A Break From The Blog

Taking a break from posting on this blog folks. Not shutting it down but don't expect to see any new posts within the next month or two. I've been working hard on a YouTube channel for the last month and plan to continue filling that up. I'll be updating the YouTube channel every few days so feel free to subscribe:

Mammoth Grinder / Hatred Surge split (2011)

Genre: Crust / Sludge / Powerviolence

I haven't heard many 2011 releases yet so I shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions but this has got to be  candidate for the best release of the year. One of the heaviest combos I've ever heard. Mammoth Grinder brings a stompier and sludgier approach to this release than their style on Extinction Of Humanity, with much better vocal work. They rerecorded a new version of Societal Collapse from EoH that absolutely shreds along with the other two MG tracks on the split. Hatred Surge is not really my thing but I liked their side as well. Well produced, well played, and extremely heavy powerviolence. All fans of Instinct Of Survival, Nuclear Death Terror, Siege, and Golers NEED to listen to this split.

Genre: Punk / Hardcore

Libyans is an energetic female fronted punk band from Boston. Similar in style to Government Warning, Direct Control, and other Richmond, VA hardcore bands. The shining point of this band is definitely Elizabeth's vocals and catchy choruses that stick in your head long after the albums are over. For fans of Richmond, VA style hardcore and White Lung.

Brain Killer

Genre: Crust

Its been a while since I've posted any crust so here's some filler. They're not the best crusties on the block but it's some decent stuff to hold you folks over until I find some good 2011 treats. Brain Killer hails from Massachusetts playing a noisy style of crust that sounds kind of like a gross combination of nailbombs exploding and a bad recording of the Obscene Extreme Festival. Decent for fans of Driller Killer, Pisschrist, Anti Cimex, Wrathcobra, and Extinction Of Mankind.

Cult Ritual - LP1 (2009)

Genre: Hardcore

Interesting one here. Cult Ritual broke up last year and left us with this beautiful piece of hardcore. Not much else to say since I can't much info on this band and I just found them recently. The album is fairly short, maybe 25 minutes to half an hour, some songs are unusually long while others don't even break a minute. Good shit for fans of Slices, Confines, Pissed Jeans, Ceremony, Empty Vessel, Socialcide, and Poison Idea.
