NECK OF THE WOODS: releases “Vision Loser”; Band Announces SXSW Appearance + Tour Dates With Misery Signals As The Annex Of Ire Release Day Nears Pelagic Records
"…it kinda sounds like if you took the proggy post-metal of Pelagic’s flagship band The Ocean and injected it with the death-y metalcore of prime-era BTBAM." BrooklynVegan
Vancouver, British Columbia-based progressive death metal collective NECK OF THE WOODS premiered "Vision Loser" from. The track comes by way of the band’s imminent new full-length, The Annex Of Ire, set to drop March 20th via their new label home of Pelagic Records.
Captured by producer/engineer Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung, Brutus etc.) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, the relentless seven track offering capitalizes on NECK OF THE WOODS‘ already ravaging recipe of rabid, methodical, and absorbing extreme/death-tinged metal.
Issues the band of the latest sampling of the record, "An absolute ripper of a tune, ‘Vision Loser’ highlights the influences of our recent ex-bass player turned full-time guitarist, Ron Holloway. With the usual NECK OF THE WOODS crew in his corner, the songs really push the envelope of the modern metal sound. Lyrically focused on understanding, processing, and overcoming anger, this song comes in hot on all fronts."
Adds BrooklynVegan, "it kinda sounds like if you took the proggy post-metal of Pelagic’s flagship band The Ocean and injected it with the death-y metalcore of prime-era BTBAM."

The group’s complex and dynamic sound along with their resonating live performances helped the band quickly rise to prominence. Following the release of their self-titled EP in 2015, they took to the road making appearances at multiple Canadian festivals including both Calgary and Armstrong Metalfest. Summer 2016 saw them accompany metalcore legends Misery Signals on the Canadian leg of their 2016 tour as well as embarking on a headlining tour of Western Canada. It wasn’t long before they caught the eye of UK label Basick Records who welcomed them to their roster in Spring 2017. Their debut album, The Passenger, released in September of 2017, sparked candid debate amongst metal critics across the globe; its diverse sound defies categorization while delivering a blend of aggressive attitude, emotive expression, progressive intellect, and modern flair.
"NECK OF THE WOODS have honed a technical, multi-genre approach to metal that sounds like the product of Devin Townsend working with Converge. Ripping, serpentine riffs and brash breakdowns make it impossible for NECK OF THE WOODS to lose your attention." – Sled Island Music & Arts Fest
