FULL OF HELL Liberation Garden of Burning Apparitions; Full album stream available
Full Of Hell returns with their new album, Garden Of Burning Apparitions, released today via Relapse Records on CD / LP / CS / Digital. Order here and find the full album stream below.
Garden Of Burning Apparitions, a hardcore, grind and death metal genre blitzkrieg, sees the band develop the very elements that have propelled Full Of Hell to the forefront of extreme music for the past decade.
Produced by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Garden of Burning Apparitions also sees Full Of Hell adding new dimensions to their hellish landscape at high speed. The monstrous riffs of guitarist Spencer Hazard and bassist Sam DiGristine now have additional noise-rock influence, while drummer Dave Bland controls the rhythm section at lightning speed.
Lyrically, Garden of Burning Apparitions sees singer Dylan Walker explore (anti) religion, the impermanence of life, and the fear that comes with knowing death is inevitable. “Industrial Messiah Complex” pulverizes organized religion in less than 90 seconds, while Walker envisions the commodification of spirituality seen in America’s vast network of garish mega-churches and how these practices contradict true spirituality. Meanwhile, “Reeking Tunnels” rides a shrill noise rock riff through the sewers. It is a metaphor for the physical and mental space we are trapped in when we live in a perpetual state of fear and hate. Elsewhere, a justifiable ochlophobia propels the throaty death metal explosion of “Eroding Shell.” Lyrically, the song seeks to capture our fear of the violent and ignorant crowd – a scene seen far too often in this volatile era.
In the end, breaking Full Of Hell’s limits paid off again. “I think it’s good that we tried not to rank early on,” Walker recalls. “Because now, 10 years later, we have the ability to make any record we want, within reason, and people will follow.”
