Drain You - promo cover - self-titled - 2016 - #MO667099

DRAIN YOU – During my everyday Metal life, I always get turned on to at least one new band I’ve never heard of before. Today’s band is DRAIN YOU and they’re from Columbus, Ohio. The band’s bass player, Kevin, actually played me their 4 song demo tonight. I became (rather instantly) hooked by the raw onslaught of Post-Punk meets Sludge that DRAIN YOU belts out so freaking well.

Click that bandcamp box below and let Izzy’s vocals give you the cranium slap you’ve been asking for while the Punk noize of DRAIN YOU leaves you in a well-deserved state of sonic shock syndrome. Dig it.

Support DRAIN YOU And Buy Their Music. ‘Nuff Said.

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.

The invincible, noiseblasting killing machine, FULL OF HELL, this week confirms a pair of impending offensives upon the humans, including new tour actions and new studio documentation of their tactics.

FULL OF HELL has joined forces with harsh noise entity PSYWARFARE for a special split 12″ constructed for Record Store Day 2014. The A-side of the cooperative assault is overthrown by FULL OF HELL, stripping the hypergrind elements from their barrage, here focusing on their distressing racket/static infiltrations, sampling in choruses, looping feedback and experimenting with more distressing and melodic calls, within the track, “Thee Unsurmountable Wall.” The B-side is encompassed by “The Exotic Sounds Of…,” a mesmerizing twenty-one minute-long, occult mental passage into places unknown courtesy of Dwid Hellion’s PSYWARFARE.

Just days after the RSD split with PSYWARFARE is released, FULL OF HELL will embark on the next phase of their nearly nonstop touring crusade, this week confirming a ten-city East Cost run from April 24th through May 3rd with Toronto powerviolence crew, Column Of Heaven, and Cleveland harsh noise act, Nyodene D.

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.

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.

 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
