Hydra Head Records is an independent record label which specializes in heavy metal music, founded in New Mexico by Aaron Turner (the frontman of Isis) in 1993. It has two imprints; Hydra Head Noise Industries, which specialises inexperimental and noise music, and another entitled Tortuga Records.
Old Man Gloom (yes, that’s short for OMG, but whether that was intentional or not remains a mystery) is a supergroup which was formed in the late 90s by then-Isis frontman Aaron Turner and Santos Montana, drummer for Zozobra/Forensics. Current line-up also includes Nate Newton (Converge/Doomriders) and Caleb Scofield (Cave In/Zozobra).
NO is the band’s latest album, available as a double-LP set, cassette and CD.
In Decibel’s own words:
Some of these other show-off sites that premiere tracks from a really good group that everyone loves have nothing on us, because we are streaming a track from a Supergroup (yeah, I totally capitalized that, motherfucker) that includes dudes from six other really good groups. Which is kind of weird, because there are only four people in the group.
