Full of Hell & Merzbow - "Blue Litmus"

New Musicadmin1 Comment

Powerviolence outfit Full of Hell has been making a name for themselves over the past few years with some pretty brutal full-length recordings, but their interests reach outside of the dismal worlds of sludge metal, grindcore, and hardcore punk. In a series of EPs I believe they've been dropping since 2011, the band actually indulges in some experiments in noise music--not to imply that their LPs aren't noisy hellstorms, though.

With a healthy interest in the abrasive, the band has invited none other than Merzbow to participate in their latest collection of songs, adding some head-splitting feedback shots and distortion walls to the band's already aggressive collection of blast beats and punishing guitars.

Give a listen to the track "Blue Litmus" above, which sounds like Full of Hell as usual, but with a bit more noise peppered in between the riffs.
