No Echo is now streaming “Turnaround King” from Oregon-based metallic hardcore outfit FOES. The track serves as the first single from the band’s impending American Violence 10” EP, being prepared for release through Glacier Recordings in April. Preorders for the record have also been issued.
American Violence was recorded and produced by FOES’ Sonny Daniels and Garrett Judkins at their own Doom Room Studios in Sunriver, Oregon. The material was sent to Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Integrity, Black Breath) where it was edited and mixed by Derek Leisy and mastered by Brad Boatright. The cover art was created by Judkins and Daniels with editing and digital design by Talor Bates at New Melody Art Design.
Offers Judkins in part on the new EP, “American Violence is an exercise in futility. A proverbial bashing of one’s own head against a brick wall. A wall that represents every obstacle to happiness and fulfillment. This wall is you, it’s America, it’s meaningless traditional values, and it’s the churches of man.This album was created with the intent to make the listener feel constricted, frustrated, and suffocated under the weight of it. A reflection of the actual feeling of being crushed by the constant pressure to adhere to a path that you didn’t choose and one’s own self-doubt about their place in a society that no longer cares.”
Writes No Echo, “If you fancy metallic hardcore of the chaotic kind, boy, do I have a band for you! Based out of Oregon, FOES cram a lot of frenzy into their arrangements, but it never feels forced. That’s not an easy thing to finesse, as you already know if you’ve been listening to this kind of music for as long as I have.”
