Prisoner “Putrid | Obsolete”

Estimated Shipping Widget will be displayed here! (with custom color)

In the six years since Richmond VA quintet Prisoner released their first LP, "Beyond The Infinite", the entire world fell apart. Already somewhat apocalypse-curious, the band decided to ride the current wave of doom as far as it would take them, adding synth player Adam Lake in order to bring a greater emphasis on noise, samples, and electronic sound textures. The result is their new full-length, "Putrid | Obsolete", which layers the nightmarish crust/hardcore and blackened metal of their earlier material in a thick coating of harsh industrial noise and gloom.

Floating amid a polluted sea of atonal samples and ominous synth soundwaves, crunching guitars lay down brutal 100mph riffs over a powerful rhythm section crunch, even as multiple demonic voices unleash anguished roars. With apologies to TS Eliot, this is the real way the world ends: amid an unrelenting wave of industrial metal/punk brutality.

"Putrid | Obsolete" was produced, recorded and mixed by Ricky Olson at the Ward (Enforced, .GIF From God) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
