December 15, we are going to do just that.
Now, let’s be clear: we’re not trying to be a record label, and we have no illusions of getting rich off this release – in fact, it’s entirely possible that this will be the first and last time we try something like this. But The Binary Code are a band we really love and believe in, and we’d heard some rough mixes of the album and really thought that the music was something special. And so we decided to try and help put new music out there in the world for once, instead of just being professional appreciators (or detractors, as is so often the case). We’re in that rare position where we can try to get TBC’s music to the public, and so we’re going to do just that.
So mark December 15 in your calendars. Suspension of Disbelief is a kick-ass album, and we’re thrilled to be involved. We hope you dig it as much as we do.
