Handshake Inc., the London, Ontario based label recently announced the signing of Italy’s TARAS BUL’BA, and the release of their forthcoming album “Amur.”
Here’s the official word:
Taras Bulb’ba play a unique blend of noise-inspired, metal-tinged, jazzy kind-of heavy, that is best described as ‘Extreme Jazz Terror.’
Their forthcoming album “Amur,” – the third for Italy’s Wallace Records, first for Handshake – features eight genre-bending, infectious tracks that fans of Dysrhythmia, Fantomas, and ‘On the Corner’ era Miles Davis will totally be able to relate to due to the extreme level of heaviosity present.
“Amur,” will be made available as a free digital download via Handshake Inc and Grindcore Karaoke on August 15th, and vinyl is set for early 2013.
