This is a new monthly column here at American Aftermath in which the staff tells you what we have been listening to and what albums we will keep in constant rotation. For me, my entire life revolves around music so I am constantly listening to it. Any kind and all kinds, so lets kick this thing off the right way.
WUGAZI‘s 13 Chambers
If you were one of those people who didn’t catch up on Wugazi, which was Doomtree Records product created by combining punk icons Fugazi with hip-hop legends Wu-Tang Clan. The final product is an unstoppable, funky force to be reckoned with. Although Fugazi‘s bassist Joe Lally has stated that he thinks the album could have been much better had the participants used better Fugazi tracks in the process. I, on the other hand, think that 13 Chambers is perfectly executed. If you ain’t know about it, check out a track below and download the album for free here.
THE BLED‘s Pass The Flask
Arising at the pinnacle of the metalcore insurgence of the early 2000s, The Bled burst onto the scene with a vengeance. When the band started off, they were a pretty straight forward hardcore band but I don’t think anyone would argue that the band’s first full-length Pass The Flask is anything but a killer metalcore record. Later on in their career, the band started to go downhill and nothing else they did measured up to their massive debut album. I have listened to this album for years and it still gets regular play around here. If you haven’t checked this out, come on, kid. Do it.
FALSE LIGHT‘s False Light
Holy fuck, kiddos. I have been jizzing all over this album for months now and this shit never, ever gets old. Pulverizing, brutal powerviolence soaked in disgusting blackened filth. VII over at Operation Grindcore introduced this band to me earlier this year and I don’t think I could ever thank him enough. This album has been a constant jam for me and for all of the right reasons. The amount of feedback shoved into this tight little package is ridiculous. If you have been holding out for a killer grind record, let this one be the album for you. Trust me, you won’t regret this one. Stream and download for free below.
