ex-members of Confessor and Breadwinner. they made an album 8 years ago or something and it just dropped on Southern Lord. from what i’ve gathered, this is the demo that preceded it. and if it’s any indication, the album itself should kick some pretty serious ass.
best. Herbie jams. ever. for my taste, at least
Tobacco before Tobacco, or something
another vonfrostdoesn’ttaganything “steal” of another band i largely overlooked back in the day… or maybe i just didn’t end up hearing the right shit back then. some yummy fuzz goin’ on here… and i ain’t talkin’ ’bout no 70’s-bush either, even if there is a mildly passing similarity (however slight) to Pussy Galore
for some reason, i always overlooked this band in my earlier punk/hardcore days. not really sure why, but hearing this now i’m realizing what i was missing out on. i had no idea how deliciously unhinged these guys were. if you’re in the same boat, time to join me in this filthy water
two covers? hmmm. yes, i know vonfrostpunk posted this recently, but 1) it’s awesome so i’m “re-blogging” and you’ll just have to deal with it; 2) they never tag shit properly (or at all) over there half the time anyway, so i’m doing you a favor
would you like a little chiptune with your serving of over-the-top tech-metal this evening?
lo-fi black metal might be a bit overdone these days, but this release conquers most in that arena
anything involving Zu, or members thereof, is total win. this is no exception
one of my favorite heavy releases of the last few years. everyone should hear this. the relatively unnecessary bonus Endless Blockade tracks are included for the sake of completists, but sticking to what’s on the vinyl version will still give you everything you need from this
current-day kraut-worship rarely sounds this good
you might want to stay away from this one if you prefer their “metal” side… personally, i think it’s awesome that they can go from that to this
if Greg Ginn had joined The Fall in the 80s, and they had tried to sound like Sun City Girls at times, it probably would have sounded a lot like this
