First play of video from band's new album, co-written with Merzbow

If you're into the idea of Hades shrouding the world in an acid-bathed veil of darkness, then here's something for you. Maryland and Pennsylvania hardcore wrecking unit Full Of Hell have joined forces with noise doyen Merzbow for a new album, aptly titled Full Of Hell & Merzbow. Masami Akita helped develop the noisier leanings previously strafing FoH's sound, as exemplified on last year's Rudiments Of Mutilation. It's out on November 25 via Profound Lore and has already been teased with 'Gordian Knot', below, and now we've got the pleasure of unveiling the video for 'Blue Litmus', which opens with the kind of scrambled feedback that makes you feel like your gums are being scraped, before giving way to the band dealing out a stiffer mantle-bound bout of nihilistic pummelling, before a reprise of that digital needling. Watch above.
