The Sweet Release Of Death

Biography
Gee, what a bunch of god forsaken wretches. That could be the first thing crossing your mind about a band calling themselves The Sweet Release of Death. But things are rarely as simple as they appear. Take for example Japanese Shintoism, a religion that considers death the overcoming of your mortality, not so much as a desolate end.

Likewise, the Rotterdam-based trio’s frenzied noise rock isn’t a shallow black-and-white affair. Alicia Ferrer Breton (vocals / bass), Martijn Tevel (guitar) and Sven Englishman (drums) form a jagged and primal force that embodies a multitude of stylistic gray scales…with a glint of pitch black humor to boot. Songs that pull at the threads separating eternal love and twisted obsession, welcoming Judgement Day like some grandiose blockbuster spectacle.
The Sweet Release of Death’s 2014 debut LP Bulb was recorded in Corno ‘Space Siren’ Zwetsloot’s Next To Jaap Studio. Obviously, Space Siren’s profound influence on The Sweet Release lingers, particularly how all three band members manically expand and coalesce their noise workouts like a swarm of rabid insects.

The Sweet Release of Death’s self-titled sophomore effort will be a joint release on Subroutine Records and Katzwijm Records. If Bulb was a trial-and-error sequence of eureka-like moments, the new album finally overcomes the bumps and bruises, establishing the band’s sharp-witted, brilliant and coherent vision. Producers Tammo Kersbergen (I Am Oak) and Floyd Atema (Herrek) subjected The Sweet Release of Death’s erratic sound to more crisp and glistened textures, a significant progression from the grittier sound of Bulb. The first taste of what’s to come is the hysterical ‘Smutek‘, a ferocious maelstrom of eerie noise exorcisms and glitchy convulsions.
