I wanna be a sex symbol on my own terms
I think I used to enjoy listening to this album a lot more than I enjoy it at the moment, thank you scumbag brain. Still if you like hardcore with a female singer, join the hunt.
Xnoybis, a great duo from Paris, if you’re into Dazzling Killmen type of sound. Listen to the whole album on Bandcamp.
Torrence from the Not Ok. S/T album on bandcamp. Surprising track on a release that mostly uses the melodic post-rock with screams dynamic. I think this straightforward punk’n roll style suits them better.
If you thought I posted too much about Children of God recently, here’s a link to another track from their forthcoming album, streaming on CVLT Nation.
Can’t wait for their first full length to come out. Press play twice!
children of god from california feature ex-members of graf orlock and seven generations; those guys play a brutal mix of neurosis styled slow music and grind and aggressive hardcore… it’s sick !
“We Set Fire To The Sky is different in more ways than I can describe. Not only has their sound evolved into something bigger and better but the way of writing lyrics was different. The theme of the record is isolation; feeling isolated as a human, feeling isolated as a species, and embracing that
from a Vendetta Records email (the german label releasing the upcoming album in Europe)
Wait for it…
Dead in the Dirt played an impressive show Sunday night, I’m not surprised their first album was released on Southern Lord. If you were in need of some angry uncompromising hardcore..
Get the digital/physical release on their bandcamp.

LOS GATOS NEGROS
WHAT? I can’t miss that if I’m not working that week-end.
Another personal favorite from 2012. Fight Amp delivers once again a heavy noise blend that I won’t try to describe further & takes several listenings to fully apprehend but leaves you wanting for more. I’m not as convinced as they seem to be that butter is a good birth control but something might have been lost in translation.
Fight Amp are a nastily (yes, nastily) loud band whose follow up to the stellar Manners and Praisefinds the band exploring a whole new territory of punk meets metal. Tracks like Shallow Grave showcase the group’s ability to grasp narrative all the while pummeling the listener into submission with every note.
The Catalyst, one of my favorite band from Richmond finally released a new album. It might not be recent news but I’ve been waiting so long since Swallow your teeth (3 years?) that it doesn’t matter anymore. Expect some heavy noisy hardcore/punk’n roll that doesn’t forget to groove & everything you liked about grunge bands in the 90’s. Last time I saw them live was pretty impressive so don’t miss them if you got the chance & don’t forget to PLAY IT LOUD. Also streaming on their bandcamp if you hate Spotify. I’m still trying to understand that cover artwork so if anyone has a clue, please send me a fax.
The Catalyst’s Voyager is a true amalgam of the dirty, noisy side of heavy music. If you’ve got a blend of Melvins, Lords, Akimbo, Nirvana, and Coalesce sitting on your shelf of tunes, this is an obvious pick-up.

Gaza – No Absolutes in Human Suffering I had missed this new album from Gaza. I was quite disappointed by their second full length “He is never coming back” but after one listening session this one sounds like it might be more interesting. Press play if you don’t intend to sleep soon.
His Hero Is Gone – Monuments to Thieves.
It’s Friday afternoon, where is your hero? Stay alert!
