Pious Faults 'Old Thread' reissue

added by Alex Deller on Friday September 20 2019 in Reissues

Pious Faults' 'Old Thread' LP is a bloody brilliant slice of hardcore gone post-punk, and I keep meaning to review it. In the time since I bought my copy from Penultimate Press it has evidently sold out, so they've pressed up a different batch with different covers. Check it out!

Frogskin / Taser split LP on the way

added by Alex Deller on Friday September 13 2019 in New Releases

A double whammy of Finnish hate is on the horizon: a split LP featuring the doom sluggers Frogskin and sludge-blasted noise-rock upstarts Taser. The labels involved are Iron Coffin, Penny Whistles And Moon Pies, Gate Of Deliria and Rämekuukkeli.
