Six Brew Bantha - Intravenously Commodified

New TracksadminComment

Victoria band Six Brew Bantha will be dropping a new record later this year titled Intravenously Commodified, but you can stream it now via the widget above. If you're in the market for some crusty, unforgiving grindcore and powerviolence, well, you don't need to look any further than the nine songs streaming above. What Six Brew Bantha doesn't have in dynamics, they make up for in unrelenting ugly. From the filthy guitar tones to the ear-popping snap of the drummer's snare, there isn't a corner of this album left uncovered in grime.

MONOLITHS. - "No Love" ft. Charlie Mansion (Death Grips Cover)

New Tracksadmin3 Comments

The Massachusetts rock outfit MONOLITHS. has a pretty diverse set of covers on this new Bandcamp release they've recently dropped, and Death Grips ranks among the handful of artists these guys decided to cover. Their song of choice: "No Love," which is one of the more frighteningly aggressive tracks off the experimental hip hop trio's NO LOVE DEEP WEB. Even though the verse riffs seem to be off tempo a tick, it's a pretty interesting rendition. Enjoy!

Soupcans - Parasite Brain EP

Scuzzy garage punkers Soupcans have a new EP out that you can stream via the embed above, and it's gotta be one of the most manic, filthy, and wild collections of songs I've heard in this style in a while. The band holds nothing back with brittle guitars, primal drums, and vocals that border on psychotic. Enjoy!

Kvelertak - "Månelyst"


Following 2011's self-titled debut, Norway's Kvelertak will release their sophomore LP, titled Meir, on March 26th via Roadrunner Records. Above, stream the video for album cut "Månelyst."

As it was properly introduced by their eponymous record, Kvelertak specializes in a metal/punk crossover brand which bears a potent rock'n'roll energy. Such an aesthetic has not been abandoned on "Månelyst," which utilizes galvanizing vocals, fist-pumping grooves, busy guitar solos, and driving riffs to create a pummeling yet fun-loving atmosphere. The Fredrick Hana-directed video mirrors this effectively, splicing together a series of horror clips that sometimes veer into endearing camp. If nothing else, the video is commendable for its representation of Kvelertak's juxtaposition of heaviness against a party-friendly attitude.

Saccage- Death Crust Satanique

A throat-slitting blend of crust punk, d-beat, thrash crossover, death metal, and even black metal on this new Saccage album, Death Crust Satanique. The Quebec band has an energy that isn't too unlike that of the last Toxic Holocaust album. Actually, I'd say they take it to a higher level of extremity.

Really crunchy production, tight performances, and some real adrenaline pumping on this one. Digging it a lot.
