DRUNK DAD Ripper Killer – releases July 1st, 2014, via Eolian Empire.

DRUNK DAD – When I first heard Drunk Dad’s Morbid Reality EP, I was very happy. Why you query? Answer: Drunk Dad plays Noise Rock and experiments with their sound like it’s the night before doomsday, while giving little or no regard about what others will say about the end result. Drunk Dad has their own terminology for their sound and they call it: Fuck You All Wave.

Make no mistake, Drunk Dad can and will shock you into embracing their music. Maybe. It’s weird how it happened to me. The mixture of several genres of non-mainstream, apocalyptic underground goodness is what Drunk Dad creates and they do it superbly, in my Metal opinion. I sometimes wonder to myself, would Noise be the genre that I would pursue If I wanted to start a band? Just listening to Drunk Dad seems to calm my nerves. After listening to Ripper Killer, I feel as though I took a hammer to an aluminum garbage can and now everything is cool.

Drunk Dad

Ripper Killer is Drunk Dad’s first long play and I see it being the launching pad of this Portland, Oregon ensemble. Drunk Dad needs to play Ripper Killer in its entirety at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, just to shut the mouths of and piss off all those plastic millionaire/billionaire dorks that get all the free corporate seats. I’m serious. The overall sound that is Ripper Killer just has to appeal to a cross-section of Punk, Sludge, Hardcore and Experimental fans. If you dig Mr. Bungle and/or the Melvins, you are in for a sonic treat with Drunk Dad. Yup.

As a past student of Art History, I’ve been trained to look beyond the first impression and explore the many inner cavities of the visual creation. With that said, the cover art (or photo if you will) of Drunk Dad’s Ripper Killer, (see atop post), exposes light years of relevance to what is happening in our world today. Albeit shocking to look at, the cover art does symbolize the death that is in our hourly news; whether it’s carnage from a madman firing off a gun in public, wars, cruelty to any life form or even an oil spill from an ocean tanker.

Relating the cover art of Ripper Killer to Drunk Dad’s music just seems to fit; for if the photo turns off the fancy and out-of-touch mainstream, then surely the music heard within will too. Sometimes one picture is truly worth a thousand words. That’s my interpretation, anyways. Metal be thy name. – Stone

DRUNK DAD “Morbid Reality” – Noise/Experimental Release Is Turn-Key Brain Consumption

DRUNK DAD – Okay all of you Noise and Experimental Metal loyalists; there’s a new band for y’all to add to your extended list of must buys for 2013: DRUNK DADs 4 song EP release titled: Morbid Reality. Avant garde Metalheads and those that follow the Melvins will surely get their brains gleefully sculpted with the Noise party that DRUNK DAD plays so freaking well.

With the absolute heavy album opener Guts, the musical melee has begun. Guts is nearly 8 minutes of maddening vocals and mind assaulting beats and guitar parts that make more sense than our current climate change controversy. In other words, you must go with the eclectic flow with this band’s representation of extreme and join the party; otherwise you’ll be a wallflower waiting for the next easy listening bus to arrive.

With songs Seizure, Ritual and Scum Fee rounding out this EP, DRUNK DAD has no problem exploring the atmospherics of sound, providing both calm and violent intervals that weave themselves together in an unexpected package of fascinating ear candy. This is Noise you want to shake loose to while running aimlessly with a cold beer in each hand; while not giving a shit about anything that could possibly spoil your day. Metal be thy name.

Eolian Empire released the four-song Morbid Reality via 12” vinyl and digital download on June 11th, 2013. Click RIGHT HERE to purchase the digital download!

DRUNK DAD – Noise/Sludge Quartet’s EP Is The Eolian Empire’s Next Conquest

Posted in experimental rock, grindcore, Music, noise rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Eolian Empire Compilation - promo cover - 2013

In a constant barrage of new noise from Portland-based D.I.Y. noisemongers Eolian Empire, the label’s next conquest comes by way of the filthifying new 12” from local metalworkers DRUNK DAD.

If they weren’t such dirty fuckers they’d be one of the town’s shining success stories of unrelenting hard work and dedication: in a surprisingly short time DRUNK DAD went from favorite-band-shirts-on-their-hearts-on-their-sleeves to a unique and dynamic fusion of the heavy, the noisy, and the aggro, with a healthy dose of high drama, as they consistently churn out some of the most devastating live sets Portland has seen in years. Complex but in-your-face arrangements, push-pull duel-guitar interplay, searing behind-the-head leads, heavy motherfucking bass, and hard-hitting, tight, technical traps with dynamic, disturbing vocals to hold it all together evolves to ethical scumbaggery at its finest.

Morbid Reality, the first vinyl release from Portlandian shitstarters DRUNK DAD, merges off-kilter sludge/noise the Pacific Northwest perpetuates so well into a drugged-out but aggro vibe; elements of scathing crust-ish degenerate punk brutality of El Dopa or Dystopia are cold-filtered with slow-motion acerbic sludge basslines and noxious riffage with a post-Melvins experimental vibe.

Eolian Empire will drop the four-song Morbid Reality via 12” vinyl and digital download on June 11th. In the meantime, DRUNK DAD were recently caught intoxicating the public via Eolian’s massive KEEP OUR HEADS Portland underground compilation alongside twenty-five more of the city’s finest filthriffing acts. Get wrecked with their pungent “S.O.U.” anthem from the comp RIGHT HERE.

Following their spot on one of the Eolian Empire KEEP OUR HEADS record release shows over the weekend, DRUNK DAD have the coolers loaded with frothy ammo as they plan on stumbling south across California this week, with shows booked in Eureka, Oakland and a happy-hour double in San Francisco. They also just booked a hometown record release show at Portland’s Ash Street Saloon with labelmates Diesto on June 7th, with much more public drunkenness to be had in the Summer months.
