Landmine Marathon – “Cutting Flesh And Bone” (Stereogum Premiere)

Landmine Marathon’s fourth album Gallows finds the Bolt Thrower-nodding Phoenix, Arizona death-grind quintet finally capturing the energy that’s made Grace Perry & Co’s live shows some of the best over the past few years. It’s the first album featuring heavy-hitting new drummer Andy York. Which could have something to do with it. More important to the pull: Gallows features the band’s strongest, best sounding songs to date. See, for instance, “Cutting Flesh And Bone.”

Tracklist:

01 “Three Snake Leaves”
02 “Cutting Flesh And Bone”
03 “Knife From My Sleeve”
04 “Liver And Lungs”
05 “Dead Horses”
06 “Cloaked In Red”
07 “Beaten And Left Blind”
08 “Morbidity”
