Ladder Devils “Clean Hands” In Depth Review-Full Stream-Footage

Let’s get this out of the way beforehand: Once I was contacted to review this record, and upon seeing Philadelphia’s Ladder Devils, I noticed at the bottom that they describe their sound as “…the punk urgency of Nirvana with the sonic experimentation of The Pixies,” which is a pretty damn bold statement all around. But the truth is that the Ladder Devils do deserve to compare themselves to those bands, along with a few others, because they absolutely talk the talk and walk the walk with this record.

CVLT Nation Exclusive Stream: VOICES “London”

London, like Vancouver, is a city of grey skies…sometimes it can feel as if the landscape is frozen in time for months on end – seasons come and go, but the clouds remain. So I feel a special kinship with the melancholy that VOICES bring with their newest full length, London.

Exclusive Stream + Review: Smoke – Het Laatste Ordeel

On this here review, we take on the venerable noise, black metal, punk vitrolic band known as Smoke and their latest release, the Het Laatste Ordeel LP. From the get-go, we’re swathed in a dense curtain of necro noise. The guitar sounds like discordant bass, and the cymbals are loud. It’s hard to tell the riffs apart, as they sound like they were recorded in a sewage tank.

People Jerky… The Fire Mummies of the Philippines

When I normally think of the process of mummification, I picture the old Egyptian-style pulling the brain out through the nose technique – which is probably historically inaccurate, but I think I heard it as a kid and it stuck with me – and not about bodies salted and smoked for months, until every drop of moisture had left their body and they were perfectly preserved.

You’re in for the ride of your life on this split album if you’re taking this with you on a road trip cutting through desolate towns in the central United States.
