Listen to a stream of the debut album "Sub Contra Blues" from Brighton, UK-based post-metal group ANACONDAS exclusively via UnderTheGun Reviews right now! The eight-track album, which was mastered by Russ Russell (Napalm Death), features brothers -- and former members of the English metallic hardcore act Johnny Truant -- Stuart (guitar) and James (bass) Hunter, along with drummer Tim Newman. Described as "crushingly heavy and unabashedly melodic and catchy all the at the same" by Ghostcult Magazine, "Sub Contra Blues" deftly showcases the band's so-called "slunge" -- a combination of sludge, shoegaze, and grunge.
ANACONDAS will perform a record release show next Thursday, Oct. 17th at The Shackwell Arms in London. Tickets will be available at the door, and two local bands (Art of Burning Water and Broken DC) will act as support.
"Sub Contra Blues," the artwork for which can be seen above, will be released on Oct. 15 in North America (Oct. 14 UK/EU, Oct.18 G/A/S). Stay tuned in the coming days for the premiere of the band's first music video!
