Tennessee’s instrumental sludge duo, Black Tar Prophet, have revealed the details on their forthcoming sophomore album. The nine-track album is entitled Deafen and will see a release on April 19th via Domestic Genocide. The album was tracked live with Max Otworth (Lysura, etc) at Sonic Hex Recording Compound, and the rawness definitely shows through. Bassist Greg Swinehart comments:
When we tracked this album, we planned on keeping a strong, raw, live sound. We didn’t want an overproduced sounding record. We don’t want to be the same shit as all the other bands out there. People like us or hate us. And fuck it either way. The backbone behind Black Tar Prophet is hate mixed with a big fuck you. We’re not trying to jump on any bandwagon. We play what we like. And whatever genre it is, we don’t care. We are happy working with Domestic Genocide and hope to provide more noise before 2015, book as many shows as we can, and stay active, as we have been the past three years.
