EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Wallow In Noise Terror With Fawn Limb’s “The Rigid Mute”

Life is all about relationships. You enjoy the good ones and work towards maintaining them, reaping the rewards when the two parties really ‘click’. That’s why we’ve got more new Fawn Limbs for you.

Quite simply, they make music perfect for extreme-leaning Heavy Bloggers. Over the jump today we have the first look at the hellish kaleidoscope of a video for “The Rigid…
