Official press release: New York City-based experimental/noise metal outfit Gnaw has completed the harrowing third album, Cutting Pieces, securing the record for late October release through Translation Loss Records. The LP's "Septic" is now playing at Decibel Magazine as the label issues preorders and more. Closing a four-year gap since their acclaimed Horrible Chamber LP (Seventh Rule, 2013), Gnaw crawls forth from the gutters once again, dredging forth some of their most unnerving audio assaults to date on Cutting Pieces. The seismic atrocities and haunting intricacies on Cutting Pieces leave an instantly damaging, long-lasting impression, their cumulative decimation undoubtedly producing Gnaw's most cinematic terror to date. Decibel unleashes the first single from Cutting Pieces, through an exclusive stream of "Septic," featuring background vocals courtesy of Stefania Alos Pedretti of OvO. Gnaw issues of the track, "'Septic' is one of the faster tunes on the album. The guitars sound like razors and the ending is utterly creepy. We're honored to have Stefania from OvO on it thickening up the chorus with her unique cave-woman like voice." Notes Decibel Magazine's write-up of the song includes, "vocalist Alan Dubin's harrowing shrieks and disturbed whispers serve as the narration to six minutes of noise, razor-sharp guitar assaults and other sounds created by Gnaw's diverse repertoire of devices." Translation Loss will release Cutting Pieces on LP, CD, and digital formats on October 27th.
