Official press release:
Eolian Empire’s latest deck-wrecking mess, and (sort of) first title to bust beyond their Portland barriers, is ready for heckling and streaming in its bruising entirety as their (We’ve Got) Fiends In Low Places: Heavy Vibes Internationale cassette has been officially paroled.
Featuring more than fifty minutes of abuse culled from the gnarliest the underground gutters of rock and roll’s back-alleys around the globe have to offer with fifteen exclusive tracks from fifteen acts, Fiends In Low Places is the sequel and companion compilation to the (We’ve Gotta) Keep Our Heads: Heavy Vibes from Portland, Oregon. Yet instead of focusing on Portland-based acts as with the label’s twenty-nine previous releases, Fiends In Low Places’ contributions were culled from friends playing off-the-wall heavy music in overlapping scenes internationally. This gnarled calling card compiles contributions from Throat (Finland), Arabrot (Norway), Health Problems (U.S.A.), MoE (Norway), The Great Sabatini (Canada), Dead (Australia), Bastard Of The Skies (England), Hombre Malo (Norway), Same-Sex Dictator (U.S.A.), Teeph (U.S.A.), Cyberne (Japan), Timekiller (Brazil), Elephant Rifle (U.S.A.), Batpiss (Australia), and Meadows (England), the comp is a wild trip through twisted noise rock, bludgeoning sludge, psychotic metal, blackened hardcore, and damaged punk, with each act’s warped worldview in full effect.
Let all fifteen movements from (We’ve Got) Fiends In Low Places out of the pipes early by streaming the beast alongside orders for the digital download and the cassette — limited to 333 cool-kit copies — RIGHT HERE.
