Do I love graffiti and street art? The answer is HELL Motherfucking YES!!! One thing that I have seen in all of my travels around the world is how graffiti as we know it started in South Bronx, but has now gone worldwide. This is really evident in the favelas of Brazil, especially in a place called Batman Alley.
Shit about to get real fucking ugly!!! On Feb. 17th, our comrades in primal doom PRIMITIVE MAN are unleashing their new 30 minute EP entitled Home Is Where The Hatred Is onto the world via Relapse Records.

When I normally think of the process of mummification, I picture the old Egyptian-style pulling the brain out through the nose technique – which is probably historically inaccurate, but I think I heard it as a kid and it stuck with me – and not about bodies salted and smoked for months, until every drop of moisture had left their body and they were perfectly preserved.
Sewn together from the rotting remains of Incantation, Disciples of Mockery, Morpheus Descends and Gorephobia, Mausoleum have been butchering their way across the underground circuit since 2001.

In fact, playing this in your Mustang while getting gas at a pump somewhere in the fringes will upset the locals so much, you’re probably not coming back home very soon.
Have you been searching far and wide for a good soundtrack to mutilate yourself to? Have you been coming up empty-handed at your local record store? If so, FIEND may be the sign from the Dark Lord you’ve been waiting for.
Check this out the new video from Spain’s TEETHING called “Cratediggers”… it is 1:29 of unfiltered fury! 2015 is going to be a busy year for this band: a 7″ entitled Ralph featuring this song is coming out, they are doing a full European tour, plus a full length that is coming out via TVG
Now this is a doom gem: THORR’S HAMMER performing live in 1995. This video will speak for itself – this band was heavy and next level rolled into one…If you have not heard of THORR’S HAMMER, get with the program.
“The less you know, the safer you’ll be.” A common phrase for an uncommon artist, but it could suit Andy Kehoe just fine, considering that his various stories in the biography part of his websites all tell ridiculous but quite inventive origins.
