A horrible hack

Annex - 'Melu' LP

added by Alex Deller on Thursday May 10 2018 in New Releases

Imminent Destruction have a new release out - the UK/Euro pressing of Annex's 'Melu' LP. Info is: "New LP from the Texas/Mexico border. While their last two records were catchy and melodic, this marks a step up with a sterling production, crystal-clear mastering and perfectly sculpted, ambitious tunes that display a massive improvement in depth and variation. The dark deathrock and post-punk influences familiar to fans of Belgrado or Arctic Flowers remain, but add infectious melodies, hypnotic guitars and a danceable backbeat, whilst Nikki's vocals once more deliver the punk brattishness of her roots whilst expanding into unique new territory. Lyrics in Spanish and English." North AMerican types can get it from Adelante Discos or Occult Whispers.

CBoard Forum Is Back

added by Andy Malcolm on Tuesday March 27 2018 in Site Info

Just a quick note to let you know that a new forum of sorts has been setup. It's quite different to the old one but should work nicely given the relatively low level of activity. You can access it via the bar above or at the link below. You will need to sign up for a Discord account to use it. It's a fair bit more modern than the old forum and has lots of lovely features. Check it out!
