Take Over And Destroy ‘Vacant Face’ CD/DD 2014

19th September 2014 at 12:08 pm

Take Over And Destroy

Under the initialism of T.O.A.D. several demented folks from Tempe, Arizona unleashed an EP called Rotten Tide in 2011, where I described them as a “six piece aural assault unit combining the visceral snarl of punk and grind with the more muscular resonance of…

Pord ‘Wild’ LP/CD/DD 2014

15th September 2014 at 9:33 am

Pord

It seems that there’s an even greater proliferation of quality noise rock bands around right now than even during the halcyon late eighties/early nineties days when the genre was first coming to prominence. Hell, the case could be similarly argued for just about any…

RABBITS ‘Untoward’ LP/DD 2014

11th September 2014 at 10:29 am

RABBITS

Apparently they are so intense, the name needs to be written in capitals, which seems quite fitting if you listen to the fury that is RABBITS. Described in their bio as debauchery-fueled ruckus, intoxicating hangover nightmares, scathing audio beatings you can’t help but ask…

Martyrdöd ‘Elddop’ CD/LP/DD 2014

2nd September 2014 at 9:32 am

Martyrdöd

Martyrdöd caught my interest purely because of the bands they listed as their influences. It’s shameful to admit that but hey, we’re living in a post-Last.fm world aren’t we? They reckon they’re into bands I listen to fairly regularly (Bathory), and bands that I’ve…

Pissed Jeans ‘Shallow’ CD/LP/DD Reissue 2014

26th August 2014 at 10:20 am

Pissed Jeans

Pissed Jeans, Pennsylvania’s finest purveyors of sludgey man-child hardcore punk, have enjoyed a slow and steady ride into the hearts of many punks and trendy’s alike, culminating in last year’s critically-lauded Honeys. But the story began in 2003 with a demo cassette which the…

Electric Funeral ‘Total Funeral’ LP/DD 2014

23rd August 2014 at 10:17 am

Electric Funeral

Punk, like most musical genres has taken many twists and turns over the years and has thrown up bands that exist under the same umbrella that bare little sonic and ethical resemblance to each other. Without debating the starting point we have reached the…

Okkultokrati ‘Night Jerks’ CD/LP/DL 2014

12th August 2014 at 10:51 am

Okkultokrati

Look, I know I sometimes sound like a broken record but I swear that the first thing I thought of when the darkly burbling synth intro to Night Jerks, the third full-length from Norway’s Okkultokrati, subsided and the sheet-metal one-two punch of opening number…

Funeral Horse ‘Sinister Rites Of The Master’ 12″/DD 2014

22nd July 2014 at 8:49 am

Funeral Horse

I first heard of Funeral Horse last year through an intriguing biography and the novelty of a retro tape format. The Doom Punk trio had been together about five minutes and yet there was much promise to be found in their Savage Audio Demon…

Comply Or Die ‘Northless’ DD 2014

19th July 2014 at 11:18 am

Comply Or Die

Belfast’s Comply Or Die unfortunately announced their decision to split shortly before they released Northless, their sixth release in as many years since they formed in 2006. Well-respected in their native Ireland, they will perhaps be most familiar to the rest of us for…

Satan’s Satyrs ‘Die Screaming’ CD/LP/DD 2014

3rd June 2014 at 8:46 am

Satan

Amid the hoards of dusty vinyl junkies going positively batshit over the Blood Lusting arrival of Cambridgeshires mystikult rockers Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats back in 2011, precious few paid a great deal of attention to an equally evil triumvirate as they careered out…
