RIYL: Swans, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Drudkh and Khanate
Aggressive music (in some cases the term is used lightly) can sometimes lose its focus. Blatant studio trickery, flirtation with dance music and an overall lack of creativity have left some to wonder if this is where the genre is headed. Thankfully, there’s bands like Northless.
Few artists can claim to have both received coverage from NPR as well had a sandwich named after them at Kuma’s Corner, but such is the case with Milwaukee’s Northless. Since their inception in 2007, the band have honed their brand of patiently crushing metal, coming together initially as a two-piece before appropriately doubling the band’s membership in 2009. Since then, the band has released two stellar full lengths via Gilead Media / Halo of Flies Records (2011’s Clandestine Abuse and 2013’s World Keeps Sinking) as well as a handful of splits and EPs, further developing their song craft and musicianship.
Triple Eye Industries are happy to be working with the band, who’s strong work ethic, exceptional live shows and commitment to quality have helped make them one of the most unique voices in modern metal. Their forthcoming 12″, Cold Migration, is set to release in March 11, 2016.
