Ottawa’s grind Gods: The Vanishing Act just played their ten year anniversary show.
Instead of pretending I’m some expert on grindcore (I’m not) and embarrassing myself I decided ask Isaac The Vanishing act’s singer/songwriter a few questions.
Darryl: How long have you been a band (I know the ten year thing: is that accurate?)
Isaac: This line-up (more or less) has been around for 10 years, but I did the band with a friend (with a drum machine) for a year before.
Darryl: How do you describe your sound (grind, death metal, metal etc.)?
Isaac: I’d say that we’re definitely grind, though with some other influences.
We have a special mixtape for your listening pleasure today – Sonic Cathedrals Vol CXXXII AUN! This mix takes you deep into the underground, and was compiled completely from vinyl…so now check out the world of AUN!
AUN / First anal report:
Vinyl only mix, of mostly pre-1988 cvlt electronic-industrial tracks, all in varying states of decay. Focusing mostly on UK acts, and featuring Montreal’s seminal 80’s industrial act: Of Tanz Victims.
Capped off with some German and Canadian favorites.
Analog mix (2X Technics 1200’s+analog mixer).

It’s been a minute since I last did an ART CVLT Interview, so I’m starting off the new year with a homie from across the pond. Without further adieu, I give you Chris Alliston…
Q: What was it that got you into drawing and design? Did Punk and Hardcore have any bearing on the style you’ve eventually developed into?
I remember when I was a kid, first off, seeing some old Nirvana record and the cover drew me in straight away. I was drawing around that time anyway so it seemed right to put two and two together. I went through a ton of stages after this, mostly experimental, to see what I liked best. My work began to change as my music taste changed; I started to listen to a bunch of old Hatebreed and Terror and I started to find artists like Mark Riddick who I thought was just the best, so my main aim was to just do something and keep it as scary looking as possible. Then as I grew older and my music taste started to change, my work grew a lot more into its own thing, I think as I found new musical ways to express my work that changed with it, but I’ve always stuck to pen and ink.
Hand me the new FORWARD & TEARGAS 7inch so I can slap the taste out of warmongers’ mouths worldwide. This record will give you the energy of a hundred cups of coffee with a healthy dose of D-Beat angst. Both bands show and prove why they are not willing to bow to the seen and unseen corrupt powers. For over 9 minutes, FORWARD & TEARGAS will have the listener riding the crusty riffs of their anthems of rebellion! It’s an honor for CVLT Nation be streaming this record in full below…Make note – it’s out now via Hardcore Victim (AUS), Punk and Destroy (JP) and Havoc Records (USA).
“Fuck those who’ve made rock n roll suck.”
Today we’re exclusively streaming the brand new video titled “The Tops of the Rocks (Get All The Sun)” by The Vibrating Antennas. This psych-y punk band features members of Sabertooth Zombie, and will drop their debut LP “L’Ength” on Broke Hatre Collective on February 4th 2014.
The Vibrating Antennas are another addition to the overwhelmingly awesome “stoner punk” (not sure how else to describe it??) revival that has been going on in the Bay Area alongside the likes of Nervous, Creative Adult, and Purple Mercy. Fuzzed out guitars, reverbed vocals, and catchy riffs. What more could you want?
The band will be launching pre-orders in 2 weeks, and playing a record release show on March 1st in San Francisco, CA.

Five bands (well, technically four) descended upon Los Angeles on this night like the various strains of flu virus that have been penetrating and violating everyone’s immune systems for the past couple weeks.
Strong Intention ground up a fine blend of grindy punk sludgecore like a batch of fresh n’ oily coffee beans! This was the only band I had been previously unaware of before the show, but by the second song they piqued my interest and brought my ass up front to take a few snaps and listen.
Obliterations boinked and crammed through their set like Black Flag on acid. The level of light on stage was very low, but these dudes made up for it with the amount of energy pumping through their tunes. They shot fireworks of angry juice into the crowd!
Sometimes you need music in your life that makes the sun shine just a little brighter. Sometimes you need music in your mind that makes your thoughts just a little bit clearer. Sometimes you need music to paint your humanity with a kaleidoscope of emotions. The new album from AMALTHEA entitled In The Woods does all of these things that I mentioned before hand! Hands down this is a record that should be heard by many because this band has created something special. On Jan. 31st, this AMALTHEA album will be out on Moment Of Collapse, but in the meantime you can hear it on CVLT Nation!
