The Sludgelord News: Minsk Unveil New Single From 'The Crash & The Draw'

The Crash & The Draw, is the title of  new full-length from Illinois based band, MINSK and withless than one month away from it’s official release, fellow noise dealers Steel For Brains have been given the pleasure of hosting the eighth movement, from that record, entitled "The Way Is Through,"

After more than a half decade in hiberation, MINSK have emerged from hiatus to  deliver a stellar eleven track opus incorparating a myriad of post-metal, sludge and psychedelic noise, which will certainly end up on many end of year lists. 

MINSK guitarist/vocalist Christopher Bennett offers this insight to to this  album teaser, "The Way Is Through:" "To seek and discover, to die and become. Forever in a circle. There exists treasures waiting for our search. All of these are within our reach. They are a part of us all. Awaken to begin. No circumventing here. Come along, do not hesitate. The world will be built again. 'The Way Is Through' is a reminder to stay the course. The desire to gain knowledge and understanding of the world around us, of the past, present and future, must be accompanied by the Will. Thought without action is useless. This song is our offering and our translation of the experience on the path; an experience that can be at once understated and tranquil, yet outlandish and overwhelming."
