BUZZARD DUST to release debut LP this fall!

Sep 07 2017   

Super stoked to announce the release of debut LP of Richmond’s BUZZARD DUST!

A mangled mess of raw energy and pounding eardrums; this fall will see the debut full length from thrashing hardcore punk quintet BUZZARD DUST.  While relatively young forming in 2015 this Richmond, VA outfit have been cutting their teeth individually for the better part of a decade plus. A varied past with members spanning the spectrum of heavy, from black metal acts; UNSACRED and KREIG; to weirdo-avant metalcore acts; PSYOPUS, THE HUMAN TIMEBOMB, and THE JEFFERSON PLANE CRASH; to more direct punk hardcore of TRI-STATE KILLING SPREE.  An onslaught of break-neck speed paired with gut-tangling riffs, BUZZARD DUST creates a slight amalgamation of each members’ past endeavors but never enough to sway off the main goal of a vicious hardcore punk assault.

BUZZARD DUST’s debut effort was recorded the spring of 2017 at the Ward Studios in Richmond VA by Ricky Olson (UNSACRED, PRISONER) with mastering handled by Carl Saff.  All art courtesy of Richmond comic veteran James “Barf” Callahan.  BUZZARD DUST are set to unveil their debut record  October 13th.  To celebrate the band will be holding a record release show the following day at Strange Matter with multiple East Coast jaunts to follow in November.

EARTHLING announce sophomore full length track listing, art, and upcoming tour plans!

May 04 2017   

From the opening chords of their sophomore full length, ‘Spinning In The Void’, it is clear that Earthling has reached beyond the confines of tradition to carve their own niche in the world of extreme music. Charging with a Motorhead like speed, the band cleverly twists and turns through spiraling darkness. Primitive yet visionary, Earthling returns with a devastating follow up to to their acclaimed debut, 2013’s Dark Path.

While songs like, “Howl” and “Obedience & Decay” reveal a bleak, apocalyptic tone, as a whole the album represents a well versed group with a firm grasp on a promising future. Cutting their teeth on tours with the likes of Inter Arma and Baroness, Earthling has fully captured the ferocity of their live shows in these six songs.

Spearheaded by a savage guitar sound and cutthroat vocals, ‘Spinning In The Void’, is harnessed by a strong, classic approach. Recorded and mixed by Chris ‘Scary’ Adams (Black Tusk, Corsair) at Old Dominion Studio in Scottsville, VA and mastered by Mikey Allred (Inter Arma, Yautja) at Dark Art Studios in Nashville, TN, Forcefield Records is excited to unleash this long awaited record from one of it’s heaviest hitters.

‘Spinning In The Void’ will be released July 7th, 2017 on vinyl and digital. Artwork from Matt Slime (Coffin Dust, Bat) on reverse board jackets and uncoated 300 gram inserts. The first pressing consists of 300 black, 150 red smoke, and 150 on black in clear with silver splatter. The band will be playing regional record release shows July 3rd, 4th, and 5th in Harrisonburg, Richmond, and Raleigh, respectively with a summer East Coast tour to follow.

Track listing –
1- Clay In the Hands Of Evil
2- Howl
3- Obedience & Decay
4- Spinning Void
5- The Helm
6- Seed of Anger
