San Diego, California-based hardcore/metal act PISSED REGARDLESS presents their volatile new Imperial Cult LP, the record to see release this Friday through Creator-Destructor Records. Preceding its arrival, No Clean Singing is now hosting an exclusive advance stream of the album.
The Imperial Cult LP was recorded between March and July of 2019 at Sunsick Studio by Alex Jacobelli, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Integrity, Nails), and completed with cover art by Curse Of Face.
PISSED REGARDLESS guitarist Sean Walker offers,
“Imperial Cult was written through the later part of 2018 and into 2019. We took a different approach when we were writing the material in the sense that we wanted it to have a different feel and flow. Without drifting to far from our previous releases, we really wanted to experiment and not hesitate when it came to trying things. The five of us are extremely stoked to share Imperial Cult with the world.”
No Clean Singing’s detailed review of the album includes,
“The album displays razor-sharp execution, generally turbocharged, thrash-fueled pacing, and a powerhouse sound. It’s almost relentlessly explosive in its impact, and mercilessly vicious. The band certainly have no interest in showing mercy to your neck, because these songs are also ruinous sources of sore-neck syndrome, loaded with the kind of punishing rhythmic hooks and strands of infectious (though bleak) melody that will get your head driving hard and fast.”
Imperial Cult will see release this Friday, October 18th via Creator-Destructor, with two different colored vinyl variants; the first pressing limited to 250 copies. Preorders are live at the label webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE.
Having released a demo and two vicious 7″ EPs since their formation in 2013, Imperial Cult marks the first full-length offering from PISSED REGARDLESS. Featuring ten tracks of unrelenting thrash-fueled hardcore, the band has expanded upon their darker influences to create an album that feels thematically cohesive and unapologetically heavy. Imperial Cult is a record primed for fans of Ringworm, Integrity, No Warning, Darkest Hour, and labelmates Light This City.
Watch for tour dates and more from the band to be issued in the weeks ahead.
