Wolf Eyes to offer entire catalog on Bandcamp for first time, offer deals

Share on Nextdoor

Trip metal pioneers and masters of Michigan noise, Wolf Eyes, who formed 18 years ago, have begun to put their entire, super extensive catalog of recordings from many different labels all up online for inexpensive download. They're not skipping anything, either, from the sound of it — and some of these were hand-painted and vinyl-only offerings, released in an edition of 88, you know, that kind of thing.

Quality level is way higher than you'd think, too. Looks like they'll be posting five new titles a month, none of which cost more than $6 apiece for high quality downloads, and for every five you purchase you get a sixth one free. 

Here's what they wrote on their Facebook page today:
https://wolf-eyes.bandcamp.com/ FROM THE DESK OF WOLF EYES:
From the depths of the history-basement archives like a possessed witch trapped sleeping in a hidden cabin: locked & unfed in the jam-dungeon ala WOLF BASEMENT (from volumes of primitive studios all over eastern Michigan throughout the late 90's to present) has been thrown some raw rough scraps and is slowly creeping black to LIFE- Barnabas Collins style. From nearly half a thousand releases secretly sleeping in dust in private vaults: a new WOLF EYES Bandcamp emerges: full re-releases from WOLF EYES home base labels = AMERICAN TAPES, HANSON, AA, GODS OF TUNDRA and OTHERS -dating back to some of the earliest experiments to current demos. There will be FIVE a month leaking out radiation style into the digital world and soaking into the street seams of daily electronic social life to morph your brain permanently. All taken from the master tapes & direct audio: the closest you can get to a FULL ORIGINAL DOSE OF BURNING YOUR HOUSE DOWN = the onslaught tidal wave of WOLF INZANITY has begun!!! ALWAYS THE SAME: ALWAYS DIFFERENT: NEVER ENOUGH - NEVER AN END. Dive in and EX/IMPLODE!!!!
