Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth

From the press release:
“Keeping up a long-held tradition of bringing forth some of the heaviest music from the darkness of the Pacific NW, Seattle’s legendary Tad Doyle (formerly of TAD, Hog Molly), delivers his strongest songwriting and playing to date with his newest band Brothers of the Sonic Cloth. This powerful trio of musicians, with Tad on guitar/vocals, veteran bass player Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki), bring together the collective and extensive rock histories and experience of the three members in the worlds of punk, hard rock and metal. The trio’s work on their self-titled debut offering – recorded at Robert Lang Studios and Tad Doyles’ own Witch Ape Studio in Seattle and mixed by Billy Anderson – is welcomingly unfamiliar, splicing serrated riffs through chilling post-punk drumming and hulking compositions which blow soulfully hot and desolately cold. Their long-form pieces present the kind of mature ideas and expansive progressions which outpace the listener’s short-term memory and lead you off the map; familiar landmarks like sludge, post-metal and rock all but disappear over the horizon. The record begins with an ominous eruption of riffs forged from deep within the earth entitled “Lava” and continues on this path throughout; a mammoth, relentless spirit on a timeless journey. Authentic and authoritative, this album is as much a persistent thudding body punch of sonic destructive force as it is a thoughtful statement of awareness and the inescapable raw condition of life.”
Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth is out February 16 on Neurot Recordings; check out “Lava” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
