Dayton, OH post-metal / experimental trio, Close The Hatch, released their fifth EP, Death & Resistance, on February 9th, 2016 via Red Moth Records and today we have the pleasure of offering up the entire 4-track release for free download! Loaded with tons of sludge and doomy elements, there’s no reason why fans of the aforementioned genres won’t eat up what this threesome is peddling.
The release of Death & Resistance actually comes with its own true tale of tough times, tenacity, and ultimately perseverance. You see, it was in June of 2015 that the guys had rough ALL of their gear stolen. This left the gents in a terrible position wherein, instrument-less, they were forced to not cancel tour dates but also studio time. Through the modern miracle of crowdfunding, however, the guys managed to recover much of the lost cost and more forward. Death & Resistance is the result.
