WE ARE BEASTS!
Miami rock trio, Shroud Eater, offers free download of debut EP
MIAMI – Shroud Eater, South Florida’s DIY grunge/stoner rock trio, is offering a free download of their debut self-titled EP, in anticipation of the release of their debut full-length record, ThunderNoise, due out this fall. Inspired by all things dark and dirty, including 70’s heavy metal, and 90’s grunge/stoner rock, the three-song EP can be downloaded at: www.raig.ru/AT_shroudeater.asp
“We had always seen the EP as a way to distribute our music for free to as many people as possible – it’s a basic primer on who Shroud Eater is as a band, and hopefully it left people curious and interested in hearing what we can really bring to the table,” states guitarist/vocalist Jeannie Saiz. “For the ThunderNoise sessions, we have some surprises up our sleeves, and are positive that the finished album will rock your ass off.”
The EP was recorded last year at Relax, Bro! recording studio, in the band’s hometown of Miami, and it was mixed and mastered by Jonathan Nunez. Artwork comes courtesy of Shroud Eater’s own Jeannie Saiz.
“The EP is a sludgy, doom-a-riffic slab of bottom-feeding metal that could have been reared in the mucky Florida swamps alongside alligators and slithery snakes.” – Noisecreep.com
“Two ladies and one dude kick up a mighty hurricane in Miami. They’re like if Kylesa cut out the prog and played straight-up noise rock.” – Decibel Magazine
“There’s also something very South Florida in them in the vein of Cavity and Black Cobra. The opening demonic sizzler ‘We Are Beasts’ (I feel the same way) and ‘Vesuvius’ are excellent compositions, and Ms. Saiz’s vocals are soul-damaging, which is a good thing in this context.” – Miami New Times
Shroud Eater solidified their line-up in January 2009, sporting a sound of down-tuned, overdriven guitars, a thunderous rhythm section, and raw vocals of impassioned fury. After only a few short months, the band hit the Miami rock scene like a hurricane with the release of their debut EP later that winter.
Shroud Eater will once again head into Relax, Bro! this summer to begin recording their full length debut, ThunderNoise. The band will call on the acclaimed Nick Zampiello (Torche, Converge, Against Me) of New Alliance East for mastering. Stay tuned for more information!
