We’re excited to announce our allegiance with American one-man harsh/post-industrial deconstructor 8 HOUR ANIMAL , as we prepare the release of the act’s bludgeoning new full-length LP “Resigner” , slated for release on LP/MC/digital formats on August 6 2021 worldwide via Sentient Ruin.
To coincide with the album’s announcement, respected underground punk/alternative/experimental publication NO ECHO.net has revealed the opening track “Almost Free” calling the track “nightmare fuel” , with marked “Wax Trax meets Earache Records-like vibes”. They further elaborated that “the sound of 8 Hour Animal is a jarring one. A one-man operation whose stylistic approach invites everything from industrial to black metal to power electronics to, well, a host of other harsh points between.”. You can read their feature and check out the track HERE .
The sound of dissolving reality, shattered nerves and unraveling hope, "Resigner" is a nerve-wrecking full length offering of vitriolic post-industrial annihilation that both celebrates and re-imagines the imperious deconstructionism and experimentalism of glorious acts like Controlled Bleeding , :Wumpscut: , Wolf Eyes , Godflesh , Skinny Puppy , Skullflower , Ministry , Brighter Death Now , Incapacitants , Coil and beyond. Through a masterful transfiguration of disorienting atmospherics, oppressive soundscaping and raw intensity, on "Resigner" 8 Hour Animal blurs beat-driven electronic industrial, scorching power electronics, raw punk and black metal, blackened metallic drone, dark ambient, and pure noise into an hallucinogenic and caustic forty-plus minute mechanized nightmare of pure post-industrial chaos and oblivion.
