Skull-Crushing Heaviness: THOU and THE BODY – “You, Whom I Have Always Hated” Review

After having released an utter barrage of scum and hate on us throughout 2014 (both bands have released EP’s, splits and full-lengths throughout the year), The Body and Thou have returned, once again, with another frightening manifestation of their hemorrhagic output and prolificity, and with another monument to complete auditive annihilation.

Fuck-Ushima – First Come, First Served Review + Full Stream

Fuck-Ushima closed 2014 with their third release, the nine-track album First Come, First Served, and it is quite an interesting release for sure. Following last year’s Selfbeated and 2012’s Reel 1, this Finnish five-piece plays music of no discernible style, gravitating from hardcore to sludge to grindcore with a fervor that ranges from fluid to clumsy.
