Magic Bullet Records’ Five Weeks Of 5IVE continues, as the label digitally reissues the entire back-catalog from defunct Boston riff/math/doom rock act 5IVE.
The 5IVE reissue series includes the titles 5ive, The Telestic Disfracture, The Hemophiliac Dream, Versus, and Hesperus, as well as the self-titled album from The Theory Of Abstract Light, a solo release by the band’s Ben Carr.
Following the re-release of 2000’s self-titled debut album, 5IVE’s second album The Telestic Disfracture now sees release. The album came out only a year later in 2001. Tortuga was the issuing label for both CD and LP formats and the band once again turned in six songs to comprise the album. While a lot of the riffing and stoner rock elements of the previous effort are intact, this is the album where 5IVE began incorporating more noise and experimentation into their work. The results are uniquely satisfying.
Personnel on The Telestic Disfracture was Ben Carr on guitar/bass/noise, Charles Harrold on drums, Mike Hubbard contributing guitar on the latter three of the six tracks and bass to the closing track as well, Andrew Schneider adding noise, and Jonah Jenkins taking vocal duties on the first two tracks. The album was recorded and mixed in March of 2001 by Andrew Schneider at New Alliance in Boston, Massachusetts, and mastering was handled by Nick Zampiello. Aaron Turner once again handled art duties for this album.
The Telestic Disfracture sees official digital release through Magic Bullet Records’ The Five Weeks Of 5IVE; stream and preorder the record HERE.
Five Weeks Of 5IVE continues with The Hemophiliac Dream as well as The Theory Of Abstract Light on September 8th, Versus on September 15th, and Hesperus on September 22nd.
