FUTURE USSES – Track premiere
"The Existential Haunting"
Out September 14th via Pelagic Records
dabbled with various doom metal projects over the years, like BEREFT
FUTURE USSES takes small elements of what those bands do and magnifies them, combining the slow-motion crushing power of doom with the atmosphere and dense harmonic tendencies of INTRONAUT.
Drums and guitar were recorded at Clearlake Audio with Josh Newell (INTRONAUT, CYNIC), Derek Donley (INTRONAUT, BEREFT) and bass with Jon Nunez (TORCHE), all in Los Angeles. Mixing was done by CONVERGE’S Kurt Ballou at God City Studio.
FUTURE USSES lavish guitar sound is built around live guitar loops, „whichpresents a whole set oflimitations but alsovirtually endless opportunities“, Sacha Dunable comments. „Thebeautifulthing about making aninstrumental recordis thatyou’renot obligatedto imposeany specific literalmessageontothelistener,but rather to concentrateon setting a vibethat canbeinterpreted or personified naturally throughthepower oftheir own imagination.”
FUTURE USSES have played a number of West Coast shows this spring with bands like DEAD MEADOW, WHORES, SUMAC and HELMS ALEE, and will head for a European tour is in the making for the fall of 2018.
