PIG HEART TRANSPLANT – Iron Lung-Related Industrial/No Wave Project To See Release Via 20 Buck Spin

Posted in extreme music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on July 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Pig Heart Trans

The second full-length of demolition from PIG HEART TRANSPLANT — the solo works of one Jon Kortland of Iron Lung – has been declared for release this September, as a conjoined release between 20 Buck Spin and the band’s own Iron Lung Records.

The alter ego of Jon Kortland, one half of surgical powerviolence duo, Iron Lung, PIG HEART TRANSPLANT delivers both a vicious beating and violent outcome, however the operating methodology is an entirely different animal; slow, churning, industrial, electronic, painfully percussive, a bureaucratic nightmare of State Power with gears grinding the individual into a hallow shell, perfectly molded into one of Them. This is 1984.

Kortland’s second opus, For Mass Consumption is composed of twenty-eight tracks, each approximately forty-four seconds long, each song bearing a four-letter word, structured in a perfectly palatable way for optimum group adoption and mindless adherence to common purpose. Electronic manipulation, no wave guitar noise, abrasive hammering and eerie synthetic ambiance imbue the listener with the seedy malaise of manipulation on a societal scale. One might recognize the pulverizing brutality of early Swans on tracks like “Film” or “Pigs,” the pulsing throb of Brighter Death Now and IRM on “Coma” or even Robert McNaugton’s soundtrack work for Henry: Portrait Of Serial Killer on “1970” or “1980.”


For the first widespread preview of this aural torture, tune in to the fourth track from For Mass Consumption, “Born,” being broadcast from THIS LOCATION.

Undoubtedly a horrifying work of aural terror, PIG HEART TRANSPLANT‘s For Mass Consumption is the logical result of a culture bent on banal conformity and the futile struggle against its domination. 20 Buck Spin is pleased to bring this tormented future vision into the present in collaboration with Iron Lung Records. The album will storm North America first via 20 Buck Spin on September 2nd, followed days later on September 8th upon European populations. Vinyl and cassette editions will follow via Iron Lung Records shortly after.

New performances among the humans should be considered forthcoming, alongside additional previews of For Mass Consumption and more. Devotees of early Swans (early), SPK, Test Dept, Bastard Noise, Pharmakon, Godflesh and of course, Iron Lung, get hip to this one.

For Mass Consumption – Track Listing:

1. Drug, 2. Film, 3. Gift, 4. Born, 5. Male, 6. Numb, 7. Pigs, 8. Acts, 9. Pray. 10. Swim, 11. Thaw, 12. Coma, 13. Copy, 14. 1970, 15. Dirt, 16. Used, 17. Cuts, 18. City, 19. Line, 20. Home, 21. Scum, 22. Safe, 23. Half, 24. Edit, 25. Belt, 26. Mute, 27. Sold, 28. 1980

Media coverage about “Into the Kingdom of Graves”

“This is what extreme music should be and by drowning the listener in a world of devastating energy, Tyrants Blood proves their prowess within this crowded field.”- Violent Resonance

“Brutal, relentless, straight in my face, though still quite technical and over the top, it is quite hard to escape the thick and hateful atmosphere that drenches the record, a damned nice surprise!”- Voices From the Darkside

“Into the Kingdom of Graves is what death metal is about ladies and gentlemen (probably mostly gentlemen) and THIS is a band who are bringing it to a whole new level.”- Two Guys Metal Reviews

Unholy Anarchy Records - large logo - B&W

In conjunction with At War With False Noise (UK), Jerkoff Records (USA) and Blackseed Records (USA), Unholy Anarchy Records is set to release a brand new split 7-inch featuring Belgian grind gods AGATHOCLES and HOGRA.

AGATHOCLES have been around for over 25 years and in that time have appeared on well over 100 split 7-inch releases, as well as numerous comps, EPs, demos and full-length albums. This release sees the legendary trio take an unexpected departure from their traditional and patented mincecore style of grind and unleash two tracks that were written to compliment the power electronics of Pittsburgh’s HOGRA, who have built a solid catalog of splits, tapes and EPs over the past year.

The split is scheduled for an early September release. For ordering information, visit

Agathocles - Hogra - split - promo cover pic

A1. AGATHOCLES – “I Don’t Wanna See You (No More)”

A2. AGATHOCLES – “From Grey… To Black”

B1. HOGRA – “Vomica”

B2. HOGRA – “Bezoar”


Straight from the underground comes the newly launched Unholy Anarchy Records and Distro. Launched in the summer of 2013, Baltimore-based Unholy Anarchy is guided by the philosophy to release quality underground extreme music without boundaries – the only criteria being quality music from great bands.

Run by true Metal fans for true Metal fans, Unholy Anarchy focuses primarily on vinyl releases, but is open to a variety of mediums from acts that share a similar vision. The label’s first release will be a seven-inch split with Belgium’s AGATHOCLES and Pittsburgh, PA’s HOGRA. Due out in early August, the split will be a co-release with Blackseed Records, Jerk Off Records and At War With False Noise.

On the distro side of things, Unholy Anarchy has hundreds of titles on picture disc, 12″, 10″, 7″, CD and cassette formats in stock. Unholy Anarchy always offers free shipping on any order over $50.

Unholy Anarchy is an independently owned and operated family business that focuses on maintaining the importance of physical music formats, especially vinyl. The label was founded with the hopes of delivering quality underground Metal, Punk and Hardcore from artists and labels we respect.  They are dedicated to helping the scene, the bands, and delivering music to you. Unholy Anarchy has made every effort to stock rare imports and hard to find albums for our U.S. customer base, and hope you find Unholy Anarchy a collective that you can stand behind.

WARTORN “Iconic Nightmare” – Brutality Has Knocked… It’s Time To Listen.

Wartorn - Iconic Nightmare - promo cover pic

WARTORN – Rage. Resentment. Darkness falls upon the happy days of small town. The doors have been blown apart at their hinges and a swirling black cloud of hostility is in your face and commanding your Metal senses. This is all part of the cataclysmic eruption of Crust extremity, that awaits you, with this new WARTORN release: Iconic Nightmare.

The Extreme Metal crossover appeal is so enriched with WARTORN’s violent sound that it boggles my Metal mind. Wether it’s Death, Punk, Grind, Hardcore, Crust, Thrash or Black Metal that’s your obsession, the skull crushing totality of relentless and brutal sound that WARTORN administers on Iconic Nightmare is overwhelmingly grand.


There’s something to be said about the strength of merciless and Extreme Music. This is the stuff I listen to for strength to look my deceivers in the eyes and laugh at their tormented souls. WARTORN is as unsophisticated as anything you’ll ever hear in your Metal life and that’s a damn inspiring good thing too.

Extreme Music isn’t about plastic bells and red carpet whistles for me. No blatant way. Extreme Music, for me, is about the IMPACT and total disregard for our societal norms and WARTORN have torn the fuck apart any images of  humanity’s status quo in my Metal mind. Metal be thy name.

Wartorn - band promo pic - 2013 - #1

WARTORN: Bitty (Vocals), Ryan (Guitar), Toban (Guitar) Derek (Guitar), Ela (Bass) and Hart (Drums).



Iconic Nightmare

Unfinished Blueprint

Permanent Blackout

No Sanctuary No Salvation

Six Feet Under

Knee Deep In Blood

All Flags Still Burn


Burial Ground



Southern Lord has unleashed hell with the new full-length from Midwestern death squad WARTORN.

Since 2004 this Appleton, Wisconsin-based brigade has protested political tyranny and societal injustices with a devastating brew of metallic crustpunk. WARTORN has assaulted live audiences across thirteen countries across North America and Europe in support of releases on renowned crust/punk labels including Profane Existence and Crimes Against Humanity, while its members also take part in other active and notable acts like Dresden, Remission, and Words That Burn.

Taking their attack to the next level, the energy and production of their newest full-length Iconic Nightmare elevates WARTORN’s powerful songwriting and execution to new levels, surging with nine crushing anthems in barely twenty-five minutes. Diehards of Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, Tragedy and the like should not pass this one by.

The Guilt Of - Isolaation Room - promo cover pic - front

Decibel Magazine today hurls forth three exclusive tracks from Isolation Room, the forthcoming new limited edition vinyl release from THE GUILT OF…. Influenced by the streets, the sick, the lower class, the woods, wine, the hedonistic criminal bliss of New Orleans, and the destruction of time signatures, THE GUILT OF… is propagated by the demented duo of EyeHateGod’s Mike IX Williams and former Wolvhammer evildoer Ryan Mckern. Together they spew a dark, angst-ridden sound implosion of industrialized filth and audio decay.

Think Skinny Puppy on steroids, infused with tortured punk rock vocals, blackened guitar decomposition and power electronics. Isolation Room delivers seven tracks in over thirty minutes all mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin and will be issued by Last Hurrah Records on June 8th.


Check out the limb-severing goodness of the title track, “Social Recall Rewind,” and “The Ides Ballot” courtesy of Decibel Magazine at THIS LOCATION.
