Today is in need of more killer riffs. This should fix that for you.

Isis - Celestial

If they had given up after writing "Celestial (The Tower)", they would still have been one of the greatest post-metal bands.

Sick Fix - Vexed

Awesome, heavy hardcore/powerviolence, Coke Bust connection.

Stresscase - Cut Me Off

Get you some power-fucking-violence.

Animosity - Animal

Holy shit, this album is five years old? I must be getting old. Anyway, it's good fun. Technical death metal with a smidgen of 'core influence.

Dangers - Messy, Isn't It?

This album is ancient history in internet years, but I luv it so fuck you. One of the coolest hardcore records out there.

Dredd - Recurring Nightmare

Not sick of blackened hardcore/sludge/crust yet? Good, because neither am I. Get it for fifty cents on the bandcamp, you cheap bastards. Last year's Cursed Earth EP is also up there and that's good too.

P.O.S. - Ipecac Neat

So some people I knew on the internet in high school listened to this guy, but let's be real here, I never paid much attention to him until I heard that he's distributing anticapitalist propaganda with his new album. Turns out he's pretty good. This is his first album. Get it.

Atlas - Beauty & the Blues

This is some straight up Tony Hawk's Pro Skater shit right here. Really musical hip hop/rap/whatever.

Lento - Anxiety Despair Languish

Pretty cool instrumental sludge/post-metal.

Fear - The Record

Classic punk rock.


Some good hardcore/powerviolence for your Monday.

Encoffination - Elegant Funerals For The Unknown Dead

New EP from the grimmest death metal band in the entire world.

Doomriders - Black Thunder

Totally stealing the idea for this post from We Last Longer, but hey, this record kicks ass. Ride or die, motherfuckers.

Cara Neir - Sublimation Therapy

Remember that one post-black metal band? Yeah, they decided to play powerviolent grindcore for a bit. This is more up my alley than their other stuff, s'good shit.

Mountain Man - Two

Now this is cool. "Atmospheric" hardcore, but not in the way you're thinking of. There's nothing post or sludge about this, but it's not super punk influenced, nor is it a chug fest. You'll just have to listen to it for yourself. It's worth it, honest.

Protecting and serving the shit out of you.

"Halevi, who was also pepper sprayed during the arrest, was charged with assaulting a police officer, trespassing, resisting arrest and harassment. He's currently out on bail and faces up to five years in prison for assaulting an officer."

Vitamin X - About to Crack

Old school straight edge hardcore.

Friday, October 12, 2012

Beep boop


Ion Dissonance - Breathing Is Irrelevant

You guys remember this shit? ID took the sound on Calculating Infinity and made it stop being so nice. Mathy, abrasive, and heavy as shit, just what you would expect from early 00s metalcore.

Trash Talk - 119

This has been a good week or two for records by bands I like. Thrashy hardcore.

*Shels - Plains Of The Purple Buffalo

Gorgeous, sprawling, epic, feel-good post-rock/metal. Somewhere between Mono and Pelican.

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Black September - Into The Darkness Into The Void

Criminally underrated epic crusty blackened death.


Have at it.

Ectovoid - Fractured In The Timeless Abyss

Grim, old school blackened death. It sounds like how you would expect it to, but not as boring. Muddy and evil, somewhere between Inquisition and Incantation.

Monday, October 8, 2012

Dälek - Absence

A classic. Heavy, dark, atmospheric hip hop.

Sunday, October 7, 2012

Bone Dance - Bone Dance

Sludgey, grindy hardcore. All the bile and nihilism that comes from living in Idaho.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012


Jesus, this leaked too? What a day.

Don't Bend

Well, that didn't take long to leak. It's been a decade, let's see how this holds up.

Pigeonwing - ***

Pigeonwing plays doom. Over the course of a single 22 minute track, they play every style of doom imaginable, from bluesy to droning to sludgey and misanthropic, but always colossal and heavy.
