The Skinny: Following their critically acclaimed full-lengths Early Frost (2013, Deathwish Inc.) and Of Great Sorrow (2015, The Mylene Sheath), Seattle, WA’s Heiress land the knockout blow with highly anticipated follow-up, Made Wrong. The album consists of 7 jarring tracks that are all at once their most explorative, experimental, and intense yet.
Vocalist John Pettibone (former Himsa and Undertow frontman) sounds more maniacal than ever, offering up his trademark, madman intensity in fine form throughout the maelstrom. The bands sound has become even harder to classify, mixing elements of hardcore, metal, post-metal, post-rock and doom into a vehement cocktail of tension and release.
The band then signed with The Mylene Sheath, and on February 10th, 2015, released their sophomore full-length Of Great Sorrow, recorded with Tad Doyle at Witch Ape Studio (YOB, Lesbian, TAD). The album was mastered by Chris Hanzsek (Soundgarden, Melvins, Screaming Trees) with artwork once again handled by Demian Johnston.
Heiress now unleash Made Wrong. Recorded with iconic producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, ISIS, Botch, Pearl Jam), and once again mastered by Chris Hanzsek, the album showcases a progression into darker, more experimental tendencies, while somehow managing to be heavier than anything the band has done to date. Artwork this time around was handled by Chet and Rachel Scott for Glass Throat Visions (who also did the artwork for Early Frost), and is scheduled for a March 18th, 2016 release date, once again through The Mylene Sheath.
