BrooklynVegan is currently streaming Another Cruel Dimension, the debut full-length from Oakland esoteric death thrash miscreants HALLUCINATOR, in its ravaging entirety. The premiere comes in advance of the record’s official release this Friday, February 14th, via Carbonized Records.
Engineered and mixed at Secret Bathroom and Satan’s Sweat Shoppe in Oakland, California by Justin Divver and mastered by Charlie Koryn (Chthonic Deity, Ascended Dead) at Underworld Studios in Portland, Oregon, Another Cruel Dimension spews forth thirteen tracks of audio hell that pays its respects to Sadus, Repulsion, and Bathory, and includes a cover of “On They Slay” from R.A.V.A.G.E. (pre-Atheist).
Writes BrooklynVegan of the release, “HALLUCINATOR are a new-ish Oakland band who recall the era of bands making raw, filthy thrash that would soon turn into death and black metal (Repulsion, Bathory, Morbid Angel etc.), and though it’s obviously not anything new, HALLUCINATOR do it so genuinely that you might mistake their upcoming debut album Another Cruel Dimension for a lost record from 1987. It absolutely rips…”
