Following the release of their abrasive debut EP Amen, DEATH ENGINE made a brutal entrance in 2013 with a couple of European tours – a string of infernal outbreaks that have little in common with your average live show.
The now four-piece from Lorient, France spent most of 2014 working on their debut album Mud to be released on Throatruiner Records, which was once again recorded by Amaury Sauvé at La Senelle and mastered by Sylvain Biguet.
Behind their ascetic, less-is-more work ethic, DEATH ENGINE’s sound remains evasive – oscillating between dark, desperate noise rock and metallic downpours of petrifying violence, bleak shoegazing guitar work and gigantic industrial dirges, cathartic climaxes and merciless tribal-ritual rhythms that could last forever. «Mud» features seven new tracks that deliver the coup de grâce, exploring new fields while still pushing the band’s trademark visceral tension to unreachable highs.
