Invasion Of The Podcast Episode 2: Dank Shit – A Conversation With TRANSIENT

I have finally gotten around to doing another edition of Invasion of the Podcast after months of deliberating whether or not I wanted to continue it and just being broke. I attended a local grindcore oriented show this past week and hung out with the Portland grindcore aficionados, Transient, whose debut self-titled album is available now. We discussed the new record, vocalist Krysta Martinez’s involvement in Landmine Marathon, Scion, electric triangles, burning Christmas trees, and the list goes on and on. I sincerely hope you enjoy it. You can stream it below if you have a free half-hour on your hands.

Review: GORGUTS – “Colored Sands”

File:Colored Sands.jpg

It’s been twelve long years since we’ve gotten our greasy palms on new Gorguts material and one can imagine the enormous hype surrounding their “comeback” album. The Canadian technical death metal legends left us in 2005, four years after releasing their then final album From Wisdom to Hate. Luckily the band reformed in 2008 with sole original member, guitarist/vocalist Luc Lemay at the helm. He recruited the likes of bassist Colin Marston (Dysrthymia, Behold the Arctopus), guitarist Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrthymia), and drummer John Longstreth. Gorguts remained rather silent until recently when it was announced that Colored Sands would be the band’s fifth full length album. After being gone for such an extended period time and after releasing classic albums like Obscura, Gorguts have a lot to hone up to. This were Colored Sands comes in. These nine new tracks aren’t merely a return to form. No, this is a new incarnation of Gorguts all together.
