full of hell merzbow
When it was announced earlier this year that hardcore/noise mentalists Full of Hell and harsh-everything engineer Merzbow would be collaborating, my stereo system took itself out back and committed suicide. Now, we can finally get our hands on what is by far one of the most unique releases of the year. Head on over the jump for the stream and what is left of my ears.

Outrun the Sunlight – Terrapin

terrapin-review

It’s easier to base one of these reviews around a common theme or a line that screams out at you and really encapsulates the overall point of the review. Sometimes, a struggle must precede the formulation of such an essential focal point where one tries to distill the essence of an album into a single phrase. With Outrun the Sunlight‘s Terrapin this was an easy task: a labor of love. What we have before us is what happens when an artist falls deeply in love with his own creation. Not to be mistaken with falling in lust, whereupon music quickly degrades into mindless masturbation, this unique state comes from having poured hours and hours into not only each track but also each note, turn and phrase. The result is a cohesive whole that flows from part to part in an organic fashion, exploring diverse themes while maintaining a distinct sense of self.

Bloodbath-GrandMorbidFuneralLarge

In 2009, my life changed irrevocably as me and three other good friends headed for Hellfest and then Graspop. It was my initiation into the international metal community and my first time in a large, European festival. The sheer number of bands I discovered that year is astronomical: Clutch, Electric Wizard, The Black Dahlia Murder and Down to name a few. I also so some bigger names perform live and had a thoroughly good time. Hellfest has a great location, great facilities and an all around endearing attitude. There have been some voices over the past few years claiming that the festival has since multiplied and has lost a lot of its charm. I don’t know about that. I do know about lineups. Head on over the jump to witness the majesty for yourself.

nothing-fourth-of-july

One of our favorite shoegazers Nothing have released a music video for their second song off of the bands recently released split with Whirr. The song is called, ‘Chloroform’, and the video is indeed about getting chloroformed and being taken on a ride in what appears to be an obsessive fan’s trunk. Check the video out after the jump, but make sure to look behind you before you do. You never know what could happen!
