BRUCE LAMONT‘s debut solo album, Feral Songs For The Epic Decline, was released via At A Loss Recordings in January, to which he’s received endless praise from international media outlets and open-minded fans abroad. After touring on the material from the album sporadically over the past year or two, including several shows at this year’s SXSW festival (one of which was an impromptu set with Eyehategod’s Mike Williams), most recently LAMONT completed two back-to-back European tours this Spring; the first with Keelhaul and the second with Macabre, Birdflesh and Rompeprop.
“This music flows, creating more of a mood piece without feeling restrained by the need to be ‘metal’ – and that seems to be the point. 8/10” – Decibel
“…rarely if ever ‘metal’ but fascinating in its coupling of codeined-out jazz and Cash-indebted Americana.” – Terrorizer
“… the spaced-out soundtrack to some kind of indescribable psychological nightmare: less physical aggression but considerably more mental warfare.” – Alarm Press
“…his bravest, most personal-seeming and ambitious collection to date.” – Stereogum
“…a prog/dark Americana folk/space rock/psychedelic/kraut/electronic/tribal collage…” – Hellride Music
