War Brides are a direct, frontal-assault. All massive riffs and sweat. Immense rhythm section and howling vocals. They follow in a long line of Midwest post-hardcore, calling to mind the sounds of Slint and Shiner with echoes of 1000 Hurts era Shellac infused with equal parts Helmet, Harkonen and Botch. Formed in 2010, they quickly honed their sound of clout and sludge with the release of the EP, Terminus in 2011. Two years on and countless live shows later, the band released their follow up album, Burden, in Summer 2013. Tracked at Howl Street Recordings in Milwaukee during the latter half of 2012, the band enlisted Chicago engineer Carl Saff (Big Business, Red Fang, Sweet Cobra, Young Widows, Unsane) for mastering duties.
