Hull Legend Of The Swamp Goat - promo cover pic - 2014 - #3349

HULL – Brooklyn’s Metal ambassadors known across the planet as HULL released a 7″ vinyl single (with B-Side etching and digital download card) back on February 14th of this year. The single is titled: Legend Of The Swamp Goat. This 7″ single released in limited colors, with sea-foam being an European tour exclusive. I kept playing this mighty Metal song over and over last night and came to realize: HULL’s The Legend Of The Swamp Goat shall be Stone’s Metal Pick Of The Day! Whoa.

Monstrous riffs, chunky bass, formidable drumming, powerful street-cred vocals, sludgy and doomy across this entire song, with an anthemic atmosphere of Metal sound is Legend Of The Swamp Goat. Hell, this is HULL for Metal sakes!! A true riff infested gem is this song and you can hear it and make a purchase for yourself below. Metal be thy name. – Stone

HULL – Brooklyn Sludge Rock Cooperative Issues European Tour Wrap-Up; Live Footage Posted

Hull Legend Of The Swamp Goat - promo cover pic - 2014 - #3349

Long-running Brooklyn sludge rock cooperative, HULL, recently wrapped up a two-week run of live takeovers through Europe. Joined by Boston doom bringers, Elder, the journey commenced in Tilburg, where the band systematically leveled the stage at Roadburn with their vibrating walls of hypnotic dirge.

Recounted bassist/vocalist Sean Bryant Dunn from their final show in London: “Our journey began in Tilburg for the Roadburn festival where we had the opportunity to play and hang out with some amazing friends, old and new. The following two weeks we burned many a mile with our new brothers Elder, reducing stages to rubble. There will not be a moment without the thought of touring with these boys. With that, I’ll say thanks to everyone that helped us out, put us up, fed us and for wrecking their necks at the show. Europe truly understands how to appreciate and respect all artists. We will be back as soon as humanly possible!”

Check out live footage from the tour, below:

HULL recently released a brand “new” hymn entitled, Swamp Goat. Originally tracked in 2007, “Swamp Goat” laid dormant while the band penned material for their critically lauded Sole Lord full-length. After a grueling tour schedule and follow-up release, 2011’s sprawling Beyond The Lightless Sky full-length, “Swamp Goat” was lost in the caves and forgotten… until now.

The tune features on the band’s Legend Of The Swamp Goat seven-inch unleashed in February via HULL’s own Iron Orchestra Works imprint and Midnight Collective. Bearing the stunning artwork of Nathan Overstrom, the single appears on Side A while an etching occupies Side B. Legend Of The Swamp Goat comes in limited pink, blue, green, and white vinyl.

HULL will be playing a hometown return show next month at Saint Vitus where copies of the 7″ can be purchased direct from the band.

HULL Live 2014:

5/17/2014 Saint Vitus Bar – Brooklyn, NY w/ Bloody Hammers [info]

HULL materializes as a massive entity, storming stages and immersing their audiences in a blanket of grandiose down-tuned compositions. A shifting fault line of decibel heavy harmony, this collective force converges in a collision of thrash, doom, classic rock, and formal orchestral works. HULL commands their listeners through each riff with incredible precision, as a seafarer guides vessels through ominous waters.

Submerged in cosmic soundscapes, HULL challenges the mind with flowing, off-time fugues and powerful, dynamic movements. Brace yourself for an onslaught of eruptive force as a new world of music is formed in the deafening clap of thunder that is HULL.

Purchase the Legend Of The Swamp Goat seven-inch, below:

“True to form, this ‘new’ tune bombards the listener from every angle with clever arrangements and bluesy bluster. ‘Swamp Goat’ is a hazy, hellbent ride through thickets of distortion and syrupy sludge.” – Noisey on “Swamp Goat”

HULL – To Be Featured On TLC’s Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker, Airing Monday, January 16th

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, sludge metal with tags , , , , , , on January 14, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Brooklyn Sludge Rock ensemble HULL will ring in the New Year with an appearance on The Learning Channel’s Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker this Monday, January 16, 2012 at 9:00PM EST. The Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker is a TLC series hosted by Buddy Valastro, the star of his own reality series, Cake Boss. The show features contestants participating in challenges that test their baking and decorating skills.

Commented guitarist/vocalist N. Palmirotto: “We received this email from a production manager from the TV show, The Next Great Baker, a Cake Boss spin-off, asking us if we would like to perform on the show. It was during the time that the Big Four were in town, and Megadeth were originally asked to perform for Mauro’s birthday. Mauro Castano is the Cake Boss’ right-hand man and brother-in-law, as he was always a big Metalhead back in the day, but Megadeth couldn’t do it for whatever reason. HULL was mentioned at a board meeting, and low and behold, they contacted us. We showed up in Hoboken on a rainy afternoon to a huge production. They had us set up and perform on top of two box trucks while the contestants displayed their best attempts at metal-themed birthday cakes. It was truly a one of a kind experience, and we are very much looking forward to Episode 8, Headbanging Bakers, on January 16th.”

For more info on the show, point your browser to the official website HERE.

HULL recently unleashed their Beyond The Lightless Sky opus, which continues to earn critical praise from fans and media alike. Released via The End Records, Beyond The Lightless Sky was co-produced by Brett Romnes, mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Melvins, et al).and features guest appearances by vocalist Jarboe, keys/ambiance by Fade Kainer (Batillus/Jarboe/Inswarm ) and cello by Joe Merolla with artwork by Tamara Waite-Santibanez.

HULL Issue Tour Wrap-Up, Band To Open For EYEHATEGOD In Brooklyn This Sunday!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news, sludge metal with tags , , , , , , , on December 2, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Brooklyn Sludge Rock sensations HULL recently returned from a pillaging month-long tour crumbling stages throughout the U.S. with their sonic wall of triple-guitar led, conceptual enormity. Bassist Sean Bryant Dunn recently posted an extensive tour wrap-up. An excerpt reads:

“First and foremost, The Fucking Wrath are amazing dudes! Wise are they in entering and sustaining the ‘Nite Zoo’ mentality. Ripping through the states with these boys was truly an honor and meeting them again could come no sooner. Sorry that merch dog Shimer had to deal with that crazy shooting in NOLA on Halloween. If only he had worn the Duke that road dog Hollis had donned for his warrior outfit, there would not have been any random violence. The situation would have been resolved quickly and with less innocent casualties.”

Read the full tour report HERE.

In related news, HULL will be playing with Eyehategod this Sunday at Club Europe in Brooklyn, NY. Show starts at 8:00pm. Don’t miss it! Further info available at THIS LOCATION.

HULL recently unleashed their Beyond The Lightless Sky opus, which continues to earn critical praise from fans and media alike. Released via The End Records, Beyond The Lightless Sky, was co-produced by Brett Romnes, mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Melvins, et al).and features guest appearances by vocalist Jarboe, keys/ambiance by Fade Kainer(Batillus/Jarboe/Inswarm ) and cello by Joe Merolla with artwork by Tamara Waite-Santibanez.

In related news, Metal Injection recently posted an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the creation of HULL‘s “Beyond The Lightless Sky” video. If you missed it the first time, check out the “making of” video footage HERE.

Hailing from the streets of Brooklyn, New York, HULL has yet again emerged with a creation to outlive the ages with latest saga, Beyond The Lightless Sky. Digging further into the past, the Mayan epic takes the listener through a division of two brothers and the struggles that they are faced with. One finds salvation amongst the stars and the wisdom of a stranger, while the other is mesmerized with the bloodthirsty belief of sacrifice and self-mutilation. In silence lies a realm that exists outside the plane of fear.

Beyond The Lightless Sky features guest appearances by vocalist Jarboe, keys/ambiance by Fade Kainer (Batillus/Jarboe/Inswarm ) and cello by Joe Merolla with artwork by Tamara Waite-Santibanez (http://nogutsandnoglory.blogspot.com).
