Any way you slice it, the recent CONVERGE show in New York was off the fucking meat rack. Again 1000knives proved why they promote some of the sickest hardcore shows in NYC. Hate 5 Six was on hand to video CONVERGE do their thing, and they shot this show from multiple angles. This might be one of the gnarliest live videos I have ever seen. As a unit, CONVERGE was on fire the whole set, and had the audience by their throats. Honestly, this footage will captivate all of your senses – do me a favor, make sure to tell a friend about this, because this is a must see for the world! CVLT Nation salutes CONVERGE, 1000knives, Hate 5 Six and the fans for making this fucking happen. All We Love We Leave Behind…this might be…make sure to peep this video below!
Full of Hell fucking wrecked shit in Brooklyn at the St. Vitus Bar, and the whole deranged nightmare was captured by Frank Huang. After watching this footage, you will see why this band has the power to make you shit yourself! As a frontman, Dylan reminds me of the bastard child of Ian Curtis and Henry Rollins because of the way he delivers his whole being into every moment he has on stage. Full of Hell is a sonic unit that focuses on bringing a new kind of heavy to music, and in my book, they are doing great fucking job! Check out their southeast tour dates after the jump!
Tour Dates after the jump!
A couple of months ago, Consouling Sounds released a transcendental album by Church of Ra member SYNDROME, entitled Now and Forever. Now this project has a new life in the form of an epic video by Tine Guns. Just like the audio version of this record, this visual works on so many different levels to evoke emotion and also give space for your imagination to flourish. SYNDROME has a view of the universe that I respect, and this visual only strengthens my regard. CVLT Nation would like to thank everyone that took part in creating this moving piece, and to read our review of Now and Forever go HERE!
Deep in the underworld of St. Louis live the sludge/doom demons FISTER. These humans not only create ultra gnarly tunes, but are also very prolific in the process. So far this year they have released two EP’S – The Infernal Paramount( pre-order HERE) & Violence, plus a compilation of all of their demos. Head over to the FISTER bandcamp so you can get your download on at name your own price styles! Right now I want to talk about the extra blazing video they conjured for their song “DEAF WISH” off of The Infernal Paramount. The visual is not only mad fucking heavy, but the song is also a fucking banger! So peep this motherfucking killer video below, but make sure you don’t burn your eyes out in the process. Stay tuned for some full FISTER reviews!
All hell broke loose this past weekend in Tampa, Florida, at the Scion Rock Fest, and South Florida Hardcore was on hand to capture it! One set he filmed that blew my mind was ALL PIGS MUST DIE. If you don’t know, now you know: we are huge fans of APMD. So we are beyond stoked to be sharing with you their full, off-the-chain set! Peep them totally destroy everything below and big shout out to the head bangers/skull crushers!
Fucking amazing!! WHIRLWIND HARDCORE Vol 1 is showing today on CVLT Nation. This collection of live footage from the likes of CHAOS UK, ATTITUDE, NAPALM DEATH, HERESY, ELECTRO HIPPIES, CHRIST ON PARADE, CONCRETE SOX, RIPCORD and many fucking more is priceless. All of this action was shot on VHS, but with the invention of the internet now other generations of underground music weirdos can enjoy it too. What impresses me about WHIRLWIND HARDCORE Vol 1 is how creators were able to capture so many awesome British bands that can only be seen in this video. Now tune into a hardcore history lesson and see how the gnarly school wrecked shit after the jump!
So here is some killer news: one of our favorite young video directors, Max Moore, has done it again by creating an off the hook video for WHIPS/CHAINS‘ song “Secular Front.” This band has just joined the DEATHWISH roster and already have their EP Master/Slave on sale HERE! The visuals for this apocalyptic d-beat war cry are eye catching for sure. You can feel that both Max & WHIPS/CHAINS shared input to create something that represents the band 100%. Master/Slave is a sick EP, so you better check it out! In the meantime, make your way to the front and check out the “Secular Front” video below!
Wackness has hip hop in a chokehold, and is trying its best to kill the art form with mindless rhymes that are drowning themselves in disposable beats! Out of this polluted ocean of negative rap, nothing can prosper but a lost generation. DEATH GRIPS are a group that exist on their own planet of creativity, where there are no prisons of the mind to lock down their creative spirit. In their own way, these aliens have been able to inject the avant garde expression of punk rock into their off-kilter rhyme patterns and apocalyptic beats. The best way to experience the force of
DEATH GRIPS is to see them as well as hear them. This why today CVLT Nation would like to salute these humans for cooking up some killer dystopian slop with an epic video essay! Peep the stream of DEATH GRIPS album Exmilitary below and their mind-altering visuals after the jump!

One record that I went apeshit for last year was LOST TRIBE’s debut album on Blind Prophet – it is a modern day D-Beat/Deathrock classic! Everything about this band’s music gets me stoked, from their dirty baselines to their awesome lyrics and dynamic vocal delivery. The good news is that LOST TRIBE have just released a spot on video for GUNK. It’s a trippy black & white performance visual that captures cryptic spirit of the tune! So tune into a band that marches to the boneyard beat, and they just might put you under their spell…peep LOST TRIBE GUNK video below.
So what happens when you have a group of very talented musicians from Seattle with a frontman that is possessed by demons from another world? You end up with THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES, who straight made music on their own terms from 2002 until 2009. After 3 killer albums, mad splits and loads of tours around the world, they called it quits, but their music lives on. If you ever had a chance to see them live, you know that these humans gave their all on stage and knew how to fucking work a crowd into an altered state of mind! Today, CVLT Nation would like to celebrate THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES with a gnarly video essay. So after the jump, peep the footage and say Greetings from the Great North Woods…
