Head Molt "Struggle Jams" (reissue) on Anti-Everything


#AE89. Originally released by Flish Records in 2008 (#Flish-008). 
Now available for free on bandcamp. https://headmolt.bandcamp.com/album/struggle-jams



Recorded live March 16th 2008 in Hampton VA.
Gary Stevens: scrap metal, effects / Leah Peah: scrap metal, effects / Joshua Hickey: vocals, effects / Cover art by Travis Miller AKA Lil' Ugly Mane.

"Pretty disturbing stuff, this...
I love the way the cover art clashes with the musical content here. This is far from your typical noise release. Very interesting textures as a background wall of sound without being numbing. More like a scratching sound made from muffled vocals. Occasionally "lyrics" are heard, but it's more like an industrial version of black metal without drums, bass and guitar. Nice one!" https://www.discogs.com/Head-Molt-Struggle-Jams/release/5000329
