WAILIN STORMS: Revolver Magazine Streaming “One Foot In The Flesh Grave: Debut LP
Nov 18 2015
The debut LP by Durham, North Carolina-based doom punk outfit, WAILIN STORMS, titled One Foot In The Flesh Grave, is now playing exclusively at Revolver Magazine as the record is prepared for its release this week via Magic Bullet Records.
Led by ominous, blues-driven vocals reminiscent of Samhain and early Danzig, brooding quartet, WAILIN STORMS merges doom punk and harrowing rock into something fans of TSOL, Social Distortion, Murder City Devils, Laughing Hyenas, Hot Water Music, Pussy Galore and Clockcleaner alike will find themselves immersed in. Recorded and mixed at Warrior Sound, by Al Jacob and mastered by Carl Saff, One Foot In The Flesh Grave is completed with artwork by Bruno Guerreiro of Decibel Magazine.
Invisible Oranges reported, “While there’s some metal and hardcore in the WAILIN STORMSsound, it mostly simmers. There’s strength in simmering: one cooks a lobster by slowly raising the heat… Just when it reaches a fever-pitch, it ends. WAILIN STORMS don’t overstay their welcome. The way vocalist Justin Storms caws over the din reminds me of the two most recent Wovenhand records.” American Aftermath’s 8/10 review called the album, “a mighty doom punk opus that will be forever stuck in the minds of all who listen to it, continuing, “This 33-minute effort features southern fried sludge colliding head on with doomed blues and hazy-eyed punk nuances. It is a sound likened to Samhain’s deathrock if it were hijacked by The Murder City Devils and more recent Wovenhand material…. a catchy, doomed opus that serves as the essential first step to WAILIN STORMS eventual greatness.” Cvlt Nation posted, “One Foot In The Flesh Grave sounds like a morbid plate of hot grits covered in zombie blood. This band knows how to write songs that channel the gothic past of the south while still keeping the ghost of Robert Johnson happy. Have a dark fucking open mind – let the WAILIN STORMS blow right in, and you will not be disappointed!”
Revolver Magazine is now exclusively streaming all of WAILIN STORMS’ One Foot In The Flesh Grave at THIS LOCATION.
Magic Bullet Records will release One Foot In The Flesh Grave on all digital platforms and both red and clear vinyl pressings on November 20th. Vinyl preorders are available HERE and digital preorders are available HERE.
