whaleheart Creative and unpredictable. Amazing musicanship. Demands your attention, like any Neurosis or Gorguts record. Favorite track: Before The Foal.

Barnie Mac Wow. This has managed to blow all of my expectations out of the water. The drum work is right up my wheel house. The production value is as insane as you’d expect from evans and boatright. Vinyl secured.

Ippocalyptica I do not normally like this particular combination of sub-genres, but when it works as well as Yautja have managed to pull off on The Lurch, the results are nothing short of…Predatory. It is almost as if the band are hunting down their prey in an unfair competition where they have superior weaponry and defensive measures, taking the skulls of their victims as trophies. This is loud, pummelling, grimy, heavy, and relentless, and no xenomorph, except for maybe a Queen, could withstand this! Favorite track: Catastrophic.

about

Nashville underground trio YAUTJA make their Relapse Records debut with their highly anticipated new album, "The Lurch". YAUTJA's new album amalgamates metal, punk and noise rock into a ferocious hybrid that has propelled them from the obscurity of the American South onto the international stage.

Recorded by Scott Evans at the legendary Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studio in Chicago, "The Lurch" marks another step forward for the innovative band.

From the opening roar of “A Killing Joke” and the ominous noise waves of “Undesirables” to the churning cannonade of “Before the Foal,” "The Lurch" conveys the personal frustrations and sociopolitical observations of its creators. “We’ve got our bubble of friends and artists and businesses, but you drive 30 minutes out of town and you see confederate flags or people wearing t-shirts that say, ‘Redneck Lives Matter,’” bassist/vocalist Kayhan Vaziri explains. “So there’s a lot of frustration there, and some the lyrics pertain to that.”

Elsewhere on the album, tracks such as "Tethered" and "Wired Depths," discuss the various technologies and systems in place befalling the great populace. Rampant displacement of local communities fuels Vaziri's opening screams in the track aptly titled “Catastrophic” - “Forced under society!”

Featuring members of several other musical projects including Thou, Coliseum, Mutilation Rites and more, YAUTJA's collective experiences across the underground and experimental subgenres drive their unique sound. The band's palpable malaise, malcontent, and sharpened edges are matched by the album's production - the attack of noisy, whirring guitars constantly veering on dissonance are met with a destructive, mangled low end, as they march on to some of the most creative drumming in the genre. "The Lurch" showcases a band that is daring, experimental, and unrelenting.
