(U.S.) american-Violate And Control LP (2017)

Country: USA
Genre: Black Metal, Industrial, Noise
Label: Sentient Ruin Laboratories
Tracks: 10
Length: 43.3'

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the release of Violate and Control - the second astonishing full-length album by enigmatic US black metal/noise/industrial abusers american (stylized lowercase).

Hailing from Richmond, Virgina, and with influences ranging from The Body, Leviathan, Ministry, and Skinny Puppy, to Craft, Godlflesh, and Blut Aus Nord, american play a disembodied, torturous and completely fucking annihilated blend of sludge, black metal, industrial, and harsh noise - creating a wall of face-tearing noise that oozes of almost implausible negativity. In recent years the likes of Noisey/Vice have claimed that american’s noisy industrial black metal “takes you into a world of pain”, and makes you “beg to whoever you believe in to kill you”, with CVLT Nation explaining that their music “advocates suicide”, and Invisible Oranges further elaborating that their music “is blessed with a haunting aura thick with loathing”.
Now the band present us with ten new wretched tracks of astonishing sonic abuse that knows no end. A work of absolutely magnificent sonic abhorrence that coerces together the abyssal darkness of black metal bands like Leviathan and Ash Borer, the earth-shaking noise abuse of Bastard Noise and The Body, and the glacial magnificence of blackened noise sound sculptors like Sutekh Hexen, Locrian, and Wold

(Press Note)

*This is some seriously amazing Black Metal, Industrial, and Noise.  Do Not Sleep on this!  Seriously, I can't begin to describe how good this is!  Violate And Control was released via Sentient Ruin Laboratories on 6/21/17.

STRICK - Monotonie EP (2017)


OK so this is an intriguing band. Normally a band is a Black Metal band, or they are a Hardcore Crust band, or a Grind band, etc etc. But I don't know if I've ever heard a band combine those three genre's into a Blackened symphony quite like Munich, Germany's STRICK does. This is a very cool EP and I think even if you only normally like one of those three styles, I think you will still dig this. The EP is only 4 tracks but there is a 17-minute 5th track that is one of their live sets, and it sounds so good, it's almost indistinguishable from the rest. Highly recommended stuff.
