Having recently brought together SONANCE and TORPOR with their split LP, which has so far received a warm reception and is a true contender for album of the year, we are excited to reveal that SONANCE have yet more up their sleeves with a new EP, ‘Blister The Maw’.
These six new tracks were recorded alongside the songs that went towards the SONANCE/TORPOR SPLIT. Whilst usually tending towards bone shattering heaviness that comes from heavy bass, distorted guitars and gargantuan drum sounds, ‘Blister The Maw’ sees the band focusing on a cinematic style that draws from their ambient/noise tendencies. This is not to say that they completely eschew their more ferocious sound, hinting towards hardcore and sludge on side B, and as ever featuring a tasteful level of string orchestration. Each output from SONANCE goes to reaffirm that they are one of the most exciting underground bands the UK has ever produced.
