RIYL: And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, Mastodon
Label: Greenway Records
Brooklyn metal trio Goes Cube have returned for the third and final album, and they want to go out big. Â Since 2003, they’ve been churning out post-metal skull shakers, but besides a 7″ release in 2009, they haven’t released any music on vinyl. Â Shadows Swallowed The FloodÂ is getting the wax treatmentÂ for good reason, offering a collection of genre-defying tracksÂ mixingÂ shoegaze, hardcore and metal into a cauldron of awesome. Â On Strawmen, David Obuchowski shares the microphone with guest vocalist Zohra Atash, adding a soft, fleecy layer to the wall of crushing guitars. Â If Trail of Dead listened to more My Bloody Valentine, you’d get something similar to Goes Cube here. Â It’s a unique inclusion in the vast metal canon, and another exciting release for Greenway Records.
There was a ‘toxic waste’ variant that sold out almost instantly, but the ‘charred earth’ colorway is still available, and they’re limited to just 50 copies. Â Once those are sold out (and they will be soon), you can grab the yellow and orange splatter LP. Â They’re both insanely cool-looking, so you win either way. Â Listen to a track below and slide on through the ‘buy’ portal for the wax.
