A horrible hack

Cloud Rat - 'Qliphoth' LP on the way

added by Alex Deller on Saturday April 25 2015 in New Releases

Good news: the new Cloud Rat LP is about a month away. Says IFB records: "Another epic full length dose of Cloud Rat's signature blend of heavy HC, grinding filth, and pure venom, this time adding Brandon Hill on noise duties." It's a co-release between IFB, Halo Of Flies, React With Protest, Moment of Collapse and 7 Degrees Records.

Flogging a dead WarHorse

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday April 8 2015 in Interviews

WarHorse pretty much crushed it, and with Southern Lord's reissue of the band's sole album still cooling on the slab it seemed a reasonable enough time to try to find out more about 'em. Click the link below to read an interview with the band.

New band - Trials Of Early Man

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday April 1 2015 in New Band

Pretty excited about this new band with members of Action and Action, CircusAct, The Good Wife and Caretaker. The first song in this 3 track selection in particular gives me good vibes. Kind of like early Van Pelt in a sort of a way. Check it out anyway.
