Tomorrow evening, the twisted noise merchants in New York’s beloved GNAW will lay waste to Belgium with their harrowing odes of tension, terror and torment. From there, the crude collective will march on to France where they will join unholy forces with the experimental sound serpents in Italy’s OvO for an eight-date incursion of audio indecency.
The sonic disassembly will continue upon GNAW‘s Empire State return at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar on May 8th where the unit will deafen non-believers alongside The Body, Whitehorse and Theologian. Then on May 16th GNAW will crush the dreams of the hopeful and the damned as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Fest in Queens alongside Tim Hecker, Napalm Death, Gunplay, Wolf Eyes, Bastard Noise, Lubomyr Melnyk, Skullflower, Okkyung Lee, Clipping and more!

The menacing anti-creation of Alan Dubin (Khanate, Old, O.L.D.), Carter Thornton (Enos Slaughter), Jun Mizumachi (Ike Yard), Brian Beatrice and Eric Neuser, GNAW will be expelling hymns from their recently unleashed Horrible Chamber full-length. A jolting, spiritually abrasive exercise in noise-scorched, audio torment for fans of Khanate, Gnaw Their Tongues, Locrian, and open-face surgery, on Horrible Chamber GNAW manufactures gnarly, nerve-wracking sound orgies where the cumulative sensations of dread, trauma, wrath and repugnance crash into a disturbingly cathartic state of ominous, audio disease. Horrible Chamber was recorded at Seizures Palace by Jason LaFarge (Swans, Akron/Family, Khanate, Angels Of Light), mixed by Brian Beatrice at audioEngine and mastered by James Plotkin (OLD, Scorn, Khanate, Khlyst etc), with additional elements recorded by Beatrice, Dubin, Thornton, and Mizumachi in various chambers.
Horrible Chamber is currently available via Seventh Rule Recordings. Order your copy today at THIS LOCATION.
“A psychosexual mood piece – sometimes a bleak doom metal dirge, sometimes bleary noise, sometimes 12 minutes of analog darkwave,…The Eyes Wide Shut piano drags it all the way to the dungeon.” – Spin
“… a fascinating listen.” – Decibel
“Part horrifying ambient-noise-terrorism and part doom-metal slash and burn…” – Noisey
“Horrible Chamber is the only album I’ve been scared to listen to again… it is a stark, intimate, frenetic work of raw emotive power and sonic precision. Enter if you dare.” – Unhinged Music
“…a hideous juggernaut or aural evil that is the musical equivalent to venom coursing through your veins.” – SputnikMusic
