The chaotic hip-hop trio Death Grips recently released the first installment of their new two-part album, The Powers That B. The first disc is entitled Niggas on the Moon and contains 8 new tracks all of which feature appearances by Bjork. It’s noisy, it’s weird, it’s Death Grips.

The second installment of The Powers That B, Jenny Death, is due out later this year.
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.
The noise-infused hardcore outfit Full of Hell have announced they will be taking their penchant for harsh noise even further by collaborating with Japanese noise artist Merzbow. While the official details are still pending, the collaborative effort will be released on vinyl through A389 (North America) and Stab/Repeat (Europe), while CD/digital formats will be handled by Profound Lore. Be on the look out for more information as it becomes available.

The new track is entitled “Deconstructive Process” and it is one of two tracks from Martyr’s Tongue on the split. The song opens up with a barrage of noise for the first 60 seconds or so before metallic beatdowns occupy the second half of the song.

Additionally, you can stream Benchpress’s opening track on the split below as well.
Experimentalists Horseback have premiered the official video for their track “The Inheritance (Changeling)” over at Self-Titled Mag. The track comes from the band’s 2012 album, Half Blood, and is set to images of decaying and demolished buildings inhabited by geometrically-shaped smoke organisms. It’s a very odd and eerie video. You can check it out after the break.
You can also stream both Half Blood and their most recent album, Piedmont Apocrypha, below as well.

The album was a collaboration of sorts with producer Bobby Krlic, who is known for his work with The Haxan Cloak. The album will be released on March 31st in the UK and April 1st in the U.S. via RVNG Intl. Head over to Pitchfork to have your life destroyed.
Brooklyn’s eclectic noise-mongers, White Suns, have premiered their new music video for their track “Prostrate” over at Brooklyn Vegan. The two minute track is set to a bizarre clip of a homeless person placing FBI-branded eggs into a trash can, only to have one hatch into a hooker. There’s some wind machine action as well. The song itself is bizarre, as it is a collection of minimalist electronics and instrument noise. The track appears on the group’s new album, Totem, which can be streamed after the break along with the video. Check it out.
Brooklyn’s purveyor’s of sonic debauchery White Suns have premiered a new track over at Tiny Mixtapes for your ears to bleed to. The new track is entitled “Priest in the Laboratory” and it is an abstract barrage of face-shredding noise rock that is on the verge of complete insanity. The song will be featured on the group’s forthcoming album, Totem, which will be release through The Flenser on March 18th. Head over to Tiny Mixtapes to stream the track and pre-order your copy here.
As if last year’s Master, We Perish and Christ, Redeemers weren’t enough, the misanthropic duo The Body have announced the release of yet another album. I Shall Die Here finds the band collaborating with experimental artist Bobby Krlic (The Haxan Cloak) for six new tracks that are, according to a press release, “the tried and true sound of The Body is cut to pieces, mutilated by process and re-animated in a spectral state by the newly minted partnership.” A new track from the album, “Hail to Thee, Everlasting Pain”, hit the net earlier today and can be streamed after the break. It features The Body’s infamous dark soundscapes, with guest vocals by Ben Eberle, fed through a more sinister electronic filter. It’s a slightly new direction for the band, but it still retains that certain brand of sonic evil. You can check out the song, album artwork, and track listing after the break.
I Shall Die Here will be released in the U.K. on March 31st and the U.S. on April 1st (let’s hope it’s not some cruel April Fool’s prank). Pre-orders can be obtained here.
Brutal Truth have premiered the official video for their demented seven-minute dirge “The Stroy” from their recent split LP with Bastard Noise, The Axiom of Post Inhumanity, over at Terrorizer. The cyclone of harsh noise is set to warped and kaleidoscopic images of Brutal Truth themselves. You can view the video after the break as well as stream the entire split.
In addition to the video, the band have begun announcing dates for their final European tour. You can view those after the break well.
