Dizzying tech metal maniacs Car Bomb have released their first album in the last five years, interestingly entitled w^w^^w^w. The whole album was self-recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by the band over 2011 and 2012 in their studios in Long Island/Brooklyn. It also features guest vocals from Gojira’s own Joe Duplantier on the song Third Revelation which can be listened to here. The band released the album off the back of their tour with Gojira during the summer.
In a statement about the album the band said: “We’re beyond excited to once and for all complete and release this thing. Every aspect of this recording — writing, recording, mixing, mastering, artwork, you name it — was done 100% by the band. It took as much time as most people spend going to college, but we think it was worth the wait.” Singer Michael Dafferner added: “It’s really easy when writing technical music to sound like you’re just stringing random riffs together. Though we wanted to make a lot of sharp turns in each song, we really strove for each song to have its own distinct sound and mood.”
CD and Vinyl releases will follow in the coming weeks.
