Yonder-Temple Of Eyes LP (2019)

Country: Germany
Genre: Hardcore, Punk, Crust
Label: WOOAAARGH Records
Tracks: 3
Length: 19.35'


YONDER conjure epic blackened crust landscapes on their debut EP 'Temple Of Eyes'. The German 4 piece deliver a meticulously constructed aural triptych here, themes of religious oppression, the pressure of society and of world wide injustice are integral to every part of this release.
 
Sound-wise YONDER are something of a unique beast, drawing on influences as diverse as the stadium punk riffing of Wolfbrigade to the almost post-rock tinged elements of "Cascadian" Black Metal and moments reminiscent of early Mayhem.
None of these sounds feel bolted on, the atmospheric trem-picking morphs seamlessly into D-beats and the drums and bass match pace with exceptional fluidity.
Over everything the vocals hunch vulture-like, distant hoarse howls and cries that tread the line between the shriek of black metal and the growl typically employed by crust bands.
 
This is more of a headbanging release than a mind erasing one- the blasts are less frequent than the D-beats but when employed have that clattering frantic punk style that always adds an edge of urgency before breaking to neck cracking headbanger tempo.
The overall energy here is frantic, but the sections where it breaks to atmosphere give an edge of tragic melancholy to proceedings that is truly deserving of attention.
 
A hugely dynamic and exciting release from a band with much to look forward to!

100000 Tonnen Kruppstahl-Teeth Fletcher LP (2019)

Country: Germany
Genre: Post Metal, Doom, Sludge, Stoner Metal
Label: WOOAAARGH Records
Tracks: 4
Length: 72.40'

100,000 TONNEN KRUPPSTAHL prepare to bury listeners' ears in crumbling valve warmth on their third full length 'Teeth Fletcher'. One enormous track in four parts, the German guitar/drums duo build a twisted tone shrine from doom and noise components. Strong references can be found amongst the foundation to groups like The Melvins and Bongripper, with layers of supremely fuzz drenched guitar churning above a core of dynamic, rolling drums that refuse to sit still. This is Doom with drive.

'Teeth Fletcher' plays almost like prose, it has themes and returns to ideas, book-ending sections with a remembered riff or drum pattern. The vocals come (as much of the album does) in a layered style, ranging from shouting and drawn out almost spoken word sounding sections, to demonic sounding howls and screeching. These vocals mimic the dynamics and pacing of the instruments, and they vary their pace rhythmically. At it's fastest it is hard not to have bands like High On Fire spring to mind, with the punishing drums and growling riffs overtaking each other in true Motor-charged fashion.

100,000 TONNEN KRUPPSTAHL do not even flirt with pretension on 'Teeth Fletcher', there are no drawn out noise atmospheres, no technical guitar licks, nothing to distract from the power of the riff and the strength of the individual performances. The drums are strong and present throughout, never sitting still or abating in their consistent pummeling, the guitar has that perfect noise tinged fuzzy doom sound, wrapping the brain of the listener in a warm blanket and transporting them to some other world from beginning to the end of the release.

A monumental effort worthy of the legacy Sleep left with Dopesmoker. The eternal doom track!

Happy Dead Pulpit Day


If you didn't know, I started this blog on July 4th, 2013. It had nothing to do with patriotism, but it is what it is. Every day I wake up and expect the site to be shut down by some record company but here we are, not only alive and kicking, but stronger than ever. Chris is a fucking machine with his non-stop posts, and not only are the chat boxes very active, but they are filled with amazing people and zero drama, something that is extremely rare in 2019. I also appreciate everyone putting up with my random Synth & Trap obsessions. At the end of the day I just want to thank everyone for being here and for being cool. There have been a ton of amazing hardcore blogs, but a lot of them have come and gone. The fact that we are still here is one of the only things that consistently make me happy in life. So thank you!  ~ADAM

(U.S.) Depressor-Hell Storms Over Earth LP (2019)

Country: USA
Genre: Death Metal, Crust, Industrial

Label: Sentient Ruin Laboratories
Tracks: 18
Length: 32.40'

The ultimate and final compendium of long lost and unreleased songs from San Francisco's legendary industrial/death metal/crust cult Depressor, remastered, re-packaged and elevated to the status of audio/visual shrine in honor of one of the heaviest and most elusive and visionary underground American punk/metal bands of our times.

"Hell Storms Over Earth" is the final statement in what was Depressor's glorious late 90's/early 00's "crust era", when the band abandoned the polished and well-produced Godflesh-worshiping drum machine-based industrial metal sound of its early and mid 90's beginnings (as seen in the iconic "Filth" and "Grace" demo releases) and opted to home-record everything thereafter on a four track recorder and steer their sound toward a more death metal/crust hybridized sound influenced by bands like Amebix, Celtic Frost, GISM, Voivod, Discharge and Napalm Death. This move pushed the band's sound over the edge into a void of despair and yielded a blown out low end dirty sound of utmost rawness and hatred. These are not only long lost or downright never before heard tracks from a legendary Bay Area cult band then at the forefront of change and renovation, but a priceless document of their times, a snapshot of an era long gone and forgotten, and a window opened into a time of turmoil and struggle which yielded some of the most dark, visionary and thought-provoking punk/metal hybridizations of our times.
