for your Health

Brutal. Primal. Murky. Antagonistic. All these words could be used to describe the self titled debut album of L.A. quartet HEALTH. The album was recorded in The Smell, an all ages venue in L.A. that's dark and dirty, with vintage ribbon microphones and is set to be released September 18th via Love Pump United Records concurrently with a split 7" featuring label mates Crystal Castles on the flip side (listen to a track from it below).

The album is 11 tracks long and only 29 minutes long, but don't let that fool you. Listening to it will leave you exhausted. It's drum driven bass line and thrashing guitars rush forth with an astounding urgency that will batter you from beginning to end. Most of the album is industrialesque noise made to be played loud with occasional tortured screams and chanting lyrics coming up under it all.
