TREEDEON: Berlin Sludge/Rock Trio Releases New Track “Blankapitation” Via Terrorizer

Terrorizer Magazine has released the track, “Blankapitation,” the new single hailing from Berlin-based trio, TREEDEON, and their Lowest Level Reincarnation LP, set for release via Exile On Mainstream.

Down-tuned, mean, and riding on a wave of undulating distortion, ‘Blankapitation’ weighs in heavy, but with eight songs delivering a full spectrum of sonic rock assault, Lowest Level Reincarnation is raw, rich in diversity and in your face, carved out of depression and channeled in to a maelstrom monstrosity of guitar, bass and drums.

Listen to “Blankapitation” at Terrorizer now at THIS LOCATION.

The LP’s closing track, “Terracide,” is also playing at The Obelisk HERE.

Exile On Mainstream will release Lowest Level Reincarnation in North America on April 7th. Stand by for stateside preorder links and more on the album in the coming days.

After the almost simultaneous demise of Germany’s noise-stalwarts Ulme and seminal crossover icons Jingo de Lunch, Ulme guitarist and singer Arne and Jingo de Lunch singer Yvonne formed an acoustic band named TREEDEON. Their first show was an acoustic set at 2012’s South Of Mainstream festival, stepping up to replace the disbanded Ulme, and out of the death of two bands came opportunity, as shortly after, a second gig was booked at Berlin’s Schokoladen, where Kaeng-shell punisher Boomer pledged himself as the missing link by offering to play drums.

Songs were laid out, written, and rehearsed in a dark cellar, leading to the first TREEDEON demo being recorded and released in November 2013. The demo made very clear that the acoustic approach had been revised, overwhelmed by a new (but by no means surprising) monstrous Valkyrie of sheer heaviness, dueling vocals, and screams of emotional terror. A much louder rendition of TREEDEON played a first show in their local hangout, Franken Bar, while their second show brought them to the infamous Roadburn Festival, as part of Exile On Mainstream’s 15 year anniversary showcase. And what an impression they left! The digitally released demo began rolling around among dedicated punters and created quite a buzz for the band, culminating in an invitation to play the Stoned From The Underground festival in July 2014. From this gig on, TREEDEON rooted themselves very much in the conscience of lovers of noise, sludge, and all kinds of heavy pumping riffage. The band recorded at Studio Wong in Berlin throughout November 2014, putting together this, their debut album; Lowest Level Reincarnation.
