JDMP Been waiting a few to buy this album. Really glad I did. There is a lot of good shit on this record. Personally, there are moments of Gorguts on this bad boy for me. But there is also lots of noise alongside some incredibly pinpointed and dialed drum and guitar(s) work. The vocals are on point as well. Honestly, just buy this. You won’t be disappointed.

Kabocha Absolutely bizarre. Unique. It's such controlled chaos and I relish going back to it again and again to discover the mysteries hidden in it. It's almost so beyond brutal it's chill. Love it. Favorite track: Eulogy In Squalor.

Grimmrobe From the bowels of the darkest void, Hissing comes screaming forth like a newborn with an umbilical cord around its neck.

Fucking brutal. Favorite track: Cascading Failures.

Choco Latte Hissing's debut is a juggernaut of controlled obliteration and anarchy. If you're not familiar with any of their previous work, this might be an overwhelming listen. But if you're a fan than you'll wallow in it's glorious layers. Favorite track: Cascading Failures.

Seattle, Washington’s HISSING engage in dark, dissonant, cacophonous, inverted death metal noise and with their debut LP, “Permanent Destitution”, the three-piece have created a nihilistic vision of deranged otherworldly audial pandemonium. A soundscape of pure enveloping darkness and unrelenting chaos, “Permanent Destitution” deconstructs and builds itself through the walls and layers of pummeling audial turmoil and disarray generated through twisted angular guitar work and fretboard annihilation, surgically cold yet constructed and calculated death march drum ornamentations and monolithic bass pulsations that become interspersed with an overall dark overbearing ambience. With already being at the mercy of HISSING’s punishing sound fabric, that added touch of droning noise segments, also crucial to HISSING’s sound, mixed with the doomy industrial components become that final element to make “Permanent Destitution” a towering monument of primal avant-deathnoise.

Formed in 2014, HISSING had already made quite the reputation as a force to be reckoned with on the West Coast through various live appearances (which included a major US tour with Sunn 0))), impressions made with their 2015 demo, and most notably with their 2016 self-titled 7” EP released by Southern Lord along with last year’s massive split with Sutekh Hexen (Flenser).
