Lifeless are a band out of New Jersey specializing in bleak, heavy as shit, memorable metallic hardcore. I first heard of the band through a b9 hate thread criticizing their excessively violent shows and fans. Being a fan of ignorant shit live and on record, I knew instantly that they were going to be at best, one of my favorite bands and at worst, at least an enjoyable listen. They quickly settled into the former category and I finally had the chance to see them live at last year’s This Is Hardcore Festival wherein news was ruminating of a new LP. That LP, DREAM, is now in sight, set for the release date of March 24th on Fast Break! Records. I had the chance to speak with frontman Jeremy Tingle about the new record, DIY tour horror stories, chilling with Fury Of Five, the time rumors spread that Jeremy had been beaten to death with his own torn off leg, our mutual interests in DOOM and The X-Files and lots more. Check it all out along with an exclusive premiere of the band’s new single “Surrender” below, follow Lifeless on Facebook here and pre-order DREAM via Fast Break! Records here.
Whenever Aaron Turner attaches his name to a musical project, people take notice. Whether it be the forward-thinking metal compositions of Isis, the sludgy monkey-business of Old Man Gloom, the haunting drones of Mamiffer, the hardcore-tinged debauchery of Split Cranium and others, it’s hard to deny Turner’s musical prowess. So when Sumac was announced, everyone, including myself, was instilled with insurmountable excitement. Turner is joined by the equally proficient Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, etc) and Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists), and the end-result is absolutely tremendous. Brimming with complexity and colossal heaviness, The Deal delivers the all the goods in a jam-packed 54-minute duration.
