TRANSIENT: Debut LP Out Now On Six Weeks; Full Album Playing At Blow The Scene

Portland, Oregon grind killers TRANSIENT have this week victoriously unleashed their self-titled debut LP via Six Weeks Records. The band, featuring members of Shitty Weekend, Murmurs, Black Hole Of Calcutta and Landmine Marathon, recorded the album at Soundhouse Studio with Brandon Fitzsimons (Wormwood), resulting in a caustic, earthmoving, punk-fueled grind attack, carrying out sixteen acts of abrasive and enraged socio-political angst in just over twenty minutes, which has been championed by journalists around the world over recent weeks.

Blow The Scene is helping impose TRANSIENT’s damaging anthems upon you all by hosting an exclusive stream of the whole LP RIGHT HERE.

With the Transient album now available to the public on CD and LP via Six Weeks, the band this week let loose the course for their self-booked upcoming US tour in support of the release. With many of the venues still undeclared at press time, the more than month-long routing begins in Seattle on October sixth, with thirty-three more cities lined-up to take subsequent beatings through the second weekend in November. Along the tour, TRANSIENT will throw down as part of this year’s three-day Southwest Terror Fest with Kylesa, Godhunter, Sacred Reich, Landmine Marathon and more on October 10th, 11th and 12th in Tucson, Arizona, followed by the two-day celebration of Six Weeks Records’ twentieth anniversary alongside Magrudergrind, Coke Bust, P.L.F., Slight Slappers, Capitali$t Casualties and a ton more closing down the tour on November 8th and 9th in Oakland, California.

“… Transient make their mark as a force to be reckoned with amongst grindcore’s elite… an unrelenting concoction of poignant grindcore combined with crusty metallic leanings…” – Blow The Scene

“…no frills, there’s buried bursts of the Gothenberg death metal sound buried towards the end. Also given their home base, there’s a hint of crustiness…” – Pitchfork

“Although this band has members well-traveled with other acts… it’s still a pretty impressive feat to pull off a debut recording with this much maturity behind it. This isn’t a band feeling out their sound. They know their sound and it’s the sound of riots breaking out on city streets while governments topple and anarchy becomes the rule of the day.” – Metal Insider

“…their self-titled debut full-length is the aural equivalent of getting beaten by six guys with aluminum baseball bats. Basically, they kick ass… Transient are masters of the grind genre. 4.5/5” –

“…that’s not to say that the act is just resting on their speed and intensity. There’s breakdowns which put together elements of hardcore with some tinges of metal. This fusion of these working parts together is what makes Transient’s attack sound alive…” – Cvlt Nation
