If a band chooses to name themselves after a moribund beautiful creature, their music had better be just vicious enough to bring about said near-death state or worse. Luckily for Georgia’s Dying Whale, this so happens to be the case with their frantic, gutter-spawned tunes.
Dying Whale‘s sound is a frenetic amalgam of post-hardcore, mathcore, sludge and others, effortlessly blending the styles into artistically flawed, dirty and vile blend. On their 2013 LP, Disorder, the band were much more playful with their sound – almost harking back to the early 2000s when post-hardcore flirted with angularity and more chaotic structures. On Last Moments of Misery, however, the band aren’t playing around anymore.
Georgian hardcore/mathcore trio Dying Whale have premiered a new track from their forthcoming full-length, Last Moments of Misery, over at Idioteq. The new track is titled “The Cloud I Hold” and it unifies sludgy grit with spastic tendencies. The band’s Matt Zagorski said the following of the new single:
Georgian chaotic hardcore outfit Dying Whale have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, Last Moments of Misery, at New Noise Magazine. Titled “One Final First Kiss”, the track is a maelstrom of sludgy grit and angular riff salad that builds into a dismal piano-led bridge, and further into a soul-sucking climax. Bassist/vocalist Matt Zagorski said of the track:
Georgian chaos bringers Dying Whale have announced their induction into the Nefarious Industries for the release of their new full-length album.
