While the world is trying to move away from the grip that the virus has on it, Doodseskader (“death squad”) is tightening theirs with an iron fist. ‘Meat Suit’ is their second ballistic assault and last before the release of their debut record ‘MMXX : Year Zero’, which will be released on December 11th on Isolation Rec. (via Evil Greed in Europe and Deathwish Inc. in USA).
After their first single ‘Lepers’, with ‘Meat Suit’ they show a different side of their sound with a haunting and ominous hip hop inspired start that evolves in yet another barrage of sludge punishing. The massive sound that comes from just these 2 guys is immense and on they showcase both their clean vocal harmonies and Tim‘s frantic screams:
DOODSESKADER (“death squad”) is the new brand of sonic terror from the minds of Tim De Gieter (Amenra, Every Stranger Looks Like You,…) and Sigfried Burroughs (Kapitan Korsakov, The K., …). After 16 years of friendship, the pair have joined forces to carve a barbarous sound like no other.
Seamlessly blending the punishing nature of sludge and metal with elements reminiscent of 90’s grunge and hip hop, the aptly named DOODSESKADER successfully create a sound that is far bigger than their modest instrumentation.
Their first record ‘MMXX : Year Zero‘ offers an unsettling yet satisfying glimpse into their brutal and unforgiving universe. Sonically existing in the same realms as Code Orange, Death Grips, Ghostemane, Show Me Your Body and Xibalba, they offer a new take on this style with their tasteful inclusion of melody amongst the calculated chaos.
Recorded & mixed at Much Luv Studio (Amenra, Brutus, Throane) and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker), this 26-minute debut marks the arrival of the band in monumental terms and we’re really looking forward to hearing all they have to offer…
