Hair of the Dog - This World Turns (2017)


•  †  •

This fucker has more grooves than your grandmothers wrinkled neck. It's got a lot of meaty hooks lined with gristle for you to chew on for hours. Strengthen those weak jaws. No frills, all killer no spiller, Psych rock with glances at blues and doom gone retrograde. Dig in fiend.

Lorn - Arrayed Claws (2017)


•  †  •

Man, how bout this album? Arrayed Claws is all things primordial savagery and total fucking nihilism. Absolute sonic disharmony. I wrote a review for this album for the venerable Sludgelord, so you can check that piece of fancy bedroom-blogger buzzword jerkathon when Aaron puts it up… I say things like "fuck", "feral" and "dissonant" and probably a combination of the three… You know how these things work.

 All that really needs to be said is this; One of the best black metal albums I've heard this year so far.

I Voidhanger, Records has done some good things recently for abstract metal, and they have my full attention. Check out all most of the newest releases.

Vulture - Oblivious to Ruin (2012)


•  †  •

The city of Pittsburgh is probably still busy not giving a fuck about their second consecutive Stanley Cup because hockey hasn't been recognized by the rest of the world as the only sport worth paying attention to, yet. Steel town has also done something else worthy of our attention more than most other things you pay attention to; Vulture's 'Oblivious to Ruin'

What a fucking rip this entire album is. Not a single second is time wasted, an entire forty minutes devoted to hitting' you hard with some truly gritty Pittsburghian doom/sludge metal. Listen deep.

It's a steal at $5, I've spent more on a breakfast sandwich I ate in three minutes and puked up 15 minutes later.

The Stranger - The Stranger 7" (2017)



•  †  •

You ain't no punk you punk. You wanna talk about the real junk? I have been playing the Stranger EP loud and often, and you should too. Fast and jangly and full of piss. It reminds me of Strange Attractor met with the faster parts of Yuppies. If you can't dig this you can't dig nothing.

Hordes - II (2013)


Ive posted this here before, but I'm doing so again because I have about 10 minutes to kill and the album is still up for 'name you price' on Bandcamp with a heinous sub twenty supported by section. A suitable replacement ichor if you didn't have enough "fuck you" in your morning coffee. The track "Tooth and Claw" is worth the 1$ you likely would have wasted on something else anyway.

Stay positively pissed.

Heresiarch - Death Ordinance (2017)



Fuck me on the fucking dick, Heresiarch are finally following up their mega tight EP Hammers of Intransigence with a debut album, one that's taken 6 years to forge and finally put out (July 07 via Dark Descent Records). They only have one track up on the band camp because Dark Descent is a known cock tease, but I'm going to go ahead and give it a certified banger accreditation right now.

New Zealand must be putting ether and contempt in their well water because NZ has good representation when it comes to death metal that is downright feral and dripping in muck and mire, and I don't know about you guys but 2017 has been a treat for the ears, and unlike every other shit-heel keyboard plodder I don't say that every year.

Cream on!

Piss Test - LP 2 (2017)


Piss Test are a no frills, fast and straight forward garage punk trio. That's it and that's all and this is LP 2. "I still hate Fleetwood Mac, I still dress all in black, I sew patches on my pants, I still get crazy when I dance… and I live in a basement!"
