They say only the strong survive and for Louisiana swamp grinders Soilent Green, no truer words were ever spoken. Hardly strangers to adversity, Soilent’s two-decade-old history is fraught with lineup changes, van collisions, murder, suicide and a hurricane casualty. And yet, they soldier on, driven by passion, patience, perseverance and a will to dominate.
Inevitable Collapse In The Presence Of Conviction sees the Soilent Green machine – Buckley, Crochet, Falgoust and Patton – strengthened by its hardships and rejuvenated by a new label home. Recorded again with Erik Rutan at Mana Studios, Inevitable Collapse bleeds with debilitating emotion from the epically heavy salvo of “Mental Acupuncture” to the bare-knuckled exigency of “A Pale Horse and the Story of the End.” Blast-laden and confrontationally heavy with the manic time shifts, sludgy breakdowns, Southern charm and sheer instrumental prowess for which the band has become so synonymous, Inevitable Collapse In The Presence Of Conviction marks the band’s most varied and instrumentally accomplished record to date.
