Published Apr 07, 2015More than two years on from the release of Baptists' throat-punching full-length debut, Bushcraft, the Vancouver brutalizers have dusted off a track from the sessions that didn't make the final cut. Better late than never, you can now stream a demo of the orphaned hardcore assault, "The Opposite of Loneliness."
The track takes a slow-mo approach off the jump, with a stripped-down and molasses-thick, three-note doom lick taking its sweet time to unfurl. The intro finds bassist Sean Hawryluk growling lead before the track throws itself into overdrive. The speedy back end, meanwhile, features some patented, mind-bending percussion work from drummer extraordinaire Nick Yacyshyn.
This is what the band had to say of their newly unveiled oldie: "Here's an unreleased demo that we were gonna use on Bushcraft. We didn't end up recording it for Bushcraft cause it sucks. Why did we upload it, then? Cause we're idiots."
