"DARKLY PSYCHEDELIC AND METICULOUSLY CRAFTED DEATH METAL FROM CURRENT AND FORMER MEMBERS OF THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, THE FACELESS, JOHN ZORN & MORE," is the absolutely accurate description of this new death metal group.
John Frum is not just one person, but a band, crafted by the minds of Matt Hollenberg of John Zorn and Cleric on guitar; Eli Litwin of Intensus, Deveykus, Knife The Glitter on drums; Derek Rydquist (Ex-The Faceless) on vocals; and Liam Wilson of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Starkweather on bass.
The conception of this band and their debut album comes from 6 years of carefully crafted music and "auditory disturbances" that give a new name and sound to death metal. Any fan of the genre should check out the album teaser here if you want a taste of what the band has to offer. With its fatalistic and morose arrangement, each track will serve as the darkest psychedelic trip music could ever take you on.
"A Stirring In The Noos" will be available on CD/LP/Digital and is scheduled for release May 12th. Pre-order the record on the band's website where you can also stay updated on more info and music. Fans of death metal definitely won't want to miss this one!
