New Orleans metal misanthropes HAARP will release their new studio offering, “Husks”, on September 18 through Housecore Records. The follow-up to 2010’s “The Filth”offers up three tracks of crushing, post-apocalyptic dirge.
“Husks” was recorded at the University of New Orleans Performing Arts Center, Fountainbleau Room 7011, and Nodferatu’s Lair by DOWN/ex-PANTERA frontman and Housecore owner Philip H. Anselmo, engineered by Steve Berrigan and Nathan Weidenhaft and mastered at Visceral Sounds by Scott Hull.
Comments the band in a collective statement: “With ‘Husks’, we’ve maintained the sound we developed over our last few releases while adding some new elements and showing some additional influences.”
“Husks” track listing:
Due to unforeseen events which occurred late in the summer of 2005, members of various disbanded projects came together to forge HAARP. Featuring a collective of New Orleans grindcore, punk, and metal scene alumni, HAARP embody the murk, decay, and oppression associated with their home city. HAARP‘s music is a visceral wall of low-end sound; its lyrics a journey through despair, hatred, self loathing, and aggression.
