The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News, Tours
ORPHAN DONOR — the brainchild of Jared Stimpfl, the explosive drummer of infamous sludge/hardcore trio Secret Cutter – has completed a new album, Old Patterns. Finalizing the new record for release in mid-March, the cover art, track listing, a brief trailer, and more have been issued.
ORPHAN DONOR‘s sound is reminiscent of mostly early 2000s screamo and metalcore era, with influences taken from PG99, As The Sun Sets, Jerome’s Dream, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Examination Of The…, Orchid, and even Deftones. Old Patterns makes use of the dark, melodic, and dissonant melodies that give an eerie sense of an emotional breakdown of rational reality. Grinding, fierce drums pave the way to the riffs that serve as a metronome for the stream of consciousness that is laid out on the drums. Perfectly placed and chilling vocals fill out the chaos.
Besides the album’s vocals, which were provided by Chris Pandolofo of Clouds Collide, every instrument on Old Patterns was played, recorded, and mixed by Stimpfl in his home studio, Captured Recording Studios, where he’s recorded the likes of Jesus Piece, Ultramantis Black, Secret Cutter, Tile, Hell To Pay, and others. The album was mastered by Ryan Haft and completed with artwork by James Revelle, who is also responsible for the creation of the video assets for the album.
