Forming back in 2007, Washington State’s audio-terrorists THE DRIP set out to transform the legacy of NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER and BRUTAL TRUTH into a modern and uncompromising grind assault of face-ripping blasts and sonic brutality.
Seizing the attention of grind-advocates GRINDCORE KARAOKE, their S/T debut and ‘The Wasteland’ EP soon established their reputation as the Northwest’s fastest hate-mongers. A series of high-octane live assaults only furthered their infamy among regional audiences.
2014 sees THE DRIP proudly welcomed into the Relapse roster, with A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics set for an international release on DATE. A vicious display of skull-crushing, barbaric grind produced and engineered by none other than label mate Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, it’s an absolute necessity for all self-respecting grindfreaks and extreme music aficionados worldwide. For those quick enough to grab a first-pressing, an unmissable etching will be found on the B-side.
THE DRIP will be touring the West Coast this summer in support of A Presentation of Gruesome Poetics. Be there, if you dare.
Here’s what the blast-friendly press have said about ‘TITLE’ thus far:
“If you like your grindcore, metallic and overflowing with seething aggression, then The Drip should please you for quite some time.” - Operation Grindcore
“Furious gut stabbing grind that pummels your anus until it collapses on the floor.” - Headbang or GTFO
