JARHEAD FERTILIZER Streams Two Absolute Steamroller Singles

Get wrecked by grinding death metal.

JArhead Fertilizer

Jarhead Fertilizer will drop their new album Carceral Warfare on December 8 via Closed Casket Activities. The band is now streaming two new tracks "Mark of the Beast" and "Street Successor", both of which will ruin you.

"Growing up, I watched a lot of crazy shit," said Jarhead Fertilizer drummer Dave Bland of the album. "My dad was an ex-convict, and that's where the prison idea came from. I was surrounded by that lifestyle. Many of the lyrics compare earth to a prison, and they explore all the atrocities of man. My relationship with my father definitely influenced the band, and this album is almost like me getting to tell his story since he passed away two years ago."

Carceral Warfare was recorded at Developing Nations with producer Kevin Bernstein behind the board, and features some left turns for the band. "It's also the first time we experimented with putting samples in the middle of songs," adds Bland. "They don't hear that much in death metal. The samples aren't just for noise or texture. They're actually a part of the songwriting."

The album artwork is also an important aspect of the story. "It's graffiti-style with oil painting, so it's grimy and angelic," said Bland. "The prisoners are winning this riot, but there are these beautiful angels unaffected by the chaos in the fray. One lady is blowing a horn, signifying one of the seven horns before the end times. It's a final warning. There are eight horns at the end of the album. You can wonder, ‘'s it over, or is there life still left?'"
