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.
Nefarious Industries are proud to present the newest addition to their already eccentric roster, Pigeon.

Go ahead and check out the rockin’ Big Survival below. You’ll be glad you did.

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 »
You may remember me mentioning that Touche Amore and Pianos Become the Teeth would be releasing a split 7″ this month. Well the Baltimore screamo/post-hardcore hybrid, Pianos Become the Teeth, are streaming their side of the split over at Glue HC. Like most of their material, “Hiding” should be noted for the band’s presentation of raw emotion and special attention to melody and texture. The split will released digitally tomorrow and physically on the 22nd. Don’t sleep on this one. Check out Pianos Become the Teeth’s wonderful side now!

Similar to the conflicted state of mind the character Jules Winnfield Of Pulp Fiction was in when he decided not to execute the characters of Honey Bunny and Ringo like “fucking fried chicken”, my American Aftermath writership came at a period in my life of transition, a time of both fleeting and returning tastes. In short, my idea of “music” was flipped upside down. What was once a streamlined process of music listening and discovery was overloaded and overridden by my previous months exploration into a multitude of realms and genres previously unexplored, most notable among that being my new found discovery of hardcore and the cascading effects of that discovery, which led to realms from sludge metal to pop punk.
The following thirty album list reflects the few difficultly chosen releases that stuck with me the most throughout both the bombarding ocean of releases this year and the aforementioned musical overturn. Before we actually begin, I’d like to thank the American Aftermath crew especially Ross Gnarly, Lane Oliver, and Josh Huddleston for allowing me to be a part of their team. I would also like to thank the musicians and bands that have created music for me to write about and those that have helped out in interviews and features. Last but not least I want to thank you, the readers, for giving a shit. See you all after the jump.
