Reached a new record on my show: 15 songs, mostly due to the influx of grind and hardcore. Noisem was unholy grind, with creepy atmospheric pauses.
Cascade of Scars: Noisem (MD)(0:28-4:41)
Clean chaos – French band Death Engine knows how to be noisy, sharp hardcore.
Cure: Death Engine (France)(5:55-9:07)
Weekend Nachos does Weezer covers on their new 7”!!
Tired of Sex: Weekend Nachos (Chicago)(9:42-12:40)
This is my new fave record, Norwegian Avant-garde garage rock
Peephole Maze: Haust (Norway)(13:23-19:26)
Oh Fister, you can never do wrong. The lead singer excels in my type of vocals: menacing. They are king of dark lead-ups and breakdowns.
portion of "IV": Fister (St. Louis)(20:10-25:00)
D.C. hardcore? Very different from the traditional type.
Oubliette: Ilsa (D.C.)(25:58-28:48)
Coliseum shares the bassist of Yautja, which makes him a very busy man with all the touring and albums. They are a fun hardcore band, when they lean towards that side of the coin.
Denihilist: Yautja (2014)(Nashville)(29:16-32:39)
One of the leading doom songs of the year.
Random Cosmic Violence: Usnea (Portland)(33:29-44:19)
Young energetic aggression. Of course, Australia.
Birkenau: Years of Abuse (Australia)(44:45-45:37)
Irreversible’s last album contains a whole buncha sounds and genres. This song incorporates some industrial.
Mandatory Death: Irreversible (Atlanta)(46:38-51:10)
Torch Runner has a great split with one of my fave bands, Young and in the Way. That gives Torch Runner MAJOR street cred. They know how to grind and groove with the best.
Godlust: Torch Runner (NC)(51:49-53:59)
Philly beer, grit, venues under dark bridges all contribute to the level of musicianship coming forth from this town.
HIPPAA Laws: Toska (2014)(Philly)(54:40-56:48)
Oh, Weedeater. Need I say more.
This is old, but here is Weedeater doing a serious tasting of cough syrup and cheese.
Bully: Weedeater (NC)(57:44-59:29)
Richmond makes ‘em mean.
United: Venomspitter (VA)(59:57-1:01:48)
Angry intensity from Ohio.
