Grizzlor, Connecticut’s most aggressively annoyed noise rock trio, return with their second LP, Hammer Of Life, out October 2 on Hex Records and the band’s own Hermit Cave imprint.
New Noise are proud to premiere the sixth track off the band’s upcoming LP, “Talking To Yourself,” below:
After a couple of years of downtime where the group began breaking in a new drummer and churning out their Coolness Factor 6 EP, the reinvigorated line-up found themselves in a writing flurry, which has resulted in the eleven new tracks on Hammer Of Life.
Guitarist/vocalist Vic Dowgiallo once again handled all the recording and mixing duties (via the band’s own Hermit Cave Studios) and arranged for the art and layout for the record. Hex Records has once again jumped in to handle production and distribution for this assault on humanity.
Grizzlor has not strayed from their mission to carpet bomb away the stress of daily living in society with loud, abrasive, and riff-addled noise rock with warped and irritated vocals. Song titles such as “I Don’t Like You,” “Live Negative,” and “Death By Wetsaw” ought to give some indication of their modus operandi.
Comparisons to the likes to early Melvins, Drunks With Guns, Weedeater, and Deadguy would not be out of place and are in line with the general vibe of misanthropy, self-isolation, and disappointment with society in general.
