Chicago's Indian won over a lot of new fans with 2011's Sanford Parker-produced Guiltless. That album was a stupid-heavy, low-end doom/sludge monster with ugly distorted vocals that rightfully earned a spot among the year's heaviest albums. Now Indian's back with another Sanford-produced album, From All Purity, due out on January 26, that's heavier than anything we've heard from the band before.

From All Purity sticks to Indian's punishing ways, but prefers a somewhat different method of devastation -- the album drones more than it blasts, trudging along mournfully to create a bleak, hopeless atmosphere. Indian experimented with noise elements on Guiltless, and now that is an essential element of the band's sound. On "Directional," which just premiered over on Invisible Oranges, harsh corrosive feedback fuzzes up the mix, giving the track ugly, discordant depth. Give "Directional" and the previously-released, also brutal "Rhetoric of No" a listen below.

No Indian tour dates have been announced yet, but keep posted for any future dates.

I have reservations about this band. I am sari I don't want to sihk this band out anymore. Aren't these guys from Buffalo. I would gamble most people haven't heard of them before. They were influenced by a Tribe called Qwest.

lmao.. how can people pass this of as music? some boring repetitive beat with some squashed sounding guitars in the back and singer who isn't even on beat. Never mind that because he's probably raping the shit out of his vocal chords. lets see if this dude can even talk by the time he's 50. and people genuinely think this is 'hardcore'??
