New York harsh experimental metal act Gridfailure will release a new full-length titled "Irritum" as a digital release via Bandcamp on February 23rd ,with a physical version to follow. The twisted project marks its two-year anniversary; the first of many new titles in its third year. The track "It Feeds On Negative Energy" is now streaming at Bandcamp, which can be accessed in the player at the bottom.
While contributions from a wide cast of talented collaborators are a major part of many Gridfailure releases, others are executed solely by creator David Brenner, which is the case on Irritum. A savage dose of Gridfailure's effects-soaked powerdementia, "Irritum" attempts to manifest the dispirited tones and unwelcoming surroundings of the act's debut, "Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here." The album swells with vicious enormity and unnerving creepout aura, "Irritum"'s scathing noise-driven dirges, maniac vocal wrath, and off-kilter rhythms culminate and deliver an inexorable sense of dread and paranoia with thirteen new tracks, totaling more than fifty minutes of lunatic rage. "Irritum" was performed, recorded, and produced by Brenner, utilizing an arsenal of instruments including guitars, bass, drums, keys, theremin, harmonica, and much more.
The track listing is as follows:
1. Aspirations Of A Hammer Killer
3. It Feeds On Negative Energy
4. Exorcised From The Possession Of Hope
6. L'alteration Du Sang
8. Haze Of Traumatic Recurrence
9. Grid The Impaler
10. Electrocution Baptism
