HARMS WAY - Rust LP
“Rust” is the new album from Harm’s Way. Recorded at Brick Top Recordings by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Dead In The Dirt), mixed at God City Studios by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails). Brutally and meticulously refined, “Rust” brilliantly combines industrial repetition (think Godflesh), metal attack (think Sepultura, Helmet, Celtic Frost), and hardcore aggression. Showing that Harm’s Way have emerged from the wreckage of past genres as the new high watermark of heavy in contemporary aggressive music.
Opener “Infestation” stomps with machine-like precision before plunging into a depressing sonic dirge. While songs like “Law Of The Land”, “Hope”, “Cancerous Ways”, and others introduce guitar and electronic driven atmospherics into the arsenal. These subtle dynamics bleed into other aspects of “Rust” as well. Mid-album beast “Left To Disintegrate” unfurls as an unforgettable anti-anthem ripe with infectious creeping metallic undertones. While “Amongst The Rust” and “Turn To Stone” introduce guest vocals from Colin Young (Twitching Tongues) and Emily Jancetic. Both of them adding haunting nuance to the brute force of the band. All of this leads to the epic closer “Ease My Mind”; a take-no-prisoners aural bludgeoning so heavy that it needs to be heard to be believed.
