For Nostilevo, an industrial label known to release small batches of illegible monochrome cassettes, a vinyl release is news. Come out with it. We fall on our faces each year to the wave of barely known artists…
As a participant in shows from an early age, I have always favored the house show, regardless of the fact that over the years, Arizona has at times lacked venues for the more underground taste in music, but things have actually gotten pretty awesome in the Valley of the Sun as of recent.
This album is another testament to the fact that they must have good drugs in Chicago, as their effects continue to echo in the music billowing out of the Windy City. The tradition of this chemical wedding is being carried on from the days Charlie Parker, but switched from doctor prescribed morphine to heroin.
Hello slime lovers. If in the last few years you have loved doom and sludge bands like Primitive Man, Fórn, Laudanum, Funerary, Sea of Bones, Cough and Whitehorse, then Chicago-based extreme doom hellraisers DISROTTED are most definitely the shit for you.
Today is a great day because we get to share with you the brand new video from DEAD MEADOW entitled “In the Thicket” from their album Warble Womb. I fucking love this band and their spaced-out form of rock…
Speed, Filth, Sonic Disease, Impure Thoughts of Homicide, Destruction of Everything Around Us, No Hope, Heavy Music With No Laws…These the things you are about to come in contact with in the form of the new Jesus Fucking Wept Vol. 1 LP that is coming out soon via Blastbeat Mailmurder.
The Middle East today is the last place anyone in the mainstream western media would think to look for progressive political thought, and even less to see those thoughts translated into action. The idea of part of the region being not just free, but well on its way to utopian, isn’t one that you’re going to find in the mainstream media.
Holy smokes, Satan! Mannveira just got played five times on repeat while I swivel on my chair at Al Necro HQ multi-tasking with great difficulty. The reason being that the music on Mannveira’s Von Er Eitur is absolutely spellbinding. I’m having to follow the rung notes to the speakers that give them life in my home office, and I have to say that I really missed out on this band writing my 2014 End of Year List.
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.
I arrived at the venue to a line-up halfway down the block, a few minutes after 8pm. I’m told doors were to open at 7. Needless to say, this is somewhat unusual, especially on a Monday night in January. Upon my admission approximately 15 minutes later, it was quite easy to see why: I don’t believe I’ve never seen so many people packed into the Rickshaw so early.
