PREMIERE: Buckshot Facelift – “Ascend to Descend”
Get your first taste of Ulcer Island. Mmmmmm…. bile-y.
The Toilet is no stranger to Buckshot Facelift. Dubya has written glowing reviews of this project featuring Artificial Brain‘s Will Smith, first with their full-length Living Ghosts of the North Shore and most recently with their spooktastic Buck at the Moon EP. The ‘Buck is back with a brand new LP titled Ulcer Island and if the first taste of the record, “Ascend to Descend” is any indication, it’s going to be a banger.
Will, the vocalist, offers some insight into the structure of the new record, “Ulcer Island is a concept album in which the narrative gradually moves from the oblique street level view into a dreamlike introspection, Ulcer Island‘s blend of grindcore, powerviolence, and death metal is arranged in a way that mirrors this transition as the album progresses.”
Check out “Ascend to Descend” below and prepare to throw ‘bows rapidly.
