LOINCLOTH SHARES “BESTIAL INFERNAL” VIDEO;
FINAL LP PSALM OF THE MORBID WHORE OUT NOW THROUGH SOUTHERN LORD
Virginia/North Carolina-based instrumental metal ministers Loincloth have shared an official video for “Bestial Infernal” the track hailing from their final LP Psalm Of The Morbid Whore, which was issued last week through Southern Lord.
PSALM OF THE MORBID WHORE IS STREAMING IN ITS ENTIRETY
Packing nine new instrumental passages of white-knuckled twists, and by-the-throat percussion, into a half-hour on Psalm Of The Morbid Whore. As with their 2012-released Southern Lord debut LP, Iron Balls Of Steel, Loincloth returned to Pershing Hill Sound in Raleigh, North Carolina to record with Greg Elkins. Mastering by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Corrosion Of Conformity, Sunn O))), Obituary) at Audiosiege.
Loincloth is a culmination of years of worshiping at the altar of the riff and Psalm Of The Morbid Whore arrives with the promise of absolute pummel! Guitarist Tannon Penland and drummer Steve Shelton (Confessor) return with their twisted brand of instrumental metal on the forthcoming LP, this time around also enlisting the infernal hands of Tomas Phillips on bass, who collaborated with Penland in experimental outfit Gauchiste for their self-titled 2012’s release through Little Black Cloud Records. Penland, Shelton, and Phillips were joined by guitarist Craig Hilton who contributed towards the composition and on tour with Sunn O))) and more.
Psalm Of The Morbid Whore is out now through Southern Lord; find the vinyl and merch bundles via the Southern Lord webshop and Bandcamp .
Join Loincloth in their final hour of worship…
“the Southern Lord-backed instrumental quartet who specializes in impenetrably dense acrobatics marked by sinew, economy, and hypercomplex time signatures that consistently avoid baroque frills and cartoonish machismo.” – NOISEY
“The track is unusual for Loincloth because not only is it of epic length (just short of eight minutes on an album where the bulk of tracks never get past three), but it also finds the band experimenting with atmospheric vistas along with their pneumatic tightness.” – ALTERNATIVE PRESS
“Loincloth possess a sound all their own…The band’s sound on this record is a lot less frantic and opts for a more suffocating, rhythmically-jarring approach that locks listeners into a corner and strategically batters them with each and every note. It’s not quite as spastic, but it’s a great deal heavier.” – SVBTERRANEAN
“Confessor was great because it sounded like doom metal falling down a flight of stairs, but performed in a calculated manner. Loincloth takes that and ups the speed.”
