Corrections House, the heavy supergroup consisting of Mike “IX” Williams of Eyehategod, Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Bruce Lamont of Yakuza and Chicago mega-producer Sanford Parker, have released their new album Learn How to Carry a Whip, and its streaming now.

The album is definitely a weird one, perhaps even more so than their first record. The sound is coated in harsh, industrially-tinged electronics, which provide a counterpoint to the lurching, sludged-out guitar and the ravings of singer Mike Williams. Williams is in fine form here, moving from spoken word to screamed word at what always seems like the perfect time. There are also plenty of curveballs here; “White Man’s Gonna Lose” is actually kind of dancey, “Visions Divide” is their take on an acoustic torch song, and “When Push Comes to Shank” breaks out the signature Yakuza saxophone. All in all, a compellingly bizarre document from some of the more accomplished metal minds around. Its worth a listen if you’re a fan of this type of thing, and its streaming below (via Decibel).

Scott Kelly and Bruce Lamont are currently playing shows together (as solo acts), including a stop in NYC at The Acheron on 11/13 (tickets). Eyehategod are playing Housecore Horror Fest soon, and Yakuza’s only upcoming date is a one-off at Chicago’s Empty Bottle on December 5.
