Please welcome An Isle Ate Her to Blackhouse Ltd.
AN ISLE ATE HER don’t have the typical story that most bands in metal music do. They were an artistic mathematical monster that took over Atlanta, Georgia in the early 2000’s, but it’s members had taken some very unexpected turns in artistic direction as solo artists after they disbanded. Absolutely manic break-neck tech grindcore that was as mind-bending to listen to as it was to see live. Formed initially in July 2007, Vocalist Chaz Bell, guitarist Collin Hutchinson, drummer Matt Cooper, and various other members performed under various names, playing countless shows and tours while constantly building their musical skills.
At the beginning of 2010, the band wrote two new songs which they considered to be beyond the ability of their former moniker’s style. Thus, AN ISLE ATE HER was officially formed and used the two songs and a few others and recorded their debut EP “Desiderium”, released in July of 2010. Since then, they had met the bassist Eric Roche and began playing live shows while writing new material. These new songs were recorded over the summer with Paul Hundeby of City of Ifa/City Pro Recording, and the band’s debut album “Phrenia” saw the light of day on September 26th, 2011. The band then went on an indefinite hiatus in 2012. Vocalist Chaz Bell has since transitioned into his solo work, adopting the name of Slug Christ, and joining forces with the Awful Records crew alongside the likes of Father, Playboi Carti, Ilovemakonnen and more. Not too long after, he even released a hardcover art book, Encyclopeadia Supermundanae. Yung Skrrt, the solo performing name of drummer Matt Cooper, started off in 2015, collaborating with members of CHON, Anthony Fantano, Kreayshawn and more, and becoming a prolific producer. The complete opposite of what AIAH was known for, this proves the versatility of their musical abilities, and well beyond, if nothing else.
Fast forward to 2021, a decade later, the masters were unearthed, and we gave them the re-mastering treatment. We are proud to soon present the remastered ten-year-anniversary edition of “Phrenia” on a limited vinyl release, and also, for the first time ever. Keep an eye out for updates coming this Fall, including preorder dates, colored variants, and more.
