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.

Review: CHEST PAIN – “Weltschmerz”

chest pain - weltschmerzSo, a few years back I was buying up a ton of 7″ records because, well, I dig the power and intensity that bands can pack into that little slab of wax. One record that I bought without really knowing who the band was happened to be the self-titled 7″ by a band called Chest Pain. This band blew my mind with their aggressive powerviolence and I still find myself going back to that album for a good pick-me-up. I also recently learned that the band will be releasing their new LP Weltschmerz soon and, although it took all of my power not to scream out in excitement, I was beyond stoked. And guess what. Yeah, this destroys.    Continue reading
