"Ever since Whitehorse hit the stages at WFMU during SXSW, I was hooked. The Aussie crew's uber-brutal death-doom was impressive live, but would that cloak of darkness spread into recorded medium? Luckily, Whitehorse's Progression (which we discussed in April) expertly captures the band's dirge and destruction, and now that it's out domestically on At A Loss, you can hear it for yourself. Stream the entire Progression LP below. Totally underrated, and devastating."
Thanks Brooklyn Vegan, At A Loss and the Earsplit Compound.
The digital North American release of Progression¸ the newest full-length from oppressive Aussie noise/sludge metal outfit, WHITEHORSE, is now available.
Originally released on CD earlier this year via Sweat Lung Records to coincide with WHITEHORSE’s 2011 American tour, the digital version of the album is now available via all major digital stores. The deluxe LP format is in the manufacturing stages now and will be released in the coming weeks. For fans of Disembowelment, Khanate, Corrupted, Winter and the coldest slow-motion doom brutality will not want to miss this album.
In celebration of this latest WHITEHORSE release, Brooklyn Vegan is hosting an entire album stream of Progression now. To have your face slowly ripped off by the thirty-eight minutes of the album’s awesome, scathing, sonic destruction, elevate your speakers’ volume to the maximum setting, and click here.
WHITEHORSE’s recent massive American tour included several performances at this year’s SXSW, as well as a full Southeast/East Coast tour alongside The Body, who they also co-released a split 7″ with and are now labelmates with on At A Loss.
More news on WHITEHORSE will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime those who dwell nearby the band can catch them live at several local shows in their home province of Victoria, Australia.
PLEASE NOTE: Oustside North America Progression is officially available digitally from http://whitehorsedestroys.bandcamp.com

Oppressive Australian sludge/metal unit WHITEHORSE have confirmed that they will release their latest album, Progression, on both 12″ LP and digital download formats to North America via At A Loss Recordings this Summer.
Progression was initially released early this year on CD by Sweat Lung Records, to coincide with WHITEHORSE’s 2011 American tour. The brutal venture took the band through a massive amount of the country, including several performances at this year’s SXSW as well as a full Southeast/East Coast tour alongside The Body, who they not only co-released a split 7″ with but who are also now labelmates with via At A Loss Recordings. At A Loss will release Progression digitally on July 5, 2011, and the deluxe LP vinyl format will be released later in the Summer; the lacquers are currently being cut at Chicago Mastering Service by Jason Ward, and a final release date will be announced shortly.
Progression LP Track Listing:
1. Mechanical Disintegration (7:38)
2. Progression (6:10)
3. Control, Annihilate (4:06)
4. Time Worn Regression (9:26)
5. Remains Unknown (10:45)
For the past seven plus years WHITEHORSE has united members of Melbourne’s underground music community, enlisting members from the punk, grindcore, experimental, and noise scenes, to create crushingly heavy sludge-metal layered with electronics.
Having toured Japan, the United States and Australia, plus having released eight audio documents on a multitude of internationally-based labels including Sweat Lung, Sabbatical, Conspiracy, Blind Date, 20 Buck Spin and more, WHITEHORSE hit their most productive point in 2010, performing in support of several international visitors to Australia including Birushanah, Zeni Geva, Om, Lichens, Wolves In The Throne Room, Monarch, Nadja and Coffins.
Promos of Progression, as well as interviews with WHITEHORSE, will be made available to North American journalists within the coming days. Be prepared for more updates on this juggernaut act to be announced over the coming weeks.

Artwork by Brent Stegeman featuring a "Doom rant" by Seldon Hunt (see below)
White faced terror in the heart of the great pit of darkness, where timeless beings are squashed beneath aeons of frozen blood and the black and fetid menstruation of the Goddess of Despair. Gloating fish faced brethren breathe poisoness gasses into the sleeping forms of the children of teeth, bred by the godless to feast on the souls of the damned. Scarred and frostbitten giants skin themselves alive in front of audiences of crumbling stone, as lime and faeces turns to gold in the streets of Valhalla. Time stands still in the great dome where the last giant harp strums its chords of doom, stars quiver in distant galaxies, where time and space evaporate, and the face of evil grins through the shimmering of the final breathe. The eternal scream that damns us all burns the final hole into the endless horizon, for we are all forsaken, gloom hangs us by the threads of our salvation, our lungs burnt to fine powder and our final memories collected by those that bear the mantle of emptiness, for they are Whitehorse, broken and eternal, their unholy scream an abortion, a sacrifice to the nameless ones whose mouths and stomachs are ever hungry for those who wish to taste the wordless and formless, a fruit that stands between damnation and the true and final joyous apocalypse. Stand before Whitehorse and let their hot primeval wind feed on your being, let their hunger erupt in red and black clouds across an horizon of snow and fire that knows no mercy. - Seldon Hunt 11th of March 2005
