I let Hail! Hornet slip past me a while back. I’m not sure how or why I let something that involves “Dixie” Dave Collins of Weedeater and Troy Medlin of Sourvein. I mean, I love both of those bands. Does someone want to tell me why this was never pointed out to me? I mean, this just isn’t fair. I can’t find stuff if no one brings it up. I really had no idea what this was when it showed up in my promo list, but as I looked into it, I found out that ex-members of King Travolta and Sourvein had teamed up with the voice of Sourvein and the head honcho of Weedeater/Buzzov•en back in 2006. What the fuck? Really? I should have been told about this long ago. But no! No one wanted Gnarly to know about this. I had to find out on my own. I can understand why I never heard the first album, it came out on a label that, as far as I can tell, only released one other album that I know (Soilent Green’s Pussy Soul) but I guess there is no excuse for me not knowing about Hail! Hornet’s Relapse Records debut Disperse The Curse. I guess I didn’t surf enough sludge blogs or pay enough attention to the press releases. So I guess it is my fault. That sucks, well, now I know about them, and I am fucking ecstatic. It’s really a killer record and it should be enjoyed by all. If you are a lover of sludge, please go and get this beast. I haven’t gotten a chance to review it yet, but I will try to get to that as soon as I can. Disperse The Curse came out last Tuesday (July 19th). Check out a new track after the jump.
