Shlohmo has formally announced a new album and shared a new single from the project. Dark Red will serve as Shlohmo’s sophomore LP, and is scheduled to see release on April 7 via True Panther and WeDidIt. In a press release, Shlohmo states that the new album “sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record…or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx,” and the new single, “Buried,” is certainly proof of that. “Buried” can best be described as a doom metal or gnarled psych-rock epic, but in instrumental beat form; it’s like if Dopethrone was cooked up in LA or Bristol’s experimental electronic scenes. Shlohmo is definitely making a statement with his latest, but it’s one that might make his upcoming project one of the most anticipated releases of 2015. There aren’t too many producers out there crafting this type of music. You can listen to “Buried” above, and read through a statement from Shlohmo regarding today’s unveilings below.

“When I started working on Dark Red about two and a half years ago, I had just moved back to LA and built a small studio in my apartment, mostly with my dad’s old gear from the 80s. I had just lost some people close to me and was dealing with another loved one’s health issues. I was all over the place mentally, and I think it reflects in this record whether I like it or not.

The only thing I did know going into it, was that I wanted this one to be loud, and not just loud but really really f***ing loud. I wanted the sound of the thing to be devastating and violent. Recordings that force you to feel something even if that something isn’t good. I’m proud to have made something polarizing, a record that’s strong and undeniable even in its moments of pure anxiety and confusion. It’s tragic and painful at times, but that’s all part of it and I want that to be heard and felt. You don’t have to like it, just listen to it.”
