PRE-ORDER IS OPEN! ”Riff worship at it it's finest, groove and gain is the way of forward momentum.” MODDER s/t
Debut album ‘MODDER’ forthcoming on Lay Bare Recordings & Consouling Sounds on 12” coloured vinyl is a mission statement of what Modder is all about;
Riffs designed to make your neck break, supported by thundering basslines and grooving drums. Surrounded by industrialistic samples and synths to forge an unique sound in the sludge landscape Modder finds themselves in.
Modder started out as a passion project between guitarist, songwriter & producer Mathlovsky and his long time companion Gregory Simons on drums. After recording and releasing their massive first single ‘Mudslinger’ (November 2020) wich is an impressive 21 minute long riff fest, combining influences ranging from Sleep to Meshuggah, bass player Maurice van der Es joined the duo to expand the sonic mayhem.
The self-titled album, wich was recorded even before ‘Mudslinger’ in spring of 2020, gained its extra low end as a result. Recruiting Maxime Rouquart from Greg’s band, Modder found their second guitarist for that extra layer of distortion. Simon Felix was approached to perform the programmed bass synths & industrial samples live and the band was fully formed, directly heading into the rehearsal space to become the tight outfit they have quickly become.
Lay Bare Recordings gave the band a home to release the ‘Modder’ 12” on after some back and forth talks, feeling familiar with eachother, the plans to go forward were quickly formed. After performing their first live show, in the dungeons of a Belgian Castle, Consouling Sounds was impressed enough to offer their support to do a co-release between the legendary labels.
With their first 12” album coming as soon as December 03, 2021, Modder has one goal in mind and that is to obliterate every stage as they will take their riff worship to every sound level possible.
