Full Of Hell have released a short video teaser for their upcoming third LP, a collaborational effort with legendary Japanese noise artist Merzbow, simply entitled Full Of Hell & Merzbow.

View the teaser below and be sure to catch the group on their current West Coast tour with labelmates Noisem and the legendary Dropdead, details also below.

Legendary grindcore heavyweights Agoraphobic Nosebleed have announced out of the blue that they will be appearing at next year’s Maryland Deathfest. This is most definitely special and a rare occurrence for the group as ANb don’t play live often (and by that I mean pretty much ever). The band has also announced the addition of bassist John Jarvis, who is also a member of Scott Hull’s Pig Destroyer. RAD. What this all means for the fate of the band’s long teased four solo albums remains to be seen. Will Jarvis’s addition signify the prospect of a fifth album? The band’s last update as of late 2013 signified that the release of the four differing genre albums would be far off due to main riff-writer Scott Hull’s preoccupation with Pig Destroyer but did reveal much pertaining to the plans for the releases.
From ANb vocalist Richard Johnson on December 20, 2013:
This is huge and I am seriously pissed that I’m going to miss this monumental event. Fuck it, I know the band, so maybe I win. After the jump, you can stream my favorite ANb album, Agorapocalypse, and peep the official statement from the band. RAGE. Continue reading

I have really become a fanboy of Pure Noise Records over the last few months. With albums from bands like Vanna and My Iron Lung, I have become a huge fan of all the music the label has been putting out and their latest offerings are no different.

The band has just released a music video for their track “Vacant Home,” one of my favorite tracks off of the album. It’s a pretty rad video and I love the song, so it works! Check out the video after the jump. DO IT. Continue reading
