Corrections House - Hoax the System / Grin with a Purpose 7" (2013)
Mike Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Sanford Parker (Buried at Sea, Minsk), and saxophonist Bruce Lamont (Bloodiest, Minsk) make atmospheric industrial metal; unsurprisingly, it's fantastic. Old-school (read: 90s-sounding) drum machines, massive industrial soundscapes, deranged Neurosis-y guitar work, and the pure distillation of disgust that is Mike Williams' voice. Tension builds and builds but never quite releases, instead continuing its expansion until it becomes an all-encompassing, almost physical presence. Somehow, my band recently got to open for Corrections House, and they fucking KILLED it.
P.S. They have a full-length, too, and I highly recommend picking it up. And here are their music videos.
One big happy family with a passion for bloodshed
