WAKE and Primitive Man, two of the most promising young bands in extreme music are making preparations for their upcoming spring tour which will see them getting the party started right in Denver May 15 and bringing things to a close in St.Louis 5/28. With stops along the way in D.C., with The Body and Water Torture, and in Charm City at MDF with the millions of amazing bands that play that event every year.
This tour will cover both ends of the extreme music spectrum with Primitive Man bringing the slow, crushing, low-end pain with their punishing brand of blackened sludge/doom while WAKE will be providing the SPEEEED!! with the unending power and mania that is their hardcore/grind attack.

The track is entitled “Ignorância Colectiva” and it is full of thrashing, galloping crust that fans of Doom and the like will adore. Vocalist Jonhie says the new track “talks about the kind of people that just likes to criticise and say bad things about the others, but in reality don’t do nothing for anyone or to change anything!” Feel free to stream the new jam after the break.

My attention was first alerted to the existence of Boddicker last fall when I was tasked with the responsibility of reviewing their split with Kata Sarka. I was immediately impressed with the unbridled fury Boddicker was able to contain in each of their songs so I was very much interested in reviewing their latest release, an EP entitled False Flag.

A collaborative effort between San Francisco based Creator-Destructor Records and NYC-area-based The Compound, the label arm of media/PR outfit The Earsplit Compound, La Fin Absolue Du Monde, (“the absolute end of the world” in French) , comes hot on the heels of Shift of Redemption and Flies , the two EPs the band released in 2013.
