Do you remember the final scene in Cronenberg’s masterpiece The Fly? The part where Dr. Brundle, now almost completely transformed into a giant humanoid fly (aka “The Brundlefly”), attempts to teleport together himself and a pregnant Veronica Quaife, to fuse each other into the ”ultimate family”? As you know The Brundlefly’s plan goes totally wrong, and instead of fusing himself with Quaife and their unborn child he ends up instead getting fused with the teleport pod itself, resulting in the creation of a monstrous and agonizing deformity made of human, insect and mechanical parts, that then begs Quaife to end its suffering with a twelve gauge pump action shotgun blast right in the middle of its bug eyes. Well, that’s exactly what Gnaw‘s music sounds like: like the moment in which you see the final version of the now partially mechanical and agonizing Brundlefly emerge from the teleport pod and you just wanna puke all over yourself. In fact, Gnaw’s music just sounds like a fucking hideous and monstrous deformity made of mechanical chaos, decaying flesh, madness, and uncontrolled fucking horror.
Heavy Demented Disjointed Aggressive Disturbing are some of the words that come to mind when listening to INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE.

Our comrades Aborted Society Records are about to release a fucking way beyond raging album by INSIDIOUS PROCESS. Over ten songs and 30 minutes, this band will hold you captive with their onslaught of fully charged D-Beat. All of their songs have a great sense of urgency infused with an almost bluesy fury. INSIDIOUS PROCESS’s self-titled album is full of emotion that makes you realize our fight against the status quo is not over and has only begun. Every song is an anthem against those that would like to do away with progressive thought. I know that music can be used as a weapon against corruption, and INSIDIOUS PROCESS’ music is a wake up call for us all! CVLT Nation has the honor of streaming this powerful album in full below…Nuff respect to Aborted Society Records & INSIDIOUS PROCESS…Pre-Order HERE!!!

Like a lot of broke people with good taste, I often dream about my perfect home – what it would look like, what treasures I would fill it with. I am not talking about stainless steel appliances or heated floors, I mean the artwork that would adorn my walls and tables. When I come across sculptors like Evan Chambers, I put them into my home furnishings spank bank for that distant, doubtful day that I will have shitloads of money to spend on things other than food and rent. Chambers’ sculptures are in fact utilitarian – they are lamps that stand on clawed feet or dangle from tentacles, jars to hold your potions/cookies in and vases for your headless roses and thorn sticks. They have a steampunk vibe to them, with the portholes and rivets and his heavy use of copper, bronze and glass, but they look alive in the perfect way to stand alongside a two-headed taxidermy fanged squirrel skeleton. Not that I have one of those, but I might, one day. Chambers is a skilled metalworker and glass blower based in LA, whose one of a kind creations can be bought online here and viewed below.
I know one album that is going to live with me for a long time is ULTRAVIOLET from KYLESA. They created songs that make me feel really good to be a human, and that won’t allow my mind to slip away into a space of no hope! One such tune is KYLESA’s “Low Tide.” Today, right here and now, you can check out their new visual for this outstanding anthem directed by Brodie Rush.

While I lived in San Francisco in 1984, I ran with a close knit crew of weirdos, both punks and metal heads. The interesting thing is that we didn’t treat the kids who lived on the street any different from those that had homes. There was a strong sense of sisterhood and brotherhood that bonded us all, and we always had each other backs. When I watch the 1988 documentary SADOBABIES it hits home, because that could be me or my homies. This film follows some Bay Area punks as they go through their daily lives. I’m glad that films like SADOBABIES were made, because they offer a look at a world that was underground and underrepresented or misrepresented in mainstream culture. A interesting fact is that many of the kids in this documentary are now dead. I can relate to that, since many of my friends from that era are now dead as well. Check out the film SADOBABIES – it gives a voice to kids that society wanted to dispose of!
