My life on the internet is becoming quickly cluttered and harder to organize. In addition to my previous addictions to various awesome sites like reddit, reddit, and reddit, I have recently become a writer here at American Aftermath and subject to another online board by the name of the B9 Forums. While all of this is certainly time consuming, my exposure to new and awesome music has increased hundred-fold. One very recent and awesome slab of music has been the One Hour From Anywhere Compilation. Containing some of the best bands in New Jersey’s hardcore, punk, indie and metal scenes, this compilation is a live, no bullshit, no edits in the studio recording and a complete labor of love. Bands include: Ensign, Let Me Run, I AM HERESY, Torchbearer, Fleshtemple, Not the Bees!, Less Life, Decent Living, Bottomfeeder, Something About Death or Dying, The Grains, Les Trois Chaud, Old Wounds, and Disobey.
Stream and download the compilation below(for free or as a pay what you want basis) or pick up the tape from the awesome RTF Records here.
Toxicbreed’s Funhouse has a series of compilations titled Casa De Diversion, all of which are amazing and now they have compiled one of, if not the, greatest covers compilations I have ever heard. Every single band on this compilation is fucking spectacular and each one has their own sound and covers their song with flawless victory.
You all know that I am a huge fan of covers, especially covers compilations so when I caught wind of this, I was stoked immediately. Featuring bands like Masakari, The Love Below, Vestiges (who’s cover I posted about here), Old Wounds and many, many more, how could this be taken as anything but amazing? You can check out a stream of the compilation below and download it here. Get on it. I promise you, you do not want to miss this.
My boys in Old Wounds will be hitting the road this Spring for a nice run which will land them on the stage with bands like Full of Hell, Eddie Brock and Passengers among others. The tour will kick off on March second in Oneonta, New York and will run until March 19th. Check out the dates below. I suggest if you are anywhere in the proximity of any of these shows that you hit ‘em up.
I’ve been a fan and a friend to New Jersey’s Old Wounds for a while now and just because I’m friends with them doesn’t make my opinion of their music biased. I keep my personal feelings out of my album reviews for the most part. That said, I have loved everything that Old Wounds has put out so far, so when vocalist Brandon Gallagher sent me the band’s latest slab of hardcore fury, I was more than excited. Furious metallic hardcore has become my favorite genre and a lot of that is due to Old Wounds never-ending perfection of the genre. [Continue...]
I got into Old Wounds a while back when I was contacted by the band to listen to their EP Terror Eyes. I was instantly hooked to the band’s psychedelic hardcore sound and soon became friends with frontman Brandon Gallgher. This interview has been as long time coming and last night I sat down with Brandon to ask him a few questions I had for him. Check out the interview below in which we talk about how the band got it’s start, the music and Brandon’s art. [Continue...]
