Black metal infused punk, or punk infused black metal, is nothing new; however, the style has never sounded as fresh as it does coming from Boston’s Human Bodies. No Life, their third output overall, released back in August, surprises me in that it didn’t make it on at least the honorable mentions sections of some year end lists (at least that I’ve seen).
Black is black… BEHEMOTH ripping shit in 1996! Nuff said, now head bang you bastards!!!
London, like Vancouver, is a city of grey skies…sometimes it can feel as if the landscape is frozen in time for months on end – seasons come and go, but the clouds remain. So I feel a special kinship with the melancholy that VOICES bring with their newest full length, London.
On this here review, we take on the venerable noise, black metal, punk vitrolic band known as Smoke and their latest release, the Het Laatste Ordeel LP. From the get-go, we’re swathed in a dense curtain of necro noise. The guitar sounds like discordant bass, and the cymbals are loud. It’s hard to tell the riffs apart, as they sound like they were recorded in a sewage tank.
Drowning The Light have a reputation that defies the normal introduction. In a CVLT Nation exclusive, we talk to Azgorh himself about the direction of the band’s upcoming 13th full length, From The Abyss – featuring the world debut of the track, “Below The Horizon He Stalks,” from this release.
A sonic typhoon of audio destruction that will leave you wanting more! The long overdue record by HEXIS & THIS GIFT IS A CURSE is streaming below and I’m fucking impressed by both bands’ tunes.
