New York grind outfit Yesod is equal parts smart and scathing in their approach to heaviness. Their debut effort Divine Coma was released earlier this year and tears through seven tracks of vicious, gritty grindcore followed by a half hour of noise and abstraction over the course of its five additional offerings. We spoke with bassist/vocalist Tony about the band’s inception, mysticism, magic, and the themes of Divine Coma. Listen to the record here:

WAKE and Primitive Man, two of the most promising young bands in extreme music are making preparations for their upcoming spring tour which will see them getting the party started right in Denver May 15 and bringing things to a close in St.Louis 5/28. With stops along the way in D.C., with The Body and Water Torture, and in Charm City at MDF with the millions of amazing bands that play that event every year.
This tour will cover both ends of the extreme music spectrum with Primitive Man bringing the slow, crushing, low-end pain with their punishing brand of blackened sludge/doom while WAKE will be providing the SPEEEED!! with the unending power and mania that is their hardcore/grind attack.

Please, go on.
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.
