New York City-based experimental/noise metal outfit GNAW has completed the harrowing third album, Cutting Pieces, released on Translation Loss Records. Closing a four-year gap since their acclaimed Horrible Chamber LP (Seventh Rule, 2013), GNAW crawls forth from the gutters once again, dredging forth some of their most unnerving audio assaults to date on Cutting Pieces. The seismic atrocities and haunting intricacies on Cutting Pieces leave an instantly damaging, long-lasting impression, their cumulative decimation undoubtedly producing GNAW’s most cinematic terror to date.
Gnaw is a genre-smashing/noise/metal/doom band from NYC created by Alan Dubin after the dissolution of Khanate consisting of guitarist Brian Beatrice, multi-instrumentalist Carter Thornton, drummer Eric Neuser, sound designer Jun Mizumachi and newest member lap steel guitar player Dana Schechter. In addition to the traditional 4 piece rock format and string and wind instruments, Gnaw utilizes found sound, home made instruments, tweaked oscillators, synthesis and manipulated recordings.
"Weaving together elements of doom, drone, noise and sounds most unsettling, Gnaw create a unique sonic atmosphere that is soul-crushing and psychologically demanding. It would seem each of their releases gets more intense and outre than the last, with their third full-length effort, Cutting Pieces, sitting at the apex of this constant evolution." Svbterranean Magazine, Nov 2017, svbterranean.net
About their sophomore album, released by Seventh Rule Recordings, Cvlt Nation claims, “Few bands have managed to pull off such a seamless and triumphant splicing of doom metal, noise and industrial as GNAW have managed to do with this album, and in this extremely unique, surreal and particular world the band dwells in, Horrible Chamber represents hands down industrial doom’s finest hour of 2013.” www.seventhrule.com
The Wire magazine called Gnaw "a terrifying rock sextet whose blackened vision has enough dark energy to blot out the sun" and described Gnaw's debut album, This Face, to be "unsettling but vital listening".
