Driven by chemical despondency and the liberation of low-end audio scum, Nashville-based gruesome twosome BLACK TAR PROPHET has confirmed that their pending second LP will see release via D.I.Y. noisemongers Domestic Genocide.
Bearing a noxious brew of fuzz and misery-powered fuckcrush akin to Bongzilla, Buzzov*en, Weedeater, Noothgrush and the like, yet void of any vocal contributions, it’s pretty obvious from opening note to crushing closing of every track what the instrumental act is focused on; playing purely pummeling auditory filth with corrosive drugs coursing through it all.
Since their 2011 convergence the duo BLACK TAR PROPHET has soiled the lands with a rash of demo releases, and in 2012 released both a one-song/forty-two minute album called Note To Nod, and a split with Atlanta act Crawl, with a lineup shift happening the same year amidst the plethora of recordings coming into existence. They’ve endured tours of the Southern US states, and have tore up local venues with countless regional acts including Order Of The Owl, Backwoods Payback, Before The Eyewall, Crawl, Gorgantherron, Ponykiller, Motherplant and many more. The band will focus on intoxicating more audiences in the live setting over the rest of 2013 as they conjure and capture the material for their new full-length which will see release in early 2014 via Domestic Genocide.
In the meantime, BLACK TAR PROPHET will continue to bring the pain live. The newest batch of tour dates will begin this Friday, June 21st as the band begins burning through clubs across through ten cities in Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Georgia. On August 24th they’ll take part in Doom At The Beach II in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with Halmos, Crawl, Dead Southern Bishop, Heathen Bastard, Snake Oil, Greenseer, Grim Creeper, Compel, Tripping The Mechanism and more. Additional tour dates will follow as they’re confirmed.
