SO HIDEOUS, MY LOVE… Record Release Party
When: July 25th, 2011
Where: The Charleston
174 Bedford Ave , Brooklyn NY
w/ openers Risk & Toaster
The party will be in celebration of the band’s recently unleashed To Clasp A Fallen Wish With Broken Fingers EP (Play The Assassin Records). A tasteful mesh of post-rock leanings (Envy, Mono, Godspeed You! Black Emperor) and adventurous black metal (Wolves In The Throne Room, Celeste) with classical beauty (Arvo Part, Beethoven), To Clasp A Fallen Wish With Broken Fingers has been reaping critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Said Heavyblogisheavy.com: “Emotion pours out of every note as furious tremolo picking and string instruments paint somber bursts of melody under throaty and passionate screams and blasts.” Decibel Magazine called the band “…blackened classical for people who love the idea of blood dripping cellos played with inverted crosses,” while Exclaim added: “SO HIDEOUS, MY LOVE… are the most interesting and original heavy band you’ll hear in a while.”
The show will also showcase new members: Kevorikian drummer Danny Moncada and bassist Dan Galante. Moncada formerly played for NY death metal outfit Regain The Heart Condemned while Galante comes from Long Island grindcore thwarts, Lobster Apocalypse.
Commented guitarist Jack Marshall: “The Charleston show is our record release party and we’re psyched as always to play out live especially after the hardships and turmoil we’ve had to deal with getting this record done. We went through a couple of personnel changes this past year, so this isn’t only a showcase for the new EP but it’s also a chance to introduce everybody to the new lineup. The sound is the same but somewhat heavier and we’ve matured musically and lyrically a lot as a band since our first EP and last live show.”
