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.

HULL – Issue Tour Wrap-Up Via Decibelmagazine.com

Posted in metal music, metal odyssey, Music, progressive metal, rock music, rock music news, sludge metal with tags , , , , , , , on May 3, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

This past March, Brooklyn-based Progressive Sludge Rock ensemble, HULL, completed a two-week tour with post-Doom troupe Batillus. The journey included gigs with some crushing bands, a near shut down due to “the aural strain” the band reportedly levied upon one unsuspecting neighborhood, running from cops, good food, guns, ATVs, some chest-caving appearances at this year’s SXSW and so much more.

Reads a snippet from their well-documented adventure: “I noticed one of the cops was coming after me. Although my first instinct was to protect the cavalry, my next instinct was to run from the possibility of going to jail and ruining our SXSW.  Next thing I knew, I was hiding out in a random garage in bumfuck Ft. Worth…”

Check out the band’s entire tour diary — which includes photos and random video footage — at Decibel Magazine’s website HERE.

HULL are gearing up to release the follow-up to their critically-acclaimed Sole Lord debut, issued via The End Records in 2009. Their sophomore full-length will be co-produced by Brett Romnes (who played drums on their pummeling Viking Funeral EP) and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Melvins, et al). Stay tuned for further details…
