YOU SHOULD NOW BE THAT MUCH MORE EXCITED FOR THE NEW 1349 ALBUM
This is probably old news that I completely missed by not reading a press release carefully enough, but apparently Tom G. Warrior was a producer on 1349’s new album, Demonoir. Now, you should already be stoked that 1349 have a new album coming out – even if the album somehow sucks, these guys will have to tour behind it, and 1349 put on a really fun show. (And I recognize that this very grim band probably wouldn’t want their concerts categorized as “really fun,” but, y’know, I had a good time and maybe even smiled when I saw them live. Sue me.)
But I doubt the album will suck, and the presence of Warrior (or, ahem, Fischer) is that much more reassuring. Celtic Frost’s Monotheist was the shit, and honestly, I like Triptykon’s Title I Can Never Fucking Remember How to Spell Correctly even more. I’ve been cranking it a lot. It’s heavy, it’s epic, it’s atmospheric, and the production is top-notch. In other words: Tommy Boy is really on top of his game right now, and if he brought even just a wee bit of his mojo to 1349’s table, Demonoir will be that much better for it.
Demonoir comes out April 27 on Prosthetic. And if you haven’t yet read D.X. Ferris’ interview with Tom G. Warrior, you should go do that now. You’ll, like, learn stuff n’ shit.
