Conviction, Passion, Spot on Aesthetic, A Keen Ear and Prolific are some of the words that come to my mind when I think of the Grimoire Cassette Cvlture label. When I listen to his roster of bands, I can not find one bad release. What I really dig about this

As wind-swept autumn hits its stride and with the icy fingers of winter waiting in the wings, it’s important to have a record to listen to that suits the seasons. A record that matches the bleakness of the winter months; captures the oppressive darkness that leaks in to your life

Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, Secret Cutter christened early 2014 with their sleeper hit of a self-titled debut LP. Their sole release following their 2009 EP, If You Don’t Hate Yourself You Aren’t Paying Attention, Secret Cutter drenches their songs in vicious, blood-churning sludge grind. The self-produced album was released all

Suffering Luna go a long way back. The psychedelic hardcore band was formed back in the ‘90s but has not been very active. They released a couple of split albums, one with sludge/crust overlords Dystopia and the other with Gasp, and then vanished from the scene for about fifteen years.

Metal In Opposition they call it; to me, it is polystylist metal, free metal, space metal — krautmetal. Whether from Germany or not, Qualeaceans play the most radical brand of metal, ever. The ensemble draw on every single form of extremity in music, hammering out their sonic tower as high

When your soul is black and you have the inner city blues moving through your veins, you create true soul music. This is something that Brainoil from Oaktown do so well. I used to live in the Bay Area, and when I listen to this band I smell the gutters
