Converse Rubber Tracks x MetalSucks 2015 Preview: Organ Dealer
Later this month, ten unsigned bands will visit a Converse Rubber Tracks facility in either Brooklyn, NY, or Boston, MA, where they’ll lay down some jams at one of Converse’s completely free, state-of-the-art recording studios. And as if that wasn’t cool enough, bands at the Brooklyn Converse Rubber Tracks will work with producer Will Putney (The Acacia Strain, Suicide Silence, Exhumed), while bands at the Boston Converse Rubber Tracks will work with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Torche).
MetalSucks held an open application process in July for bands to apply, then Axl and Vince worked with Will and Kurt to choose their five favorite bands for each city. We’ll be previewing each of the selected bands in the weeks leading up to these recording sessions, so you can get a taste of what’s in store for ya! You can check out all the previews so far here. Today, we feature New Jersey’s Organ Dealer.
How great are Organ Dealer? Well, to paraphrase Thomas Edison: they’re so dope that they even make New Jersey look good. That is mad dope, yo.
On their latest release, Visceral Infection, Organ Dealer plunge the listener straight to the bottom of a Hell both physical and existential; choirs of screams suck you in and toss you into the spastic pit of diseased vipers that is the music. The band’s unique style of deathgrind is an intriguing mix of mechanical and organic, precise and chaotic, fearsome and fearful, tortuous and tortured. If AM, the sadistic super-computer from Harlan Ellison’s I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, listened to music, Organ Dealer is what he’d listen to. Be prepared for this band to reduce you to a great soft jelly thing.
But don’t take our word for it! Say farewell to your loved ones and check out Visceral Infection below. You can jam more of Organ Dealer’s music on Bandcamp.
