‘Nightmares For Children (And Other Stories)’ is the debut soundtrack from York-based HFD (Hypnotic Funeral Drone)-act, The THING!
Taking some inspiration from drone/doom bands like Sunn O))) and Godflesh, and created with the sole purpose to force people to recoil in absolute disgust, the two-piece (featuring TC6’s Kreecha Honey [guitars, samples] and Seep Away’s Dom Smith [drums]) combine haunting samples with ferocious guitar work and intense drums to craft what can only be described as an abrasive, stomach-churning soundtrack to the death and destruction of your emotions…and hearing.
Of the track, which was recorded live and (very) raw at Melrose Yard in York, Kreecha comments: “The Thing’s most beautiful of childhood night terrors has been re-awoken for your listening displeasure.”
‘Nightmares For Children (And Other Stories)’ will be released as a free download on Friday, April 28 via Soundcloud – @the-thing-the-band.
The band will shortly be working on their next instalment of predicted psychosis – ‘Now We Are SixSixSix’.
