so it's official, Feb 8 is the date and we're taking orders starting... right now. go on and listen to it and buy at the bandcamp site or (preferably the meltface store) you know you need it in your life doitdoitdoit. here's the press release for you pressy folk.
Evil Bebos is strange. Their second full length record is stranger. Hailing from dark psychedelic destinations most avoid, “The Stranger” is a blackened concoction brewed from blood soaked ritual and sun baked lunacy. Crushing riffage combines with nauseous synth work in a constantly unfolding journey of a strange prophet exiled into the wasteland to face the demons of insanity in total isolation.
Their first full length offering since 2008’s acclaimed psychedelic doomfest,“The Dead Language”, Evil Bebos plans to release the The Stranger in Feb 8, 2011 through Meltface Records. The packaging features beautiful yet disturbing original artwork created for the band by artist Dave Denton to draw the listener into the tale of “The Stranger” . Taking subtle cues from Albert Camus’ work by the same name and juxtaposed against an original narritive written by the band the songs weave together like a soundtrack to a film playing in the back of the mind of the audience. Musically the record is also a juxtaposition of dissimilar influences that blend into a flow of collective consciousness to create a style all thier own. Initially tracked live at Wildwood Recording in early 2009 and then completed at Meltface Studios by the band. Having the opportunity to experiment in there own studio allowed Evil Bebos the freedom to perfect the eerie atmospherics, progressive synthesis, and abrasive noises that made their live shows both infamous and irresistible.
Evil Bebos has changed dramatically since it was first unleashed into the world on June 6 of 2006. Formed under the banner of stoney brutal noise destruction the bands unintentional success inevitably led to musical maturity, structures were built and form began to show and before long what started as a couple guys punishing drunk kids at house shows was a roadworthy metal machine. After played countless local shows and doing a number of tours to far off locations like New York, Chicago, and Austin TX for official SXSW showcases in 08 and 09 the cult of Bebos had grown to a national epidemic and the band had cemented their place as mainstays in the Nashville noise and metal scene. In 2010, members of Evil Bebos pursued a myriad of projects, including: assisting The Ascent of Everest in recording “From This Vantage” in the Spring of 2010, and in Winter, performing choice early-era Black Sabbath, with friends The Protomen, in one night of debauchery and tribute.
