(U.S.) Brianna Kelly / Sympathy Pain Cassette (2018)

Country: USA
Genre: Post Rock, Drone, Shoegaze, Slowcore
Label: Whited Sepulchre
Tracks: 6
Length: 47.20'

Birthed from the same SLC creative community that brought forth artists like Stag Hare, braeyden jae and Seven Feathers Rainwater, Skyler Hitchcox has been crafting trembling guitar-based drone compositions since the early-aughts under the name Silver Antlers. Sympathy Pain represents the truest and most distilled version of Skyler’s emotional heft. Striking a balance between death-to-crescendocore post-rock, static-filled droning and skyward guitar lines, Skyler is joined on keys by Cult Leader drummer Casey Hansen, imbuing these two compositions with living shadows and dead reflections.

Cincinnati based Brianna Kelly crafts songs that attach themselves to a fleeting connection with the unseen world while rooting itself in a very real topography and landscape. A submission to a force that continues on with or without our attention/devotion In her liturgical drone-pop songs Brianna weaves hypnotic drones and swells through “When You See It” and “Sanctus” while recalling Julianna Barwick and Grouper in their sedated push and pull. “To Behold You” is held sway under the plodding gloom of Planning for Burial’s linear heaviness.

Brianna also plays guitar and sings in the band Soften.  

(Press Note)

*Wow, this is an amazing collaboration between Brianna Kelly and SLC's Sympathy Pain.  On their collaboration together, Brianna Kelly and Sympathy Pain offer up six tracks of killer post rock, drone, shoegaze, and slowcore.  Overall, this is an amazing collaboration cassette and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy! This amazing collaboration was released via Whited Sepulchre records on February 27th, 2018.

(U.S.) Integrity "SDK"/Bleach Everything "RFTCC"-Split LP (2019)

Country: USA
Genre: Hardcore, Punk, Metal, Crust, Thrash, Powerviolence
Label: Dark Operative
Tracks: 10
Length: 16.45'

As a tribute to a 1992 split 2x7" between Septic Death and Rocket from the Crypt (limited to 100) on Pushead's Bacteria Sour label, Integrity and Bleach Everything offer their own modern takes on both bands in the form of a split LP.

With "SDK" (Septic Death Karaoke), Integrity utilizes some original Septic Death source material and layers their own vocal and guitar overdubs atop five of the band's classics. While previous "SDK" releases exist with some of these songs, Dwid Hellion and Domenic Romeo completely re-recorded and overhauled entirely new 2019 takes on all material while offering up "Sweat of a Nightmare" for the very first time.

On "RFTCC" (Rocket From The Crypt Covers), Bleach Everything erect monolithic tributes to Rocket From The Crypt entirely from scratch, adding speed to "Middle," multi-part harmonies and guest vocalists (Riley Gale of Power Trip, Mike Kennerty of The All-American Rejects) to "On a Rope," psychedelia to "Sturdy Wrists," a deconstructed meditation on "I'm Not Invisible" in the form of a passage titled "Vital Signs," and the album's conclusion: a heavy, slowed-down take on "I'm Not Invisible" in all its glory, capped off by an outro from Christopher Royal King of This Will Destroy You.

In further celebration of Septic Death and Rocket From The Crypt's enduring legacies, this album sees release on the only day that makes sense: Halloween 2019.

*Damn, this is an awesome split featuring re-interpretations of the Rocket From The Crypt/Septic Death double split 7" by Integrity and Bleach Everything.  Integrity offer up five Septic Death covers and Bleach Everything offer up five covers by Rocket From The Crypt.  Overall, this is a killer LP an definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy! The split LP was released via Dark Operative records on October 31st, 2019.
