(Release date: October 7th 2017)
Release date: October 7th, 2017
Record label: self-released
In an age of decay, the world cries out for metal that delivers with power and reverence for the gods who came before. In answer to the call rises Guillotine, groovy death metal crusaders hailing from Athens and Atlanta, Georgia. Harnessing the sonic extremes of death and black metal while executing with nuance and subtlety, Guillotine is a harbinger of drastic change, of revolution. Heads will roll.
Guillotine was first conceived in 2003 in rural southwest Georgia. After more than a decade of hibernation, brothers Lance and Adam Miller resurrected Guillotine in 2015 with fresh ideas and direction. Drummer Evan Posey has since joined the lineup, adding his brutal metal pummeling to the Miller brothers’ oozing grooves. In 2016, Guillotine began playing shows with an album’s worth of original songs, which were immortalized in June 2017 at Ledbelly Sound Studio with Matthew Washburn at the helm recording, mixing, and mastering. This album bears a sound intrinsic to the Miller brothers, combining traces of black metal, old school death metal, and NOLA sludge to create a massive wall of crushing doom. With lyrical themes of time travel, ancient aliens, interdimensional vampire gods, and conspiracy theories galore, the album sets the scene of the conceptual universe in which the stories of Guillotine will be told. Feast your ears upon what is only the first taste of Guillotine.
