More Info

Solo-Projekt eines US doom-Metallers (INCANTATION, EVOKEN), der mit METHADRONE auf dunkel-ambienten, fast romantisch zu nennenden Pfaden wandelt; Akustigitarren, Synths, hallende Drum-machine, amorph wavender Bass und mitunter elegischer Gesangselemente, das erinnert gar an alte 4AD-Bands oder sphrischen Neo-Folk, mit einem Schuss NADJA...

"METHADRONE is a solo project from American musician Craig Pillard, who in the 90s was a member of extreme metal band INCANTATION and currently plays bass in one of the best doom metal bands from USA, EVOKEN. Under the moniker of METHADRONE, Craig dives into murky waters of impenetrable sonic depth created by heavy and torturous guitar sounds. From the very first tunes of the title track Sterility you are taken down to witness the perfect musical desolation and dryness entrapped in eight inches of the silver plate. After a successful debut full-length album "Retrogression" on Craigs own label Subdrone Recordings and a split release with NADJA on Nothingness Records, METHADRONEs sound evolved into more organic and original entity, which definitely can be heard on Sterility. Being a natural continuation of previous offerings, the new album defines Craigs style and maturity as an independent musician. The guest vocals appearance by the incredible artist David Galas, who also mastered the whole album, added even darker and gloomier flavour to these doomy sounds. With lights out and headphones on enter into the world of sound where no life dwells" [label info]

"Methadrone is New Jersey-based Craig Pillard, and Sterility is his third album recorded under that name. Sterility brings us eight exquisite examples of the grungy and oppressive bass-heavy dronescapes, augmented by acoustic guitar and vocal elements, that Pillard has made the trademark of Methadrone. Never has doom and darkess been encapsulated so appealingly..." [S. Marshall-Jones, Brainwashed]
