Hella classic technical thrash from New Zealand. Great album cover.
Axiom: Exordium Mors (New Zealand) (0:28-5:03)
Oozing Wound is one of my fave bands right now. Their albums tell a story, that you can listen to over and over again. Full of colorful plots and character development. Great album for a Saturday afternoon and a contender for a top album of the year.
Ganja Gremlin: Oozing Wound (Chicago) (6:29-11:33)
Super fucking thick sound from a Swiss band that is just putting out E.P.’s. Maybe they know when to cut it short? Whatever the formula, it works.
Entranced by the Wolfshook: Bölzer (Switzerland) (2013) (12:02-18:25)
Sleep + Brainoil = Graves At Sea. That isn’t such a bad computation.
This Place is Poison: Graves At Sea (Portland) (19:00-25:31)
Grind, death and prog – enough to wake you up from the murk of sludge.
Old Father: Bastard Feast (Portland) (26:29-28:31)
Again, a full-conceived album is what I yearn to hear, not just a few fist-pumping songs. This one goes all over the place, including some hardcore stuff.
The Desanctification: Wolvhammer (Chicago/Minneapolis) (28:59-35:40)
I edited the SHIT out of some Bongripper for you. Their songs go for 20 minutes+. Really something you should hear, and check out for yourself.
Descent: Bongripper (Chicago) (36:12-41:34)
Some dark Texan chatter.
Strangers: Crumbling Mirth (San Antonio) (42:04-46:30)
Power-viking sludge. Fun young bros.
Infernal Exhalations: War Bong (Nashville) (47:14-50:10)
If you don’t know Sleep, why am I talking to you. This is brand new, after 20 years.
The Clarity: Sleep (Oakland) (50:59-END)
