Review: FULL OF HELL & MERZBOW – “Full Of Hell & Merzbow”

full-of-hell-merzbow-600x580

Formed in 2009 initially under a far more familiar Crowbar-ian banner, Ocean City, MD audio terrorists Full Of Hell have since grown into one of the most innovative acts in contemporary extreme music, bearing name to a consistent assault of constant reinvention bred from a seemingly unending wealth of existential woe and genre-weaving knowhow. On the live circuit, the quartet have fared similarly, holding their vile live exorcisms to the acclaim of endless punk houses and festival audiences the world over, slaying equally audiences Backtrack to The Body. While 2013’s Rudiments Of Mutilation seemed to serve as the band’s magnum opus and a comfortable defining point for the band’s shifting sound, this year’s Full Of Hell & Merzbow, a chance collaboration with the long-standing noise legend, marks the beginnings of yet another new trajectory into alienation for the initially hardcore-rooted band that proves that there is much hell left to explore.

Delivering on the band’s promise to continue to push their aural boundaries to further realms of harshness and inaccessibility, the new track deters away from the band’s groovier dark hardcore beginnings in place of a newer adherence to the rasp of death metal and grindcore, a direction the full album is due to pursue. Stream “Gordian Knot” via Noisey here along with an interview with vocalist Dylan Walker on the band’s new alliance with label Profound Lore, commentary on the development of the new album as well as information on the second bonus album included exclusively with the CD version of the band’s upcoming LP. In addition, Full Of Hell are set to embark on an Australian tour with Idylls and Machina Genova late November. Peep dates for that tour below.

Full Of Hell & Merzbow arrives November 25th on CD via Profound Lore Records and vinyl via A389 Recordings. Full Of Hell’s most recent release was an exclusive 2014 Record Store Day split with Dwid Hellion (Integrity) noise project Psywarfare.

Review: BLEED THE PIGS – “Overcompensations for Misery”

After being exposed to Nashville, TN’s Bleed the Pigs’s debut EP Mortis Fatum I was intrigued by the promise this young band showed. While showing great potential they nonetheless fell short of expanding their
sound beyond the already aging Entombedcore sound pioneered by Nails and further popularized by a host of bands. However on their followup EP, Overcompensations for Misery they have smashed right thru the
glass ceiling and have, in my mind, established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the national punk/hardcore/powerviolence scene.
