Pet Brick Featuring Iggor Cavalera Announce New Album, Stream “Primer”
Liminal, the new album from Petbrick—former Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera and UK-based producer Wayne Adams— will be released on September 23. They are streaming new song “Primer” now.
The noisy industrial track is a bit of a sensory overload—Cavalera’s clanging drums mesh with the spastic electronics in a way that creates a total cacophony. The album description lays out a thesis as to what Liminal sounds like and is inspired by:
“In a world hurtling towards new frontiers of horror on a daily basis, there’s precious little time for pause. For the self-respecting artist, the only reasonable solution is psychic warfare. Moreover, the only way to wage this is without compromise, with the least possible respect for thresholds or co-ordinates of any kind. Such is the terrain of Petbrick on the titanic and transformative Liminal.”
The album features guest appearances by Neurosis‘ Steve Von Till and Converge vocalist Jacob Bannon plus “doom rappers” Lord Goat and Truck Jewelz. Further explaining Petbrick’s sound, the release says:
“Here on their second album the duo of Wayne Adams (Big Lad/Johnny Broke) and Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Cavalera Conspiracy/Soulwax) lays waste to all or any constrictions in its path, dispensing an assault of vibrant catharsis that is as rich in atmospheric dread as sulphuric intent. Blending a vast sonic landscape with a relentless compunction to break the pain barrier, Liminal is a dizzying exercise in overdrive which can take in industrial abrasions, pulverising rhythmic drive, acid-damaged freakery, cinematic tension and balladic gravitas in disarmingly coherent fashion.
“Existing in a resolutely post-genre realm, Petbrick are a band quite comfortable both performing at the rave hoedown of Bangfest and amidst the riff-overload of Desertfest. This was reflected in the initial stages of this album’s gestation, with the duo finding themselves split between creating feral bursts of aggression and moments of psychedelic ambience. The balance between the yin and yang of their approach subsequently led to both the album’s diversity and its title.”
The album is out September 23 on Neurot Recordings but you can watch the colorful video for “Primer” now.
