Snakewing - Burn It To Stop The Bleeding

Heavy as all hell punk-sludge-metal.

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Halshug - CS Demo

Heavy, stoner rock-infused punk with a thick, sludgy guitar tone.

Closet Burner

'Cause they're gay, get it? Heavy, punky powerviolence.

The Secret - Agnus Dei

Blackened, crusty hardcore. Not one original thing about this, right down to the Kurt Ballou production job and being released on Southern Lord, but it's rad as fuck.

Nadja - Dagdrøm

Probably the most diverse non-collaborative Nadja album that I've heard. Good shit.

Witch Hunt

Crusty, melodic punk, alternating male and female vocals. Discography was recently posted at Cut & Paste, check it out there.

Agowilt - Clocks Made Of Their Own Bones

Nominally black metal, with elements of doom, crust, noise, and ambient. Anarcho-primitivist lyrics. One-sided LP forthcoming. Fucking cool.

Kowloon Walled City - Container Ships

Speaking of this band, here's their new record. Sludge and noise rock, with a few softer, more atmospheric bits. Though I wouldn't quite call it post rock.

Ceremony - Violence Violence

Remember when Ceremony played powerviolence-tinged hardcore? Remember when Ceremony played music that didn't suck? Those were the days.

Pigs - You Ruin Everything

This one seems to have flown under everyone's radar, but it's good stuff. Noise rock/sludge. Think Unsane, KEN Mode, Kowloon Walled City. Smoke 'em.

Momentum - Herbivore

Not getting anywhere near the hype the last one seemed to get, which is unjust considering how much better this one is. Crusty punk songs about being a vegan.

Bubonic Bear

Noisy, discordant sludge-punk.

Forced - Accursed Share

Doom/sludge/hardcore, in that order.

Sakatat - Bir Devrin Sonu

Ripping old school grindcore.

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Harm's Way - No Gods No Masters EP

I heard Isolation and thought it was okay. Then I heard this and thought it was a lot better.

Asilo - Geografías / Wardance

Single from their forthcoming album with a cover of Killing Joke's 'Wardance.' Heavy, oppressive, murky doom.
