As Chicago’s “sons of sleaze” BONES prepare to release their aptly titled fourth album, Vomit, through Disorder Recordings in October, Invisible Oranges is today hosting an exclusive premiere of the record’s lead single, “Death Sentence.”
BONES unites drummer/vocalist Joe Warlord (Usurper), guitarist Carcass Chris (ex-Usurper), and bassist/lead vocalist Jon Necromancer (Contrition, High Spirits, ex-Usurper). Arriving with their most in-your-face release to date, Vomit sees The Windy City’s filthiest trio continue their signature blend of death, thrash, and black metal on cuts like “Beware Of Ghouls” and “Noose,” while also venturing into sludgier elements on the title track and ripper “Tower Of Skulls.” Drummer Joe Warlord even treads in early Neurosis territory on the tribal drum heavy instrumental, “Retch.” While these elements are truly new territory for BONES, overall, the band relentlessly sticks to the roots of their tainted peers in Autopsy, Coffins, Nunslaughter, and the like.
Vomit was tracked over two days at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio by Jon San Paulo (Shellac, Pelican, Neurosis) and one day at Hypercube Studio with Sanford Parker (Voivod, Darkthrone, Leviathan). The album was then mastered by Collin Jordan at The Boiler Room (Macabre, Eyehategod, Ministry) and completed with gruesome artwork by XNA Casperson (Dawnbringer, Zuul) and design by Eva Flora. Nick Hernandez (Dysphoria, ex-Kommandant) provides guest vocals on the closing song — a cover of Van Halen’s “She’s The Woman” — which was recorded just days before Eddie Van Halen’s death and will be a CD/Bandcamp exclusive track. Prepare to defile your eyes and ears… Vomit is the grossest album of 2022.
BONES’ Jon Necromancer writes with the “Death Sentence” premiere, “The music of this one was what I hoped would happen if half of Slaughter and half of The Varukers wrote a song together. A gross main guitar riff with me and Joe trying to push things into the sicknessphere. Carcass Chris delivers a killer lead in this one. His guitar tone really shines here. Lyrically it’s just about being hung or shot by a firing squad. As one does…”
Invisible Oranges writes, “…BONES is traditional and filthy death metal in the old Midwestern tradition. Think Master, Funeral Nation, etc. with a thick splattering of Motörhead swagger.” Of the new single the review describes, “‘Death Sentence’ brings to mind a Speckman-fronted Thin Lizzy, an ancient death metal monster waking up with a splitting hangover.”
Deploy BONES’ “Death Sentence” first through Invisible Oranges now at THIS LOCATION.
