TRACK PREMIERE: Drug Honkey deliver nightmarish death/doom with "Outlet of Hatred"



If you ever wondered what going cold turkey was like after endless years of substance abuse then look no further than Drug Honkey, a band who prey on your vulnerabilities and your worst fears, delivering a brutal and nightmarish aural drug which will have you shooting up your next fix just to escape the nausea. 

Drug Honkey have always been a step ahead of their peers, if there were any in the first place. Their brand of death/doom is something nightmarish, vaguely psychedelic and exudes a post-apocalyptic quality too. They've taken the vision of Godflesh and added their own twist to it, making it darker, surreal and morbid. And yet there's a strangely reassuring quality to their atmospheric music. There's a form of tenacity in their music of the same kind that will have you crawl ahead in life despite all its inherent ugliness pinning you down.


Following on from 2012’s “Ghost in the FireDrug Honkey are taking things to a different level with new album “Cloak of the Skies”” with guest contributions from the legend himself, Justin K. Broadrick (GODFLESH, JESU) and Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA, CORRECTIONS HOUSE) with his saxophone eeriness, and having the hand-painted artwork of Paolo Girardi (INQUISITION, CHTHE'ILIST) represent the pulsating sickness of this ambitious and unconventional release. Today is the day you recognise you had a drug problem that you never knew existed as Drug Honkey offer you another addictive and brutal track entitled “Outlet of Hatred” which you can stream exclusively below.  “Cloak of the Skies” can preordered here

This is truly nightmarish stuff. Sickening Wasteoid sounds like something that would be playing in the head of someone in the midst of a full pyschotic break as they wander downtown streets like zombie. Distorted figures in suits brushing past in a watery haze...well, you get the idea.
