Viennese Noise Rock trio DESOLAT unleash debut for US american label REPTILIAN

Savage Austrian trio DESOLAT will deploy the gnarled wares of their second LP, Get Sick And Let Me Watch You Die, on June 14th through the roster of long-running noise rock experts, REPTILIAN RECORDS.
Austria and Vienna are better known for The Sound Of Music, Mozart, Empress Sissi, and cozy beauty than grim music. But Unsane’s Chris Spencer barely survived an act of violence there, Henry Rollins wrote about being impressed by the borderline assertiveness of the local punks, all time favourites of the city are called PUNGENT STENCH, and when the Viennese Actionism was up to mischief in the 1960s it drove worldwide astonishment. There’s legendary fields of unpleasant deviance and transgression in Vienna, and that’s where DESOLAT stirs around.
Established in 2018, DESOLAT’s grimy noise rock is rooted in hardcore/punk and infused with elements of sludge, crust, and death metal created by three veterans of the Viennese DIY anarcho punk scene, current and former members of Phal:Angst, Cyruss, Dim Prospects and others. The band’s beginning days were cut short as COVID-19 lockdowns were put into place after playing only three shows. Nevertheless, they have since managed to release two EPs and one LP, with album number two now on the way.
This time more noise and less death metal, DESOLAT’s crushing Get Sick And Let Me Watch You Die deploys eight ripping tracks with a riotous, relentless momentum, while lyrical undercurrents of political unrest, societal disgust, and a live fast/die young callousness shred their way through. The record’s artwork and title were inspired by Texas’ BRUTAL JUICE and their 1995 Alternative Tentacles-released masterpiece, I Love The Way They Scream When They Die.
Get Sick And Let Me Watch You Die is DESOLAT’s first release on legendary US noise rock label Reptilian Records. The catalog of this label carries such great bands as BUZZOV*EN, CUTTHROATS 9, PG. 99, LUBRICATED GOAT, NEGATIVE APPROACH, EASY ACTION, HEROINE SHEIKS, THE UPPER CRUST, SUPERSUCKERS, ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN, OXES, UXO, THRALL or THE DWARVES. The label released the first MASTODON 7" and some early PIG DESTROYER records and still show they are up to date when it comes to finding the gems in cutting edge rock music which was proven with the discovery of contemporary noise rock sensation CHAT PILE, NERVER, and more. The label spawned its roots in the Baltimore-based record store of the same name in 1989 which closed its doors in recent years, while the mailorder/label are still going strong, later moved to Philadelphia, now based in Texas. When it comes to the labels of the heydays of the genre in the late-1980 and ‘90s, the names AMPHETAMAMPHETAMINE REPTILE, TOUCH & GO, ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES, and MAN’S RUIN are synonymous with the output of Reptilian Records.
