Chicago's ARBOGAST Strikes Back with Fiery Single "Purgative"

Nefarious Industries, the dark heart of the music world, reaches a milestone with NEF100: Burn After Hearing, a compilation that promises to leave listeners scorched in its wake. Among the lineup of auditory arsonists stands Chicago's own ARBOGAST, emerging from an 11-year slumber with their blistering new single, "Purgative".
ARBOGAST's triumphant return sees them wielding a sonic sledgehammer, blending elements of noise rock, thrash, and sludge metal into a cacophony of chaos. Guitarist Mike Scheid aptly describes "Purgative" as a cleansing fire, a musical exorcism for the soul amidst life's trials and tribulations. The track's lyrics delve into the abyss of introspection, reflecting the band's penchant for raw emotion and unfiltered energy.
To celebrate their resurrection, ARBOGAST will unleash their sonic fury live at the hallowed grounds of Live Wire Lounge in Chicago on April 5th, 2024. Joining them on this night of musical mayhem are fellow purveyors of sonic devastation: Stonecutters from Louisville, KY, the enigmatic Wizzo, and the apocalyptic sounds of Tragic Times, all guaranteeing a night that will leave ears ringing and souls rattled.
NEF100: Burn After Hearing boasts a lineup as diverse as it is diabolical. From the instrumental machinations of EL DRUGSTORE to the dissonant post-punk stylings of RISK RELAY, each track promises to be a descent into madness. Notable mentions include the resurrection of avant-garde metal legends THE DRX and the hypnotic doom-jazz of ZEVIOUS, ensuring that listeners are taken on a journey through the darkest recesses of musical expression.
Mastered by the maestro himself, Colin Marston, and adorned with the macabre artwork of Eric Nyffeler, NEF100: Burn After Hearing is set to assault the senses upon its physical release on June 14th. Available in limited edition LP, CD, and cassette formats, this compilation is a must-have for any discerning fan of the macabre.
