Age of Collapse released Burden of Beast this year via Aborted Society, and to me, every song is an anthem! When the song “Hands That Take” is blasting out of our speakers, I get chills and realize this world had better fucking change for future generations! Age of Collapse made

Okus are a very new Irish band having only played their first gig in October of this year. But are very much old hands music wise with members having played in The Dagda, Bleeding Rectum, Fuckhammer, Sodb and more. They are to me like a hybrid between crusty death metal,

Now this is fucking ultra sick to listen to and watch: NEUROSIS 1992 live in Italy. A hour’s worth of footage that has them blazing through Souls at Zero material plus a Dead Kennedys cover. Shout out to Killthatcat for turning us on to this…Fuck all of the chit chat,
