Prolefeed/Henry Kane-Split LP (2017)

Country: United Kingdom/Sweden
Genre: Hardcore, Punk, Crust, Powerviolence
Label: WOOAAARGH/Goatshead Records
Tracks: 15
Length: 19.57'

This split marks the long awaited third vinyl release of crusty North East UK hardcore oinks Prolefeed, written immediately following 2015s ear pummeling split with War All The Time. The fact that this was recorded and mixed in a single day speaks to the raw speed and agression on display and the ten tracks blitz past within 13 mins.
This is drummer Rob Woodcock’s final release with the band but he goes out on a high, bullying the snare through relentless thrashing d-beats and rapid, clattering fills. This whole side buzzes with a screaming treble-strung intesity to the production, and a suprising (for those unfamiliar with the band) clarity to the instrumentals. The bass in particular has a very clear tone, Dan's fantastic, lighning fast runs cutting through the tradtitionally crusty buzzsaw guitar for some stand out moments of musicianship, running counter to the abrasive vocal screams of frontman Dickie (also of Sawn Off).
Ten rapid fire songs with signature caustic guitar riffs, blitzkrieg basslines and Melvinsesque drumming, this isn’t your average hardcore record.
Quickly following up their debut "Den förstörda människans rike", Henry Kane provides 9 minutes of punishing one-man Swedish Swedeath grindcore. Following the same path of audial terror. Henry Kane is the solo effort of Johnny Pettersson of Wombbath, Ashcloud, Gods Forsaken and dozens of other nightmare inducing death metal bands. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Unbound, you could be forgiven for thinking this side of the split was a previously unreleased Rotten Sound effort. Absolutely relentless clinical blast beats and ear shattering chainsaw guitar sounds argue with throat shredding vocals here.
These five tracks have no time for pretension, no prog moments of atmosphere or technical peacocking. The only atmosphere is that of a dense cloud of gain, the only technicality the speed of the performence. Proper blasting grind! 
Art by Prolefeed bassist Daniel Hughes in response to a wave of religious violence and thoughtless hatred perpetuated by the media. Fuck religious violence//Fuck religious hate. The Mass Forfeiture of Collective Responsibility comes with a wrap around 2 foot poster and is released on the 13th October via WOOAAARGH & Goatshead Records! (Press Note)

*This is some insanely vicious, brutal and completely unhinged hardcore, punk, crust, and powerviolence from UK's Prolefeed and Sweden's Henry Kane.  Overall, this split makes for a killer listen.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  This killer split was released via WOOAAARGH! and Goatshead records on October 13th, 2017.

(JAP) Friendship-Hatred LP (2017)

Country: Japan
Genre: Hardcore, Punk, Crust, Powerviolence
Label: Sentient Ruin Laboratories/Southern Lord Records
Tracks: 12
Length: 23.05'


Hailing from the Chiba prefecture of western Japan, Friendship are one of the most vile, antagonist, and visionary grind/powerviolence acts to have ever emerged from The Land of the Rising Sun. Their absurdly devastating music comes together as a collapsing black hole that devours everything with maniacal ferocity, sparing nothing from the plain of existence. In perfect adherence to the tradition of Japanese extreme music where everything is always taken to ridiculous and mindless extremes, Friendship's music is like a chain reaction that can not be stopped - the devastating consequence of an uncontrolled nuclear fission of Japan's most praised and iconic musical extremities embracing the full scale auditive terror of legendary American powerviolence bands like Nails, Column of Heaven, Man Is The Bastard, Iron Lung, and Hatred Surge, and the tormented sludge dirges of masters like Swans, Godflesh, Corrupted, Noothgrush, and Dystopia. (Press Note)

*This is some harsh, abrasive, and vicious as fuck sounding hardcore, punk, crust, and powerviolence.  Seriously, this absolutely rips.  Hatred was released via Sentient Ruin Laboratories and Southern Lord records on November 16th, 2017.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
