The wait is finally over as the brand new ENABLER EP 'SHIFT OF REDEMPTION' hits vinyl-friendly retailers and major digital outlets today! Click here to pick up the vinyl version or if vinyl isn't your thing, pick up the digital version on iTunes. The first pressing of vinyl is limited to 1,000 copies, with 350 copies pressed on gold wax and 650 on clear. Vinyl version includes a digital download coupon.
Reviews have been pouring in and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
Following their civilian and critic-lauded All Hail The Void LP, released last year via Southern Lord, Milwaukee’s venomous metal/hardcore quartet unleashes Shift of Redemption. The effort features four brand new tracks from the Brew City killers, and while a rapid release, showcases the band expanding their infectious brand of sonic violence into new territory. The recording lineup for Shift of Redemption included founding guitarist/vocalist Jeff Lohrber and bassist Amanda Daniels as on All Hail The Void, and welcomes new lead guitarist Eric Dunn (By Way of Sunstorm, ex-Harlots) and drummer Dave Mann (Mouth of the Architect). Recorded by Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings, mixed by Chris Common (Pelican, These Arms Are Snakes), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Sleep, High on Fire), with artwork provided by Raf W.

Following their civilian and critic-lauded All Hail The Void LP, released last year via Southern Lord, Milwaukee’s venomous metal/hardcore quartet ENABLER is set to drop a crushing new EP this Spring via Think Fast! Records.
ENABLER’s upcoming Shift of Redemption EP features four brand new tracks from the Brew City killers, and while a rapid release, showcases the band expanding their infectious brand of sonic violence into new territory. The recording lineup for Shift of Redemption included founding guitarist/vocalist Jeff Lohrber and bassist Amanda Daniels as on All Hail The Void, and welcomes new lead guitarist Eric Dunn (By Way of Sunstorm, ex-Harlots) and drummer Dave Mann (Mouth of the Architect). The brutal anthems were recorded by Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings, mixed by Chris Common (Pelican, These Arms Are Snakes), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Sleep, High on Fire), with artwork provided by Raf W.
The EP is now confirmed for release via Think Fast! Records worldwide on April 9th via digital download and 7”; the first pressing limited to 1,000 copies, with 350 copies pressed on gold wax and 650 on clear.
Preceding the release of Shift of Redemption, ENABLER will trek across the Atlantic for their maiden Europe tour. Confirmed for a sixteen-city massacre alongside Finnish grinders Rotten Sound and Swedish crust/metal squad Martyrdöd, the mayhem will begin with a sendoff show in Dayton, Ohio on February 18th.

HOUR OF THE WOLF "Decompositions Vol. II" is officially out today! You can purchase it on iTunes for $9.99 or you can get a limited edition colored vinyl version from our webstore right here for 12 bucks! The vinyl version comes with a download coupon and a bonus disc of the band's 2009 Obsolete EP on Hellfish - all neatly packaged in a gatefold jacket.
If you pre-ordered the record from our webstore, it will be shipping today. We had intended on these shipping earlier as we've had the vinyl in our hands for weeks, but the koozies that were included with one of the pre-order bundles has been taking forever to get printed... so our merch company was holding off on shipping the pre-orders in hopes to ship the koozies WITH the records (all in one package as originally planned) and get everything out the door at one time. That being said, we don't think it's fair to make people wait till after the street date to get their records when a piece of foam is causing a hold up, so we expressed this concern to our merch company, they agreed, and the koozies will now be shipping separately as soon as they're ready! This will very likely happen before this coming weekend, so please bear with us and try not to think too many angry thoughts as your sipping your slightly warm beverage of choice.
For those who haven't been paying attention, Decompositons Vol. II is the second half of a complete Hour of the Wolf collection. It marks the first time many of these tracks have ever been released on vinyl – including 2007’s Waste Makes Waste EP, various unreleased covers, and the out-of-print split with Lewd Acts.
