CRETIN FINISH RECORDING NEW FULL-LENGTH

Posted 10/2/06
CRETIN have completed work on Freakery, their forthcoming Relapse Records full-length.

Freakery is CRETIN's first album effort after a well received 7" Ep (Cretanic Grind Ambush) and was recorded entirely by the band (guitarist Dan Martinez, bassist Matthew Widener and ex-EXHUMED drummer Col Jones) at their Tillinghast Workshop studio.

Bassist Widener comments on the record, "I like to think of this as grindcore that people, anyone, can approach. It's music with no pretenses, humble music, honest. Sure, we wear our influences on our sleeves; we're downright obvious about it. If you don't want to go shirtless, Repulsion, Slayer, and Terrorizer are good influences to wear, I think. It's the exact opposite of all that new wacky avant-grind and art-grind, and the polished, machine-perfect, premeditated, nu-grind." Widener continues, "It's inspiring that we did this all ourselves, total underground old-school DIY-style, and it sounds really damn good."

The final track listing for Freakery is "Tooth and Claw", "Tazer", "Daddy's Little Girl", "Uni-Tit", "Cook the Cupcake", "Cockfight", "Object of Unity", "Creepy Crawlies", "Walking a Midget", "Uncle Percy", "Dirt Eater", "Mannequin", "A Fowl Fetish", "Making Roadkill" (featuring a guest solo by REPULSION guitarist Matt Olivo), "The Yawning God" and "Profane".

The e-card for Freakery, featuring sneak peeks at album art as well as the tracks "Tooth and Claw" and "Walking A Midget", can be accessed at www.Relapse.com/ecards/Cretin.

Freakery is scheduled for an April 18 North American release. The record will be released throughout the rest of the world on April 24th.
