SALVATION - SORE LOSER LP
We're back to work in 2017 with an amazing new full length from Chicago's SALVATION. Blending together elements of noise rock, punk, and grunge, SALVATION has cultivated a rare sound that is injected with strikingly inventive vocals and instrumentation. With their 2017 Forge Again Records nine-song debut LP Sore Loser, SALVATION further refines the sound found on their 2015 Cold Slither Tapes debut Royal Fucks. Like their previous effort, Sore Loser was recorded completely live, showcasing the band’s raw fervor and painstaking attention to performance perfection and detail. The vocals are raw and commanding, seeming to simultaneously invoke both aggression and agony. The rhythm section remains the strong, sludgy backbone of the album, driving each song forward as the vocals ebb, flow, and meander throughout. Sore Loser was recorded by Joe Gac at Kildare Studios and mastered by Carl Saff with cover art by Smith Smith. The first pressing of the LP is limited to just 311 copies on random colored vinyl. We suggest you check it out and pre-order it immediately! https://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sore-loser
COLD SLITHER TAPES
Given the state of the record pressing industry these days (long story short: it takes forever to press records courtesy of the ever-growing bubble), we decided we wanted to find another way to keep pumping out quality new music so we've started things up with our new cassette imprint label COLD SLITHER TAPES. We'll continue to press quality vinyl records, but they might not pop up quite as frequently. Cassettes, on the other hand, turn around quickly, sound great, and give you a nice cheap way to check out new bands. We have awesome tapes from Chicago's SALVATION and Detroit's CASUAL SWEETHEART, Hamilton, Ontario's THE INFLATION KILLS, and Ypsilanti's DECISIONS available right now for streaming/download/purchase/whatever else HERE. You can also visit us at www.coldslithertapes.com which for now just takes you to the Bandcamp, but eventually will take you to a website when we get around to making one. Or you can stream/purchase through the Forge Again Bandcamp above.
