GNOD side project GNOD (R+D) are back with the third release in an ongoing series

GNOD's Paddy Shine and Chris Haslam are back with a new release from their GNOD (R+D) offshoot. Following on from two previous cassette releases on Tesla Tapes over the last year, the Sounds of Cobra label will oversee the release of Vol 3 from the pair, from which you can stream a five-minute excerpt of one of the four tracks above.

The excerpt sees Shine and Haslam combine drones with loop-driven, industrial atmospherics. It builds gradually, layers of percussion gathering pace as a distant vocal enters the mix just past the three-minute mark.

GNOD (R+D) is described as "a platform to research, develop and expand on sound environments as well as collaborators for the future workings in their main band." Vol 3 sees them turn in four long-form pieces which the label describe as "21st century ritual music," and were recorded while on tour through Italy in November of last year.

Sounds of Cobra will release Vol 3 digitally and on vinyl on January 11.
