As All Hail The Void — the Southern Lord debut from Milwaukee-based metal/hardcore crossover outfit ENABLER — nears North American release this Tuesday, July 17th, today Blow The Scene is streaming in its entire album to satisfy your craving for scathing tunes. Go forth and kill AT THIS LOCATION.
ENABLER have just returned home after a month on the road as part of the massive Southern Lord package tour with labelmates Burning Love, Martyrdöd, Black Breath and more. The quartet’s set throughout the tour pulled heavily from All Hail The Void, crushing audiences with their pulverizing new hymns.
Coalescing energetic and dynamic elements of hardcore, punk, crust and death metal into their own brutal brew, ENABLER have amassed a fanatical fanbase through last year’s Year One CD, multiple EP’s and split releases with Drainland, Ambassador Gun and Yautja and more over the last few years, not to mention the countless regional live shows, tours and festival appearances. Recorded and engineered by guitarist Greg Thomas, All Hail the Void surges with the most enraged talent from this destructive outfit to date, unwavering in its 35-minute rampage.
“With an infectiously potent concoction of crusty metal, punk, and dashes of hardcore, Milwaukee’s Enabler have just delivered one of 2012′s best albums.” – Blow The Scene
“All Hail the Void is the kind of metal album where multiple traditions are honored all at once… it’s an album where it all comes together so well that it’s worth enjoying in its own right as much as it prompts a listener to think of everything that went into it.” – All Music Guide
“…exactly the type of hardcore that I dig – fierce riffs and high energy mixing with well written hooks that shows the band actually has some writing skills rather than just being able to play fast and scream loud.” – Popdose
