The Skinny: Baltimore, Maryland-based sludge/grind assassins Musket Hawk will spew forth their sophomore full-length, Desolate, later this Spring via Unholy Anarchy Records. Check out the caustic sounds of “Space-Ray Houska” above.

A vile, near half-hour-long exploration into the underbelly of sonic filth, Musket Hawk’s self-produced, fittingly-titled Desolate was mastered by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Annihilation Time, Impaled) and delivers eight decaying tracks of chaos, disorder and monolithic gloom.

Desolate Track Listing:

01. Pollute Your Throat
02. Reluctant Punk
03. Jeweler
04. The Grove
05. Connois Sewer
06. Space-Ray Houska
07. Tweed After Dark
08. Candidate For The Knife
