Alda: Recap, Rehash, Return, Refuck // Limited vinyls for grab!

Firstly, fuck mormons. Secondly, welcome back. Thirdly, I'm back in Iceland writing out from a cozy cafe full of people I hate for no reason. Fourthly, it feels good to be back on here and posting again, even if it's just a little recap post pertaining to to a band already mentioned and brought to attention on SHOM. Albeit, a band that kicks so much fucking ass they probably get private lessons from Dolph Lundgren. Yes, I'm talking about atmospheric black metal giants Alda.

I interviewed them a while back, but you already saw and read through all of that right? Of course. If for whatever reason it eluded the likes of you, unfuckify yourself by clicking here.

Now, to the main point of this post, which isn't about telling you how good these guys are (they're good.), it's about informing you fine fellows of a limited Alda vinyl purchase thingy we have going on at SHOM. The strident and monolithic release Tahoma was sold out on vinyl about as quickly as it went up, restoring my dwindling faith in humanity just enough to seek out and make this limited vinyl reappear from the dead. This is where you come in, let me know in the comments if you would like to purchase this back from the dead vinyl beast and we will work it out mono es mono! The rad dudes in Alda will even autograph/scribble on it for you, maybe even include an inspirational quote or dick drawing for good measure. This post is to see if there is any interest in something like this, if there is, then good one you, and we will get the ball rolling on this ASAP.

Send me those messages via comments or email me at; We'll work out the lowest price we can with your shipping address. Thank you dudes, make me proud!

Greetings from Amsterdam!

I'm mega behind in the virtual world, it hurts a little bit. My physical self is enjoying itself in a variety of unfamiliar lands, right now I'm in Amsterdam, tomorrow it will be Berlin. I'm behind in music, but most importantly I'm behind in this blog right now, stick with me, I'll be back soon. One love.

PS: Amsterdam is a degenerate cess-pool of scumbags, it's rad! (it has it's charm)

Bone Dance - Self Titled (2012)

I sit tucked away in a corner at my hostel in Iceland, the sun is chirping, the birds are shining, and the coffee is filling me with caffeinated joy, it's all pleasure centers. Good vibes… but that's all just about to fucking change. I just got my grubby paws on the new Bone Dance ST, and after a few songs I find myself hating on every existence in the room (especially the dude wearing mittens while scrawling in his meaningless travel journal - "dear diary, I'm a dick hole").

Bone Dance have solidified themselves in the underground hardcore scene with their DIY approach and work ethic rivaling your foreign grandparents. Releasing EP's, splits, some 7-inchers and even a full-length release back in 2009 that is now deemed by the band as an artifact as they no longer play the material.

Let's get down to it. Shrill nihilistic metallic hardcore that pulls elements from crust, sludge, doom and punk. The riffs have multiple personalities, weaving in and out of crushing chugs to technical passages that teeter on melodic. Commanding vocals roar like a lioness in heat, the bass remains audible and chunky while the drums march along in taut fashion. Pissed. Think of bands like BotchMind Eraser, Plebeian Grandstand and The Engineer.
