My Recent Metal Music Purchases – END IT, AHNA And SICARIUS On Cassettes!

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , , , on May 4, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

I purchased END IT One Way Track on cassette from M-Theory Audio. END IT is a Hardcore band, hailing from Baltimore Maryland. This is a 4 song EP and it was released earlier in 2020, via Flatspot Records. I dig Hardcore and you should too.

I purchased this AHNA Crimson Dawn cassette from the fantastic Caligari Records. If you’re looking for legit underground Metal and/or Extreme Music then Caligari Records is the epicenter of said genres! AHNA hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. AHNA is one damn good, ass-kicking band. I absolutely love this band.

M-Theory Audio delivered once again for me, with this brain splitting release from SICARIUS. If you love Black Metal, you must check out SICARIUS and later send me an annual thank you gift for the next 25 years or more. SICARIUS hail from The Inland Empire in California. Hell and yeah. I’ve been listening to this SICARIUS cassette in my car to and from work for several days now and it’s so inspirational!!

Thank you for visiting Metal Odyssey. With countless other things you could be doing, checking in on what Metal I’ve been buying really makes my Metal day. Stay safe and cherish life. – Stone

LONG LIVE METAL.

LONG LIVE CASSETTES.

The Grammy nominated Connecticut based juggernaut, HATEBREED, will release their new album “The Concrete Confessional” on May 13th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

“The Concrete Confessional” – Track List:
01. A.D.
02. Looking Down The Barrel Of Today
03. Seven Enemies

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.

Society Sucker - Promo Band Photo - 2014 - #3363

Get This Right Records confirms the September release of the new self-titled EP from Wilmington, North Carolina-based Hardcore outfit, SOCIETY SUCKER.

Delivering their own slamming brand of NYHC-influenced East Coast hardcore, SOCIETY SUCKER takes lessons from classic bands like Subzero, Next Step Up and Merauder, delivered in a brutal delivery akin to contemporary powerhouses Trapped Under Ice, Incendiary and Suburban Scum. Having quickly surged to the forefront of the quickly growing North Carolina hardcore scene since forming in the Summer of 2013, the band has performed heavily regionally along the East Coast with an extensive list of local and international touring acts.

Following their debut demo dropped last year, the Summer of 2014 will bring forth the first official release from SOCIETY SUCKER, having recently hooked up with Get This Right Records for the unleashing of the self-titled EP. With five enraged tracks loaded with more brutal hooks than a fleet of whalers, Society Sucker was recorded in February of this year at The Skylight Studio with Vince Ratti and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and bears bold cover art by Steven Kulesza.

SOCIETY SUCKER is a band committed to keeping hardcore hard. This is the proof.

Get This Right Records will release Society Sucker digitally and on 7″ vinyl on September 16th. Stand by for music from the EP and more to be leaked in the coming days.

Society Sucker – Track Listing:
1. Sentenced
2. Burdened
3. The Hangman
4. Repeat Offender
5. Powerless

With other shows and tour plans in the works SOCIETY SUCKER has locked down a hometown record release show for their new record on September 13th, with Criminal Instinct, Discourse, Heavy Chains, Fairlane, and Rapid Change joining the chaos.

SOCIETY SUCKER Live:
9/13/2014 Reggie’s – Wilmington, NC *record release show w/ Criminal Instinct, Discourse, Heavy Chains, Fairlane, Rapid Change

TWITCHING TONGUES – To Release “World War LIVE” Album Through Closed Casket Activities

Posted in hardcore, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on July 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

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.

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.

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

Empire Of Rats - promo cover pic - 2013

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

Founding member, guitarist and vocalist Jeff Lohrber exhibits a top-tier Hardcore performance on this EP; as does this entire band and they have a raging chemistry that boils over through each song. If ENABLER’s musical hostility can’t get your ass moving, then, you’re already six feet beneath the ground. ENABLER has proven to me they are a fiery force to reckon with within this genre and Shift Of Redemption only magnifies my said belief. Metal be thy name.

Shift Of Redemption was released via Think Fast! Records worldwide on April 9th as a digital download and 7”; the first pressing was limited to 1,000 copies, with 350 copies pressed on gold wax and 650 on clear.

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.
