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. The record is poised for a November split release between Profound Lore Records and A389 Recordings, who will be handling CD and vinyl duties respectively. Besides a difference in format, the CD version is expected to contain an exclusive bonus noise disc consisting of manipulated Merzbow material in the vein of Wolf Eyes and Tribes Of Neurot according to a recent interview of guitarist Spencer Hazard by CVLT Nation. 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.

Earlier this week, label Cricket Cemetery revealed teaser tracks and plans for a two-pronged assault between two of my favorite entries in the former Cryptic Passages column, Pittsburgh grinders Purge. and the Full Of Hell-affiliated Ocean City slashers Jarhead Fertilizer. To say the least, the devastating initial results show both groups have stepped up their game hard. From their sludgier origins, Jarhead Fertilizer have undergone a huge stylistic change for the better, embracing more grindiness, speed and rhythmic variety, while the solid Purge. are continually increasing the aggression and impact of their Discordance Axis meets Disembodied grind assault. Listen and decide for yourself with both teaser tracks streamable below via Cricket Cemetery’s bandcamp and an additional two tracks also streamable below as background music via a video tour promo detailing an upcoming mini-tour between the two which will span January 10th through the 12th.

Hello again, fellow Aftermathers! My prolonged absence from the American Aftermath world officially ends NOW with this penultimate annual post, a small but personally necessary pittance to the plentiful albums and artists that sustained me throughout this most bountiful year in extreme music. The following thirty item list reflects full-length albums only with an aural adherence to the hardcore and powerviolence realms as per my listening habits this year. A ton of awesome death metal revivals as well as resurgences from other notables in the general metal realm happened this year (Gorguts, Carcass, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Ulcerate etc.) of which I listened(or rather actively listened) to practically NONE. I simply wasn’t feeling it at this year and intend to return to survey these releases at another time. Thanks to the Aftermath crew especially Ross Gnarly, Lane “The Machine” Oliver, and Josh Huddleston, the bands and musicians, and last but not least, you, the readers! Peep the list after the jump.

Full of Hell’s fourteen day tour in support of their new album, Rudiments of Mutilation, begins tonight at Even Flow in Bay Shore, New York with White Widows Pact. Check out the full two week trek below and get your grind on damn it!
Making lists always makes my head hurt and this year’s massive inventory of beautiful releases isn’t making that any easier. With my “to-check-out” list filled to the brim, I have to say that I took a bit more relaxed stance to music discovery this year and enjoyed select releases over extremely long durations of listen rather than hunt down and chronicle as many good albums as I could. The albums in the list below here are those releases. Give them a thorough listen before the end of the year if you can. Continue reading
In addition to their currently ongoing Summer dates and plans for a Fall European tour, KEN Mode have announced an additional slew of tour dates to round up the close of the year, this time aiming for the Canadian provinces with direct support from Full of Hell. Peep the complete tour details above and stream the latest albums from both groups below.
Those grinders Full Of Hell are some nice boys. Not only have they released some of the most vicious, highly-anticipated and menacing grinding hardcore records of the last few years, but they have also launched themselves forward and have made their latest album Rudiments of Mutilation available for free download via A389’s Bandcamp page.
If you have yet to take in the mass intensity that is Full Of Hell or if you haven’t had the cash to grab a proper copy of Rudiments, now is your chance. Get on this shit, as it is a bad mother of a record. FYI, the album is available for free for this week only!! Continue reading
How do you review noise? As an experimental realm of electronics, one that can and has relied on imagery for substance, and one that I believe is partially substantiated by one’s own individual projections and musicological mindset, it lacks the basic tenets of popular form. It lacks, at least in my limited time in the genre, the verses and choruses, solos, and differentiating riffs and melodies that exist in relativity and consensus with one another, that allow the peripheral assets and background necessary to critique and enjoy music of most other sort. Beyond the confines of the rasp and harsh electronic fuzz and distortion, narrative becomes preeminent, and within the direction of the Full Of Hell ethos, the band are able to achieve this in mounds.

In addition to their previously announced July dates with Loma Prieta, Full Of Hell have announced an additional slew of East Coast tour dates, on which they will be joined by either White Widows, Encrust, Frameworks or Noisem depending on the date of show. Peep the full tour circuit details and a stream of Full Of Hell’s latest full length effort, the vicious Rudiments Of Mutilation, below and be sure to look out for FOH Noise Volume 4, the fourth chapter of the group’s solely noise tapes, out soon sometime this week.
