WHITEBELT IS BACK ON THE MENU!
Happy June indeed! Had to mark the last stand-alone preorder with something special: the complete works of Vessels Cast From Crippled Hands!
You might now then from their incredible half of the Spiderbear split with Destroyer Destroyer - but did you know they have like 50 ADDITIONAL songs as well, and they all go bonkers hard? Just a half hour of frantic noodle scenester nonsense. It’s impeccable.
This discography is just the peak in terms of just wonky techgrind. If you’re a screamo fan who likes your shrieks mathy, Vessels is the ticket. I don’t think I can say it any better than this quote:
“Wow, this is some jangly techgrind right here. From what I can gather, vessels cast in crippled hands put out two releases, broke up, and now, half a decade later, their discog has been released. To really appreciate these guys, you've got to be more than just a casual fan of technical sounding stuff. In fact, I can see a lot of people being turned off by them. It'll be your loss."
This has been one of the longest releases in the making for me. Tyler and I have been going back and forth on this for over a year, and now seems like the perfect time to strike! It checks every box and I promise this is some of the most complete WV styling and material you’ve seen!
For this one, Art had to be done byBen Hoagland. It’s WV aesthetic turned up to 11. The pink is an homage to the amazing digital discography out out by Epileptic Media. I think it’s one of the most stunning ones yet!
Audio was once again handled by Zach at Third Eye Studios. You’re not going to believe how good these sound.
