Incendiary – Crusade 12″ Reissue

Incendiary originally released their debut full length record, Crusade, in 2009 with Eternal Hope Records. This record was my introduction the band and the reason I wanted to work with them on future releases. It wasn’t long before the 523 copy pressing went out of print and we started discussing reissuing the record on Closed Casket, as Eternal Hope had since gone inactive. Years later, it is finally happening and this somewhat hard to find record will be available again on vinyl and for the first time on digital/streaming platforms . We teamed up with illustrator Chad Lawson to recreate the original cover and expanded the layout to a gatefold LP in an effort to capture the time period that this record was released. The official rerelease date for both vinyl and digital platforms on October 21st.

Be sure to see Incendiary at the following upcoming shows.

10/20 – Clifton Park, NY with Burn
10/21 – Cambridge, MA with Burn
10/22 – Montreal, QC with Burn
11/14 – Brooklyn, NY with Red Death, Manipulate and Separated

Recorded at Bricktop Studio with Andy Nelson (Harm’s Way, Weekend Nachos, Dead In The Dirt) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Obituary, Integrity), The Emptiness Of… bears ten brutalizing tracks, delivering the disastrously groove-laden attack of ETERNAL SLEEP’s death metal-fueled hardcore with crushing precision, showcasing the band’s wide array of metallic hardcore and grungy metal influences, concentrated into a bruising, groove-fueled attack.
Decibel Magazine’s new review of The Emptiness Of… includes, “If you, like no one ever, have wondered what ’90s metallic hardcore would sound like through the dual filter of grunge and ‘holy terror’ hardcore, ETERNAL SLEEP is here to field questions and offer a primer on this unusual combination.” Lambgoat issues on The Emptiness Of…, “it’s heavy. ETERNAL SLEEP‘s down-tuned and thundering riffage should appeal to fans of Coalesce, Damnation A.D., and even the Melvins.” And Stereokiller championed the album with a 4/5 review which boasts, “This record hasn’t left my rotation since I received the advance copy, and is frequently blasted with my windows down while simultaneously mean mugging shitty drivers. This record gets my blood boiling, and I’d imagine that’s what the sole mission is for The Emptiness Of….”

ETERNAL SLEEP will join Nails, Full Of Hell, and God’s Hate on tour in June with shows in Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Richmond confirmed. Beginning directly afterward, ETERNAL SLEEP will continue touring, this time heading out to the West Coast on a headlining run with support with support from Blistered for the trek.

Criminal Instinct – Summer release and stream

This summer we will be releasing the debut full length from CRIMINAL INSTINCT. The 10 song record features all new material and will be available on Vinyl, CD, Cassette and Digital formats. Following northeast dates with Foundation and King Nine, CI flew to Van Nuys California to record with Taylor Young at The Pit Recording Studio. The effort was mastered by Brad Boatright of Audiosiege while the artwork and layout was handled by Atlanta artists Keet and Well Fed.
We have decided to launch two new songs from the record as we just approved test presses for the LP and are eager to let people hear new material. We have pressed a small run of these two songs on cassettes which will be available this weekend in Atlanta and on our webstore.
