Sons of Tonatiuh: Parade of Sorrow

Down-tuned sound savages SONS OF TONATIUH will bring their bottom heavy sludge back to the streets this Friday beginning with a show in Atlanta alongside Torche. The band will then writhe its way through the Southeast on a round of weekend shows through July with additional dates to be added in the coming weeks. The tour showcases the band’s new and improved powerhouse lineup of guitarist/vocalist Dan Caycedo and new recruits Twitch on bass and Josh Lomanto on drums.

Comments Caycedo, “The Mayans were wrong… SONS OF TONATIUH are here to show you the way. Through a heavy, dark road of despair and retribution we will pummel our way through the Southeast and beyond with plans to embark on the great big metal bird to the old world, Europe, by the end of 2013. Anyone crazy enough to stand in our way can either join our ranks or have their heads split open from the molten goodness of our tunage. See you on the killing floor.”

SONS OF TONATIUH will be touring in support of their current full-length Parade Of Sorrow issued via Hydro-Phonic Records last Summer. A cogent onslaught of slow-roasted, riff-laden misanthropy and heavily amplified audio wreckage, Parade Of Sorrow was recorded in Athens, Georgia by Kyle Spence of Harvey Milk, has reaped critical fuck yeahs nationally. Commended for having “a heaviness of its own,” by Skullls N Bones, Exclaim fittingly compared Parade Of Sorrow to “sinking in quicksand, but they evoke panicked thrashing rather than resigned, churning misery,” while Broken Beard said that the offering is “every bit the Eyehategod worship as their self-titled debut, and yet they’ve squeezed this throbbing new pustule so hard there is pus and blood bursting out all over the place.” The Sludgelord agreed, “another stellar record from another fantastic band.” This Is Not A Scene added “…a savagely aggressive, sonically belligerent album that is among the rawest to emerge from the southern USA in the last decade…”
