Regarde les Hommes Tomber: S/T

Regarde les Hommes Tomber: S/T

Here we go again, time to get redundant up in this.  French hardcore, especially of the post variety, dominates.  It's one of the most atmospheric, creative, and musically confrontational hotbeds in the modern scene.  We were first enlightened on this subject several years ago, and since then have been continually enlightened, endlessly enlightened.  We're so […]

The Teeth: Homewrecker

One of the best things to do as a music critic is take a release and stick it in without doing any research.  Research should come after.  Why?  Because this gets all of the stereotyping out of your system, so when you prove yourself wrong you end up with a much more honest review.  It's […]

Pasadena Napalm Division: S/T

Stoked probably isn't the word we're searching for when we begin our discussion of this masterpiece to signify the bodily sensations that erupted when we heard it was going down, it was all going down.  Finally, the full-length was prepared.  Aflame wouldn't cut it either, and neither would afire.  This requires some sort of clever […]

Lody Kong: No Rules

The family name of Cavalera strikes true to many hearts of metal fans and for good reason. Bands such as the legendary Sepultura, Soulfly, and Cavalera Conspiracy have reigned well and have continued to have a strong influence in the metal community. Now Max Cavalera’s sons have formed Lody Kong, a four piece nu metal/thrash […]

Kause 4 Konflikt: No Better Friend – No Worse Enemy

This one looks just plain awful on the surface. It reads like the worst of hardcore with Kottonmouth Kings and Slipknot bringing up the fore to end your life brah, and the band members even have themselves dressed like Mushroomhead or something unspeakable, as a quick internet search reveals.  Suffice to say it looked like […]

All Pigs Must Die: Nothing Violates This Nature

All Pigs Must Die is first off, a pretty fucking brutal name. Gotta give em’ credit for that. Secondly, their album, Nothing Violates This Nature, is one of the most primal and chaotic hardcore punk albums to be released in 2013. This is the kind of music that is truly unforgiving - the kind of […]

No Turning Back: No Regrets

Some people have been around too long.  They've been around so long they forget how long it's been, and they still think it's "back then" when it's actually "today".  No Turning Back is the definition of irony.  It wants to suggest it's been forged in the fires of the future, but it's actually long-cold steel […]

ism: Demo

Don't be fooled by the powerviolence tag you'll find on the Bandcamp page we have nicely linked below, because there's not a bit of that in this.  So, sorry, no girlfriend-in-side-project cameos that were clearly to make sure an "evening of fun" took place, as much as you'd want that to happen.  But, hey, that's […]

Nothingness: No Happy Ending

Picked this one up, said, "yeah, deathcore/metalcore or some crap, we'll wait on it".  Damn these stereotypes and biases, they plague our minds!  Someone out there save us, free our mind from these genre tags that bind us!  Well, hey, can't blame us entirely, the artwork pretty much said what it needed to, and it […]

Common Enemy: As the World Burns

It's amazing bands like this still exist, it really is.  It makes some of us realize how old we really are, that dreadful feeling of "been there done that" about a million times, the "heard it all" sensation, the "back in my day" sensation, also the "why does this still go on and when will […]
