Review: FULL OF HELL & MERZBOW – “Full Of Hell & Merzbow”

full-of-hell-merzbow-600x580

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.

BLACK TUSK Bassist Jonathan Athon Has Passed Away At Age 32

black_tusk-1080x675One of my favorite bands of all time is Black Tusk and for good reason. The band is definitely a force to be reckoned with and it is with a heavy heart that I inform you that bassist and vocalist Jonathan Athon has passed away due to injuries he attained in a motorcycle accident. He was put into a medically-induced coma and was later taken off of life support. It was his wish that he not be sustained on life-support. It is sad to see such a talented person pass away at such a young age. Jonathan was 32. After the jump you can see a few of Black Tusk‘s videos in which you can see Athon in action as well as read a statement from the band. Farewell, Jonathan.     Continue reading

THE GREAT SABATINI Debut “Life During Wartime” Video

The Great Sabatini have released the official video for their track “Life During Wartime” off of their most recent creation, Dog Years. The album’s melodic yet sludgy closing track is set to a collection of scenes from the 1993 animated film, “The Thief and the Cobbler”. It may seem random but works pretty well with the song itself.
