The worlds fastest noise rock band; Chicago speed space metal trio OOZING WOUND return to Bristol to showcase their new album 'High Anxiety'.
Support from Bristol's favorite super-sonic, progressive noise trio GHOLD; alongside London-based, nasty noise, heavy-punksters BRUXA MARIA; consisting of a dynamic line-up this punk-force contains members of Terminal Cheesecake, ṠḶẏ & Ṯḧḕ ḟḀṁḭḶẏ ḊṙṏṆḕ, Ghold and more.
Oozing Wound revels in the absurdity of horrifying realities, playing up fear and desperation to reveal the underlying humor. On Earth Suck they offer increasingly extreme portraits of moral and societal decay seen through the eyes of those doing the perpetrating. On "Genuine Creeper" Weil embodies a fetus eating its twin: "Kill your neighbor or kill yourself - I creep tonight." On "Hippie Speedball" he becomes an addict who can't go to work without getting high: "I can't wake up without my hippie speedball."
Their taboo defying humor is prevalent throughout the scene that birthed them. Over their few years in existence they have played with Black Pus, Rectal Hygenics, Climax Denial, Male Bondage, Shaved Women, Supersonic Piss, Sea of Shit, Forced Into Femininity, and more, along with other notable bands like High On Fire, The Body, Ash Borer, Wolf Eyes, and Nazoranai. Despite their dedication to the DIY scene that birthed them, Oozing Wound has already gained the attention of Adult Swim, who selected them as part of their exclusive Singles series, which also features Sleep, Mastodon, Deafheaven, and Diarrhea Planet.
From Leeds and Oxford originally, Al Wilson and Paul Antony formed GHOLD in 2012 in Brixton, London. The, then duo, wrote and rehearsed and wrote a total of three full records (Judas Goat, Galactic Hiss, Of Ruin) in a disused bathroom/toilet in their shared flat-amps stacked high in the bath, drums shells spread around the toilet bowl. They gained local notoriety and respect throughout the local underground noise and metal scene for their progressive approach to the gnarled weirdness that has come to describe them. GHOLD are unrelentingly committed to bringing their ethos of dizzying noise and chaos to the masses.
On November 1st 2017 GHOLD released their forth album 'STOIC' in collaboration with London record shop 'Crypt of the Wizard Records' to high acclaim.
The trio have been consistently whipping up a sonic flurry of uneasy accross Europe, this year and last, and are set to release an exclusive stream only EP March 2019.
