  • “Reign in Bludd” praised from sea to putrid, stinking sea…

    October 9th, 2014

    India, the Netherlands, Missoula, Montana, even here in NYC…overwhelmingly positive responses coming from all corners.

    Pigs in the streets, but the streets belong to Bludded Head.

    Let it wash over you HERE.

    bludded head gillian

    A small sampling of the astute music journalism from around the globe which sings the praises of Bludded Head:

    “…a huge gain in expressive range over its predecessor, with quieter moments of minimalist dissonance—like claws on a dungeon floor—that only heightened the impact of the heaviest passages, where violently bowed strings battled bone-crushing chords and blasts of howling, atonal feedback.”

    “..stripped down, primitive and expansive, it’s like some new, feral Americana.”

    “..an atomic drop of sludge metal shoegazery bound to make audiences bang their heads with the plodding energy of patients in a malarial sanitarium ward.”

  • Bludded Head “Reign in Bludd” release & west coast tour

    October 5th, 2014

    Pre-orders for the new Bludded Head 12″ EP, “Reign in Bludd”, can be accomplished RIGHT HERE.

    Limited edition, 180g vinyl, deluxe UV matte jackets, printed inserts, and purely analog in every step of the recording and production processes, with a download included.

    reign in bludd LP

    Recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago at the completion of an East Coast tour and in the midst of frontman Nevada Hill’s battle with life-threatening cancer, “Reign in Bludd” picks up where “Bludded Death”(released earlier this year via SGG) left off in terms of desperation and, ultimately, true catharsis.

    Still present are the contributions of Hill’s young daughter Gillian in both concept and presentation and, on this record even more so than on previous efforts, that presence carries an undeniable weight given the circumstances under which these songs were conceived. Time is stretched further, space is torn farther apart.

    Included is a cover of “Pea”, by our friends in the beloved and legendary NYC group Codeine, a song that means even more to us now knowing the relationship Nevada has had with it throughout his treatments.

    Bludded Head’s finest moment captured on the perfect format.
    ————————————————————————————————————————
    Bludded Head will be hitting the road in support of Reign in Bludd next week so acquaint yourself with the dates below.

    **ATTN LOS ANGELES AREA RESIDENTS: We need a new venue for October 13 as Handbag has become unavailable. Get in touch! HEPA/TITUS featuring Kevin Rutmanis of The Cows, Melvins, Tomahawk, Teenage Larvae, etc are also on the bill.

    Prizehog Low Freq Extend

    After getting to know our Portland via San Francisco brothers and sister over the years, experiencing mind-blastedness from multiple live encounters, and falling hard for their LP on the legendary GRAVITY RECORDS as well as their self-released work, we were..elated…when, while hanging out at TOSHI KASAI’s recording studio out in California, we decided to put together a very special Prizehog release on SGG.

    The title implies what you’re getting into with this beast. Head over to our store for more specs and to grab a copy before they’re gone.

    Speaking of Prizehog, they’re playing the excellent TOTAL FEST in Missoula this weekend along with WOOLEN MEN , Wolf Eyes, and a slew of others.
