Twitching Tongues - World War Live - promo cover pic - 2014

TWITCHING TONGUES and Closed Casket Activities are proud to announce the World War LIVE limited “live” LP/CD.

Recorded live in the Van Nuys stadium called THE PIT in front of twenty screaming fans, this is (not) a true testament to the event that occurs when this band hits the stage. The band was tired of hearing “they’re better live,” so here it is. With a setlist comprised mostly of songs from their latest LP, In Love There Is No Law, as well as previous material, the record almost doubles as a best-of the band’s current stage. The album cover was made by the legendary Sean Taggart (Carnivore, Crumbsuckers, Agnostic Front) and hardcopy buyers will regret their purchases slightly less with the addition of bonus material.

Closed Casket will release World War LIVE on CD, LP and digital download on August 12th; preorders will be available shortly. A video trailer for the album is playing below:

World War LIVE – Track Listing:

1. Eyes Adjust

2. Burn Forever

3. Preacher Man

4. Feed Your Disease

5. Sleep

6. Good Luck…

7. In Love There Is No Law

8. World War V

9. Sorry I’m Not

RUN WITH THE HUNTED – New Full-Length From Arizona Punk/Hardcore Unit Streaming In Its Entirety; Preorders Available

Posted in hardcore, hardcore bands, music news, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Run With The Hunted - promo live band pic - 2014 - #9977

With the official detonation of their forthcoming new full-length, The Sieve And The Sand, now less than a week away, Arizona punk/hardcore unit, RUN WITH THE HUNTED, offers rambunctious ears a chance to hear the record in its entirety!

A name derived from classic dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Sieve And The Sand serves as the follow-up to the band’s 2011 self-titled full-length, which Punknews fittingly commended for its “heavy, lurching mosh parts.” Engineered and mixed by Alex Estrada (Touche Amore, Nails, Joyce Manor) and mastered by New Alliance East (Converge, Dropdead, Doomriders), RUN WITH THE HUNTED defies genre norms, sporting a maturity seldom realized in hardcore, seamlessly weaving in and out of multiple genres while maintaining the constant sense of urgency and desperation for which they are known. The result is a seven-track monolithic offering fit for The Secret, Champion and Burning Love enthusiasts, encompassing a lifetime of pain, struggle and a desperate search for meaning and purpose in an otherwise careless world.

Metal Insider notes, “The band’s fourth album… should make fans of Every Time I Die or Converge feel right at home with their wild energy bound together by a focus on tight playing, knowing exactly when to lash out and when to remain poised” while American Aftermath boasts in a 9/10 review, “RUN WITH THE HUNTED have written their best record yet, plain and simple. The Sieve And The Sand is an intelligent, yet chaotic excursion lined with existential musings. Basically, do not sleep on this band.”

Sink into The Sieve And The Sand, now streaming in its entirety below:

The Sieve And The Sand will be released via Panic Records on June 3rd, 2014. For North American preorders, point your browser HERE. For European preorder, scroll HERE.

New York Hardcore icon, HARLEY FLANAGAN, is currently in the process of recording his newest LP, to be released on Southern Lord later this year.

With his musical roots tracing back to the beginning of the 1980s, FLANAGAN was involved in NYC punk act, The Stimulators, before even hitting his teens. In the mid-’80s he founded the legendary hardcore/crossover act, The Cro-Mags, directly after which the band releasing their seminal Age Of Quarrel LP. At the beginning of the millennium, the artist formed his own HARLEY’S WAR and released their debut album, Cro-Mag, in 2002.

FLANAGAN and several other players recently started laying down the basic tracks for the impending yet-to-be-named album, which will close the extensive twelve-year gap since the band’s initial works were released, and will undoubtedly be one of the premiere hardcore/punk releases of the year.

Issued FLANAGAN on signing with Southern Lord and the ongoing recording process of the new material: “I think that this is some of the hardest stuff I have written in a long time. God knows there has been a lot of inspiration over the last few years.” Southern Lord owner Greg Anderson this week stated on the upcoming release: “The demos we have heard thus far are incredible! We’re really looking forward to hearing this when it’s completed.”

FLANAGAN is a black belt under Renzo Gracie and teaches at the Renzo Gracie academy in NYC, as well as having a book and several other projects in the works.

Italian Grind/Hatecore Gods CRIPPLE BASTARDS Confirmed For Obscene Extreme

Cripple Bastards - promo live band pic - band logo - 2014 - #030550

You could say this is a ‘grindcore hat-trick’ as it is the third OEF appearance in 2014 for Italian hate mob Cripple Bastards after headlining the insane Obscene Extreme Asia in Tokyo and Obscene Extreme Australia in Melbourne earlier this year. But if you really want to see the Bastards play at home, then Obscene Extreme Trutnov is the grounds for the final massacre. They have been blasting the shit on stage since the festival’s birth back in 1999 and raised the most infernal stage diving pits for countless times through the years that followed.

26 years after their conception Cripple Bastards still hold the banner high as Italy’s most hostile and aggressive grind/hardcore unit around. With one foot firmly in the past and all the vicious savagery of manic fast 80’s hardcore extremity, Cripple Bastards are also charging forwards. With bloodshot eyes and a rabid ‘get out and bite them’ attitude, this band are ready to introduce their brand new 2014 full length ‘Nero In Metastasi’ on Relapse Records and they will consolidate their ongoing mission of bringing nihilistic, fuck-you-all, grinding hatred to every corner of an underserving mankind.

Cripple Bastards will also be introducing for the first time ever on Trutnov’s Battlefield their 5 piece line-up with new axeman Wild Vitto on second guitar which will only enhance their wall of hate/grind fury!

Listen to ‘Malato Terminale’ taken from the ‘Nero In Metastasi’ album!

SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS – UK Hardcore/Punk Act’s First Album In Twenty-Two Years Streaming At Decibel

Posted in hardcore, hardcore punk, Punk rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on October 17, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Satanic Malfunctions - Them - promo cover pic

Them, the first LP from UK hardcore punk trio SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS, is out now via Poland’s demolition experts, Selfmadegod Records. Surging with rabid, old-school circle-pit intensity and politically oriented, cynical and pissed-off lyrical tirades, Them dispatches twenty tracks in just over thirty minutes, resulting in one of those “get this now” releases for devotees to acts like Active Minds, Disorder, Doom, Atavistic, Electro Hippies, L’arm and Heresy.

Decibel Magazine is now hosting a full-on stream of the entire Them LP to celebrate its release, joined by a rapid interrogation of SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS’ percussion specialist, Ade. Check it out RIGHT HERE.

Pick Them up via Selfmadegod, who in 2012 also released the SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS Disgrace To Music 2xCD compilation both previous LPs and all EP and compilation tracks. Merch bundles are available now direct from Selfmadegod HERE, and Them is available digitally HERE.

The newest SATANIC MALFUNCTIONS LP since the Scarborough, UK-based act’s 1990-releasedDisgrace To Humanity, the whirlwind of old-school hardcore punk on Them is a throwback to the mid-late ’80s hardcore scene when grindcore was only beginning to take shape. Recorded by Bri Doom, of UK crust legends, Doom, Them proves that the quartet — vocalist Kai, guitarist Yaga, bassist Ryan and drummer Ade — haven’t let their guard down, and are as capable of deploying the same aggressive, ultra-fast and frenzied socio-political musical melee they did more than two decades ago.

FULL OF HELL – 14 Acts Of Audio Terrorism East Coast Tour Has Begun

Posted in hardcore, hardcore bands, hardcore punk, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 6, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Full Of Hell - promo live band pic - 2013 - #1 - B&W

On a seemingly endless live killing spree in 2013, noise/grind assailants FULL OF HELL have embarked on their next wave of live attacks on the two-week 14 Acts Of Audio Terrorism tour. The mayhem started last night in Bay Shore, Long Island with White Widows Pact and more, then plowing a counterclockwise warpath through Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, North and South Carolina before closing down in Virginia, the last three dates of the tour alongside A389 labelmates Noisem. View the updated tour itinerary below and await more violent live action from FULL OF HELL in the coming weeks.

This week FULL OF HELL posted a video of their recent session for Toxicbreed’s Funhouse, where they get halfway through the chaotic set before blowing out the power to the entire building. View that, as well as their first official video for the track “The Lord Is My Light” and more RIGHT HERE.

Continuing to tour in support of their most damaging and scathing material to date — their second LP, Rudiments Of Mutilation, released in June via A389 Recordings – FULL OF HELL has been slaying audiences all year-long. Recorded with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Old, Phantomsmasher), Rudiments Of Mutilation captures the incredible conviction the young crew culminate live, catapulting their energetic hatesurge into the audience and inspiring all-out melees amongst the humans. Stream the entire LP HERE.

FULL OF HELL September East Coast US Tour:

9/05/2013 Even Flow – Bay Shore, NY w/ White Widows Pact

9/06/2013 Webster Underground – Hartford, CT

9/07/2013 Bogies – Albany, NY

9/08/2013 Bug Jar – Rochester, NY

9/09/2013 Frankies – Toledo, OH

9/10/2013 Hoosier Dome – Indianapolis, IN

9/17/2013 Ziggy’s – Wilmington, NC w/ Noisem

9/18/2013 Strange Matter – Richmond, VA w/ Noisem

 Critical Praise:

“Full of Hell want to open wounds however they can. The four-piece is so focused on delivering bile-soaked fury that they’ll use nearly anything at their disposal. While most of the tracks are acrid flashes of grind and powerviolence, there are still treks through squeamish noise and torturous hardcore. Seems like there’s always new releases by these guys, but this is the best I’ve heard so far.” – Decibel

“…Rudiments of Mutilation is an incredible album that should not go unheard. It is sick, unnerving, excellently established, moody, violent, and one of the best damn records that will be put out this year. You want dark? Here it is motherfuckers. Eat it up. 9.5/10″ – Metal Injection

“…this is the band’s finest work to date and as a statement, Rudiments truly serves as a moving monument to the inevitability and eternality of human suffering. 10/10″ – American Aftermath

Empire Of Rats - S:T - promo cover pic

A389 Recordings this week proclaims the signing of Columbus, Ohio-based death-dealers EMPIRE OF RATS and the impending release of their vindictive self-titled debut full-length recording this Autumn.

A cast of warriors who have collectively done time in Palehorse, Under One Flag, Pitboss 2000 and countless others unify in their hateful talents in EMPIRE OF RATS, forming a devastating style which is a brutal reminder that heavy hardcore is alive and well. On their self-titled debut LP these scene-veterans have created a perfect record that is sincere, energetic and unapologetically pissed-off without coming off as paint-by-numbers, an eleven-anthem dose of metallic, unsuppressed aggression with a style that will inspire fans of Hatebreeed, 100 Demons, Cold As Life, Ringworm, Crucified, Homewrecker and the like to seek street revenge on their enemies in no time. Bearing cover art by Linas Garsys, the deal is sealed and now A389 will release the album via download and 12” vinyl on October 1st, 2013.

Today Lambgoat dishes out the first public beatdown from Empire Of Ratswith an exclusive stream of the track “Another Minute In Hell” – CLICK HERE TO UNLEASH.

Having stormed crowds live regionally across American wastelands including pit-fueled sets at U.S. festivals including The Rumble, This Is Hardcore and more, EMPIRE OF RATS will announce new live throwdowns and tour actions in support of the looming LP over the coming months.

Empire Of Rats – Track Listing:

1. Leeches

2. Another Minute In Hell

3. Bottomless Pit

4. Untitled

5. Society’s Zero

6. Rats Reign

7. Sinking

8. Little From The World

9. We’re Dead

10. Exposed

11. Early Mourning

Critical Praise:

“Full of Hell want to open wounds however they can. The four-piece is so focused on delivering bile-soaked fury that they’ll use nearly anything at their disposal. While most of the tracks are acrid flashes of grind and powerviolence, there are still treks through squeamish noise and torturous hardcore. Seems like there’s always new releases by these guys, but this is the best I’ve heard so far.” – Decibel

“…Rudiments of Mutilation is an incredible album that should not go unheard. It is sick, unnerving, excellently established, moody, violent, and one of the best damn records that will be put out this year. You want dark? Here it is motherfuckers. Eat it up. 9.5/10″ – Metal Injection

BL’AST! – An Unreleased Recording Session Brought To Life By Dave Grohl

Posted in hardcore, hardcore metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 5, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

BL'AST! - promo cover pic - Blood!

Set For September Release Via Southern Lord

_____________________________________

As far as stories of lost and found recorded material go, few tales can be told where all the pieces of the puzzle come together in fortunate ways, resulting in a brand new recording that surprised even the band themselves.

Having formed in 1982, infamous Santa Cruz hardcore legends BL’AST! released their first album, The Power of Expression in 1985. This debut blew everyone away and went on to become one of the highly sought after, “must- have” hardcore albums of the ‘80s. BL’AST! was beyond intense, continually pushing the boundaries of hardcore with their advanced musicianship, unstoppable energetic delivery and explosive live performances. This overwhelming power caught the attention of SST records, who released the band’s second album, It’s In My Blood in 1987.

Their third LP, Take The Manic Ride, was then released by the label in 1989. BL’AST!‘s wide-eyed, ambitious approach and intense perseverance became an influence for many bands to come. Shortly after the release of Take The Manic Ride, the band broke up and their story was buried by time and dust….UNTIL NOW!

Earlier this year BL’AST! guitarist Mike Neider contacted Southern Lord with news that he had found some mysterious old BL’AST! master tapes in an abandoned storage locker. Greg Anderson, a BL’AST! fanatic, wasted no time in sending the tapes to a studio to be baked. Needless to say, after 25 years gathering dust, the quality had deteriorated. Still, nobody could have anticipated what would follow. With the audio digitized, Southern Lord contacted fellow longtime BL’AST! fiend, Dave Grohl about mixing this recording, his response was an enthusiastic “FUCK YEAH!, LETS DO THIS”!

BL'AST! - Large Band Logo - red:black:white

Whilst inside Grohl’s famous 606 Studios (and with the Neve console as featured in the recent Grohl produced documentary Sound City) an astonishing discovery was made; a completely unheard, unreleased BL’AST! recording session from the mid-‘80s.

The lineup of the band at the time of the recording included second guitarist William Duvall (from Neon Christ, and now the current vocalist for Alice In Chains) who had moved from his hometown of Atlanta out to Santa Cruz on a tip from mutual friends, Corrosion of Conformity, to join the band. Unfortunately, his tenure with BL’AST! was short-lived and no recordings from that lineup were ever released.

From the thunderous bass intro of “Only Time Will Tell” to the apocalyptic warnings of “It’s In My Blood,” the album completely rips and rages from start to finish. All parties involved were completely amazed at how vibrant, unique and fresh this newly discovered material sounded. All things considered, it is miraculous the record survived this long and that everyone who was involved in bringing this recording to life, could be. Everything fell into place, when it could have easily crumbled along the way. This record is a time capsule that is meant to be heard!

There is no doubt in our minds that Blood! will be a crucial purchase for any current hardcore fiend as well as punk/hardcore fans who loved the band back in the day. START THE MACHINE!

Blood will see release via Southern Lord in North America on September 3, 2013. Stay tuned for further details to be unearthed. For now, check out a brand new visual trailer including the cover art for Blood! and more RIGHT HERE.

Counterparts - The Difference Between Hell and Home - promo coverAlbum Photography by Stephanie Mill

COUNTERPARTS has the Hardcore world waiting in anticipation for their third studio album, The Difference Between Hell and Home, which is set for a July 23rd release. Heartbreaking and honest, chaotic yet purposeful, fans can expect the same spitting aggression and emotive lyricism they’ve come to appreciate from COUNTERPARTS, magnified and turned all the way up.

Vocalist, Brendan Murphy comments, “There was so much preparation, thought, hard work, whatever you want to call it put into this record. We spent more time on these songs than I can even remember, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It’s everything we’ve ever done so far, but better. If you give a shit about Counterparts, you will like this record.”

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS “Walk Through Exits Only” – Some METAL Thoughts…

Posted in Extreme Metal, hardcore, hardcore metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on June 9, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals - Walk through exits only - promo cover

Philip H. Anselmo needs no introduction to any Metal fan on this planet. Metal legend. ‘Nuff said. Now, the coveted Metal resume of Philip H. Anselmo is expanding once again with his newest band: Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. A July 16th release date has been set for the release of his band’s album: Walk Through Exits Only.

Just the album title alone can easily sum up the path that Philip H. Anselmo has taken during his multi-brilliant Metal career. Philip H. Anselmo has persevered and stayed true to the Metal cause. I dare anyone to tell this Metal legend that “the entrance is that way, sir.” Like him or not, Philip H. Anselmo is and always will be a powerful Metal statesman and I personally could not see it any other way. Maybe my album title interpretation may differ from others; that’s what makes art such a dynamic gift upon our civilizations, I gather.

________________________________

I am beyond excited, that over the years Philip H. Anselmo has continued onward with one project after another; exemplifying that stagnation is for pussies in the first place. While many Metal fans speak of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob (The Metal God) Halford, Lemmy Kilmister and Alice Cooper (for examples) as our living Metal leaders, I cannot overlook the Metal historic importance of Philip H. Anselmo and his profound contributions to our Metal genres. This Metal legend has obviously touched all of our beloved Metal genres… and he has succeeded magnificently. In my Metal opinion, Philip H. Anselmo has.

I’ll be purchasing Walk Through Exits Only on July 16th, 2013. I will be happier than a pig in the most filthy of shit too. The realization that Philip H. Anselmo gives a damn about keeping Metal true and legitimately badass will overcome me once again, as I let his new album scald my senses and knock me flat on my Metal lovin’ ass. Metal be thy name.

* Walk Through Exits will be released on Philip H. Anselmo’s very own Housecore Records.
