DRUG HONKEY Debut ‘Pool Of Failure’ Official Video

Chicago-based sonic savages Drug Honkey recently issued their critically acclaimed new album ‘Cloak Of Skies‘ via Transcending Obscurity Records just a few weeks ago. The crushingly dense, scourging aural assault has yielded some amazingly volatile music that must be experienced with the utmost caution. Today, this beast yields a brand new official video for your listening/witnessing enjoyment, ‘Pool Of Failure‘.

Like most everything else that Drug Honkey exudes, the clip itself is full of suspenseful, sinister images that provoke you to feel endangered from just observing. The music is a punishing dirge of drawn-out, hypnotic heaviness with beleaguered vocals.

Vocalist Paul Gillis stated: “Pool Of Failure delves into the pitfalls of relationship and situational failures associated with life. This is Drug Honkey’s outlet, or vent if you will.”

So if you will, check out the optical nether realm contained in the visualizer above but do so with caution and a readiness for anything. – Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker

DRUG HONKEY Debut ‘Sickening Wastoid’ Official Video

Narcotic-like noise mongers Drug Honkey are preparing to unleash their new offering, ‘Cloak Of Skies‘, via Transcending Obscurity on May 5th. The pre-release hype for the punishing delivery of sonic abuse is reaching a fevered pitch of late. The album, which features guest appearances by the godfather of bleakness, Justin Broadrick and saxophonist most sinister, Bruce Lamont, is the baddest of trips seemingly. With crushing despair and abundant psychedelic savagery , Drug Honkey are poised to scar lives forever.

Today, Drug Honkey are serving up their video for the song ‘Sickening Wastoid‘, which is its very own frightening hallucination thanks to the twisted mind of Paolo Girardi. The morphing, animated album art from ‘Cloak Of Skies‘ appears alive and threateningly menacingly in the clip. Prepare to experience something you cannot un-see once you have your third eye opened to this vile visualizer.

For my own take on Drug Honkey‘s ‘Cloak Of Skies‘, check out my review of it over at Riff Relevant.
