Compilation Dissertation – Ball de Bastons / Makil Dantza

Been awhile since we did one of these.  So for those of you who missed out on our last one, let's explain before we begin, because this is a lot of reading, and it should be because it's a lot of work, thus the title of this feature. Compilation Dissertation is where we give a […]

Old Lines – No Child Left Behind

After all that Thanksgiving indulging where we questioned the existence of such a cool-to-hate-on holiday (for a number of a reasons), we were in the mood for a full-course serving of several overly-filling genres at once.  Like a turkey that's been brined for a week in cigarette butts and street water, we were looking for […]

Hemorrhage – Chapter One EP

How many times have we opened a review with "wow" around here?  One too many, certainly, so let's start this one out on a different note.  If only we had the buzzwords to do it...at least one...  What about a phrase instead?  How about simply this is of the "I want to punch someone who […]

All Torn Up! – Drone Life

What is it with bands sometimes including punctuation in their name?  We've seen this before with hardcore, but it's really an interesting phenomenon, and some day someone is going to need a sociology dissertation, or maybe in linguistics, so there you go, figure this one out.  Or, rather, figure this one out!  Not too long […]

SCUMRISE!: Super Hits EP

SCUMRISE!: Super Hits EP

Finland has a rather vibrant underground, but most of what we've heard here is of the hardcore variety, for some reason.  Yes, believe it or not, Finnish hardcore is a "a thing," as it were.  Why do we question your belief?  Because who associates Finland with anything but trolls and poorly-written troll metal, right?  Well, […]

Siege: Lost Session 91

Don't know Siege?  Get out of here, go back to listening to Scum with the corrected track list.  Often billed as one of the first hardcore, grindcore bands, sometimes powerviolence bands, for genre snobs, Siege were way ahead of their time, regardless of your selection at the musical buffet.  Even today, listening to the awesome Relapse […]

Interview with The Teeth (Not Those Indie Guys)

With all the post-hardcore and hardcore mess we tend to receive around here, it was inevitable that we at Deaf Sparrow would receive a submission from a band that was one, not French, and two, good.  That would be The Teeth, whose second full-length we reviewed a few weeks ago.  With a new tour coming […]

The Vault: Pollution – N.S. Drugs

Here it is folks, a resurrection, the first resurrection, maybe the only resurrection you're ever going to need.  A new feature we're going to do around here is hereby called "The Vault," but maybe we'll change that sometime in the future.  Basically, old reviews from the original site will be reposted here, if we feel they're […]

Zozobra: Savage Masters

The Zozobra (Old Man Gloom) is an enormous effigy that's built  and burnt every fall in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  People use the Zozobra as symbol of ridding themselves of their gloom for the coming winter, by lighting it all on fire but essentially going on to repeat the exact same mistakes they were trying […]
