UK anonymous collective LOATHE have re-released their brand-new EP, PREPARE CONSUME PROCEED, today via Sharptone Records. The powerhouse quintet delivers an auditory assault on the senses with its dark sound coupled with electronic elements, heavy guitars and raw vocals.
LOATHE is heading across the pond this fall to perform at this year’s Knotfest at the San Manuel Amphitheater & Festival Grounds. Catch them live on Sunday, September 26th on the Nuclear Blast Extreme Stage. LOATHE are an anonymous and stringent collective formed in an unknown part of the UK. Members are only identifiable by their assigned three lettered initials; DRK, DRT, SNK, MWL & NIL.
They are said to demonstrate a ‘hive-mind’ mentality, possessing traits which are somewhat detached and robotic. Vague; perhaps hardly human. They are led by front man DRK – who is their commander and luminary. DRK is identified by his ‘prophetic’ mask which is always carried with him or worn… of which the significance is unknown. LOATHE are bonded together on several strict & confidential principals. Their live shows have been said to be cryptic, un-nerving, and uncomfortable. Some say a dark and sinister experience.
Loathe’s debut EP, PREPARE CONSUME PROCEED, is a heavy and compelling release; ominous and accomplished. It is a conceptual audio representation of this arcane ‘hive-mind mentality’.
