In December of 2015, three bands with three different stylistic approaches to aggressive music, but a common outlook on the world, came together to create a collective piece of work – The Depression Sessions. Those three bands were THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY and on August 12, Nuclear Blast Entertainment will release the results of this experience both digitally and on limited edition vinyl.
“This was a challenging experience for me,” commented producer and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY guitarist Will Putney. “Recording three bands at once, one of them being your own is a very intense thing. Lots of coffee, lots of headaches, but a rewarding end result.”
Putney continues: “With ‘Flatlining’ we went a little more melodic and moody to balance out the full on aggression of the other songs on the split. It was fun to try some new tricks. NINE INCH NAILS is a collective band favorite, and I loved how ‘The Perfect Drug’ translates so well with our style, so that was an obvious cover choice for the band. Hope you like it!”
THE ACACIA STRAIN recently made the track “Sensory Deprivation” available for download on all major digital music platforms. Receive the song, along with “They Will Know Another” by THY ART IS MURDER, as an instant download now when you pre-order the album digitally via iTunes and Amazon
