Protestant are streaming their new album In Thy Name right now courtesy of Noisey and you can check it out after the jump. DO IT. Continue reading
Throatruiner Records has yet to release an album that I have not enjoyed. With amazing records from Plebeian Grandstand, Cortez, Vuyvr, Bone Dance and more, you just can’t go wrong. The label will be releasing the new album from French post-hardcore band As We Draw and you can hear a new track from that effort right now. MetalSucks has premiered the track “Losing Ground” and for the life of me, I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t enjoy it. It’s heavy, it’s amazingly organized and it’s As We Draw. Check out the track below, courtesy of MetalSucks. Continue reading
Milwaukee’s vicious hardcore band Protestant have thoroughly impressed me time and time again and I think their new record In They Name might be their best yet. The band has released the brutally bombarding track “Vengeance” and if you feel the need to become a tornado of fists after listening to it, you are definitely not the only on. You can check that track out after the jump. Bang your fucking head. Continue reading
Vermin Womb, which is 2/3rds of Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire, are a band that we have posted about before and I am thrilled to be posting about them again. The band has released their debut album Permanence, which you can now stream and download for free. How is this possible, you ask? Well, the album is being distributed by Throatruiner Records (who brought us Cortez, Plebian Grandstand and Vuyvr), which happens to be a label that offers up free downloads of all of their albums. Stoked? You should be. Stream the entire album by the soon-to-be legendary Vermin Womb. Continue reading
Swiss black metal band Vuyvr are one that I have heard about and seen around but I never actually sat down to listen to them and I am so fucking disappointed in myself for not checking them out sooner. This band is phenomenal and their new album Incinerated Gods fucking destroys. Insane black metals done the way I’ve always wanted it done. Check out a full stream of Vuyvr‘s new album before it is released next month. DUDE. Continue reading
I’ve been ranting about Plebeian Grandstand for a good while now and about how much I adore their music and now I urge you all to stream the bands latest effort, the ever-entrancing Lowgazers. Plebeian Grandstand is one of those bands who constantly gain momentum and never, ever let you down. The band has done their greatest work on Lowgazers and you need to check this out. Stream the album in full after the jump. Continue reading
After four years, blackened hardcore outfit Plebeian Grandstand will finally unleash their long awaited, highly anticipated (at least by me) sophomore record Lowgazers next month. In anticipation, the band has recently released the music video for the albums first single “Thrvst.” You can check out this insane video after the jump. It’s not really NSFW, but if you have epileptic tendencies, I highly suggest you skip over this one. Flashylights and all. Continue: Continue reading
French crusty hardcore outfit Direwolves released a phenomenal EP titled Me From Myself, To Banish and anyone who listened to that beast has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the bands debut full-length. Well, it has been announced that the band will release their debut album ÆGRI SOMNIA will be released next month. The band has issued a teaser for the record, which you can check out after the jump. Prepare yourself. Continue reading
The Basque of Southern France and Northern Spain aren’t exactly known for extreme music. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to name even one other Basque punk/hardcore/metal band. But what the Basque lack in quantity they make up for in quality. Enter: The Rodeo Idiot Engine.
Art thou familiar with the snails-pace-doom of Eibon? This bands music is one of the only a handful that actually have the ability to depress and encapsulate at the same time. Crushing brutality is almost overwhelming, but it draws you in close. The band will soon be releasing a new album through Throatruiner Records and Aesthetic Death and, with only two songs, this album will fucking destroy you. Continue reading
Why should you be listening to No Omega? Because they are amazing. Fast, aggressive and fucking gnarly. They play blistering, in-your-face hardcore tinged with melody and elements of post-rock and it’s a beautiful thing. I’ve heard word of this band around the webz, but now that I am listening to them, I don’t understand why there isn’t a bigger hype about them. Continue reading
Swiss band Cortez might have the break-out album of the year for me. Although it is the groups second album, I consider it a “break-out” because this is the first album I have heard from them. With that said, Cortez are mind-blowing, chaotic might and majesty in music form. Continue reading
Are you in the mood for chaotic, atmospheric, blackened filth that’s pounded together with raw emotion and musical creativity spanning many genres? Well, if that’s the case, you should definitely check out this new track by France’s The Phantom Carriage. This band combines crusty hardcore and loads and loads of black metal (a la Young And In The Way) but with some first wave emo attributes.
I really dug their debut album New Thing (listen here) and I am stoked for their 2013 release Falls. The band is currently streaming a new track called “Dreamers Will Never Stop Dreaming,” which you can check out below. It’s pure chaos and it’s great. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments. Enjoy. Continue reading
Remember not too long ago when I was talking about that killer hardcore band Elizabeth? Yeah, you do. Well these guys have finally officially released their new album Where Vultures Land and guess what? It’s free to download! Yeah, that’s right! I don’t know about all of you people but I fucking love free music. I especially love free music that comes in a genre that I love so much. For reals, dudes. Hardcore is my favorite genre and Elizabeth is one of my current favorite hardcore bands.
Such pissed music with metallic tinges and aggressive natures. What’s not to like? So go and grab this shit immediately. Stream the album below and download it here. Get into it. It will destroy you.
A little while back I did my first Demo Reel column and the first band I reviewed was the Swiss hardcore outfit Elizabeth. This band put out a completely crushing demo and I can hardly wait to check out their upcoming full-length which will be released on April 4th via Throatruiner Records and I For Us Records. Until the album is released, Elizabeth has posted two new tracks on their Bandcamp to hold us over.
These two tracks, “Darkness” and “Rising Kingdom” are two destructive face-melters. Absolutely amazing metallic hardcore and if this is any indication of how the rest of the album will play out, this album is definitely not to be overlooked. Check out the two new tracks below. Enjoy.
Added bonus: titties on the album cover (see above).
