Originally comprised of Matt Hedigan (bass and vocals), Ruadhan O’Meara (synths) and Lar Kaye (drums), the Dublin, Ireland-based trio of No Spill Blood started out as a side project, with each member bonding over a mutual love of DevoTrans AmThe Melvins and others, when they recorded and released their debut EP, Street Meat through Sargent House Records back in 2012. But after the release of the EP, the trio became a full-fledged, full-time band – and as a result, the trio eventually went into the studio to record the material that would wind up comprising their forthcoming full-length debut, Heavy Electricity, which is slated for a January 27, 2015 release. 

Album opener “White Out” is Heavy Electricity’s first single and the song consists of heavily syncopated rhythm, distorted and churning bass chords, sizzling synth chords paired with Hedigan’s frayed vocals, which sound as though his vocal chords are fraying. What makes this track interesting is that while listening to it you can hear elements of prog rock, contemporary heavy metal and krautrock simultaneously in an intense and stormy that will melt your fucking face off.
