Idaho hardcore outfit Bone Dance announced earlier today that they have decided to disband. The official statement reads as follows:
Revolver have premiered the new gnarly performance music video from Idaho’s nihilistic hardcore outfit Bone Dance. The music video, directed by A.J. Duthie, is set to Bone Dance’s track “Writhing in Ecstasy” from their self titled debut of last year. You can check out the video after jump as well as the band’s upcoming touring schedule.
Bone Dance have announced an upcoming Northwest United States tour that they will embark on next week. The filthy hardcore ensemble will be joined by Cascabel and both bands will shatter your ear drums. But that’s nothing a band-aid won’t cure! Check out the list of dates below and their song “Burnout”. If you haven’t jammed their latest album then do so at this location.
This year has been more than gracious to my ears. I was fond of so many releases in 2012 that it was like pulling teeth trying to narrow this list down to JUST thirty. Since albums have the tendency to grow on me, this list was compiled without review ratings in mind, if I had a chance to review them that is. These thirty albums are the records that I continued to revisit throughout the year and have yet to stop jamming. These are the records that are still fresh and exciting upon the umpteenth listen. Without further adieu, these are my favorite albums of the year.
An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
We here at American Aftermath are readying our very own year end lists, to be unleashed this Friday. We have asked some friends and musicians to submit their very own Best of 2012 List, which we will be posting throughout the week and here we go. Read on to find out what members of Pelican, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Black Anvil, Bone Dance and A Fucking Elephant were jamming to this year.
Yo, what’s good, kiddos? You know, this time of year is a big time to catch up on releases to prepare for year-end lists and something that I have come to fucking adore is the music app Spotify. I love this thing. Not only does it stream full albums, but it’s fucking free. So yeah, I’ve been Spotifying like crazy all week and it has really helped me out with working on my list. Here are a few albums that I have been listening to that may or may not end up on my list. If you’re into ’em, check ’em out. Also, don’t forget to tell us your favorite release of 2012. Enjoy.

Check it out now!
Bone Dance have announced an October East Coast tour in support of the band’s upcoming, bone crushing self titled album (October 2nd).

CVLT Nation is currently streaming a new Bone Dance track from their stellar upcoming self titled record. “The Skinny” is like getting mauled by a bear with a chainsaw. Yeah, it’s that heavy. The spiraling rhythmic grooves and crushing chord attacks are extremely violent and extremely satisfying. Go check out the track ASAP. The self titled debut from Bone Dance will be released on October 6th and can be pre-ordered here.
These three albums have been in heavy rotation in my car’s stereo and my headphones. These records have completely taken over my life the past week or so and are extremely infectious listens. I am sure you will hate them but at this point in my life I could care less about you. Check them out you goons.

Imagine yourself in a desolate land where lifeless red soil can be seen for miles. No sign of civilization and no sign of sustenance. Your food supply has depleted and you are so exhausted you collapse in a pathetic heap. At night, predators of all species come out to take their rightful place on the food chain. You were in such a deep state of sleep that you didn’t hear the wolves approaching. They pounce upon you and rip the flesh from you while you struggle to get away. But it is far too late and you are devoured alive. This is what listening to Bone Dance’s self titled LP feels like. It’s a grim beast that will devour you just like the aforementioned wolves. This is the band’s debut on Melotov Records and I have to say it is a total kick in the gut. On this record you are the prey and Bone Dance is the predator.
With the announcement of a new Bone Dance record came an overwhelming sense of excitement for me. This year has brought some killer heavy records from acts like Cattle Decapitation, Gaza, Death of Self and now Bone Dance. Bone Dance are a hardcore band from Idaho whose collection of abrasive, filth-ridden riffs will shatter your worthless skull into oblivion. I recently caught up with bass player Bryce Kresge to discuss the new record, the band’s beginnings and Chick Fil-A.
Idaho purveyors of hardcore filth and grime, Bone Dance, are proud to announce the release of their self titled debut album. The band will release the outing sometime in October (no concrete date just yet) on Melotov Records in the US of A and Throatruiner in Europe. In addition to this exciting news, Bone Dance has released the first cut from the album ironically titled “Comfort”. I can tell you that this song will bring no comfort to the religious peoples of the world or those with a preexisting heart condition. This three minute chaotic hardcore dirge does not let up throughout its entire duration. Bone Dance completely barrages you with hate-filled metallic hardcore that is dripping with the blood of those who stand in this band’s way. This monster of a track can streamed below for those who dare to listen. It will not simply kick your ass, it will demolish it completely. Be on the lookout for their new album in October.
