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.  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.  Shadows Swallowed The Flood is getting the wax treatment for good reason, offering a collection of genre-defying tracks mixing shoegaze, hardcore and metal into a cauldron of awesome.  On Strawmen, David Obuchowski shares the microphone with guest vocalist Zohra Atash, adding a soft, fleecy layer to the wall of crushing guitars.  If Trail of Dead listened to more My Bloody Valentine, you’d get something similar to Goes Cube here.  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.  Once those are sold out (and they will be soon), you can grab the yellow and orange splatter LP.  They’re both insanely cool-looking, so you win either way.  Listen to a track below and slide on through the ‘buy’ portal for the wax.
