Straight up & down, I have no love for the LAPD. Way too many times I have been a target of their heavy hand of their oppression. They roam the streets of L.A. not to protect & serve, but to destroy humanity. One band in L.A. that are down to use their sound as a weapon of change are the NOMADS. They are about to release their new self-released 7 inch that is a sharp d-beat blade ready to take off the heads of any pigs that get in their way. CVLT Nation is stoked to be streaming this raging record in full below…you will like what you hear and you can pre-order the NOMADS 7 inch HERE…Say it loud: FUCK THE POLICE!
In Italian, ”sei vivo, sei morto a nessuno importa” literaly means “whether you are alive or dead no one gives a shit”. This should give you an idea of what KOMPLOTT sound like. Pure, emaciated, unadulterated, starving and corrosive ultra-violent gutter punk from on of the lost capitals of Italian (and modern) hardcore – Milan, in northern Italy. Formed by current and former members of Giuda, Horror Vacui and Holy, KOMPLOTT are one of those bands who’s urgency, incumbency and full-blown anger are something you simply can not fuck with. This band has sacrificed everything – the form, the sound, the execution and even composition – to convey all its energies in one single focal point: pure and unadulterated socially-charged fucking wrath.
Suspiria is the follow-up release to BLANK‘s first full-length Calix and a definite must-have if you dig fast-paced, dark and highly emotive Hardcore with its dirty claws deeply dug in the rotten flesh of Metal and Crust. The band from the Cologne area (Germany) comes up with a four-song EP that totally lives off the tension between really fast high-speed attacks and halting, teeth-gnashingly slow grinding despair.
Thankfully enough this is really far away from being one of those fruitlessly anxious attempts to bring together Post-Metal and Hardcore – Suspiria is an highly energetic, infectious Punk record above all, but surely one that isn’t afraid to incorporate elements of other genres if they contribute to the bleak and desperate atmosphere created.
If you are a reader of CVLT Nation, then you know that we are HUGE fans of The Secret. This is why we are so fucking stoked to be sharing this off the chain footage of their most recent show in Trieste, Italy. What you are about to witness is The Secret straight fucking destroy everything around them in Hi-Defintion. We don’t have all of the details, but the band is confirmed for this years MDF…So stay tuned America! In the meantime, check out The Secret punch Christ in the face for over ten minutes!
We’ve talked about this release abundantly here, and it would be superfluous and redundant to keep bragging on about how insanely awesome this release by the young trio from Pisa is. A debut album that represents the crowning achievement in Italian underground metal in 2013, by far, without the barest shadow of a doubt. Buioingola have made an incredible statement in the world of dark and atmospheric metal with this debut album of theirs, and anyone who is in love with the more apocalyptic, gloomy and depressed sides of crust and doom should put Dopo L’Apnea on their year’s end top albums lists. For all fans of Planks, Altar of Plagues, Fall of Efrafa, Year of No Light and the such. Let the shadows spill in.
Straight Power with nothing but violence is what you are going to encounter on the new 3-way 10 inch featuring ACxDC, Magnum Force and Sex Prisoner coming out via To Live A Lie Records. 13 tracks that clock in at just over 10 minutes. On the real, all 3 bands fucking show and prove! We so stoked to be streaming this 10 inch piece of chaotic violence in full below…
Unholy horns of everything awesome! Have you ever heard a record that has all of your brain cells spazzing out like a motherfucker head banging themselves against your skull and stage diving out of your ears? This happens to me every time I put on the new DEAF KIDS from Brazil, who happen to be one 20-year-old dude named Douglas. These eight new aggro tunes are for their new limited edition tape “I am the Sickness” that is coming out on Boue Records (ORDER HERE)! If you follow CVLT Nation, you know that the last DEAF KIDS record, their 6 Heretic Anthems For The Deaf EP, ended up on our last year’s Top Albums of the Year list, and I’m thinking this year they will repeat it! Damn, once I heard the the intro to “Christianity Standards,” I knew Douglas had done it again – this track knocks your teeth out once the drums kick in. DEAF KIDS are an ultra extreme mix of everything I dig, and I could blast this band all day long without getting bored. Imagine if Lemmy fathered Discharge, who went on to have a hellspawn named Darkthrone – this would come sort of close to the rawness of DEAF KIDS. Douglas is a genius in my book, because he knows how to lace all of his compositions with a blackened punk voodoo groove that creates electricity…Full CVLT Nation Review HERE!
If someone turns around and says Brazil and d-beat, the first thing that may enter your mind is Besthöven, to no surprise either. The one man band’s crusty onslaught is certainly one of Brazil’s finest punk exports, but in the last few years Deaf Kids have really been causing a stir with their own brand of fiery raging d-beat.
Similarly, the band is actually the brainchild of just one guy, Douglas Leal, who has helmed a couple of records with Deaf Kids thus far, most notably 6 Heretic Anthems for the Deaf and last year’s searing I Am The Sickness, which is a particular standout from the pack. While all belligerent slabs of punk aggression, sometimes a change is in order and this latest record The Upper Hand treks into some newer plains.
Right now my brain is caught in a tornado of barbaric riffs and filthy vocals! I’m listening to the the new WOLVEFROST demo and it way fucking more than just kicks ass, it’s a death blow to all of the weak hearts of the world. This Seattle band has created the sonic version of being eaten alive by ravenous pack of lions. Every track is a seething onslaught straight from the blazing depths of HELL! If you check out one band this year, WOLVEFROST should be it. I just can’t get enough of their chaotic riffs fighting against the primitive drum beats blasting out of my speakers. Cranking up WOLVEFROST is like having flesh-eating disease let loose in your ear drums. So let the fun begin and turn your friends and enemies on to WOLVEFROST!!!
