New Music // I’ll Eat Your Face – ‘Drowning Dogs in a Swamp’

leave a comment »

I’ve written about I’ll Eat Your Face before in the context of them performing our favourite dancefloor fillers of yesteryear at Fred Zeppelin’s in Cork.

However despite a burgeoning career as a karaoke machine, it’s original music that the Rebel County duo do best, and their 2010 album Irritant (still free from Bandcamp) is a glorious slab of tectonic plate-shifting sludge metal.

18 months later, give or take, they’re back with a taster of what album #2 has to offer. ‘Drowning Dogs in a Swamp,’ its appealingly disgusting title notwithstanding, is a subtler and more refined spin on Irritant‘s all-out rock. It builds slowly with haunting, OK Computer-style picked guitar before letting loose with lumbering, doomy riffing and skittish drumming.

At more than two and a half minutes, it’s also longer than all but the closing track from Irritant, which is perhaps an indication of the direction the pair have chosen to take.
