Sunshine State psychedelic death metal ensemble, Orbweaver, are readying to kick off a twenty-date stretch of roadside assaults next week. The live abrasions will commence on Tuesday, February 18th with a special hometown kick off show before the band joins fellow Floridian sludge assassins, Shroud Eater for a westward run of audio debauchery.
Guitarist / vocalist Randy Piro (ex-Hate Eternal, Gigan) admits excitement is buzzing about the camp: "We are really excited to team up with our good friends and riff lords, Shroud Eater, for the slow invasion of the Orb-Eaters...a tour which will take us from our homes in Miami, to the West Coast and back. Brains will be twisted, senses warped, and a mysterious trail of green slime will be left in our wake. May the strangers be listening!"

Orbweaver will be touring in support of their "Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon" EP, released upon the masses last Summer. Crowned "twitchy, trippy tech death" by Invisible Oranges, the critically-lauded five-track "Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon" is a multi-textured sonic exploration through time and space. Recorded at Miami's Pinecrust Studios with Jonathan Nunez of Torche and mixed / mastered with Brian Elliot at Mana Recording Studios (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Exhumed), the band transcends leagues beyond traditional genre realms with their cosmic fusion of Psychedelia, noise, and a warped interpretation of Progressive Death Metal. Shifting between these erratic, trance-like elements, the foursome produce interplanetary pandemonium reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled and wildly elegiac chaos.
"Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon" was initially released in a limited run of 100 cassette tapes via Primitive Violence Records HERE and on CD direct through the band. The record is also available digitally via their official BandCamp page where you can twist your cranium to "Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon" in full. Point your browser HERE.
"Death metal weirdos like Gorguts and Obscura hook up with the unstable bent of Dysrhythmia and Psyopus for a sensory taxing good time." - Decibel
"ORBWEAVER have definitely blended the right mix of atmosphere with the right mix of experimental technical death metal to make a listen that is superbly solid and second to none. Whatever you want to call this stuff, I definitely hope to hear more 'alien metal' in the future. 5/5" - New Noise Magazine
"What we're talking here is off-the-wall, structureless noise tech that borders on the type of irreverence built by instrumental group Behold The Arctopus, complete with insane space atmospherics. I found that very little of Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon actually made sense, but that in and of itself is one of Orbweaver's many charms." - HeavyBlogIsHeavy
