Holy Roar Records Announces Return Of Slabdragger

January 11, 2016


Slabdragger return with their space odyssey ‘Rise of the Dawncrusher’on 2xLP/CD/DL February 26th 2016.

Another great release from Holy Roar Records is due this year.

Three years in the making and almost five years on from their debut album ‘Regress’, Slabdragger are finally back with ‘Rise of the Dawncrusher’. Between drummer changes, recording difficulties, collapsed lungs and other personal problems, this is a record that has (slowly) come kicking and screaming into existence.

Has it been worth the wait? Well – when have Slabdragger ever let you down? Containing four sprawling, epic tracks of ever-innovative, cosmic  doom/stoner/sludge, as well as the urgent, frantic lead track ‘Evacuate!’ – this record clocks in at over an hour and truly feels like the journey it portrays. Rise of the Dawncrusher is a sci-fi adventure set in the distant future and you should expect more than a few elaborate twists and turns that will leave Regress behind with space debris in its wake.

Recorded and mixed at The Cro’s Nest Studio by their very own six string strangler and gravelly growler Sam Thredder, mastered by the total dude that is Steve Austin of Today Is The Day, the album will be wrapped in some incredibly epic cover art by comic artist and writer Jimmy Pearson. This combination makes for a total immersive experience in fantastical heaviosity.
