Funeral For A Friend are a band that some people can take and some can’t stand. I, for one, really dig this band and was quite pleased with last years Conduit. It’s insane that Funeral are back in the studio after releasing an album less than a year ago. Fucking rad, but insane. After the jump you can check out a statement made by the band’s vocalist Matthew Davies and peep one of my favorite tracks from Conduit. Continue reading
I can’t immediately name a band from Argentina although I am sure I know a few. It’s just not where my expertise lies in music. However, I have recently found a band from Argentina that has completely blown me away. The band is called Lost Hope and they are a post-hardcore-ish screamo-ish rad-as-fuck band that I have deeply fallen in love with.
The band boasts heavy-threaded tunes with melody and perfect execution not unlike Alexisonfire and their debut(?) release El Día Más Largo Del Año came out back in December and I haven’t stopped listening to it after finding it on Bandcamp. Check out the album after the jump and hopefully you dig it as much as I do. Continue reading
No-Cal post-hardcore act State Faults, who I fell in love with not too long ago, have just unleashed a new music video for their song “Wildfires.” This is one of my favorite tracks off of the album and it’s great to see a music video that entertains and isn’t just a whack performance video. Check it out after the jump and be sure to pick up Resonate/Desperate, out now on No Sleep Records. Continue reading

Capsule’s 2011 album No Ghost was one of the more original records to be released during that year. The Florida post-hardcore outfit stood out from the pack with their masterful combining of complex melodies and volatile rhythms, topped off with a hardcore attitude. Capsule has returned this year with five new tracks contained within a blistering new EP. The new release, entitled [A], sees Capsule exploring new territory while maintaining their originality.

Welcome to the ninth edition of Cryptic Passages, a weekly column in which I, Eric Nguyen, will be presenting for your torture, some of the most brutal, unrelenting, and hate drenched pieces of audio I’ve found journeying through the misanthropic plains of the internet. Last week, I didn’t have the time to write up a post. And while I promised six passages, only three satanic passages will await you in this week’s cryptic chasm…after the jump for reasons you can read in the title. Continue reading
And The Year Of The Split marches on. I’m here today to review two new splits. When I say “new splits,” I mean that literally. These splits were released this past Tuesday and both splits were highly anticipated by me and countless others, I’m sure.
The first split I am going to review is between Phillip H. Anselmo and Warbeast. I was really looking forward to this album because I am a huge fan of Phil and his work on all of his projects. If you are unaware of this man’s talents, come on, how can you be? But, for those of you who somehow don’t know who he is, he is the frontman of Down and guitarist for Arson Anthem. He is also the former frontman of both Pantera and Superjoint Ritual. Now that I’ve pointed out something you should all know by now, let’s hop into this review. Continue reading
