Relapse Records, home to such artists as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Cephalic Carnage and Alabama Thunderpussy, announced yesterday that it signed Vverevvolf Grehv, the one-man metal project of Faint guitarist Dapose (a project formerly known as Precious Metal). “Metal has always been the most extreme form of music since its creation, and I’ve always felt a calm and a peace from it,” Dapose said in the Relapse press release. “Something like the intensity of a Buddhist monk’s chant, or the sounds one hears when riding a train, relentless repetition becomes meditative and allows a reflective process aiding our well being. Which to me is why many people in the metal world are among the nicest people you’ll ever meet.”
Dapose’s Relapse debut, Zombie Aesthetics, is slated for release March 4. Omahans may get a sneak peak at Dapose’s new album when VG opens for The Show Is the Rainbow at Slowdown Dec. 8.
Tomorrow, look for an interview with John Davis of Georgie James.
