One of our favorite things about being a part of CVLT Nation is when our readers send us rad shit to share with all of you! So we were super stoked when Eli sent us The Springcore Mixtape for CVLT Nation compiled by Eli Zeger, Carrigan Miller and Margot Drukker! Check out this insane barrage of tunes below!
It’s spring. The birds are squawking, a bunch of fucking bugs are splattering against our windshields, and pollen is cursing our nostrils.
Here’s some rad hardcore ranging from thrashers Municipal Waste to indie-punkers No Age that will definitely massacre the next few months.

For more than two decades, DOOM has stood firm and created some of the raddest crust on this planet! A couple weeks ago, they made their way to Vancouver and straight fucking ripped shit. Our comrade Ted Reckoning was on hand and captured the gnarly on film. The night started off with Rapid Loss and Koszmar who both ripped shit. Now check out these unreal pictures of all 3 bands!
Now this great news: BELGRADO is working on a new album which I can not wait for and I know I’m not alone. Check this out – they have just put out a video for one of their new songs called “Untitled.” From seeing this visual, I know the BELGRADO record is going to kill…stay tuned for more news!
Can you see the pain in color? Can you see the revolution in color? Can you see the ghost of right now in color? Frida Kahlo was an artist that worked magic with her creative expression, and became an artist that would go on to change the world. When I look into her paintings, I see joy surrounded by anguish. For some reason, Frida’s style inspires me to make it through my hard times on this planet. I have so much respect for her – the way she gave a voice to the voiceless. Frida’s pieces are decades old, but still resonate with the human condition that we all face today. Something I find interesting is the way she used vibrant colors to paint gothic scenes of surrealism. Today CVLT Nation celebrates Frida Kahlo with an essay of her work, plus we are showing the Frida Documentary…May the ghost of color haunt me forever!
Excuse me as I take in the resin-coated riffs of DEMON LUNG into my brain. On June 4th, the band releases their new album entitled The Hundredth Name via Candlelight Records. Over 8 songs, DEMON LUNG casts their doomadelic spell that will leave you feeling high as fuck in their doom-laden slumber. Adam Myatt and Billy Anderson (Neurosis, The Melvins, Sleep) handle production duties while English illustrator Tom Bates (Vision of Disorder, Amorphis) drew their amazing cover. CVLT Nation is honored to be streaming DEMON LUNG’s new tune “Eyes of Zamiel” below!
So what do we have here? A brand new video from my old time homies HIEROGLYPHICS called “Gun Fever.” Not only is this track super funky with a catchy hook, but the subject matter is on point – tackle the gun violence! Everyone in the crew spits ballistic verses that will have you paying attention. BLAM BLAM BLAM check out the new HIEROGLYPHICS right now…this rad visual was directed by Casual for Wetfoot Filmworks.
“The darkling plain is here. This is the waste land: England, America, Russia, China, Israel, France …. And we are here as victims, or as spectators, or as perpetrators of tortures, massacres, poisonings, manipulations, despoliations.” –Fredy Perlman
If you want to talk about reads that hold, within mere pages of paper, the power to fill you with disgust, bring you to tears, and change your life, Fredy Perlman‘s essay Against His-story, Against Leviathan! is one such read. I’ve read it countless times now, and every read resonates deeply within the core of my being in a new way each time. AHAL! is more or less like “The Rise of Human Civilization 101.” Perlman goes over the rise and fall of human civilizations, and gives gut-wrenching explanations on how they each have impacted our birth in the belly of an artificial beast, Leviathan, who thrives on the disconnect between man and natural world. This essay was written by Perlman in 1983 and served to shape anarcho-primitivist thought.
