Sydney’s 2-piece noisegrind purveyors’ thedowngoing are travelling south to unleash their ultra distorted cacophony of sound upon the unsuspecting masses of Melbourne this November in support of their latest EP. Watch out for their pessimistically positive attitude and ability to party harder than your average grind fan.
The self released, untitled mini-CD EP was recorded at the Brain Studios Surry Hills with Michael Taverner and mastered by Matheson Vaughn of local posi-violence heroes MICHAEL CRAFTER, and features 9 tracks of abrasive blasting in ten minutes.
Frontman Mathias Huxley provides an almost nauseating vocal performance atop his swirling guitar playing while skinsman, Muzz, supplies the spine to the sound with stoned blastbeats and jagged snare-work, while an organic layer of samples squirm into any moment of space, rounding out the claustrophobic sound of thedowngoing.
Hitting the road with support from some of Victoria’s most charming local bands, thedowngoing will be spitting vicious chunks of musical nihilism at the following events throughout November.
