Idiot Talk - s/t

Fast and catchy as fuck garage rock/punk.

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Beast In The Field - The Sacred Above, The Sacred Below

A towering slab of evil-as-fuck instrumental doom.

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Variations on a Theme

I haven't been listening to much lately besides fuzzed out psych-doom trips ascending towards the firmament, so here you go.

best whatever of whatever

Streetlight Manifesto - The Hands That Thieve. This record is perfect. Fuck you.

Forest Swords - Engravings. This record is perfect. Fuck you.

Jungbluth - Part Ache. This record is damn near perfect. Fuck you.

Inquistion - Obscure Verses for the Multiverse. This record is damn near perfect. Fuck you.

Mammoth Grinder - Underworlds. There's nothing wrong with this record. Fuck you.

Church of Misery - Thy Kingdom Scum. There's nothing wrong with this record. Fuck you.

Nistikko - Kehä

Thrashy, crusty goodness.

Beaten To Death - Dødsfest!

Grind with some cool melodies and an odd guitar tone.

WN - S

New. Good.

Friday, November 8, 2013

The Coltranes - Man With The Hat

Noisy, grimy punk rock. Great vocals.

Boris - Pink

This is a fucking great album. There's nothing more to say.

Cheap Art - Desocialized

Raw, pissed off powerviolence.

Monday, October 14, 2013

Needles - three 7"s

So far as I know, the entire recorded output of this hardcore "supergroup." Ripping old school hardcore punk, members of Limp Wrist, Look Back And Laugh, and a bunch of other bands I haven't heard of.

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Punch - Push Pull

It's been a busy week, so here's one of my favorite records. Punky powerviolence.

Sunday, October 6, 2013

Prepare for the Mindscan - s/t ep

Relentless mechanistic grindcore.

Lord Snow - Solitude

Chaotic screamo/emoviolence. Brutal vocals. Very 90s.

Saturday, October 5, 2013

Cloudkicker - Subsume

Epic instrumental metal/post rock/whathaveyou. More riffs, less ambient than his past couple albums.

Friday, October 4, 2013

Siberian Hell Sounds - s/t

Bands, the best way to get me to post your demo is to make it rad as fuck. Shredding and heavy music hanging out at the intersection of grind, crust, hardcore, and powerviolence.

L'État C'est Moi - Anglophone en Tabarnack

They play that unholy combination of ska and crust known as crack rock steady.

Of Feather And Bone - False Healer

Grimy, dark hardcore. Dat bass tone.

Stripmines - Crimes of Dispassion

Straight ahead punky hardcore.

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Svffer - s/t 7"

Brutal hardcore/grind/powerviolence. Looking forward to more material.

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Subrosa - More Constant Than The Gods

New record from the classiest band in metal. Excellent doom with heavy emphasis on strings and multiple female vocalists.

Chronocide - The Solitude of Man

Destructive blackened grind.

Sunday, September 22, 2013


Heavy. Angry.

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Bossk - .1

More or less the apotheosis of the mid-00s post metal explosion, as far as I'm concerned.

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Cursed - I

Your irregular reminder that Cursed is better than your favorite band.

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Impalers - Impalers

Raw, relentless d-beat and crust.

Tuesday, September 3, 2013


It's criminal how little attention this album seems to be getting. Fucking heavy bluesy doom metal with incredibly brutal vocals. Maybe their best album so far.

No Fealty - In the Shadow of the Monolith

Crusty, heavy hardcore out of Copenhagen.

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Ramming Speed - Doomed To Destroy, Destined To Die

Surprised I haven't seen this around all that much. Great crossover.

Wiccans - Field II

More stuff I passed on the first time around for some reason. Awesome, catchy punk rock that takes the traditional sound in a new direction.

Alpinist - Lichtlaerm

The new Jungbluth inspired me to try these guys again. I now have no idea why I didn't really like them the first time I heard them.

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Forest Swords - Engravings

Good weird shit. DMCA takedown QQ

Friday, August 16, 2013

Mammoth Grinder - Underworlds

It's about damn time. Relentless deathcrustsludge.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Deathrite - Into Extinction

That one band that somehow manages to sound exactly like Cursed, All Pigs Must Die, Trap Them, Black Breath, and The Secret all at the same time.
I'm still enjoying the hell out of it, of course.

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Asymmetric Warfare - Asymmetric Warfare

Crusty as fuck punk with more than a little metal mixed in.

Sunday, August 11, 2013

Jungbluth - Part Ache

Everyone got this, right?

O - E|A

Back for a bit. There are 15-20 submissions in my inbox. I'm probably not going to listen to any of them. Sorry. This is good, probably better than their first. I've been jamming it a lot lately.

Lifeformed - Fastfall: Dustforce OST / breaktime

Dustforce is an infuriating yet lovely little game on which I have spent quite a few hours of my life, and it has one of my favorite soundtracks. Enjoy.

On that note, I will have to be taking a break from blogging for a bit. I will be without reliable access to a computer or internet for the next several months. There might be a sporadic post here and there, but for the most part this blog will be on hiatus until my life is a little more settled. Thanks for reading.

Engineer - Reproach

A sludgy and slightly mathy wall of sound. Before they got famous.

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Cursed - II

Hey, this record is still good.
