american – Violate and Control (Sigh, My Tears Flow)

Facebook was begging me to post something for all of you because I haven’t been. This album is why. Now and then I get hit, hard, by a revelation. Here it is. Sometimes people accept goodness on what everyone else says and assume the opinion as their own. When I first knew that american was […]

khost – Governance SPECIAL EDITION

Well, folks, I mean autocrats, if you didn’t notice before because you’re new, or because it’s been so long, I’m finally getting back into production again. Deaf Sparrow has functioned as a limited-edition label before, but it’s been some time since my last release, which was a special cassette version of the album Ordained by Usurpress. […]

RUIN – Drown in Blood (Better Through Headphones)

Okay, listen, bands, hey, if you’re picking a name, please, please make sure it hasn’t been goddamn picked already! I just don’t get that. Then you have to add (US), or whatever country, followed by state or territory, maybe even town if you’re dumb enough to stick with the name when there’s already a band going by […]

SPLITting Headache – Some Stuff

You know for all the damn splits that were released in the past year, I sure got only a few of them in the promo emails and regular mail. Why? Why can I not enjoy more splitting of the production costs and music? Why can I not compare one band to another on the same […]

Grime – Circle of Molesters

Sludge is an interesting genre.  It’s something like grindcore, but with way less blast beats to cover up crap riffs, and more of a groove.  As such, one can consider it grindcore gone meinstreem, or perhaps better to say a genre that can capture the attention of more than a distinct few weirdos who only […]

Shrine of the Serpent – S/T

How slow can slow be?  If one gets too slow can that slowly lead to slow degradation?  Or is all slow good if we’re talking about doom?  The word doom itself implies a slowing, if you will, so slow must be the way of the word and the truth, correct?  Well, yes, theoretically, provided the […]

Sigihl – Trauermärsche (And a Tango Upon the World’s Grave)

Sat on this one for awhile.  But it was much unlike the usual type of sitting.  It wasn’t like sitting on your easy chair, or a lawn chair, or an armchair, it was more like a chair of nails, such as would have been used during the Witch Craze.  This would be a useful analogy […]

Mayak – Allegiance to None

Now here’s an interesting mix from Bielefeld, Germany.  In this modern era, you have the pontifiers of the classique, those who refuse to quit the age-old style of various genres, content with appealing to a rather stagnant fan base.  In addition to that camp you have the truly unique, those who often create a wide […]

Usurpress – Ordained

This one’s been stewing in the old brain much like a fine, expensive ham.  Much like a ham we just purchased for $90 (that’s not a joke) that we made without realizing we had neither the time or energy to eat all that ham.  This one here, it sat in there, it heated, it melted, […]
