ENABLER: Entire La Fin Absolue Du Monde LP Playing At Stereogum

ENABLER‘s sophomore LP, La Fin Absolue Du Monde, will inundate the masses in just days, set for unleashing on Tuesday, May 27th.

A cooperative release between NYC-area based The Compound and the Bay Area’s Creator-Destructor, La Fin Absolue Du Monde is a thirty-six minute assault, barely harnessing ENABLER‘s most diverse and well-executed material to date, and is yet another of the band’s releases in homage to director John Carpenter’s arsenal of horror/sci-fi masterpieces. Tracked by Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings (Expire, Northless), produced by Hotchstetler and the band’s founding guitarist/vocalist Jeff Lohrber, and mastered by Steve Austin (Today Is The Day) at Austin Enterprises, the album’s raw, organic delivery matched with their frantic, torrid energy showcases some of Lohrber’s slickest signature riffage to date, thunderous undercurrents from bassist/vocalist Amanda Daniels and a driving pulse delivered by drummer Ryan Steigerwald (The Ox King, Ringworm).

Now only one week out from its street date, Stereogum is streaming ENABLER‘s La Fin Absolue Du Monde in its entirety. The accompanying text in part states the album “is their most textured, assured, and satisfying release to date.” It continues “The songs found on La Fin have the fury and leanness of tough-guy hardcore and the stomp of d-beat, but the dexterous guitars and anthemic hooks of ’80s thrash. It’s jolting, physical music, but there’s a compelling emotional core that reveals itself in the melodies and especially in the vocals… and once revealed, takes hold.”

“GET READY TO HAVE YOUR FACE RIPPED OFF… RPGs are less destructive than this shit.” – MetalSucks

“Often tagged as d-beat hardcore, it doesn’t really matter how you categorize them; just know that Enabler is INTENSE.” – Lambgoat

“…got a bit of noise-rock influence, no coincidence since Today is the Day’s Steve Austin mastered the record.” – Pitchfork

“The style of music they play may seem hectic but it’s quality musicianship and very true to their own sound. Loud, in your face and and constructed with care.” – Headbang Or GTFO

“This is an achievement to be studied and poured over by lesser bands for years to come. A strong contender for album of the year…” – Wonderbox Metal
