A horrible hack

An interview with Dauðyflin

added by Alex Deller on Sunday May 12 2019 in Interviews

Iceland's Dauðyflin play some intense, skull-scraping punk that's sonically and aesthetically distinct. The four members of the band were good enough to answer some interview questions - click on the link below to see what they have to say for themselves.

Pawns - 'Monuments Of Faith' 7" EP

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday April 17 2019 in New Releases

Inflammable Material have got a new record out - the 'Monuments Of Faith' EP by NYC punx Pawns. The label says: "ollowing up their well-received 'Gallows' LP, New York City's Anarcho-Deathrock hybrid return with three new tracks. Against the landscape drawn up by 80s-influenced post-punk, Pawns exchange full-on punk rage for a gloomy animosity by exploring dark and desperate melodies. Bass-heavy rhythms and choral guitar tones are topped off by vocalist Gage Allison's ominous baritone vocals in a rich maelstrom of bleak gothic punk. Title track 'Monuments Of Faith' and 'Shadows Of Hiroshima' are fast and melodic, whilst 'Broken' is a soaring, anthemic, Bauhaus-style stormer." If you're in north America or just like big records with not many songs on, you can get a 12" version from Near Dark Records.

The Retun of The Urion Ares

added by Andy Malcolm on Saturday April 6 2019 in New Releases

The Union Ares was a band that happened after Kolya but faded away. A rather unlikely scenario has now unfolded where original member Todd Giles has got together with folk from Scots emo band Carson Wells and started recording new music. Check out an excellent new song below, and get excited.
