American Aftermath Exclusive: TRAP THEM Vs. ALL PIGS MUST DIE

Back during SXSW 2011, Thrasher Magazine and Converse shoes put on their yearly Death Match showcase; this year the headlining act was Trap Them. Due to an incident the prior day where All Pigs Must Die set was cut, Trap Them was nice enough to give up half of their set to APMD, but instead of cutting the set short, Trap Them just let APMD set up their gear on stage with TT’s and perform in between Trap Them songs! It was a pretty sweet event and lucky for you guys, I was there to capture it on an SD card.

Posted above is Trap Them’s intro featuring Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) as the second drummer. Posted after the jump is the rest of the show Continue reading

WTF Moment: SNL Cast Member Mentions DEATH GRIPS On Rachael Ray

 

Just a few days ago, television’s cooking icon Rachael Ray featured Saturday Night Live and Portlandia cast member Fred Armisen as the guest on her show. At some point in the interview, Ray gives her guests one minute of free time to purvey any message that they choose. In this particular instant, Armisen chose to go on a thirty-second tangent about “a musician who he thinks is the greatest ever”. That musician was none other than Death Grips drummer Zach Hill! According to Armisen, Hill has “reinvented how you drum”.

Man, that is some killer press, too bad it’s going to be wasted on people who’d rather listen to Justin Beiber. Can you just imagine America’s bored house wives casually youtubing Death Grips? Yeah, pretty fucking awesome, right? To view the clip of Armisen on Rachael Ray click here.

I Don’t Think You Are Ready For This New DEVOURMENT Track

The masters of Slam, Devourment, have hooked up with fine gentlemen over at Metalsucks to premiere a super fucking heavy new song. The new track entitled “Justifiable Homicide” is featured on the band’s upcoming Relapse release, “Conceived In Sewage“.

Unlike almost every other Devourment song out there, this one actually features riffs other than slam riffs! It’s actually pretty fucking awesome if you ask me. Now don’t get discouraged and think what I just said means that “justifiable Homicide” is light on the slam, cause we all know that ain’t ever fucking happening. For those of you who feel like getting their skull crushed with heaviness, click this link! For those who don’t want their skull to be crush with heaviness, maybe you are reading the wrong sites….

DANNY BROWN Is The Black Brad Pitt

 

Featured above is the strange music video for Evil Nine‘s collaboration with rapper Danny Brown. The track is titled “The Black Brad Pitt” and the video features everything you’d want in a music video; Diamonds, a African solider dancing and a random chick! Yeah, it’s that strange, but at least the track isn’t bad at all.

Oddly enough, this is the first Danny Brown song I ever heard (which was when I randomly watched his set at Fun Fun Fun Fest) and I haven’t heard it since, but yet still remember all the words.. Anyway, soak in all the Danny Brown you can before he drops OLD drops later this year. it’s going to be a banger.

Honor Never Dies: Stream HATEBREED’s New Album Now

I told you back in November that Hatebreed had put out a new track that I didn’t hate. I’ve listened to that track quite a few times and it have come to like it a lot. I have been wondering how the rest of Hatebreed‘s new album The Divinity Of Purpose was going to sound, hoping to myself that “Put It To The Torch” wasn’t going to be the only good track. Well, it’s not the only good track, take my word for it.     Continue reading
