Blacklab. The dark witch doom duo from Osaka, Japan are coming.
Fuzz, fuzz, fuzz, doom, stoner, more fuzz.
We are super stoked to be putting out the debut album from Japanese doom duo Blacklab.
Their debut ‘Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0’ is a full frontal assault of distorted riffs, howls and ghostly vocals, as well as bags of riot girrl attitude and lo-fi bravado.
Being nominally a ‘Doom’ band, you can expect a bucket load of Sabbath worship for sure, but Blacklab have a vibe and experimental undertow akin more to their countrymen ‘Boris’ and the souped up lo-fi fuzz of Ty Segall or Comets On Fire.
This first Blacklab release on NHS, is a version of their ‘Under The Strawberry Moon’ album which was released in tiny numbers on CD only in Japan, a pull together of previous tracks and new songs recorded over 2017.
But the NHS variant is different.
Wayne Adams (Death Pedals, Shitwife, Vodun, Casual Nun) noise guru at Bear Bites Horse Studio, has remixed the tracks to maximum effect, upping the fuzz and weight of the originals, to create Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0. exclusively for NHS.
You will not be disappointed.
Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0 is available as limited edition Black/Orange half and half vinyl which includes a free CD and download of the whole album. Also available in regular CD and digital formats.
