If the Trumps and Bushes of this world want to brand me a traitor to their militaristic corporate worldview, I’ll wear it with pride! And if a sick post-punk band from my country calls themselves Traitrs and puts out an EP as radical as Rites & Ritual is, I will blast their
Mathieu Vandekerckhove is one of the prolific members of the Church of Ra collective, and his projects are as impressive as any of the members works, including Amenra, Kingdom, Sembler Deah and the sounds we are honored to share with you today, Syndrome. Following up on 2012’s Now and Forever, this new
Billy Bao’s Lagos Sessions, Or: New Takes On Classic Industrial Methodologies For A Post-Industrial Wasteland
How many bands who claim to be “experimental” actually…you know…experiment – as opposed to those who just use a couple dissonant chords and a few effects pedals? Unfortunately, not many. But, powerhouse bands like Billy Bao make up for all that is lacking in the realm of so-called experimental music. Billy Bao is infamous in
Just looking at the cover of Cemetery Glow, the debut release from Light of the Morning Star, you get a black metal vibe. Actually, you might even think it looks a bit like Mayhem‘s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, with the choice of colors and the contrast. This mysterious band sure

On November 26th, 2015, we let the world know that our BEST PUNK/HARDCORE DEMO WE HAVE HEARD THIS WEEK was created by a band named BIB! So after a couple represses of their demo tape, it’s now getting the vinyl treatment by our homies over at Deranged Records. This record is
Calling all Doom Heads… give me your ears for around 20 minutes and you will be damn happy you did! Earlier this year, we turned you on to ENDLESS FLOODS, and now they are back with a stellar split featuring UUR. How many times have I listened to the record today?
SALEM’S POT is one of those bands we’ve had our eye on ever since Dan over at Riding Easy put them on our radar. For the past few weeks, we’ve been digging into their new album, Pronounce This!, and these psychedelic doom mongers didn’t disappoint us with this weird trip,
Unholy fuck, check out this brand new VASTATION track, but beware, it will RIP YOU UP. Vastation are despondent and rad as fuck stench-crust overlords from Portland, OR (formerly known as Night Nurse) and their incendiary fusion of crust punk and metal is not to be fucked with. Apocalyptic atmospheres, crushing
Excuse me as I chain myself to my beautiful dream from which I don’t want to wake up – the new Architeuthis Rex is the soundtrack, and even in my sleep I’m amazed. This band knows how to clothe its drone in drama that enchants the listener with power and magic. Architeuthis Rex’s new record Stilbon is Dead comes
Dis Fucking NOISE RULES! From this ashes of Sweden’s Electric Funeral has come PARANOID, and this crew of D-Beat Raw Punk Warriors do not fuck around! Everything they have released is raw to the BONE – 100% KILLER with no FILLER! Their debut LP Satyagraha is an all out noise war on the
If I could, I would take the shit stain named Donald “Dump” Trump, and lock his racist ass in a room blasting the new CONCRETE MASCARA album called Perennial Disappointment! The vicious soundscapes you will encounter on this album have a transcendental effect in a weird way! Maligant Records has given
