The new Hidden Persuaders album “Tongues Of Burial” is out now on Dumpster Score Home Recordings.
Many thanks to Andrew Quitter for working with me again, and doing such a great job with everything!

The label says:

We’re happy to have our good friend Andreas Brandal back for his 3rd full-length album on Dumpsterscore! After 2010’s “For Einer Nielsen,” released under his own name and 2011’s “Folie A Deux,” under the Flesh Coffin moniker. His newer project Hidden Persuaders could be seen as a sort of combination of his past projects, bringing in the dark drones and soundtrack leanings of the work under his own name, as well as the harsh cut-up junk metal noise and lurking rhythms of Flesh Coffin, but it also adds so much more.

Here, the musical elements have been brought to the forefront, with creeping black metal-cum-sludge guitars leading the way. Raspy vocals and pounding drums serve as the backbone for highly detailed rhythmic noise percussion accompaniments and dark synth sound design elements that masterfully flesh out the songs with the obvious care of someone with his 20+ years of experience.One not to be missed for fans of truly experimental metal and highly structured harsh noise!
