Vocalist Mitchell Luna Comments:
"Writing this album was an absolute challenge, as we are all spread out throughout different parts of the country, but I am beyond happy with the end result! It's a mix of death metal, grind, and hardcore, and a vast improvement from the EP we put out in 2022.
We went the DIY route and recorded the album ourselves with the help of some good friends, and then handed it off to Arthur Rizk so he can work his magic in the mixing/mastering department.
It's 21 minutes. No fucking filler. Bleak and painful, yet grounded in reality.
Thanks to anyone that listens! Blastbeats forever!"
Mixed/mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Tomb Mold), The Dismal Advance is a 21 minute high-BPM, trauma feedback loop of non-stop shredding, blastbeat precision, and feral sonic volatility that sharply executes a superb balance of riffs, groove and masterful instrumentation. Replete with nihilistic lyrics and post-apocalyptic imagery, The Dismal Advance is a stark reminder that hell can be a place on earth... and some of us live in it.
SHOCK WITHDRAWAL recently played their first live show with GridLink at Saint Vitus! Stay tuned for more live announcements in the near future.
