The brutalizing sludge/thrash act Lair Of The Minotaur trio rears its gnarled head once again in 2018; the band has just recorded a new EP and announced live plans for late summer.
Following an extensive hiatus sharpening the axes, the Gods have called Lair Of The Minotaur back to battle. The classic "road dog" lineup of Steven Rathbone (guitar/vocals), Donald James Barraca (bass) and Chris Wozniak (drums) gathered to record a new EP on Memorial Day weekend.
The as-yet-unnamed EP will be released in conjunction the band's performance at Scorched Tundra Fest 2018 in Chicago on Friday, August 31st at Empty Bottle. The performance will be an exclusive date for 2018 and will also mark the band's first show in five years.
Formed in Chicago in 2003, Lair Of The Minotaur has released four full-length LPs and two EPs through Southern Lord as well as the band's own label, The Grind-House Recordings, all interconnected concept recordings based on the bloodier tales of Greek mythology. The band has toured extensively across North America and Europe, crushing all in its path with a unique brand of heavy fucking metal that has been likened to being beat to death with a spiked club.
Watch for details on the soon-to-be recorded carnage to flow forth in the coming weeks.
