EP REVIEW: Full of Hell and Nothing (split) – When No Birds Sing


 

 

On paper, this makes perfect sense. A collaborative effort between Full of Hell and Nothing stand as two of the most creative outliers in their respective genres, and the mission statement of When No Birds Sing (Closed Casket Activities) is to fuse the juxtaposition of their varied sonic palettes. Brace yourself, as Full of Hell is the overpowering force when the album opens.

ALBUM REVIEW: END – The Sin of Human Frailty


 

Sometimes a good ol’ dose of angry music is what the doctor ordered. This year certainly had some bangers of this category, but one of the best so far is END’s latest effort, The Sin of Human Frailty (Closed Casket Activities). Thirty minutes of sonic aggression comes jam-packed in the form of this metalcore supergroup’s sophomore full-length.

ALBUM REVIEW: Incendiary – Change The Way You Think About Pain


 

When looking up the meaning of the word incendiary you are met with the following definition ‘tending to excite or inflame’. This feels appropriate for a Metallic Hardcore band of the same name who have been tearing it up since 2007.

ALBUM REVIEW: Judiciary – Flesh + Blood


 

Texas metalcore hopefuls Judiciary don’t so much rewrite the mold on Flesh + Blood (Closed Casket Activities) so much as up the Lamb Of God meets Machine Head influences instead of poorly biting At The Gates like most other metalcore bands.

EP REVIEW: Full of Hell and Primitive Man – Suffocating Hallucination


 

Knowing well who, or what, Full of Hell and Primitive Man are separate, it is no surprise what to expect should these forces ever collide. Suffocating Hallucination (Closed Casket Activities) is just the very chaotic collaboration I expected, but even more sonically harsh and violent than originally thought. Five tracks drag you relentlessly through a half hour of torture and misery. To make this clear, these are all compliments of what is a literal, aural trip through Hell itself.

EP REVIEW: END – Cult Leader – Gather and Mourn


 

It is one thing to put together a memorable album, but to do so in the form of a split with multiple bands recording tracks for the album takes quite a vision. On many occasions, labelmates will end up putting out splits, or perhaps just friends in the scene. For END and Cult Leader, this match-up feels as natural as salt and pepper. In thirteen minutes (two songs per band), Gather & Mourn (Deathwish Inc/Closed Casket Activities) puts forth so much energy and aggression, no wonder only four tracks could fit.Continue reading


EP REVIEW: Primitive Man – Insurmountable


The three-man deathsludge machine, known simply as Primitive Man, has dropped four new blistering tracks in the form of an EP entitled Insurmountable (Closed Casket Activities). Mixing funeral doom, black metal, and harsh noise elements, this powerhouse from Denver, Colorado is one of the most abrasive, yet satisfying bands out there. After thirty-eight minutes, any first listeners will certainly start working on the rest of the group’s discography.Continue reading


ALBUM REVIEW: Vein.fm – This World Is Going To Ruin You


Fresh off an instant classic and a slight name change, Vein.fm have returned with another chaotic work of art entitled This World Is Going To Ruin You (Nuclear Blast). The Boston (yes, I am very biased on this one) hardcore outfit came back swinging in this sophomore release that certainly lives up to its predecessor without being a copy/paste job. While the expected frantic song structures and nu-metal influences are here as expected, I felt an increase of melodic moments in this record, and that is not a disparaging remark at all.
