THEORIES — featuring within its ranks current and former members of Samothrace, Skarp, and Book Of Black Earth among others — continues to grind their way into diseased hearts with the ravaging sounds of their Regression full-length, released earlier this year via Metal Blade Records. Tracked at The Red Room and The Boiler Room with producer/engineer Derek Moree (The Sword, Pelican, Minus The Bear et al) with mixing and mastering conducted by Visceral Sound’s Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), the record reaped the hails of critics globally.
“Regression is a honed, utterly off-the-wall experience that is a blast to listen to from both a technical standpoint, and one that’s just looking to rage… Those into death metal or grindcore will find THEORIES much akin to bands like Misery Index, Cattle Decapitation and Pig Destroyer.” – Metal Injection
“THEORIES is a band that knows how to let an idea form, shape it, and then kill it in lieu of sewing odd parts together without envisioning what the final form will be… These are songs and grind at the same time, and that’s what puts this one on a pedestal amongst not only other grind bands at the current, but also their tech-ier, death-ier labelmates. Sleep on this at your own peril…” – Last Rites
“Regression is not only a superbly performed assault on your senses, but more importantly, one with more substance and memorable moments than you will find on most records within the genre.” – No Clean Singing
Regression is available NOW via Metal Blade Records: metalblade.com/theories.
