Yo, slime lovers, check it out, the two absolute best Italian stench-core/rotten crust bands (and among the best in the world for that matter) have just released a handful of releases which appear to have come out at the same time, and which are all fucking awesome, of course. What’s interesting is that the two bands also share some common members and appear to be an extended family of sorts in the Italian crust underground. Regardless, what’s really amazing about these two bands is just their awesomely decomposing-sounding music, which is hands down some of the best Deviated Instinct and Antisect-styled crusty filthy punk metal you will hear these days.
Anderson Cook has been busy. Having been introduced to the various projects he’s involved in, I consistently find myself enjoying the fruit of all of it, no matter how bitter it may seem to others.
Last we heard from his outlet for antipathy Pornography was through an assembly of his efforts thus far in This Is A Collection, which I reviewed not long ago. It was a strong display of his work with multiple split mates and newer inclinations which left me patiently waiting for word of his next step in this form.
Well here it is: CVLT NATION is premiering material from a new lathe-cut 7″ single housing two new abrading compositions, featuring friends and collaborators Tyler Coburn (Yautja) on drums and Jared Moran (54R, Yzordderrex, Uzumaki, etc.) on bass to assist in its execution.
Together they make this recording special, as Anderson’s discontents flow into the ruinous constructs “Hex” and “Golden Sunshine” to produce one further notch forward in his gouging, alienated gloom.

FUOCO FATUO have crushed all competition and have plowed their way to the forefront of Italian extreme doom in the last few years. Slowly but surely, these three Italian misanthropes have woven a path of destruction in front of them in the European underground with the sole aim of leaving absolutely nothing standing in their wake as they trample over everything. After releasing a handful of EPs and splits, the band has finally emerged from the sewer it was birthed in with a weapon of conquer: a full-length album of brand new songs that only strengthens their status as stalwarts of all things heavy, violent and fucking downtuned to no end in Italy – The Viper Slithers in the Ashes of What Remains.
Check out Primitive Man and Obliteration at the Relapse Records X CVLT Nation SXSW 2014 Showcase, March 12th at Dirty Dog Bar! More info here…

Who are some individual musicians that have inspired you to do what you do?
Individual musicians have not really meant that much to us as a band, it’s more the work of some bands/artists and general atmosphere and feelings that inspire us to do what we do. But musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi, Chris Reifert, Fenriz, Quorthon and Apollyon have been very inspiring and offered guidance in our search of space.
Ever since last May, I have been waiting for the release of the debut album from DARKENTRIES entitled The Make Believe, and it has been worth the wait! Like I said in my last post about this band, “How many seconds did it take to know I was listening to a very unique band when I first heard DARKENTRIES? One second is the answer, because from the the first moment of hearing their song “1200-S” it’s not hard to tell that this band drinks huge gallons of next level juice every day!” DARKENTRIES’ sound is truly something all of their own and I feel so honored to be sharing with you their new song “I’m Tired Of Being Awake”. This unreal sonic journey will hit the streets on March 25th via the very special new record label Retro Futurist started by members of KYLESA. Now press play and allow the brand new sounds of DARKENTRIES invade your reality! Stay tuned for a full review of The Make Believe.

There is no shame in my game, I’m a mammoth fan when it comes to ELECTRIC WIZARD and I look forward to the day when everything they created is in our vinyl collection. When I hold any of their albums in my hand, I just want to roil one up to enhance my listening experience. I also really dig the artwork and design of every ELECTRIC WIZARD record. Sometimes I troll the stoner web looking for kick ass Wizard-related images. The other day I found my favorite tumblr right now: ELECTRIC WIZARD Artwork. Now it’s your turn to peep this page that is full of stonerdelic art…puff one and exhale the wizard!
