The album officially comes out on February 9th, but luckily you do not have to wait any longer to get your skull caved in.

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.

Dallas-based technical metal outfit Baring Teeth have premiered their forthcoming sophomore full length, Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins, over at Revolver. The record will officially be released next Tuesday, November 25th, via Willowtip Records and pre-orders can still be placed here. On the new disorienting record, vocalist/guitarist Andrew Hawkins comments:
“This album was a really difficult one to make. We pushed ourselves as songwriters and as musicians, but I think the extra focus we placed on crafting a complete, focused album really paid off. Every song plays into the larger whole while still being brutal and catchy, and we wrote much more concertedly this time around. Our goal was to make an album that pushes the extremes of [debut full-length] Atrophy as far as possible, and we’re really happy with the result.”
If you cannot wait five more days to have your equilibrium wrecked, then stream the new record at this location.
Release Date: November 4th
Label: Brutal Panda Records
FFO: Pigs, War Brides
I was first introduced to Ladder Devils way back when they released their three-way split with Fight Amp and Kowloon Walled City. Back then, the band stood out to me, but I was fully invested in the pure awesomeness that is Kowloon. Today though, I cannot stop listening to Ladder Devils and for good reason. Even since the release of the aforementioned split, this band has truly grown and expanded upon their noisy, sludgy sound. The band recently released their new album Clean Hands and I’m here to talk about it. Lets get to it. Continue reading →
