Oratory Inner Pyre Bad Habit Records

Oratory — Inner Pyre 7 inch

After the great plague, Oratory reformed with a clear vision to forge Sepultura's Chaos AD with Celtic Frost, Discharge, Neurosis and Abscess into some hardened weapon-grade steel in the form of three songs. Hence the Inner Pyre EP spews forth from the gates of Brisbane City, resulting in some of the best extreme songs to come out of Australia.

This metal/hardcore onslaught was recorded by the band themselves, minimising contamination or compromise. Originally unleashed in digital only, the songs were left to the algorithmic whim, penetrating the online static here and there but mostly getting lost in the shuffle.

Now they are getting the vinyl treatment, which has only made these songs more potent. The range and depth of sound brought forward in the analogue format packs a powerful punch, providing ever greater scope to appreciate the songwriting and delivery. It's also testament to the masterful work of Jack Control, who refined these songs for wax.

The record is pressed on red vinyl that matches the black and red cover artwork by Murdoch Stafford and logo drawn by the legendary Japanese hardcore icon Crow.

Bad Habit loves these songs and artwork so much we actually had local artist Swak paint our front roller door with the artwork. And to be frank, this 7" is one of the best records we've released.

How does one describe Gudgeon? They have existed as a band for nearly a decade. They have been jamming and writing songs that whole time. In isolation, they evolved. Like some sort of Galapagos Island music project. Their closest relatives would be the already weird and outsider brands of punk. Think Nomeansno, Man Is The […]
