The Aftermath – Vermine

Nuclear explosion footage is a fascinating and horrifying historical artifact: A massive mushroom cloud, houses within the blast radius being completely vaporized, unconscionable heat melting down everything in its path. We’ve all seen the footage. It’s a common and mortifying set of images that draw us back to humanity’s recent…

Closet Witch – Self-titled

I’m not gonna do it. I’m not going to spiel about how midwestern hardcore doesn’t get a fair shake and that there’s tons of underappreciated bands out there who can fucking trounce the next big dumb band from the next big dumb city. It’s true, but it’s redundant and (to…

Sectioned – Annihilated

There are times you just want to listen to music that’s going to decimate your frail mortal shell. There are also times you want music that will dazzle you with technicality, blowing your brain clean out of your dirty mind’s windshield. When you get a wild hair up your ass…

Aliens, excessive drinking (albeit of chocolate milk), bodily discharges and more all blend into an immature and deeply satisfying mix. And the music is damn good as well; head on down below to check it out!
