'Self-Distancing' is the third release under the Throwing Bricks banner and our most complete work to date. We did some stuff on here like we never did before, merging even more Black Metal and Sludge in our sound and writing our longest songs ever. This is also our first recording without a permanent bass player and with Jesse on guitar.
Recorded in July 2016 at Duct Tape Studio, Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Niek Driesschen. Recordings were made with the complete band in one room at the same time to capture the live energy. Only the bass, backing vocals and guitar solos were done separately afterwards.
