SOOM – Джєбарс (Robustfellow)

Sometimes, just sometimes, I feel the need for slow, hellish music. Sometimes, I just want to hear something that is viciously callous and devastating. Thankfully, noise-terrorists SOOM recently released their second album Джєбарс, to be honest I expect a lot from this full length… Chief of the Robustfellow label gave me this tape for review. I must say, I was really surprised with its looks and design. This is some truly nerdy stuff; the colors, the form, the way the whole hardcover connected – it’s really something. All polygraphy was made in Ukraine but the tapes were made and recorded … Continue reading SOOM – Джєбарс (Robustfellow)

Krupskaya (09.02.18)

Hi brothers! How are you guys? Hope that you packed a few fresh pair of pants for your small journey Alex: Absolutely! The washing machine is on, the set is sounding tight – really looking forward to it. Riley: Besides a short stint across the UK with my old band some twelve years ago, I’ve never actually been on tour, so it’s a bit of a strange mix between excitement and nerves at the moment. Matt: To be honest, there’s been a few details of the tour that have caused a bit more stress than usual. But now everything’s sorted … Continue reading Krupskaya (09.02.18)

Noise – Demo Tapes 1991-1995 LP (SPHC)

I`m sure that many of tje noise freaks were very excited when they heard news about this release. This LP is like one old time bomb which contains some pretty rare stuff (here you may find the first 5 demo tape of Noise the band). These tapes were released at the beginning of 90’s , all of them were made in a totally diy way (self-recorded and self-released). Well in my opinion those early years were the dawn for many of the extreme and harsh genres, whether metal or noise, punk or grind. By the way one of the most … Continue reading Noise – Demo Tapes 1991-1995 LP (SPHC)

Beelzebeat – Mondo Trasho Or A Strange Walk On The Filthy Side

Maybe for someone this review will be something like an offtop but I can’t keep a silence hahaha! The Beelzebeats are really strange band, why? That because guys mix psyhobilly, grindcore and rock n roll! I guess many of hard grind and psychobilly fans don’t like them “because it`s a boolshit not a grind/psycho” hahaha, but fuck them. This groovy music overcrowded with mad swing energy. If the names “Gore Beyond Necropsy”, “Noise a Go Go`s”, “Penis Vibrator” are not the empty sound for you then you will definitely love “Mondo Trasho Or A Strange Walk On The Filthy Side”. … Continue reading Beelzebeat – Mondo Trasho Or A Strange Walk On The Filthy Side

Fuck, Bud! – demo (self release)

What is the most primitive thing that you have heard? I’m sure that the duo Fuck, Bud! Will surprise you! If anybody remembers Finnish guys from the Ramin Kuntopolku, these two Canadian-American psychos sound more primitive than they are ahaha! But the primitivism here does not mean something bad… this raw and stupid noise is pretty funny. Close in the basement, Neal (Truth of All Death) and Ben (Cephalophore), recorded a small tape in their own pleasure. You can hear how the guys fool around, are trying to create different rhythms, and fool around again. And it seems that the … Continue reading Fuck, Bud! – demo (self release)

Prisoner 639 / StevexJobs

The first thing that caught my attention in this release is a photo on the cover. Hell, I’ve seen a lot of things but such action I see for the first time. I do not know what kind of sick mind could come up with to harness the hippo in the wagon. Ahah, weird stuff))) On this split you will find a confluence of two strange powerful violence bands from Belgium and Argentina. Perhaps I’ll start from the Prisoner 639. With using only bass and drums the music of these guys that sounds very hard and noisy. Their powerful violence … Continue reading Prisoner 639 / StevexJobs

Misanthropic Ignorance!

Misanthropic Ignorance was started primarily to release my own band’s releases along with my friends projects. The label has been primarily used to for grindcore, goregrind, noisecore, harsh noise, dark ambient, and black metal projects. At this point the releasing has halted for the most part but will continue to release works from time to time. The store includes distro items, label releases, and personal collection items. (The label is ran by Kyle from Couple Skate) Next release is that of a live PIZZAHIFIVE tape including a soundboard recording from their set at the Agathocles show in Cleveland 2016. This will … Continue reading Misanthropic Ignorance!

Discophobia / Slecht ‎(Vleesklak Records)

It’s impossible to release only good stuff all the time, something messy and shitty can always happen. After listening to this material I understood that this split is one of the worst Vleesklak Records releases. I never heard these bands before so I didnt expect nothing speсial from them… but I still would like to ask one big question “why would someone release something like that on vinyl?”… Discophobia – if I understand correctly it`s one more project from belgian maniac who`s standing behind VRV band. Honestly I have tried to listen to that stuff but I havent found any … Continue reading Discophobia / Slecht ‎(Vleesklak Records)

Hyperemesis / Girth / Horrendous Miscreation (Grindfather Productions)

Be careful! This tape can damage your ears and brain! Oh… this is one of those cassettes which I honestly can call a real anti music. It`s a european version of this split and it looks very cool. That severed head in the reservoir, internal design and also combination of yellow and black colors all these looks perfect! I can say truely that Jacek made his best. But internal noise it really something. As I know this noise was recorded on tape desk with microphone and not through sound mixer, so everything sounds properly Sometimes it’s really hard to understand … Continue reading Hyperemesis / Girth / Horrendous Miscreation (Grindfather Productions)

Reeking Cross – Cloaked In Vermin

Who wants some good and fresh noise?) It’s pretty hard for me to determine the criteria to evaluate this record, but simply writing about how this tape kicks my ass is not something I want to do. It`s at least not fair. Okay lets start with the fact that Reeking Cross is young (but with not so young members, hehe) international noisegrind band which is not sitting still and creates some new stuff. People from such bands as Enemy Soil & Wadge were involved in this record (I think you already begin to suspect what can be expected from their … Continue reading Reeking Cross – Cloaked In Vermin
