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.

Formerly intended to be a one-off joke project, the 2013 borne baseball-themed grindcore project Puig Destroyer (members of Thrice, Curl Up And Die and Kowloon City) have furthered their foray into the serious with the release of their debut self-titled LP, out today on No Sleep Records and currently streaming over at No Sleep’s official Soundcloud page and below. The appropriately 20 song, 24 minutes long effort is the band’s most refined effort to date, touching over subjects such as Halos’ MVP outfielder Mike Trout, former Angel outfielder Mark Trumbo and distaste for fantasy football shenanigans and was written in the hope that an additional twenty tracks of baseball-themed mayhem still makes “any sense to anyone”. Stream Puig Destroyer by Puig Destroyer below and pick up the record on digital download via No Sleep Records here. Continue reading
