SLOTHS – Twenty Years

Ahh, let us just relax, kick back, put on the fire, turn down the lights, and relax with some nice post.  Every now and then you need some post in your life.  Honey, please hand me the post, it's been a rough day, the kids are getting to me, thank you.  Dear, I'm not feeling […]

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 […]

Interview With Regarde les Hommes Tomber (France Is Here to Destroy)

How many times have we said now that French post-hardcore is of the world-dominating caliber?  We try our best to not be redundant, but God help us is it possible as human beings?  You get up, you sleep, you eat, you have babies, really we all do it, right?  So why not do it with […]

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 […]

Wild Throne: Blood Maker

Yeah, sometimes bands can blow you the feck away.  Like totally.  Like you look behind you and where you expect to at least see limbs there's barely a spray of blood and miniscule chunks.  If there are chunks they're practically the same splatter as the rest of it.  Blood Maker comes via way of Brutal Panda […]

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 […]

Greenhorn – The Plague Doctor’s Mask EP

Nothing beats receiving a self-released hack-job that actually ends up being...awesome.  "What is this?" you wonder, as you stare at what looks like a...like a...yes that is the skull of a triceratops.  Wait a minute, guys, this isn't even a plague doctor's mask!  Okay, for once, let's not put this aside, we said, let's take […]

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 […]

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 […]
