Mutation III – Dark Black, the latest instalment of Ginger’s extreme metal project, is released on PledgeMusic via the RoundRecords pledge at 5:55pm
Dark Black, co-written with Exit International/Jaws of Death’s Scott Lee Andrews, is available in digital, CD and Vinyl formats, (all formats include the digital edition). The album features a range of musicians including Devin Townsend, Phil Campbell, Givvi Flynn and Jon Poole.
For a taste of the mayhem in store, check out first video Irritant, directed by Oly Edkins:
Says Ginger: “I really can’t wait to see what you guys make of this new Mutation album. It’s not for everyone, obviously, but I absolutely love it.
The most intense of the three albums, I’m very proud of what me and Scott Exit have achieved here, wrestling mental health issues into sonic form, while Jase Edwards and Dave Draper have done an amazing job creating the sonic landscapes here.
We’ll be taking Mutation on the road in 2017, so for those of you with a taste for the extreme please keep your eyes open for tour dates.”
Says Scott: “Dark Black” is not the kind of record to have a standout single or a track that represents the whole album but being human and full of contradictions it’s safe to say ‘Irritant’ is a good place to start. Even though we intended to make music that was an ordeal to sit through, Ginger and myself are hardwired for hooks…..This is a good example of that. And that chorus? Even the most optimistic person you know would find a time to belt that mantra internally. Two men’s misery is now everybody’s noise-punk singalong”
