Exclusive Interview: WARSAWWASRAW

Warsawwasraw‘s debut full length, Sensitizer, came seemingly out of nowhere this year. I was not aware of the French duo’s existence until Three One G label head Justin Pearson (of The Locust/Retox) shared their track “Hollowcost” on various social media outlets. As if the whole “chaotic hardcore” genre couldn’t get more…chaotic. The instrumentation is fast and intense beyond measure. The drumming is furious and bludgeoning. The guitars churn out riffs that are extremely complex, noisy and vicious. Sensitizer is a whirlwind of auditory insanity that aims to distance itself from being just another album that simply echoes the work of Botch or Converge. In short, the album is a good kick in the ass. I recently got in touch with the two masterminds behind Warsawwasraw to discuss the album and more.

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.
