Full Of Hell – Trumpeting Ecstasy

a0598543727_10

It took us a while but today we’re back with a new review. Let’s talk a bit about the new Full of Hell album. This band needs no big introduction. They were formed back in 2009 and since then they’ve been producing albums of hellish, overpowering music. The first Full of Hell album i ever listened to was the collaborative album they did with the japanese lord of the void. Yes, that album they did with Merzbow was trully something else. Their new album ”Trumpeting Ecstasy” was released this May by Profound Lore Records. First of all i’d like to say that the album’s cover artwork has made a huge impression on me. I think it’s one of the best album covers i’ve seen in a long time now. It’s simple and symmetric. It’s an image that leaves no room for misconceptions. Evil lies within. Eleven tracks are included in this album. In my opinion the listener gets the message from the very beginning. This is gonna get ugly. Once again grindcore blends ideally with black and death metal. So, yes this album sounds really brutal. It’s like an ongoing sonic storm that’s impossible to escape from. There’s definitely an imposing atmosphere throughout ”Trumpeting Ecstasy”. All of the album’s tracks hold immense amounts of raw power inside of them. Yet they feel like necessary parts of a certain procedure. I personally could not imagine this album without one of these eleven songs. Quite ecstatic about this album i’ll tell you what i think though. I think it is a great album. It’s definitely one of the best albums of this year so far. I sure as hell loved it and i have nothing negative to say about it whatsoever. In my opinion ”Trumpeting Ecstasy” gets a 9 out of 10. Here’s a link where you can also listen to this album.

Cloud Rat/ Moloch – Split


Hey everybody, we’re back with a new review. Today we review a split album. Cloud Rat is a grindcore/ punk band from the United States while Moloch is a sludge band from the United Kingdom. You might ask yourselves, a sludge band with a grindcore band? The answer is yes, it definitely works. If you don’t know who Cloud Rat is, then you should check out their latest, full length album ”Qliphoth”. That was a great album and that’s hands down. But let us go back to today’s split album. Cloud Rat’s side of the split is a big dose of awesomeness. This combination of grindcore and crust punk will leave no one unsatisfied. ”Amber Flush” is a nice track also. I didn’t expect to find a Crystal Castles type song there but i sure as hell enjoyed it. Now, Moloch is a different case. This split introduced me to this band and all i can say is that i’m really happy about it. Their music is beyond heavy. Here you’ll find really nice riffs as well as concrete basslines. If you like bands like Fister, Fistula, Corrupted and Noothgrush then you should definitely check out this band. I, myself, enjoyed this split album thus i’d like to recommend it.

Dakhma – Suna Kulto

We’ve been silent for a while but today we’re back with a new review. Dakhma is a three piece band from the United States. ”Suna Kulto”, namely their first Lp will be released on January 20 through Halo of Flies. Two tracks are included in this release. The band’s music is a more than exciting blend of black metal and neocrust. First track is called ”East” and it is an epic, monumental track. It’s not easy to write a twenty minute track. However these guys totally delivered. Prepare yourself for some stone cold riffs as well as some blastbeats. Yes, you’ll find many of them. I also liked their vocals. In my opinion their vocalist has done an excellent job there. It feels as if she’s singing her heart out. The album’s second track is called ”Coins” and i’m definitely down with this track as well. I have to say i’m really fascinated by their approach to black metal. They have filtered it, enriched it with some great melodies and neo crust aggresiveness. They definitely made a fan out of me and i’m pretty sure the same will happen with you. ”Suna Kulto” is one of the best albums i’ve listen to in months. This album is recommended for all fans of Iskra, Ictus, Down of Agony, Ekkaia, Downfall of Gaia, e.t.c. So if you’ re a fan of the bands listed above do yourself a favor and listen to Suna Kulto

Endorphins Lost – Choose Your Way

a4053950310_10
Endorphins Lost is a five piece, grindcore/ powerviolence band from the United States. The band came into existence back in 2010. Their new album ”Choose Your Way” was released on the 25th of November through Six Weeks Records. Fourteen tracks are included in this release. So let’s see what we’ ve got here. George Carlin we definitely miss you. It’s pretty obvious that these guys are not messin’ at all. From the first second you’ re experiencing a sonic storm that’s coming out of your soundsystem. The band’s music is super heavy and brutal with a lot of punk vibes. There’s an abundance of blastbeats here and that’s simply awesome. Lyrically their songs deal with the human psyche and i have to admit that’s really interesting. What i also liked is their vocals, some nice riffs and their concrete basslines. In general ”Choose Your Way” is a part of the extreme music universe that’s definitely worth checking out. Definitely recommended for fans of Spazz, Brutal Truth, Napalm Death.

Classhole – Classhole

classholeself-titled-1024x1024
Classhole is a four piece, hardcore punk band from New Orleans, LA, United States. ”Classhole”, which was released back in January, is the band’s debut release. It’s really good so i thought that we should say some words about it. Fifteen tracks are included in this album. As it has already been written this is good ol’ hardcore punk we’ re talking about. These guys don’t aim at reinventing the wheel. Nevertheless their debut album contains huge amount of raw punk energy. It’s no big secret that we love this kind of stuff. For example i’m always down with songs like ”Obsolete”. This is the kind of music that will wake you up in the morning. Definitely recommended for fans of black flag, poison idea, minor threat, christ on parade, e.t.c. So if you’ re a fan of those bands do yourself a favor and listen to Classhole.

20 best albums of 2016

Yes, it’s this time of the year. Time to choose my twenty favourite albums of 2016. It wasn’t that easy and that’s because this year we were lucky enough to listen to some tremendous music. This was also a fucked up year. Please excuse my language but it was. So many great artists passed away. Back in december we were shocked with the terrible news of Lemmy’s death. I still can’t believe he’s dead. His music though will live forever. And then David Bowie, Prince and Leonard Cohen died as well. Recently it was Micky Fitz of the Business who passed away. This was a sad year for sure. But life goes on. Anyways, here’s a list i made with my most favourite albums of this year. Count with me from 20 to 1.
