Spammerheads – Tar Blood / Cement Skin [Soil Records]

| | , , ,

Still immersed in the recent celebration of its fourth anniversary, Soil Records continues its recording activity with the announcement of a new vinyl reference, which also stars one of the projects that participated a couple of weeks ago in this event that brought together international figures such as Terence Fixmer and Phase Fatale, who played live as Vague Macanique, or the Colombians Damaged Clock and Magnum Opus, with their powerful live and dj set, or Demian Abraxas with his heartbreaking concert under his alias Pandemian, to which we must also add the dj sets of SOJ, the owner of Soil Records, of Orco, owner of Fill-Lex Records, or the set of Industrial Complexx, who collaborated as the official media of this event. In addition to all this, we could also enjoy the live performance of the Valencian duo Spammerheads, with an overwhelming concert, with a totally punk staging, in which they allowed us to listen to the new material that they will release soon on Soil Records.

Recently announced by the label, Spammerheads will be on the next Soil Records vinyl release. This Valencian couple, formed by Ana and David, have been active since 2019, and in just 3 years their sound evolution has gone through different states and processes, always influenced by personal experiences and social context, until reaching the sound of the recent album. A rough and harsh sound that stages all their previous musical influences until reaching the current style.

Tar Blood / Cement Skin opens with The Big Machine Never Wrecks, a track commanded by a suggestive and hypnotic rhythmic sequence that is perfectly complemented by the heart-rending vocals. With Until the Damage’s Done the album rises in intensity, as the cadence is faster, the synthesised elements are more prominent and the vocals remain on the same plane in terms of dynamism. Driving Nowhere closes side A with the power materialised from vocals to the rest of the elements, with a powerful bass line and a sonic environment full of details. Noire de Blanc examines a different musical point of view to the rest of the tracks, as firstly they refuse to include vocals, their rhythmic structure is a combination of binary and syncopated rhythm, and their sound and harmonic conjugation is lysergic. Dear Hangover closes the release in a forceful and explosive way and with a voiceover that mixes subversion and ritualism.

Release date: September 15th, 2022.
