The noisy, sludgy, genre-baiting miscreants behind Boston, Massachusetts’ THE PROSELYTE have returned with their most cohesive and menacing effort yet. Ungodly screams and melodic harmonies square off as the band weave a web of anger and beauty inspired in part by the sonic dichotomies of THE MELVINS and TORCHE, concocting a heady rush of stoner doom, Seattle grunge, and canny melodicism. Stream the whole thing below. Physical vinyl will be up shortly.
Now a trio, this Boston band have toured the states numerous times and are gearing up for a busy 2014 with a new EP entitled Our Vessel’s In Need. They are pleased to announce that upstart Chicago label Gypsyblood Records will handle the limited vinyl pressing & digital version while artwork will come from Billy Crisafi. The record was engineered by their own Alec Rodriguez at New Alliance Audio and mastered by Nick Zampiello and Rob Gonnella at New Alliance East.
The EP was recorded during the February 2013 blizzard that pummeled the northeast, leaving them and a team of videographers literally trapped inside New Alliance Audio. The result is a balance of sonic solidarity and frightful cabin fever.
THE PROSELYTE is:
Nicholas Wolf-vocals, guitar
Alec Rodriguez-vocals, drums
