POISON IDEA – Declares Indefinite Hiatus; Cancels Upcoming Tour Dates

Posted in hardcore, hardcore bands, Music, punk, rock music with tags , , , on May 28, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Poison Idea - promo band pic - 2015 - #052715PIMO

Upon returning from their successful European Tour which consumed the past several weeks, POISON IDEA has returned home and announced that the band is going on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. The band has issued that they need to address some health issues and personal matters, and all upcoming shows for the indeterminable future have been cancelled or postponed. Additional details on the band’s future plans will be announced at a later date.

Portland, Oregon’s undisputed kings of punk, POISON IDEA released their critically acclaimed Confuse & Conquer LP through Southern Lord Recordings in April of this year. Setting everything in its path ablaze with the energetic pummeling assault the band has assaulted the planet with for three-and-a-half decades, and by incorporating the use of epic piano segues, the album is an instant classic for all POISON IDEA fans as well as one of the most undeniably important releases in the punk/hardcore realms this year.

The band’s first new album since 2006’s Latest Will And Testament, and first since the passing of their great friend and guitarist, the iconic Tom “Pig Champion” Roberts, Confuse & Conquer boasts thirty-five minutes of thundering, infectious rage recorded in the band’s hometown by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust) and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise) at Audiosiege, and proves that absolutely nothing can stop this legendary act and all attempts are a futile waste of time.

Confuse & Conquer LP is available on colored 12″ vinyl and CD including shirt and vinyl bundles HERE, and the album is streaming in full and available for digital purchase HERE.

Poison Idea - Confuse & Conquer - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #052715PIMO

Formed in 1980, POISON IDEA became a household name in the hardcore/punk scenes early in their career, and are known as one of the most notoriously in-your-face acts in the American musical underworld, with an enraged, high-energy live set even more rambunctious than the massive roster of singles, EPs, full-length studio and live releases and more, across a realm of labels including Pusmort, Alchemy, American Leather, Bitzcore, Tim/Kerr, Taang!, Farewell, TKO, Southern Lord, Candlelight, and their own Fatal Erection.

They’ve been an incredibly influential act to major performers including Nirvana, Pantera, Napalm Death, Machine Head, Eyehategod, Emperor, Turbonegro and an endless list of others. Soaking up respect from generations of hardcore punks and dishing none out, the dastardly denizens of mid-paced punk shred are in trademark form on Confuse & Conquer.

POISON IDEA‘s new masterpiece proves itself both identifiable and rewarding to listeners who have encountered them at any point from their 1980 birth onwards. Their forceful hardcore pummel is underwritten with dark humor, rage, disdain, and moments of real melancholy well beyond the usual remit of the genre, but it’s to be expected of Portland’s nihilistic champions, proudly unaligned with any other sound out there.

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.

Harley’s War Continues… New York Hardcore Legend HARLEY FLANAGAN Recording New LP For Southern Lord

Posted in hardcore, hardcore bands, hardcore punk, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 24, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Harley Flanagan - promo pic - 2014 - #03056

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

Posted in grindcore, hardcore, hardcore bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

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!

EMPIRE OF RATS – S/T Debut From Columbus Ohio’s Hardcore Band Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

EMPIRE OF RATS – The self-titled debut album from Columbus Ohio’s Empire Of Rats was released back on October 31st, 2013, via A389 Recordings. This Hardcore group has taken their inner disgust for society’s status quo, annoying antagonists and whatever else pisses them off, funneling it all into fuel for a freaking impressive debut for (what’s left of) my eardrums. Empire Of Rats don’t screw around with their sonic brutality. If its legit, underground Hardcore that you crave, Empire Of Rats serves it up with ferocity. It’s that easy to explain.

Everything about this debut is pummeling, with the exception of the 1:05 intro to Early Mourning, which boasts a calming acoustic guitar number before succumbing to a mid-tempo (all band) Metal instrumental; an instrumental that reminds me of Metallica’s Ride The Lightning days. Overall, the vocals, musicianship, energy and rage on this album are what diehard Hardcore fans yearn for and I highly endorse Empire Of Rats. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing: Leeches, Another Minute In Hell, Bottomless Pit, Untitled, Society’s Zero, Rats Reign, Sinking, Little From The World, We’re Dead, Exposed, Early Mourning

DROPDEAD – Providence Activists Dispatch Duo Of Joint EPs Via Armageddon Label

Posted in hardcore bands, hardcore punk, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , on February 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Dropdead - band logo - b&w - 2014 - banner

Longtime political hardcore/punk activists, DROPDEAD, have just released two brand new EPs via their own Armageddon Label, both of them split releases; one with RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA and the other with SYSTEMATIC DEATH.

Since 1991, Providence, Rhode Island’s DROPDEAD has protested humankind’s attrition towards the environment and its inhabitants, including each other, along the way amassing an impressive arsenal of fully independent releases, including several full-length studio and live LPs, and split releases with Crossed Out, Rupture, Totalitär, Unholy Grave, Suppression, Converge and others.

Having toured internationally, razing clubs, squats and basements on multiple continents for two decades, the band has been a major East Coast US contributor to inspiring entire new generations of extreme music fans to rise up against tyranny and injustice at maximum speed and aggression through their “fucking assholes don’t get it” credo. DROPDEAD‘s latest audio collapses come in the form of two new 7″ vinyl split releases with a pair of high-potency international acts.

One of these brutal head-to-head platters is with Vienna, Austria’s punk shredders, RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA, the female-fronted outfit raging in the riotous vein of Antischism, Capitalist Casualties, Los Crudos and Hellnation. The split leads with “A Fall Of Empires” and “Last Breath” from DROPDEAD on the A-side, and counters with “Donde Esta La Solucion,” “Asco” and “Blanco Y Negro” from RUIDOSA INMUNDICIA on the B-side.

The second new output comes in the form of theFighting For Life 7″ split with longtime Japanese punk/hardcore outfit, SYSTEMATIC DEATH. In existence since 1983 this outfit spews forth rabid political hardcore along the lines of Gauze, S.O.B.,Infest, GISM and Lärm, and here overthrows the B-side of the split with the tracks “Suji” and “Dashing,” while DROPDEAD overloads side A with their newest attacks in the form of “Foundation” and “The Final Chapter.”

Both splits are available now at THIS LOCATION.

Youth Forgotten - promo cover pic - 2014 - #19

Revolver Magazine is streaming the entire debut full-length from Cleveland quintet YOUTH FORGOTTENGhost Of A Fallen Empire, as the band releases the album into the public today.

Unifying former members of Dead Even, Salt The Wound, Above The Fire, Chimaira and Integrity, YOUTH FORGOTTEN forges straightforward, energetic, metal/punk-fueled hardcore. A high-octane release with the bustling angst, recalling the energy of the 1990s punk/hardcore movements, Ghost Of A Fallen Empire is a forty-minute, action-packed release packed with ten anthems aimed at lethargic, fad-driven acts that pollute the current scene. Recorded with Rob Arnold of Chimaira, marking his debut as a producer, Ghost Of A Fallen Empire is now officially available digitally, while the band finalizes plans for the upcoming physical pressing of the album.

Weed out the weak and resurrect the Ghost Of A Fallen Empire at Revolver RIGHT HERE.

With tour plans for the coming months currently being devised, YOUTH FORGOTTEN’s hometown record release party for the album will go down tomorrow evening, the act joined by nine bands considered true allies including Fuck You Pay Me, Teddy Boys, Cholera, Aricebo, Cop Problem and more. Every paid head at the door will instantly receive a handmade CD version of Ghost Of a Fallen Empire crafted exclusively for this event.

YOUTH FORGOTTEN-Ghost Of A Fallen Empire Record Release Show:

2/01/2014 The Foundry Concert Club – Lakewood, OH [info]

Critical Praise:

“Brutal riffs, hardcore punk intensity, anthemic vocals, an ear for meaningful technicality, all combined with a live show that more than punctuates the sentiment- Youth Forgotten should prove a force to reckoned with in 2014.” – Blow The Scene

“Contender for album of the year. If rating is something I would do I would give this one 10 sticks of dynamite.” – Hard Times

“If their past success in the metal scene is any indication of things to come for this band, then audiences should take notice of this release. This is only a warm-up for Youth Forgotten and I can’t wait to see what’s next.” – Broken Neck Radio

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

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

9/17/2013 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

If you give a shit about Counterparts, you will like this record.”

The band’s latest album Iconic Nightmare, released via Southern Lord in late January, takes their 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.

Stay tuned for more WARTORN tour updates in the weeks ahead.
