Seattle death grind terminators and recent Metal Blade signees, THEORIES, will a drop the ferocious wares of their new full-length upon the masses this Spring.
Titled "Regression", the ten-track bruiser was
recorded at The Red Room and The Boiler Room with producer/engineer Derek Moree
(The Sword, Pelican, Minus The Bear et al) with mixing and mastering manned by
Visceral Sound's Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) . The
resulting ten cuts make up one of the most belligerent releases from the Metal
Blade stable in recent memory. Recently commended by the LA Weekly for,
"bringing something new to the deathgrind table," THEORIES'
"Regression" is a gristly, fuck-all soundtrack to social
discontent, economic uncertainty, environmental catastrophes, and the inevitable
cycle of decay. Doused in gnashing, prototypical hyper speed blasts and
sub-nuclear riff incursions, the band's meticulously-executed yet
organically-scornful delivery is difficult to dismiss. Still, listeners will
find moments of dissonant groove and clarity, as well guitar leads not often
heard within the genre.
Experience the sonic punishment that is second
cut, "Cycle of Decay," now playing at metalblade.com/theories where you'll all find a host of
Regression preorder options.

THEORIES has been propagating the seeds of bleak, dark,
and terminally infuriated grind metal in the pacific northwest since their 2011
inception. The band, comprised of current and former members Samothrace, Skarp,
and Book of Black Earth, released their debut EP that same year. Their touring
campaign followed shortly thereafter, and have since terrorized the stages
through the US on nearly a dozen tours and to festivals including Maryland Death
Fest, Chaos in Tejas, Southwest Terror Fest, and their most recent tour with new
label mates, Cattle Decapitation. Vocalist Rick Powell, guitarist Lee
McGlothlen, bassist Kush Karimi, and drummer Joe Axler are of a singular focus
to tour as much as possible touting their punishing audio
THEORIES' "Regression" will detonate on
March 20th, 2015 via metal Blade Record with addition teaser track and live
abrasions to be announced in the months to come.
