Gnaw To Release Debut

Gnaw`s debut to be released Feb 20 via Conspiracy Records

Gnaw was formed in 2006 by Alan Dubin (ex-Khanate, OLD) along with Jamie Sykes (ex-Burning Witch, Thorr`s Hammer, Atavist), Carter Thornton (Enos Slaughter), Jun Mizumachi (ex-Ike Yard, 80`s NYC industrial legends) and Brian Beatrice (Emmy Award winning sound design/mix wizard).

Gnaw`s debut album, This Face, is the sonic culmination of over a year of sound experimentation. It`s a genre destroying journey that almost defies description. Sykes is a percussive madman blasting out anything from tribal beats to ultra slow tom killings. Mizumachi is a renown sound designer for film and TV and is a master of electronics including synth, factory noise, metal bashing and other craziness. Beatrice is also a sound designer and mixer for film and TV and was the mixer for This Face as well as experimenting and adding additional sounds. Thornton is a crafty musician who actually makes his own instruments. He played guitar, bass, piano and some unnamed home-made "things." Additionally, Thornton supplied field recordings and arranged many of the songs. Dubin rounds out the group with his gut-wrenching vocals, noise and arrangements.

Screaming, singing, whispers and chants can be heard throughout This Face. Dubin`s lyrics will fuck with your mind!
