LISTEN: Raspberry Bulbs – Finger Bones

Off new LP, Privacy, due next week on Blackest Ever Black

Blackest Ever Black are putting out the third album by New York hardcore outfit Raspberry Bulbs next week. Privacy comes barely a year after their previous full-length on the label, Deformed Worship, and is the product of Marco del Rio’s five-piece tacking their love H. P. Lovecraft and Arthur Machen to their scouring metal-flecked punk. So abrasive is new track, ‘Finger Bones’, which the label have kindly given us for a first spin above, that del Rio’s vocal assault "is he contemporary obsession with ‘connection’, exhibitionism and peer approval" is but a rabid, indiscernible howl in a dingy cavern, but the rage seeps through, buzzsaw guitars condensed with glorious efficiency onto their four-track. Pre-order the record, out on November 17, here, and listen to ‘Light Surrounds Me’ also from the album below.
