(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.

TIRED MINDS - Loom LP (2017)


From their Bandcamp page:

Art As Catharsis are proud to announce the release of LOOM, by Newcastle’s Tired Minds. With LOOM, Tired Minds have achieved something truly remarkable. While one might be tempted to label them hardcore, their sonic palette extends far beyond traditional boundaries. Bursts of technicality, layered guitar work, and an experimental, free-flowing approach to songwriting have allowed Tired Minds to create an album that is raw, powerful, and utterly unique. 

At various points, LOOM calls to mind The Dillinger Escape Plan through bursts of violence; La Dispute with it’s intense emotional content; Converge through the beautiful, organic production; Cursed in the darkness that swirls underneath the music; even The Bronx in rare moments of rock-catchiness. This is Australian heavy music at its very best.

SIFTER


so after the release of the new meatwound, I went on a tad binge, and that reminded me of these guys. don't know much about them other than I believe this was their only release and they were from Brooklyn. I know they had 1 song on that old mid/late 90s victory records comp "area 51". but that was enough to get me hooked. odd they made it on that though considering nothing else on there sounded like them. anyhow this sounds a lot like tads last 2 albums, and I also pick up hints of early afghan whigs as well.
