District of Dystopia
Vinyl LP pressing. Jucifer, founded in Georgia in 1993, are pioneers of the sludge/doom/death metal two-piece. For their seventh full-length, Districts of Dystopia, Jucifer mounts a sonic assault chronicling the corruption and gross misuse of power in our nation's capitol. Recorded in their RV during their never-ending tour of the planet, Districts of Dystopia offers nine of America's ugliest history lessons put to record. Through all nine tracks, G. Amber Valentine's rasp and tar-thick guitars lay down a grimy, murky layer while her husband, Edgar Livengood, pounds away at the drums. There's no flash, no tricks, just straight-up raw power that would make Eyehategod stand up and take notice. Unlike heavy duos that use loops, backing tracks or triggers to fill out their live sound, Jucifer relies on compositions designed to decimate with only real-time drums and distorted guitar. And for sonic reinforcement, their legendary wall of speakers has shaken venues across the planet for the last two decades, with no sign of them selling out, softening their sound, or slowing down their almost constant touring! Never has Jucifer's conviction to their craft and passion about their beliefs been more evident than on District of Dystopia!
