You there. I see it in your face. In the shitty cutup Voivod tank and throwback hightops you’re rocking. You’re sick of all the lullaby post metal, the dudes with pseudonyms running around forests, the endlessly microscopic labeling and infinite subcategorization, aren’t you? What you want need is a heaping,
Black storm clouds of death are gathering over the graveyard, as the hands of the undead pierce the hateful soil. To me, this is the environment in which HEXIS, an awesome blackened hardcore band, thrives. These Danish hellions are set to release a killer debut album, XI, which will be
“We seek to commune with the utterly Satanic forces of Chaos…” – Nihilifier, Erebus Enthroned. Erebus Enthroned have wisdom far beyond their years. Although their first formation stems back as far as 2006, this Australian outfit did not achieve a creative – or spiritual – consensus until two years ago.
Drowning in a sea of reverb, the first track from doctorshopper’s debut full length release hits hard. Massive in tone and heavy in weight, “Degeneration” is a slow, swirling descent into a world created by this group of artists from the south of LA. There’s not much that can be
I demand some ice-cold blackened rawness in my life, so that I can face the mindless masses of the world and stay sane. What I am blasting through my speakers right now that has my blood boiling is Brazil’s The Black Coffins. Unholy fuck, this band’s 5 song EP, Burial
Are you ready for 13:30 minutes of blood, sonic walls of rawness, and raging waterfalls of crustified fury? If you are, Sweden’s Age of Woe is the band for you. On their 2011 self-titled 7″, out now via Addiction To War Records, they give audio greatness a new death mask.
If you don’t know, now you know – one of the bands that inspire what we do at CVLT Nation is All Pigs Must Die. I feel damn lucky that I got a chance to see them live at The Power of the Riff, where they totally fucking wrecked shop.
Number One TOXIC HOLOCAUST Knock knock at your front door…the brand new sound of the Apocalypse has arrived, in the form of the TOXIC HOLOCAUST album, Conjure and Command, via Relapse Records. Damn, this record is so freaking rad, it’s fucking insane…every track is a sonic onslaught that I don’t
#6 Fell Voices at Eli’s Mile High Club I was able to see Fell Voices and Ash Borer three times during their time in the Bay, but their appearance in Oakland was particularly special. The lineup consisted of Oakland funeral doom band Lycus, San Francisco blackened noise trio Sutekh Hexen,
Unholy triple six…DEAF KIDS from Brazil is super fucking rad. He has a new EP out called Six Heretic Anthems for the Deaf – pay attention to every song on this record, it’s more than killer, it’s fucking ballistic. DEAF KIDS play the type of blackened hardcore that is my
Drawing up a top six list of excellent demo releases from the past year was tough. A rundown from 1-6 seemed a little unfair as the bands hard work and dedication is unparalleled throughout all of these demos. So, here’s the top six demos I’ve personally heard this year that are cool
Number One MAN WILL DESTROY HIMSELF Wow is jumping over 6 unholy fucks and awesome is doing back flips over pure radness…MAN WILL DESTROY HIMSELF is one of the sickest new bands in my universe.The first millisecond that I heard them, they had me hanging on to the killer fury
