Holy Things are For the Holy, the latest EP from Ontario grind/noise collective Column of Heaven, is about as subtle as a spoonful of steel wool. It’s a slow, painful bite and an alarming swallow. It travels throughout you, leaving scars and marks, and coming out unchanged; but fully changing you.
This might just be the longest mixtape ever made, and it has been created by ANbRx, aka Agoraphobic Nosebleed. It’s yours for free – over 11 1/2 hours of experimental sonic DMT…follow the link below!
“The Minutes Felt Like Hours” was recorded in one take 11/9/2013 Produced by J. Randall for the ANbRx Pharmaceuticals group llc. Because of its length (over 11.5 hours) the file size for this recording was just too large to master and as result is relatively quiet, please adjust the volume on your system audio player as needed. This recording was inspired by the shifting visual geometry and time. distortion one can experience from smoking N,N-Dimethyltryptamine.
Right now I’m driving this car called life, and everything around is closing in on me. I feel like I need a release for these unwanted emotions. So I crank up the new DRUGS OF FAITH EP Architectural Failures that will be released on Nov. 26th via Malokul! Over the course of four songs, this band will have the ghost of our human condition knocking on your skull. CVLT Nation is ultra hyped to be streaming Architectural Failures in full below!
Wow…this is a fucking classic…REPULSION live in a basement, and the year was 1987. Nuff said…now fucking head bang and wish you born in the 70′s!
Theories Interviews Sorrower
When did Sorrower become a band?
We became a band when all our old bands broke up.
When did Sorrower finally stop being a band?
Shortly after we started.
Do you like Metallica?
Of course, James Hetfield is probably my biggest vocal influence. If you listen closely, you can hear to “oohah” that I add on to the end of every line of lyrics.
Sorrower Interviews Theories
1. Are you mad that your band is not listed on metal-archives.com?
Joe: What’s metal-archives?
What are your thoughts on all the bands jumping on the HM2 bandwagon?
Seems as though every year there is a new bandwagon to jump on that’s cool for the year. I try not to notice, hopefully grindcore will be the new hip thing soon so we can sell some merch.
How long has Joe been growing his dreads?
Since before most of the kids that read metal archives and play HM2s were born.
The Southwest Terror Fest is almost upon us, and today we’re getting you ready for it with a killer mixtape from Los Angeles’ infamous ACxDC. Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXXIV ACxDC was curated by Sergio Amalfitano and it’s an A to Z of what you need to listen to!
I’ve been going to shows since about 98-99. Ever since I started going I’ve been collecting vinyl and taking in as many shows as I could within my means. It’s a little bit difficult coming up with a mixtape when I just want to share my entire music library from the last 15 years of gathering music. Hell half the music I have isn’t on a computer. So I narrowed it down to some stuff I think either are basics everyone into extreme music should know or are overlooked gems that might not see too much exposure. Its an eclectic mix of grind, sludge, hardcore, thrash, d-beat, powerviolence, etc. Some of it’s old, some of it’s new. Either way this gives you a pretty decent incite into what I’m into. Its what happens when you grow in a scene like LA.

A quick word of warning: if you’re checking this band out at work or just around company in general, remember those all important qualifiers (music, band, etc etc) when entering “abuse hardcore” into google, or get set for a pretty interesting morning.
It’s a fairly similar experience listening to this first self-titled LP by Raleigh, North Carolina assault crew Abuse. (with a “.”), whose seventeen songs fly past in sixteen blistering minutes. Abuse. is a step up in every way from the preceding A New Low 7″, with clearer but still raw production and a harder edged, metallic sheen (not so much in terms of musical style as that all the instruments sound like they are made of metal, if that makes any sense). Everything feels colder, harder, more unforgiving.
In terms of abusive effectiveness, these guys have definitely improved their game in the short span between releases. As music as physical assault, think of Abuse. as the smarter, more deliberate and more sadistic cousin to A New Low‘s feral, unhinged meth head. Where that album flailed and thrashed uncontrollably, these songs pick a weak spot and hit it again and again and again with bone crushing decisiveness, and then flail and thrash uncontrollably.
