Release Date: August 28, 2012
Black Market Activities proudly presents the one of the most anticipated releases of 2012: No Absolutes in Human Suffering, the third full-length album by Gaza.
From Salt Lake City, Gaza have carved out their own unique place in the underground with a sound so suffocatingly heavy, so honest and raw, it can only be described with extreme words. Decibel Magazine has hailed Gaza as â€œpure face-f@#$&*# noise-grindâ€, while Revolver Magazine has named it â€œsick and twisted sludgy grindcore - like someone threw The Red Chord and Eyehategod into a wood chipper, then used the results to fertilize an Indian burial groundâ€. As notorious for their message as for their music, Gaza remain staunch realists in the face of fantasy, confronting societyâ€™s hypocrisies with scientific precision.
The new masterpiece, No Absolutes in Human Suffering, pulls the listener down to new depths - the sound is smothering and inescapable, every note delivered with pure conviction. Yet above all, it is entrancing and anthemic - through the brutality, glorious melodic passages shine and haunt the mind long after the album ends. Produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Torche, Today Is the Day), No Absolutes in Human Suffering is Gazaâ€™s ultimate musical statement to date.
In the years since the last album, 2009â€™s critically exalted He Is Never Coming Back, Gaza have toured the world with the likes of Converge, The Acacia Strain, Whitechapel, Kvelertak and Trap Them. Gaza tours the US in May-June 2012 with Corrosion of Conformity, Torche, and Black Cobra.
