I’ve only been into Xibalba for a short time, but I really dig this band a lot and I was highly anticipating the bands new record Tierra Y Libertad. Well, I’m not wrong, the band is killing it on this new album. Trust me. All you have to do is check out the bands new video for their track “Enemigo” which is one of my favorite tracks of the last few months. Get crushed after the jump. Continue reading
Baptists released a spectacularly heavy new album titled Bloodmines earlier this year and the band has now unloaded a music video for the albums title track. I absolutely love this band and I really love this album, so take the time to check out the creativity of Baptists. Check out the “Bloodmines” video below. Word. Continue reading
Fuck a fuck, dude. How the hell did I not know Sunn O))) had released a new album? Southern Lord isn’t 100% active on the promotional front for Sunn O))), I’m assuming, but I’m still disappointed in myself that I didn’t catch this somewhere. Thanks to our blogthers over on Heavy Blog Is Heavy, I got news last night.
The tracks are long, dissonant and
soaked drenched in feedback. Duh. It’s Sunn O))). Stream the album, titled LA Reh 012 after the jump. You’ll need to wipe out a pretty good section of your morning to enjoy it, but you already know that if you’re reading this post. Enjoy, drones. Continue reading
This upcoming September, Harm’s Way will be heading out west in support of their most recent EP, Blinded, along with grindcore peers, Dead In The Dirt, and dark hardcore allies, Homewrecker. The band has announced that the tour is the first out of a run of U.S. dates in support of the new record. Peep the full tour details above and a music video for “Mind Control”, a track off of Blinded, out now on Deathwish Inc., below.
BL’AST! are a legend in the hardcore community and they remain as a mainstay of hardcore music even today. BL’AST! called it quits after the release of their 1989 album Take The Manic Ride and nothing new was heard from the band after that. Until now, that is.
Earlier this year, BL’AST! guitarist Mike Neider contacted Southern Lord Records/SUNN O))) member Greg Anderson and notified him that Mike had discovered some never-before-heard BL’AST! master tapes in a locker. Greg handed the material off to master producer and BL’AST! maniac fan Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) to do his magic. Continue reading
In their brief existence as a band, Massachusetts’ All Pigs Must Die has become one of my favorite bands. For good reason: they fucking destroy. Every release by the hardcore visionaries has grown to the top of my list every year and I am always stoked to hear new material from the band. So, when the band released their first single from their upcoming album Nothing Violates This Nature. Continue reading
Stop your mouth-breathing right now! Put away your Fleshlights and drop the coffee cups! Now is the time of your reckoning. Lane recently reviewed Nails‘ latest album Abandon All Life and you can now listen to this bastard in full! This is definitely not something you’d want to pass up. Continue reading
I fell in love with Baptists when they released their first EP and I sat quietly, awaiting their next release. It has been almost two years and finally my time has come. The time has come for Baptists to release their debut full-length. Before even going into this album I knew it would be filled with blistering crust, feedback and filth stacked on top of filth. How did I know this? Because I couldn’t see a Baptists album unfolding any other way. Could you? Continue reading
While sifting through the comments just now, I came across one from user Gertra that was simply a video. What was this video? It was what seemed to be a music video for The Secret‘s track “Daily Lies” which comes off their blistering 2012 release Agnus Dei. I watched the video and I was completely blown away. Continue reading
Italy’s most destructive force The Secret are currently streaming their fierce new album Agnus Dei over on CVLT Nation and I gotta say, this is an album that NEEDS to be heard. I’ve been listening to this album for a few weeks now and I will tell you that it is one of the best releases of the year. It’s a filthy work of art and you should all stop what you’re doing and listen to this beast. The album was released last week via Southern Lord Records. Check out a track below and stream the whole thing here. Enjoy. Continue reading
Todd Jones‘s (ex-Terror) hardcore juggernauts, Nails, have finished writing for their forthcoming Southern Lord debut “Abandon All Life” and are currently set to enter Kurt Ballou‘s Godcity Studio in December to start the recording process. In the meantime, Southern Lord will be (re)releasing their previous album “Obscene Humanity” but as a three song 7″ in.
The 7″ in will feature the songs “Obscene Humanity“, “Confront Them” and “Lies“. These three songs were re-recorded by the band during their “Unsilent Death” sessions, but were not featured on that album for some reason. As of now, the “Obscene Humanity” seven-inch release date is still TBA, but it should hit the streets some time in October.

Sunn O))) is a legendary act, the forerunners of drone and gods among men. I have been a fan of the band for a long time and when they released a rehearsal demo on their recent June/July tour (it was limited to 1500 copies on black vinyl) and I couldn’t get my hands on one, I knew I had to hear these tracks one way or the other. Well, one of the tracks, “Power Nurse,” has made it’s way online and it’s fantastic. Almost sixteen minutes of droning, dooming madness. Check out the track below and get your brain blown out. Yeeeeeah.
Pennsylvania’s Heartless, who are one of my favorite vicious hardcore acts right now, are prepping their October/November trek across Europe. This is a pretty extensive tour seeing as the band had their van broken into back in May. It’s good to see that they have pushed on and kept crushing skulls. If you’re in proximity of any of these shows, I highly suggest checking it out. I am sure it won’t be something that you’ll want to miss. Be sure to grab Heartless‘ latest slab of brutality Hell Is Other People which is available now via Southern Lord Records.
Check out the dates after the jump. Continue reading
