Description

Low Estate is serious music played by men inclined to laugh themselves to death. The title of their debut album, Covert Cult Of Death, is taken from the book The Insanity Of Normality by Swiss-German psychologist Arno Gruen, whose argument that evil is the result of self-hatred and self-betrayal forms the backbone of the group's thematic approach.

With backgrounds in classic metal, hardcore, and noise rock, the band has forged an imposing and caustic sound with a wry sense of humor, not reliant on blastbeats or atmospherics. Their off-kilter approach allows for sonic digressions that never overshadow the weight and gravity of the songs. Their heaviness exists near the low-end of black metal, with a healthy dose of '90s hardcore, and a dash of Jesus Lizard stirred in for good measure.

Splitting time between Austin, TX and Brooklyn, NY, Low Estate consists of Brendan Tobin (Red Sparrowes) on bass, Geoff Garlock (Orchid) on guitar, Jimmy Hubbard (The Year is One) on vocals, and Christopher Todd (Sannhet) on drums. The album also features appearances by Integrity's Dwid Hellion, David Castillo of Primitive Weapons, and Zachary Lipez of Publicist UK. Recorded by Tobin, it was mixed by Sanford Parker and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The Covert Cult Of Death is a winding and propulsive meditation on the world as it is, as it has always been.
