Corrections House don’t care about your feelings.

“Go back from whence you came and tie your shoes correctly this time”.

When the dust settles from listening to this new record, you won’t know if you have PTSD, are inspired or are a masochist.

Industrial influenced metal and punk has really made something of a tiny yet formidable comeback via acts like the brilliant UK act Hateful Abandon, France’s Crown, the doomy studio project Culted and the U.S.A.’s own vital, machine building, pacifist madman Author & Punisher or my pal Jay Gambit’s Crowhurst.

Even Nergal has been getting into Youth Code and it’s a good time to feel bleak and alive. Circle Of Animals was a cool record and even Ministry has had some solid late career surprises amidst their more speed metal direction, Theologian and Prurient thrill but the genre was mostly wheezing on paint fumes compared to other styles like thrash, death and metalcore which the public has clamored for more recently. That said, this shit is never gonna become standard mall kid fare, ever. Not unless Bladerunner ever really arrives in full.

“It was a group decision to do things this way. It seemed right.” – Bruce Lamont.

Corrections House have a new live album coming out with the satire drenched scorpion stinging title of Writing History In Advance. The band, featuring members of Neurosis, Yakuza and more, perform harsh industrial noise paired with dystopian poetry and real world trench warfare waged on the creative front lines at the edge of society’s dismal  reasons and broken moral compass.

Get about three minutes into the band’s video for “Hoax The System” and embrace the Godflesh “Wound”/noise mantra jazz of it all and be blown away. That is a good place to begin.

Bruce Lamont is a tower of musical talent and it was very good to pick his brain about the band’s current tour, live sound and development.

Corrections HouseCorrections House, a project of Eyehategod vocalist Mike IX Williams, Neurosis vocalist Scott Kelly and a couple of others are streaming the song “Serve or Survive” off of their upcoming album Last City Zero. There is scant information on the band that I can find besides whats in the press release but you can read that below.

You can listen to it here.

Official press release:
“Today the musical miscreants at Pitchfork offer up the first sampling of Last City Zero, the forthcoming debut full-length from recent Neurot Recordings signees, Corrections House. A shadowy legion of lost souls, fused together by the impulsive forces of nature and altered states of consciousness, Corrections House is the maniacal creation of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury. Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero offers up eight psychologically alarming hymns that span well beyond the traditional confines of sound. At once cold, mechanical, prosaic and pungent, Last City Zero is a full body experience rather than a casual listen. 

In celebration of its impending release, Pitchfork is currently streaming opening track “Serve or Survive,” which they call “every bit as strange and unwieldy as its membership might suggest. ‘Serve or Survive’ opens as an oblong bed of noise, the circuits of producer Sanford Parker, struggle to catch their breath while Bruce Lamont broadcasts whale song by saxophone. Above the gray drift, Neurosis’ Scott Kelly intones his familiar doom.”

Comments Fairbury of the tune: “How can the choice be any clearer? The less Serving you do, the more chance you have to Survive. Serving is rarely a positive experience and Surviving, although a victory of sorts, is truly the most basic form of existence. Either way, you’re fucked.”

Make a choice. “Serve or Survive”
