Damn! It will be tough to contain my enthusiasm when talking about this record. I hardly knew anything about Nashville’s Yautja prior to fall last year, but since then they’ve had my attention wholly. Yautja’s debut LP Songs of Descent is remarkable.

It’s a very grounding (and fairly rare) feeling

They originally formed in 2011 but didn’t release any recordings until early 2013, when they put out a split with fellow Marylanders, sludge metal band Ecco, and this, a half hour demo of raw, speaker-splitting

We all know the world can be a fucked up place and that it’s run by a small group of corrupt pigs! This is why I like much of the music I blast to have a message I can relate to. COMMUNION of THIEVES and DENDRITIC ARBOR have a split

What happens when a group of close friends who are bonded by a deep friendship, a highly socially-aware anger and an interwoven web of strong progressive beliefs decide to play loud, angry, abrasive and blown out hardcore punk as a vessel for the expression of radical and extreme vegan, pro-animal
