South Florida's troupe of fearlessly experimental extremists, Orbweaver released its debut extended player Strange Transmissions From the Neuralnomicon last year to a chorus of critical interest. The media and audience were seemingly as enthralled as perplexed by the ambitious group's Lovecraftian take on heavy metal.
The limited-edition cassette of the EP -- released on Shroud Eater cofrontwoman Jean Saiz's Primitive Violence label -- was given the ultimate treatment for a band with a flair for science fiction. It includes rad extras like comic cards that feature Saiz's illustrations of characters found in the lyrics. The music is finally available as a proper vinyl release through Corpse Flower Records.
The band is slated to open many of the higher-profile metal shows coming to South Florida and has a new album in the works. Orbweaver is starting to see its hard work pay off. We spoke with the band's vocalist/guitarist and sonic manipulator at large, Randy Piro, about the vinyl release and all that is exciting for Orbweaver at present.More »
