Orbweaver - Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon

Written by Kevin Page.

Artwork by Jeannie Saiz

I've never seen an album title and artwork so indicative of the final product on display as we do here.

If Hate Eternal, Gigan, Gorguts, Ulcerate and Obscura had a gangbang on Miami Beach while tripping on acid, this is the love child they would spawn. A trippy psychotic dissonance that grooves and burrows into your brain, grabs hold and makes you think, "how can something so OUT THERE feel so memorable?".

Lead by the twin guitar attack of Randy Piro (ex Hate Eternal/Gigan) & Sally Gates (ex Gigan), this 5 song EP takes you on a 30+ minute space journey you never thought could be so warm and cuddly. Interspersed with just the right amount of intergalactic weirdness (think 1970's sci fi horror), which allows to you catch your breathe and cleanse your palette, I can only hope for more unreal escapes from this outfit in 2014.

  1. It's the rhythm! If you can bang your head to it, you'll probably remember it.

    Side note: The artwork is pretty cool; I didn't know that was done by the guitarist from Shroud Eater.
