Born from social loathing, an evolved conscious, and experimentation in sonic terrorism, Virginia-natives hERETICS iN tHE lAB take elements of industrial music, fine art, post-apocalyptic rock and roll, and avant-garde sound-scapes to form an incredibly intense hard-line industrial music experience drenched in ego and libido. hERETICS iN tHE lAB are currently set to release their new album, Suture, via Sacrifice Records on November 12, 2013.
Track listing for Suture:
4 some people
8 car crash
The band has a static video out now for their first single ‘Skin’, available for viewing here: http://youtu.be/lNDHHfYarrM. A lyric video for ‘Some People’ is coming soon.
The primary backbone of hERETICS iN tHE lAB is the main instrumentalist and producer on Suture, h3. Although the band performs live with additional members M1 (keys), tB (drums), kV (guitars), h3 creates all that is hERETICS iN tHE lAB, not unlike many of industrial’s greatest musical minds.
Drawing comparisons to Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Bile and Marilyn Manson, hERETICS iN tHE lAB has established themselves in the underground goth/industrial scene as a force to be reckoned with while still managing to appeal to more mainstream fans of heavy metal and rock. Known for the shear emotional intensity of their live shows as well as their erratic unpredictable song structures hERETICS iN tHE lAB consistently challenges unprepared audiences and leaves them awe-inspired.
In an interview with The Plastics Professional Groupies, h3 states, “I pull influence from everything. As far as Heretics, I hate to say it’s a negative place, but a negative place is sometimes my way of dealing with bad things that happen.”
h3 adds, “I feel like art is the ultimate form of communication. It’s a way to speak directly to people. Sometimes there are a lot of lyrics where you can’t hear me, but I can make you understand it anyway.”
The band will perform at a few local tour dates in the come months. See below for all dates, including the CD release party for Suture.
