VIDEO PREMIERE: self confessed Dark Witch Doom Duo Blacklab release "His Name Is..."

Hailing from Osaka, Japan self confessed Dark Witch Doom Duo Blacklab,  deliver  a full frontal assault of distorted riffs, howls and ghostly vocals, as well as bags of riot girrl attitude and lo-fi bravado.  Having released their new record “Under The Strawberry Moon 2.0” on July 20th via New Heavy Sounds, expect the usual nod to Sabbath but Blacklab have a vibe and experimental undertow not to dissimilar countrymen to Boris  incorporating elements of doom, drone, sludge and black metal to produce some truly unique.  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.

Remixed by Wayne Adams @ Bear Bites Horse Studio to maximum effect, make no mistake this band will not disappoint and today at THE SLUDGELORD we are very fortunate to be able to debut Blacklab’s new video for the track “His Name Is ..” which you can check out below. 

Blacklab are: Yuko Morino | guitar, vocals and Chia Shiraishi | drums.  This is what the band had to say about the track

“His Name Is ..”. is a rough rock tune, which has an irregular meter and shuffle beat. The lyrics are written in Nihon-go. The song mixes melodic and barking vocals to add a hardcore element, which is very much part of our sound.  It's the song composed soon after we formed the band, and it's one of the songs that we often play when we're asked for encore.
